Scott Pruitt’s Attack on Science Would Paralyze the E.P.A.

Thought Piece The McCarthy/McCabe Op-Ed piece seems just too political, too silo-thinking, too simplistic, too parochial, and too eco-religious for an adult audience. Where is the discussion about national and international economic development, the effects of the Shale Revolution, the importance of energy efficiency, the state of emission reduction strategies, the growing benefits of the Internet [...]

Time to get off the gravy train

Thought Piece Greg Walcher discusses the longstanding practice of suing and settling with the EPA. One could say it was a downright anti-transparency way of extracting large amounts of federal dollars without full disclosure. It would be interesting if a FOIA could be filed on all such “sue and settle” activities over the last decade. I [...]

Don’t despair, get to work, says former EPA chief Gina McCarthy

Thought Piece “Climate change is happening,” Gina McCarthy said, “We have to stop debating the science.” While Gina sees black and white, I see red. The McCarthy lecture seems just too silo-thinking, too simplistic, too parochial, and too eco-religious for an adult audience. Where is the discussion about national and international economic development, the importance of [...]

Scott Pruitt Plans to Dismiss EPA’s Expert Scientific Advisors

Liberal Commentator: Death Threats Against EPA Director Make Sense

Thought Piece For the record, the Clean Power Plan is a great example of undemocratic regulation, environmental extremism, faulty constitutional thinking, media manipulation, extensive use of executive orders, moral rectitude, name-calling, populist rhetoric, ideological purity, demonization of the opposition, total inability to  negotiate with the loyal opposition, and poor understanding of basic global economic development. Steve [...]

EPA Chief Set to Bar Government-Funded Experts From Agency’s Science Panels

Thought Piece It surely is time to end the inherent conflict of interest between appointed experts and government grants. One would hope that the funding-bias, so visible in many recent environmental studies, will stop. Full disclosure of participants and material facts should be a part of the vetting of all scientists being considered for government science [...]

Pollution kills 9 million people each year, new study finds

Thought Piece I am not shocked about the information provided by the recent pollution study, but I am bothered that Ex-EPA’s Gina McCarthy reveals her prejudices and anti-intellectualism in her interpretation of the study. Steve P.S. “Often creativity is ruined by throwing more and more money at premature ideas." Rob Asghur Pollution kills 9 million people [...]

WINNING: EPA to reform its science advisory boards

Thought Piece A humble scientist is a wise scientist. Anyone making predictions should heed the words of the great philosopher Casey Stengel: "Don't make prediction especially about the future." This might be a great time to have a thorough discussion on climate change, without rancor or name-calling. Let's admit that there are many, many people in [...]

A CNN Smear

Thought Piece CNN and PBS pretend to do environmental exposes, recently. The quality of their reporting and one-sidedness of environmental dogma has become intellectually embarrassing, with almost no real science. A CNN Smear John Stossel|Posted: Oct 18, 2017 12:01 AM Did you happen to catch CNN's latest smear? Anderson Cooper's show recently featured a "two-part exclusive" [...]

Trump’s EPA Under Attack By Taxpayer Funded PBS

Thought Piece This is the most slanted expose ever done by PBS. Balanced reporting is no where to be found. It must have been written by Gina McCarthy and directed the NY Times environmental extremists.
