Skip to comments.Letter to Editor PREDICTED COLORADO EPA SPILL So EPA Could Secure Superfund Status

Last Wednesday, a small EPA-supervised work crew inspecting the Gold King mine accidentally knocked a hole in a waste pit, releasing at least three million gallons of acidic liquid laden with toxic heavy metals. (ABC)
This letter to editor, posted below, was published in The Silverton Standard and The Miner local newspaper, authored by a retired geologist, one week before EPA mine spill. The letter detailed verbatim, how EPA officials would foul up the Animas River on purpose in order to secure superfund money. It the Gold King mine was declared a superfund site it would essentially kill future development for the mining industry. The Obama EPA is vehemently opposed to mining and development
The EPA pushed for nearly 25 years, to apply its Superfund program to the Gold King mine. If a leak occurred the EPA would then receive superfund status. That is exactly what happened.
The EPA today admitted they misjudged the pressure in the gold mine before the spill just as this editorial predicted.
The letter was included in their print edition on July 30, 2015. The spill occurred one week later.

Believable in this administration of Marxists.
Accident my ass. Nothing this criminal regime does is by accident.
You have to make it bigger to read it maybe some knows how to post it
And this is why EPA officials at the site need to go to jail. These risks were known, the spill was at best reckless if not intentional. There’s your criminal culpability.
But since it's the US feral government, it's OK.
Everything is political with leftists. Everything is political with Obama.
Never let a perfectly good crisis go to waste, and never waste the chance to create a crisis.
There is no such thing as an accident. It’s all premeditated carelessness.
Shades of the BP Gulf disaster
Except no big corporation for Obama to sue for reparations?
We sue the EPA we are suing ourselves!
This needs to be seen far & wide...
Does ANY department work properly under this administration?
EPA bigs need to be carted off to jail for this. If this had happened during a pubbie administration they would already be there.
> Accident my ass. Nothing this criminal regime does is by accident.
I’ve heard of coincidences but thus sure doesn’t sound like a coincidence now.
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I don't add you to the list...
I love that photo.
I’m sure this is just a coincidence like Elizabeth Birnbaum of the Dept of Interior Minerals Management Service giving BP a waiver on testing the blowout preventer shortly before the BP Horizon accident.
The defendant in this case conducted a demolition project which released a significant amount of water contaminated with dust and debris directly into the Chadakoin River, endangering public health and the environment,

I wonder if that carelessness involved a sedge hammer or pick ax in this case...
