To say our Watchers are ineffectual is a gross understatement. Who has appointed the new Director of the EPA? Who IS the new Director of the EPA, whose interests does he base his decisions on? Who is OUR administrative environmental/coastal overseer/boss/watch person? Who are Oman's environmental overseers if any? Find out the answers and cry more tears for the Earth. Noted.
