The EPA’s McCarthy, shows up, utters the right words but declines to visit the Gold King mine site.According to the Denver Post, McCarthy shows up, says she “couldn’t be more sorry” but declined to visit the mine because the 55-mile trip, “some of it over unpaved road — was too far to visit.”
“As you know, it is a significant distance away, but I did visit the river. I took a look at it myself to get a sense of the river,” McCarthy said. “And I think the good news is it seems to be restoring itself, but we have continued work to do and EPA is here.”
And I guess it’s really OK because the river is returning to normal. And being the EPA administrator, just looking at a river is all she really needs. So, mother McCarthy takes time from her busy schedule of saving the planet from cahbahn pollution, flies out to Colorado and then can’t take the time to go to the scene of the crime? Can we calculate the asthma cases and premature deaths from all that carbon pollution for no real purpose?
Can you imagine the howls if the head of a private company pulling such stunt.
