EPA is taking live public comment today and tomorrow on the Trump EPA proposal to leave the current PM2.5 standards where they are. Here is my oral testimony.
Good morning. I am Steve Milloy. I publish JunkScience.com.
I commend EPA for leaving the PM2.5 NAAQS where they are — although they really should be rolled back entirely.
The PM standards were conceived and executed by EPA staff and EPA-funded researchers who committed large-scale, far-reaching scientific fraud.
EPA’s CASAC has acknowledged as much in its letter reviewing the EPA staff’s draft PM assessment:
CASAC stated that the EPA staff’s PM assessment “… does not provide a sufficiently comprehensive, systematic assessment of the available science… due largely to lack of a comprehensive, systematic review of relevant scientific literature.”
