Knowing the (Regional) Administrator:
Trey Glenn holds the top administrative spot in the EPA's Region 4 ( AL, FL, GA, KY, MS, NC, SC, TN).
epa.gov/newsreleases/e…
Prior to his role at the EPA, Mr. Glenn worked at the Alabama Department of Environmental Management from which he quit while under investigation for ethical violations over accepting "gifts" from "Alabama power."

During Trey Glenn's tenure at ADEM, enforcement actions dropped precipitously.

Glenn went on to consult to AL law firm, Balch and Bingham in their actions to bribe AL state Rep. Oliver Robinson.
al.com/news/birmingha…
Two lawyers at Balch and Bingham and a VP at coal company, Drummond, were indicted for their actions at Balch and Bingham.

The alleged conspiracy, with Glenn's assistance, aimed to bribe state rep. Robinson "to oppose prioritizing the cleanup of a north Birmingham area turned EPA Superfund site, and to oppose expanding the area."
al.com/news/birmingha…
With Glenn at the top regional administrative position, he's in a great place to enact Drummond's desires for the superfund site. Does he have a non-disclosure agreement with Drummond from when he worked for Balch & Bingham? That would be "convenient" for him.
AL rep. Oliver Robinson already pled guilty to accepting bribes, so getting a guilty verdict from the people who bribed him shouldn't be all that difficult.

Watch to see if Andrew Wheeler, acting EPA Administrator, moves to extricate or restrict Glenn's role in Region 4. Or does Wheeler serve corporate masters, first?
chicagotribune.com/news/nationwor…
We repeatedly witness the folly of thinking that government can run like a business or that business leaders can make great politicians. One person, or president, cannot serve everyone's divergent desires, but serving the corporations serves no voting constituents.

Overuse of nitrogen by US farms leads to nitrogen runoff into the Mississippi River. That water travels to the Gulf of Mexico where it indirectly creates a hypoxic zone in which fish cannot live. It's the size of New Jersey!

oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/deadzone…
This costs the US about $82m/year but also forces fishing boats to travel further which increases CO2 output from fisheries.

If nitrogen runoff into the Gulf of Mexico dropped to zero today, it would take decades for the region to recover.
