EPA Accused of Self-Censorship
'Things have gotten pretty extreme when the Environmental Protection Agency is no longer permitted to voice environmental concerns,' stated PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch. This latest act of self-censorship adds to a recent pattern in which EPAs pollution-related concerns have been squelched from inter-agency communications. Similar objections by EPA specialists to Bush Administration plans to allow snowmobiles in Yellowstone National Park, to greatly expand coal bed methane production on federal range lands and to exempt Pentagon agencies from toxic waste regulations have all been excised from official correspondence."
