Unfortunately I'm sure there are many more no one has noticed.

going to figure out that the EPA was created by government at the behest of industry to lull the public into a false sense of security?

For example, this explains why the Republicans in Congress are so vigilant about cutting funding for the EPA while greenwashing themselves as protectors of the environment. And why corporations and wealthy individuals spend millions of dollars lobbying Congress to undercut the authority and effectiveness of the agency and in writing in rules and loopholes that favor them. Same can be said for state EPAs which are particularly prone to sweeping environmental problems under the rug when under the pressure of business interests. All with a great deal of acquiescence from a neutered and pacified public. Thank goodness there are a few individuals that stand up to power and that there is still a free press in some areas that reports on environmental issues.
