While everyone was busy and distracted the GOP led House passed a new law prohibiting scientists who are peer-reviewed experts in their field from providing advice — directly or indirectly — to the EPA, while at the same time allowing industry representatives with financial interests in fossil fuels to have their say.

The GOP has created the set-up to withhold important facts from the public with this new law. Shame on you GOP.

One response to “LIAR OF THE WEEK: House GOP

  1. If this is acceptable, peer review research will be nonexistent. Nothing is more sacred than science for science’s sake. How can a scientist be trusted to bring forth the facts undeterred by considered opinion if those same scientists are employed by the very companies they are researching? Sure, have your “in house specialist”, but scientists then give up the ability to do independent research because THEY ARE NO LONGER INDEPENDENT. You can’t have your atomic martini and drink it too.
