Welcome to the home of “health denial.”
Politico reports today that:
Environmentalists have a new nickname for members of Congress questioning the public health benefits of the EPA’s proposed air rules: health deniers.
It’s a “new wing of climate science … now denying the medical science,” said Peter Iwanowicz, vice president of National Policy and Advocacy at the American Lung Association. “They believe that EPA has made this all up.”
Yes, the EPA has made it all up. below is some of what JunkScience.com has been saying:
- EPA’s Clean Air Act: Pretending air pollution is worse than it is
- Show us the bodies, EPA
- American Lung Association says ‘more will die’ but refuse to provide proof
- EPA’s air-quality overkill
- Air pollution scare debunked
- PM2.5 not linked with cardiac emergencies
- Valberg challenges EPA air quality science in House hearing
- EPA shows us a body?
- Does air pollution cause cardio-respiratory problems in infants?
- EPA’s desperate new smog scare
- Debunked: Children more vulnerable to air pollution
- Ozone not correlated with asthma hospitalizations, reports new JunkScience.com study
The green are upset because what we’ve been saying has gained traction in Congress.
- Most recently, six House physician-Members accused EPA of peddling dubious health claims.
- In June, JunkScience.com torpedoed the American Lung Association at a Senate hearing.
- In July, even Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich took note of what JunkScience.com was saying.
- In September, Science Subcommittee Chairman Andy Harris asked EPA for its “secret science”.
