When evil factories, cars, trucks and coal fired electrical power plants supposedly pollute the planet, Mother Earth is too fragile to clean up the by herself, we need massive programs and restrictions to solve the problem.
But when the liberal Obama EPA screws up and releases tons and tons of extremely harmful mining material into several rivers In Colorado and other states in the West, well Mother earth is so tough that it cleaned up the rivers in a matter of days.
From Fox News:
The mistrust Native Americans have long harbored toward the federal government has gone to another level in Navajo territory land, where residents angrily scoff at the Environmental Protection Agency's assurances its accidental mining spill won't foul the key San Juan River floodplain they depend on for their lives and livelihoods.
EPA Secretary Gina McCarthy rushed to the region this week in the wake of the spill at the defunct Gold King Mine near Durango, Colo., to announce that the river system that includes Cement Creek and the Animas, San Juan and Colorado rivers will not be seriously impacted by a spill of 3 million gallons of mining wastewater laden with heavy metals. But McCarthy's claim that ecosystem was "restoring itself" did not convince Navajo leaders.
