The US EPA has a science advisor? For what?
Oh, looking at his CV, Gaia worship and NRDC:
Lisa Jackson, head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), announced today that she has picked Glenn Paulson to be her science adviser. Paulson will replace Paul Anastas, who returned to Yale University in February. “I’m very positive about Glenn; he’s superb,” says public health expert Bernard Goldstein of the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health in Pennsylvania.
Paulson received a Ph.D. in environmental science in 1971 before joining the Natural Resources Defense Council to work on air and water pollution issues. He spent several years at the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, where he was the primary author of the state’s Superfund law. Most recently, Paulson was associate dean for research and professor of environmental and occupational health at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, a position he left about a year ago to return home to Wyoming.
