  1. To me, this is the same as asking a fox to count the hens in a hen house. Then, when he reports a count less that we had counted earlier we ask him to do it again. All to be followed by shock and amazement that the next count is even lower. No surprise to me because a fox is a fox no matter what his title happens to be.

    A functionary of the EPA is an obedient functionary of the EPA and will follow orders or be out of a job. Hence, nothing that the so called scientific adviser will say will have any relevance to the issue you raise. The functionary either agrees with the way the EPA behaved or is totally ineffective in the matter of advising the EPA about science and the proper scientific method. Either way, the response will be meaningless. Whitewash will be a too generous of a term for it.

  2. Thank you for having the courage to ask EPA to investigate!

    E.M. Smith has an insightful analysis of the reasons why government policies are now directed by “clueless academics.”

    Almost every major field of study has been seriously compromised by the misuse of federal research funds to promote false government propaganda since 1945.

    The current crop of academics are indeed clueless about basic principles of science needed to save society from impending collapse.

    There is no more pressing issue than restoring integrity to government science.
