Regressive anti-science now at the EPA
This would be unbelievable in any other country that values science, but it is obviously not the case in the US Congress. The regressive majority in the House voted to not only put industry lackeys on the Environmental Protection Agency's Scientific Advisory Board, but to prevent the actual scientific experts on the Board from giving policy advise based on science. But of course the industry lackeys can give advice, presumably on the non-scientific business aspects that are thwarted by the science. To hell with public health and the environment; that's not profitable. Fucking wow.
