Occupy Hades's insight:

The Environmental Protection Agency recently announced that it will allow companies to monitor their waste dumping activities and to keep track of the levels of pollution themselves. No one yet knows what that means, but everyone is certain that no corporate polluter can be trusted. So it's a good idea to keep up with their political activities, starting with their lobbyists.
