What time is it in the wooooorld?

These are pictures of the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, Ohio on fire.  The river used to catch on fire all the time due to the pollution from the industry that was in the Flats at the time. 

I am currently watching the Republican debate and Michelle Bachman said she wanted to end the EPA.  The EPA was created after 1969 when the river last caught on fire.  Someone need to tell everyone who wants to end the EPA that RIVERS ARE MADE OF WATER, WATER IS NOT SUPPOSED TO CATCH ON FIRE.
