I think the real question is: Who is paying these EPA officials off? Seriously, I thought the U.S Environmental Protection Agency was implemented to "Protect the Enviornment"... With this kind of corruption responsible for the preservation of our wetland ecosystem, I'd say that we are fighting a losing battle. But then again, when did bueaurocrats ever give a care about the enviornment?
