EPA and the coal industry

Why are American workers anti-EPA and wanting to impeach Obama for the EPA requiring standards on coal companies to clean up their emissions and toxic ponds which leak into our rivers and earth contaminating it and making it unusable for human consumption, killing fish, and other wild habitat. Why aren't these workers marching on their employers who are the one's contributing these toxins and climate change producing substances into our air, water and land? Why aren't they demanding that their employer's clean up their act? That is what the EPA is trying to get these coal industries to do.

This is not local, it affects the whole world. The coal industry needs to be held accountable, and we should support the EPA, not harass them for their efforts to keep our world safe from toxic contaminants.
