The EPA has been hit with a veritable flood of scandals recently.

We covered the Animas River spill, caused by the EPA’s rush to solve a non-problem involving a mine’s wastewater, which impacted the water quality for several Western states.

President Obama has been busy this week, renaming the nation’s highest peak from Mt. McKinley to the traditional Alaskan name, Denali (meaning high one…which seems a clever way for Obama to actually name the place after himself with nobody being the wiser).
