    It's about time they did this, it should prevent any more blatantly stupid crap from flowing out of the EPA, like they did with the idiotic CO2 is a pollutant claim. It was classified for POLITICAL purpose only that is soooo dumb because it is a critical molecule for life and not harmful even at the 2500 ppm level.

    EXCLUSIVE: Scott Pruitt Will End EPA’s Use Of ‘Secret Science’ To Justify Regulations

    Michael Bastasch

    3/19/2018

    Excerpt:

    "Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt will soon end his agency’s use of “secret science” to craft regulations.

    “We need to make sure their data and methodology are published as part of the record,” Pruitt said in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Otherwise, it’s not transparent. It’s not objectively measured, and that’s important.”

    Pruitt will reverse long-standing EPA policy allowing regulators to rely on non-public scientific data in crafting rules. Such studies have been used to justify tens of billions of dollars worth of regulations.

    EPA regulators would only be allowed to consider scientific studies that make their data available for public scrutiny under Pruitt’s new policy. Also, EPA-funded studies would need to make all their data public."

    It's about time someone reigned in that malignant entity.

    Now we need to get the feds out of the education business, shut down the ATF, DEA and disarm the FBI.

    Then get the UN to move their building to Havana where it belongs.

    I remember when William Ruckelshaus banned DDT in 1972, over the objections of the science Board and even the Judge, who all stated that DDT was not a threat to the environment.

    He did it for financial, political reasons. Science at the time didn't support a ban.

    Did you know that before the big CO2 scare, about 100 years ago, the PPM for CO2 in the atmosphere was 300 parts per million. That is 300/1,000,000 or 0.000003. Supposedly science said it went to 400 parts per million or 400/1,000,000 or 0.000004. So the Earf(what inner folks say) was going to burn up in 10 years but that was forecasted back in 2006 and guess what? We are still here. So Obama, Al Gore and Bill Clinton all invested in the Carbon Credit Exchange so they can steal money from businesses and then give it to themselves so they could get much richer all in the name of science. Yet not a liberal complained when their energy prices went higher and income disparity was much bigger under Obama.. Just cant get more stupid than a liberal.

    It still doesn't.
