My op-ed in today’s Wall Street Journal.
You probably know where I come down on this. A new study spotlights this issue in spades.
EPA has claimed that reducing PM2.5 concentrations can save 570,000 lives in the U.S. every year (i.e., prevent one-quarter of all deaths annually).
Don’t know whether History Channel’s Amelia Earhart hypothesis is correct, but it certainly shows that changes in sea-level at the Marshall Islands are not due to CO2 emissions.
According to last night’s History Channel program, Earhart’s plane crash landed at the Northern shore of Mili Island. The Japanese then hauled the plane down the then shoreline (i.e., between the blue lines) to a waiting barge. Today the area between the blues lines is obviously jungle. But in 1937, it was shoreline. Mili has clearly grown (not shrunk, as per global warming sea-level rise hysteria) since 1937.
The New England Journal of Medicine recently stepped in it with the publication of bogus study on PM2.5 and death. I have called for the NEJM to retract the study. Jim Enstrom has a different suggestion.
Then you’re invited to Capitol Hill for an actual free lunch (and free learning) as Steve Milloy presents his new book, ‘Scare Pollution: Why and How to Fix the EPA’!
“Thus, it is impossible to conclude from the three published GAST data sets that recent years have been the warmest ever – despite current claims of record setting warming.”
We will see how much of the U.S. scientific establishment is willing to have its reputation dragged into the gutter inhabited by the air pollution fraudsters.
More EPA-funded air quality science fraud?
