"Poison Spring: The Secret History of Pollution and the EPA"

E.G. Vallianatos

About the Program

Evaggelos Vallianatos, who spent 25 years as an analyst for the Environmental Protection Agency, argues that the EPA has failed miserably in protecting the public from harmful chemicals.  He says that the EPA is no longer a watchdog organization and has instead become the "polluters' protection agency," beholden to the chemical companies that the agency is supposed to regulate.  He says that neither political party is interested in reforming the EPA.  Mr. Vallianatos spoke at Pomona College in Claremont, California.
