Environmental Propaganda Agency (Environmental Protection Agency or EPA nickname)

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was formed in 1970 to protect human health and the environment. Some critics believe that that the EPA supports environmental propaganda, such as “global warming,” and promotes an anti-business philosophy. The EPA nickname of “Environmental Propaganda Agency” has been cited in print since at least 1999 and has been frequently used by conservative radio talk show host Michael Savage.

Other EPA nicknames include “Environmental Persecution Agency” and “Extremely Pathetic Agency.”


Wikipedia: United States Environmental Protection Agency
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or sometimes USEPA) is an agency of the U.S. federal government which was created for the purpose of protecting human health and the environment by writing and enforcing regulations based on laws passed by Congress. The EPA was proposed by President Richard Nixon and began operation on December 2, 1970, after Nixon signed an executive order. The order establishing the EPA was ratified by committee hearings in the House and Senate. The agency is led by its Administrator, who is appointed by the president and approved by Congress. The current administrator is Gina McCarthy. The EPA is not a Cabinet department, but the administrator is normally given cabinet rank.

The EPA has its headquarters in Washington, D.C., regional offices for each of the agency’s ten regions, and 27 laboratories. The agency conducts environmental assessment, research, and education. It has the responsibility of maintaining and enforcing national standards under a variety of environmental laws, in consultation with state, tribal, and local governments. It delegates some permitting, monitoring, and enforcement responsibility to U.S. states and the federal recognized tribes. EPA enforcement powers include fines, sanctions, and other measures. The agency also works with industries and all levels of government in a wide variety of voluntary pollution prevention programs and energy conservation efforts.

Relative Risk Guidelines

(...)
Even with this callous disregard for the truth, the Environmental Propaganda Agency still found that the relative risk associated with ETS and lung cancer is 1.19 - far below the accepted minimal standard of 3 to 4.  For comparison, the relative risk of premature death associated with drinking three cups of coffee per week is 1.3. Drinking whole milk and lung cancer? 2.14.  No word yet on the health risks of passive drinking of coffee or milk. But give the EPA some time.
