Obama's Junk Science Being Tossed - Finally!

Cool!

Scientific studies used by the Obama administration to help justify tough environmental regulations are coming under intensifying scrutiny, with critics questioning their merit as the Trump EPA reverses or delays some of those rules.

In one case, agencies determined the research used to prop up a ban on a pesticide was questionable. On another front, the Environmental Protection Agency never complied with a congressional subpoena for the data used to justify most Obama administration air quality rules.

“EPA regulations are based on secret data developed in the 1990s,” Steve Milloy, who served on President Trump’s EPA transition team, told Fox News. “For the EPA, coming up with cherry-picked data is standard operating procedure.”

Might I recommend you try to avoid discussing ANYTHING that involves science or even mentions it, in order to avoid embarrassment?
Thanks from numan

To be honest....If YOU consider it junk then I would likely consider it valid.

PRESS RELEASE:Fox news
DATED 28th December

President Trump has stated that the world is indeed flat! Despite recent world wide advances in science and technology including satallite observations, great uncle Bummblephuck the President's Chief Science Advisor has poured scorn over such claims and has said that such radical ideas are coming under intensifying scrutiny. With an ever increaseing number of brain dead Americans joining the queues of critics questioning "round" world conspiracy the merits of the flat world theory are just too obvious. Chuck Steak our reporter from Alabama joined a group of Trump supporters who are convinced that the "round" world is just too stupid "yeah like look man.... look out there man... like its so flat...DUH does it look round!!" With such compelling arguments like that Fox News just has too agree and back Presidents Trump's commitment to have all American Atlas' and Geography books changed.

The American Geographical Society have stated that they will be sending USD1Million to the "re-eletion" fund in order to get this policy change reversed which according to an anonymous souce at the AGS "seems to be the going rate according to the guys at Dow Chemicals"
Thanks from tecoyah and numan
