USEPA was formed in 1970, the same year Earth Day was created. And, as EPA's Earth Day celebration website points out in an online history, it was "a time when rivers caught fire and cities were hidden under dense clouds of smoke."
It's also the year that yours truly was graduating from college. 'What a long strange trip it's been.' Since 1970, pollution globalized along with US supply chains. Now, it's rivers burning and smog churning in China. The Agency really has to think globally.
