EPA stonewalls records request re EPA-funded diesel exhaust tests on children

JunkScience.com has filed a Freedom of Information Act request with EPA for all records pertaining to EPA-funded research involving the exposure of CHILDREN to DIESEL EXHAUST, which occurred at the University of Southern California in the mid-2000s.

EPA denied JunkScience’s request for a fee waiver and expedited processing stating:

You have failed to demonstrate that the release of the information requested significantly increases the public understanding of government operations or activities.

EPA has already tried (unsuccessfully) to scrub information related to these tests from its web site.

EPA’s next move will be to delay and to put a discouragingly high price on the records. Stay tuned.

  1. Seems like something of a red line being crossed here….

  2. I think it is time to change these headlines to put “Obama” in front of the Department title, e.g., Obama EPA …. Obama will only act if he sees his name being attached to massive crimes. He doesn’t care if someone else is blamed.

  3. Maybe the GOP senators should make that request for information ?
