Yes, you paid for this.  Across the country, Americans were horrified at the release of highly contaminated water from an abandoned mine in the American west.  The spill ended up in the quite beautiful Animas River, a tributary of the Colorado.  In the aftermath, and with a little digging, it is quite obvious that the Environmental Protection Agency had knowledge that this spill was more than possible if the plug that held all that contaminated water back was disturbed.  That being the case, why hire people to “clean up” the site who would do this:

Yes, rather than work to plug the hole back up, these geniuses took video.

Oh, but wait, there’s more.  The EPA released the footage QUIETLY last week, well until Congressman Bill Johnson started asking questions of EPA Assistant Administrator Mathy Stanislaus.  The heavy hand on the bleeper should say something to everyone, and Mr. Johnson wanted answers he wasn’t getting.

The question of whether this incident was really an accident will linger for some time.  In the meantime, it’s not like the EPA wasn’t warned.  There is quite a bit of speculation that this spill was actually deliberate for a number of different reasons outlined in a former geologist’s letter to the editor to The Silverton Standard and The Miner prior to the “accident.”

Ultimately, this incident will be exposed for whatever it really is, in the meantime, the EPA has some explaining to do, not that Mathy Stanislaus will give any answers.
