EPA in cahoots with Ag industry to poison Gulf of Mexico with agricultural chemicals

By Heyes: (NaturalNews) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) is asking a federal appeals court in New Orleans to vacate an order that forces the agency to rule on whether federal regulations are necessary to curb the flow of pollutants - mostly from agricultural run-off - into the Mississippi River.

The pollutants, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune newspaper, are major contributors to a low-oxygen "dead zone" that forms along the Louisiana coastline every spring, as farmers up-river plant crops throughout the Midwest.
