Evaggelos Vallianatos, who spent 25 years as an analyst for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), talked about his book Poison Spring: The Secret History of Pollution and the EPA, in which he argues that the EPA has failed to protect the public from harmful chemicals. He argued that the EPA was no longer a watchdog organization and had instead become the “polluters' protection agency,” beholden to the chemical companies that the agency was supposed to regulate. He also said that neither political party was interested in reforming the EPA. Mr. Vallianatos spoke at Pomona College in Claremont, California. close
