“It’s disturbing...” Indeed it is.
I first started reading about this a couple years ago. It seems to be some sort of a natural law: government bureaucracies are targeted for subversion by special interest groups – and they succeed more than they fail. Just in our federal government, one can see this in the Department of Education, Homeland Security, Department of Energy, Labor Department, Department of Agriculture, and many more. So I guess we shouldn't be too surprised to see it happening to the Environmental Protection Agency, too.
This problem won't get fixed with a ballot box revolution that replaces the Democrats with Republicans, as both parties are complicit in this. Fixing this would require a more profound change, and I don't expect that to happen in my lifetime...
