Trump’s Anti-Science Animosity Continues Under the Malevolent EPA Head Pruitt
Scott Pruitt, the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Administrator, has systematically removed science from environmental decisions and regulations in the United States. Now, he’s working on yet another rule that would eliminate decades of scientific studies from being considered when writing regulatory standards.
Trump’s con man attack on the 20th Century continues unabated, with EPA head Pruitt ignoring decades of scientific research- all in order to rescind as many regulations possible and sacrifice the health and safety of all Americans.
Notice the fraudulent premise surrounding this attack on science. Pruitt is using the ethical standards proper scientific research must adhere to as a weapon against the science itself. Anonymous subjects in case studies are standard material in medical research but Republicans see this fact not as a good and proper level of ethics, but as a means to weaponize ethics and standards against those that must adhere to them. As this Forbes articles states these environmental studies are available to those who are qualified and must adhere to the ethics involved. The lie that Republicans and this woeful Trump administration propagate concerning hiding evidence is shameful in its audacity and disdain of ethics in general.
