My latest on Breitbart…
Greenwire’s Robin Bravender and Amanda Peterka apparently can’t even manage he-said-she-said journalism. EPA said everything was okay and, well, what else matters — especially if you’re a journalist who wants to have access to EPA in the future?
The latest episode in the continuing saga of EPA’s illegal human experiments.
But the agency still defends the tests as necessary for public policy — yet another illegal rationale.
Apparently it does not violate the Michigan Public Health Code to conduct illegal and dangerous human experiments on behalf of the EPA.
The Charlotte News & Observer reports:
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.
A University of Michigan researcher defends colleague Robert Brook against allegations of illegal human testing by attacking Steve Milloy.
Dropped after a week on the hand-scrawled recommendation of an unidentifiable board member.
The North Carolina Free Press reports:
From Detroit News’ Henry Payne:
Will Michigan cover-up illegal research conduct like North Carolina did?
CFACT has filed a complaint with the state of Michigan’s Health Professions Division alleging that the University of Michigan’s Dr. Robert D. Brook has conducted illegal human experiments on behalf of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
JunkScience.com readers have previously learned that EPA has been subjecting human study subjects (without obtaining informed consent) to exceedingly high short-term exposures to diesel exhaust (2-hours at roughly 30x typical ambient PM2.5 exposures). You’ve also learned that these experiments have . . .
My segment starts at about 14:50 into the show and goes for about 30 minutes.
Looks like news of the Nuremberg Code might not have traveled the 317 km from Nuremberg to Berlin until 1996.
The puppy mill bill would accomplish little if anything. The EPA bill would protect people from rogue government. Guess which one advances…
The agency continues to obstruct independent investigation of its illegal human testing activities.
In February we FOIA-ed EPA for an explanation of why/how a report describing an illegal experiment exposing children to diesel exhaust was deleted from its data base. EPA responded to our request today.
The North Carolina Senate has completed the fiscal impacts analysis of Senate Bill 187, the bill to make EPA’s PM2.5 air pollution experiments on humans a felony (on par with assassinating the Governor).
Does EPA really expect people to risk their lives for $12/hour in non-therapeutic experiments? Will Gina McCarthy be asked about this at her confirmation hearing?
Presumably our FOIA request asking who ordered the data deletion caused a rethink at EPA.
NBC-17 investigative reporter Charlotte Huffman nails this report on the EPA human testing scandal.
Here’s the Greenwire report.
While chlorine gas may have been used as a weapon by one side or the other in Syria, it was definitely used on people by the EPA.
“Will a state be willing to act against the Environmental Protection Agency’s practice of exposing humans to diesel exhaust emissions, when medical authorities and the courts have refused to intervene?”
Last October, the University of Washington retro-actively informed its human study subjects in an EPA-funded study going back 10+ years that its researchers had exposed them to a substance classified by the World Health Organization as “carcinogenic to humans.”
A North Carolina state law could make on-going EPA experiments at UNC-Chapel Hill a felony.
Just introduced North Carolina Senate Bill 187 would make EPA’s PM2.5 experiments on humans a serious felony.
EPA Stalin-izes an experiment exposing children to diesel exhaust.
Sens. Vitter and Sessions write: “Maybe the biggest reason to slow down [EPA’s new PM2.5] rule is that the EPA is talking out of both sides of their mouth.
