Gingrich: EPA Is ‘Out Of Touch With Reality’

While railing against the EPA, Gingrich told an anecdote about how the agency suggested to Arizona “that maybe if they watered down the earth, they wouldn’t have the dust storms in the middle of the year. And people said to them, you know the reason it’s called a desert is there’s no water.”

“This is an agency out of touch with reality,” Gingrich continued, “which I believe is incorrigible, and you need a new agency that is practical, has common sense, uses economic factors and in case of pollution, actually incentivizes change, doesn’t just punish it.”
