More than secret science. Now we have secret conflicts of interest.
EPA recently named the members of the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) Particulate Matter Review Panel for 2015-2018.
This is the body of outside science advisors that EPA uses to review (read “rubberstamp”) EPA’s junk science fueled jihad against U.S. industry via abuse of the Clean Air Act.
I asked EPA for the conflict of interest disclosure documents for the group. I was refused — even after allowing for redaction of any truly confidential business information.
Here is the e-mail chain between me at Aaron Yeow, the EPA employee who manages CASAC.
Many of these CASAC members are EPA contractors. Conflicts of interest are likely rife. EPA is trying to keep it a secret.
A FOIA request has been made. Stay tuned.
