it all amounts to.
We'll start with choice (B).
The passage doesn't tell us whether or not the CDC is good at its job, so (B) a definite no.
For the record, we really hope that something called the Center for Disease Control is good at its job.
Chances are, they're the only thing standing between us and the Zombie Apocalypse.
(D) tries to put all the blame on FEMA.
It's tempting, because a lot of people heaped a ton of blame on FEMA for mismanaging the
human crisis after hurricane Katrina.
This passage, however, doesn't go into all that, so we can say no to choice (D).
(A) is probably the most tempting one yet.
The author of the passage does seem to be deeply concerned with how the federal government
is handling environmental and health concerns.
Answer (C), however, claims that the passage is targeting the ATSDR specifically.
This is the correct answer, because the author spends almost the entire passage breaking
down just how the ATSDR really messed things up.
We're guessing it wasn't a fun day at ATSDR headquarters when this report came out...
