Venting on PS Politics

PS’s “sensible” research has come up with good arguments for using silica-gel fuel vent filters on gasoline-powered boats as opposed to the EPA-required carbon filters (PS, January 2013), but can you please explain where the politics come in? Did you write to the EPA to inform them about the research before the requirement was enacted, or was this your gotcha one-upmanship? Could it be that their funding was cut by an anti-environment Congress, and they were unable to do more research? Please stick to what you know rather than your own political conjectures.

Really J.V.? Sailors value personal liberty and as far as I know it is still legal in this country to criticize government incompetence.
