Pat Robertson: EPA May End Up Killing ‘A Couple Billion People’ (Video)

Televangelist and multi-millionaire Pat Robertson today on his 700 Club TV show said said the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is “out of control” and may end up killing “a couple billion people.” There are currently an estimated seven billion people on earth, so Robertson’s claim means the EPA, by controlling pollution, may end up killing, say, one-third of the planet’s human population.

Let that sink in for a moment.

Robertson, a former Southern Baptist minister, former GOP presidential candidate, is reportedly worth up to $1 billion.

Robertson falsely states that the EPA just ignores Congress, while ignoring the fact that the Supreme Court has ruled the EPA has a constitutional mandate to do the work it is charged with doing. In fact, several states sued the EPA in the Supreme Court — for not doing enough — and won.

Apparently, Pat Robertson thinks dirty air and water are OK because God will just fix things?

Robertson specifically mentions the fossil fuel industry. Perhaps he should allow us to examine his investments?

Good lord!

My friend's parents are big fans of Fox News loudmouths. They are totally in favor of deregulation, a buzz word they drop without a clue what it could entail.

Dark brown air in LA is a thing of the past, thanks to regulation.
Our water is more or less safe to drink, thanks to regulation.

When these people get what they want, deregulation that will allow corporate interests to exploit and poison the planet we live on, they'll be bawwing the loudest about their purple, toast-flavored water and brown air. Mark my words!

My G-d! My G-d! The dawn has broken. I thought he was going to blame it on the gay's again. Can you imagine? Mr. Robertson has finally chosen a good cause to harp on. Something much more important than Prop H. Praise the L-rd. I can finally have some respect for Mr. Robertson.

Huh?

Lemme get this straight — you AGREE with Pat Robertson that Republican President Nixon's EPA Environmental PROTECTION Agency practices KILL … ANYONE …?!?

And, that makes you RESPECT Pat Robertson?!?

Please explain — I'm all ears, and I'd love to understand what is your experience on this subject.

Specifically, at least, please identify ANY EPA-caused deaths, especially any nearing a billion people in number.

Thanks.
