The EPA and USDA were put in charge of this Task Force Report, and of course critics raised the question of putting the foxes in charge of the chicken house. Well, the foxes have chicken feathers on their breath. The evidence is that we may be experiencing the most massive poisoning of the environment ever and the Task Force has conveniently avoided this, to the delight of the chemical companies.
