This is what US citizens voted for when it gave the whacked out right the majority in both the house and the senate. This new law prevents scientists that have done research on a subject from providing advice on that subject. But of course, they didn’t seek to prevent someone on the board, say from the coal industry, on providing input on coal regulation.
Wake up America! The EPA was formed in 1970 by Richard Nixon. Yes, RICHARD NIXON. Why? Because industry was literally killing Americans by polluting the water, air, and soil and there was no regulation to stop it. For example, so much pollution was dumped into the Cuyahoga River in Ohio that in literally caught on fire. Not just once, either.
So here we go. Republicans want to turn back the clock to the good old days when rivers burned, toxic smog killed people, and the soil was loaded with toxic chemicals.
