EPA, making the world safer 50 years too late

The EPA has just announced something that leading scientists have known for decades: Greenhouse gases carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons and sulfur hexafluoride are, like, a total drag on our ozone layer and pose (or may, according to the EPA) health hazards.

The agency responsible for allowing factory farms and big-time polluters to keep running our earth into oblivion is now acknowledging that maybe some of the shit these places produces is problematic. Well, thanks, I guess. I'm sure the future generations who won't be here will be thrilled to know that, in our last hour, America's environmental protection agency stepped up to the plate! Kudos.

Here's my little "how you can help" slip-in: Stop eating meat, drinking milk and eating eggs. I don't think you'll find a single more polluting, exploitive and resource-intensive industry. Water use and pollution. Soil degradation and destruction. Deforestation and desertification. Air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Disease, cancer, death. By it's very nature, animal exploitation and abuse. There is my public SAVE MY EARTH service announcement for the day.
