AP Interview: Gingrich calls for replacing EPA (via Yahoo!)
Quote:
What you have is a very expensive bureaucracy that across the board makes it harder to solve problems, slows down the development of new innovations... We need to have an agency that is first of all limited, but cooperates with the 50 states... The EPA is based on bureaucrats centered in Washington issuing regulations and litigation and basically opposing things.

Gingrich proposes an Environmental Solutions Agency which "would pursue the development of a clean coal and rewrite regulations governing the development of small nuclear plants."
Quote:
I think you have an agency which would get up every morning, very much like the National Institutes for Health or the National Science Foundation, and try to figure out what do we need to do today to get a better environment that also gets us a better economy... there's a whole new emerging technology that allows you to build smaller nuclear plants, but all of our rules were designed for very complex, very expensive systems.

It's weird how everyone suddenly started paying attention to Gingrich again, for no apparent reason. Newt Gingrich: he's not out of dumb ideas yet.

People are paying attention to him because he's been talking about running for president in 2012!

He's always saying he's going to run president - it's his fallback statement to keep his name in the news cycle.

Totally. I'm pretty sure they interrupted that State of the Union speak to announce this. You've made it girl!
