Erin Brockovich is the California-based lawyer who became an international star when the story of her lawsuit against Pacific Gas & Electric was turned into a movie starring Julia Roberts, who went on to win a Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal.
In the movie Brockovich fights on behalf of ordinary people whose health is placed at risk due to the utility’s handling of waste.
Brockovich, who is still fighting against environmental health dangers, reportedly had this to say about the Obama administration’s Environmental Protection Agency” “The EPA is absent.”
Her complaint is that the EPA keeps adding regulations to the point where it’s almost impossible for any company to comply. “You almost set them up into a position where they cannot comply.”
