Here is Arden Pope’s response to Jim Enstrom’s March 2017 study in Dose Response. Past Pope’s lengthy arm-waving about dubious-if-not-fraudulent statistics, in the end he cannot cite a single bit of physical evidence that PM2.5 kills anyone — even though he claims 4.2 million people were killed by PM2.5 in 2015. Here’s the key passage:
The worst the American Cancer Society can say about Jim Enstrom’s total debunking and destruction of Arden Pope’s 1995 PM2.5 analysis (one of the two main lines relied upon by EPA in its war on coal rules) is “we have no knowledge of how nor from what source he obtained the data used in the analysis, and therefore, we cannot confirm the data are from the CPS-II cohort.”
I guess the easy way to solve that dilemma is to compare data sets — Enstrom’s with the one that the ACS, Pope and the EPA have been hiding for 22 years. But ACS never approached Enstrom to do that simple task. Instead, it submitted this lame attack on Enstrom. The bottom line is that the ACS is part and parcel of EPA’s PM2.5 fraud — only interested in the political/financial agenda, not science. Now the ACS/Pope/EPA cabal are in cover-up mode.
Jim Enstrom recently redid Arden Pope’s 1995 secret science paper claiming that PM2.5 killed. Enstrom reported no association between PM2.5 and death. Below is Stan Young’s letter on Enstrom’s re-analysis of Pope.
The same crew that published the scientific misconduct-fueled PM2.5 study in the New England Journal of Medicine last summer has now published a new scientific misconduct-fueled study based on the same Medicare data in the Journal of the American Medical Association. You can tell that JunkScience.com forced the authors to be somewhat more candid in this study than the one in the NEJM, but they can’t seem to shake their basic dishonesty.
What Murray Energy CEO Robert Murray had to say with respect to Obama’s war-on-coal in comments on the Trump EPA’s proposed repeal of the Obama’s EPA’s Clean Power Plan. Below is how Murray summarized the cost to industry. It does not begin to reckon the cost of lost jobs to miners, their families and communities.
