EPA has proposed to tighten its standards for ozone in outdoor air. However, ozone in outdoor air, especially at current levels, doesn’t hurt anyone and the EPA knows it… but EPA doesn’t want you to know it. Here is a short exposé based on EPA documents obtained via the Freedom of Information Act.
JunkScience.com readers know that EPA has been conducting illegal and basically secret laboratory experiments in which real-live humans — many whom are sick and elderly — have been/are being to exposed high levels of particulate matter, ozone, diesel exhaust, chlorine and/or other substances.
The purpose of these experiments is to provide a biological explanation that would support the bogus statistical studies relied on by the agency which purport to link the above-mentioned substances with a variety of ills and death.
As an example, consider this study in which asthmatics were exposed to ozone while exercising.
How much ozone did EPA expose its exercising asthmatic human guinea pigs to? The excerpt below shows 0.4 parts per million… or 400 parts per billion (ppb).
Is this a lot of ozone? EPA has just proposed to tighten the ozone standard from 75 ppb to between 65-70 ppb. So the asthmatic human guinea pigs were exposed to ozone at a level 6 times higher than EPA’s proposed standard.
Did any of the exercising asthmatic human guinea pigs experience any adverse health effect whatsoever from these high exposures to ozone? Here’s what EPA confided to the University of North Carolina Institutional Review Board reviewing the ethics of this human experimentation:
Will you find these facts in EPA’s new ozone proposal? No.
In summary, what do we have here?
EPA has failed to disclose that its own careful controlled clinical experiments of exercising asthmatics exposed to exceedingly high levels of ozone experienced no adverse health effects whatsoever. And now EPA wants to impose what will be the single most costly regulation of all time on the American economy.
This madness needs to be stopped.
