House Signs Bill Releasing EPA 'Research' to Public: Days of 'Trust Me' Science are Over
A major blow to anti-global warming advocates occurred on Wednesday when House Republicans passed a bill requiring the Environmental Protection Agency to release data used to support new regulations to protect human health and the environment.
The bill was approved and moved to the Senate in a 228-194 vote.
"The days of 'trust me' science are over," Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas said.
In recent days, Democrats have moved their attention on President Donald Trump from Russia conspiracies to the overall destruction of the planet.
“Make no mistake, the Trump administration’s rampage against the environment presents an existential threat to the entire planet,” John Podesta, former campaign chairman for the failed Clinton campaign, wrote in the Washington Post on Wednesday.
