NC's Burr proposes folding the EPA into the Dept. of Energy

Sen. Burr: We don’t need no stinkin’ environment | theCLog

Richard Burr's office, seen here emerging for his recent dispatch.

A group of Senate Republicans led by Richard Burr of North Carolina wants to combine the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy into one agency. They claim the merger would save money — but a deeper look at the plan and its backers raises questions about other, dirtier motives.

“This common-sense approach will reduce duplicative and wasteful functions across these two agencies and streamline our approach to a comprehensive, coordinated energy and environmental policy,” Burr said in a statement.
He wants to do what to what?! Every time his office rises from the swamp and Senator Burr (LOD-NC) emerges to make a statement, you just know it's going to be something that would make Lex Luthor proud. Also, remember that when translating Burr-speak to Plain English, "common-sense" means "twisted and malevolent."
