Colorado Animas River-, EPA spill, toxic waste
Colorado Animas River-, EPA spill, toxic waste

With friends like the EPA who needs enemies? Remember… they’re the Environmental PROTECTION Agency! All you need to do is take a look at the photos online of a once pristine Colorado Animas River and you’ll see what I mean.

How much do you think the EPA will be fining itself?

The DailyBeast reports:

“…the Environmental Protection Agency looking into pollutants at an abandoned mine in southwestern Colorado accidently [sic] unleashed around a million gallons of polluted water with their heavy machinery on Thursday. Rushing into the pristine Animas River, the water immediately turned a brilliant yellow-orange from the heavy metals contained in the waste, which include zinc, iron, copper, and more.”
