The EPA does not engage in investigation. Its a non-investigation bureaucracy. In the most recent example of a non-investigation efficiency challenge in the EPA, the EPA issued a final rule on coal-dust emissions from existing coal plants in May 2011 to replace an initial final rule issued in early 2010. With the last rules it imposed a complex set of emission reduction requirements, based on the Clean Air Act, that required both new and existing coal-fired electric plants to institute controls to reduce coal-dust emissions. Coal plants were not given a grace period but must go into full-scale compliance with the new rule by a specified date. (Does this remind anyone of the Clean Power Plan?) No regulatory body in the history of jurisprudence has ever issued such a rule without consulting with industry. To the contrary, the coal industry had been continuously asking for EPA to be more hands off, arguing that the existing plants were already meeting the requirements of the existing rule, that its future viability was at risk due to EPA cumbersome rulemaking. By all accounts, the coal industry has more experience and expertise at the EPA than the EPA. The EPA was not consulted at all.
The history of the business of film photography is prety much the history of the business of movies. As film became the medium of choice for one class of creation, another class began to demand something cheaper. With the advent of the 8mm, 16mm, and Super 8 format films, cheap semi-professional films started to crop up as well. Years of experimentation with new ides and new technologies bled into the market as home and consumer film were made in larger and larger sizes, more and more sophisticated color filtering technology was tried, and, as the costs fell and the quality improved, the amateur and semi-professional sectors of the market started to be flooded. For a while it was a really good thing. Within a few years all of the big names in cinema were making stuff for all three of the above mentioned formats, and the quality of the hardware seemed to rise with every new format. In fact, the great and wonderful movie Scream and Scream Again was made in 1985 in Super 8, as this forgotten but superlative home movie from the late 80s shows us. But, as with every good thing that seems to go too far, the mighty can fall as well. Nowadays, the semi-pro movies seem to be made by the pros and the pros make mostly videos for (for lack of a better word) the iPod. So, while the film camera has pretty much disappeared from the cinemascape, the ambitious have turned to making movies and the pros and semi-pros continue to make video, from short video to full length feature movies and everything in between.
