    President Obama's pick to serve as the assistant secretary of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is an "aggressively anti-business" proponent of junk science who should not be confirmed by the Senate, his critics say.

    Dr. David Michaels, a research professor and interim chairman in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health at George Washington University's School of Public Health and Health Services, was nominated on July 28 to become OSHA's next assistant secretary. If confirmed, he would serve under Labor Secretary Hilda Solis.

    Obama cited Michaels' "tremendous dedication" and expertise while making the announcement. According to his biography from George Washington University, Michaels received the American Association for the Advancement of Science's Scientific Freedom and Responsibility Award for his work on behalf of nuclear weapons workers and calls for scientific integrity.

    Michaels was also the chief architect of an initiative to compensate Department of Energy nuclear weapons workers who developed cancer or lung disease as a result of their exposure to radiation, beryllium and other life-threatening hazards. Since 2000, the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program has doled out more than $4.5 billion in benefits to those workers and their relatives.

    Here's His "Bio"

    Interesting...Another "Clintonista".

    And he appears to be another desciple of "Junk Science". I'm sure he'd be for "Cap And Tax" if asked.

    Then you must've been a FAN of the Jane Fonda Classic "The CHINA Syndrome"...which was nothing more than propaganda against Nuclear Power Plants...
