Reply To: Cuyahoga River and Creation of EPA


Thanks to the Cuyahoga river which started the Clean Water Act and the EPA, we now have the EPA trying to regulate ditches and gullies on private land.

Unfortunately I cannot argue against the formation of the EPA and the Clean Water Act, because in a free market rivers like the Cuyahoga start catching on fire.

Is there no historical evidence whatsoever to suggest that a free market does *not* cause rivers to start catching on fire?

Am I the only one who thinks this is important?
