USA: Here’s an example of a regulatory agency serving the industry not lthe people | 16Ago2010 19:02:47

An EPA whistleblower who attended this meeting said the report was "scientifically unsound." There are publicly available studies documenting more than 1000 cases of groundwater contamination. [Here is another classic example of government agencies serving the very industries they are supposed to regulate.]
