What kind of farked up tard do you have to be to think that air pollution doesn't hurt people?

FTFA:  Steve Milloy, formerly a paid flack for the tobacco and fossil fuel industries and member of Trump's Environmental Protection Agency transition team, argued that excessive air pollution is not linked to premature death. "My particular interest is air pollution," Milloy said, alleging that EPA's scientists are inherently biased. "These people validate and rubber-stamp the EPA's conclusion that air pollution kills people." Milloy also said, baselessly, that EPA scientists are "paying for the science it wants," and that Trump must change the research process at the agency.

If this motherfarker thinks the science is biased, then he should experiment himself to see if he can either verify or invalidate the results.  I'd suggest directly huffing exhaust fumes from a diesel engine for a few weeks to determine the effects.

As if I needed another reason to find each and every single person involved in this administration to be a disgusting monster who is either criminally stupid or so full of greed and malice that they should get their own episode of SuperNatural where they're destroyed....

Hey, Trump voters, you need to start going door-to-door and apologizing to everyone now, so you can make a dent in the list by the time Trump is out of office.

You know if we brought back smog, life expectancy would be reduced again and 70-year old guys would be much rarer and certainly incapable of running for president.

I wager a number of them know, and don't care. For the same reason that they can cut Meals on Wheels and free school lunches because it's not showing results.

Rich people will just go somewhere not polluted. Or buy clean air.

"But people who are already unhealthy-who have asthma, or cardiovascular or heart disease-should be worried. "We often refer to it as triggering," Pope said. "Particulates will trigger these acute events, such as heart attack."

So is air pollution a micro aggression?

Came here to suggest something similar. If he doesn't believe pollution is dangerous, perhaps sucking on a tailpipe would be a stunt he could use to prove his theory.

Just build giant fans that blow the air pollution into outer space. Boom. Done. Now I can roll coal all over you Prius-driving libtards and you won't get your panties in a bunch over a little smog.

Said it before and I'll say it again:

Trump hired a bunch of Captain Planet villains to run the EPA.

//Cut 31% of our budget, but still only have a -0.3% net trim to the overall budget?

So who will be first up to the plate to defend this kind of bull shiat?

Which one of our regulars do you think it will be?

Many kilos of fermented dairy hasnt been around in while,
Dispelled Culpability seems like the type,
but the hot chuckle wagon could do it easy,
I wonder if 13 year old pank call will show up.

Nobody.

One day, the EPA will just fade away, the IBM typewriters will be auctioned, buildings auctioned to the Trump Family Hotels of AmeriKa.

They need to do their own scientific research...
I suggest they sit in a closed one car garage and run the car engine for a few hours.
When they come out, they can tell us the results of the research.

If it was just the asylum, you could avoid it.

Just to be clear California eliminated smog by passing a series of laws that made it illegal to own and operate sh*tty cars. Yes it was government intervention and it worked

I'd prefer they just be banned from ever voting again, and the things they support (cuts to everything that benefits them) only happen to them and the rest of the country keeps operating as usual.

Make America great again by drastically reducing the amount of republicans.

Make sure to use the whole 10 gallon tank of gas. Hopefully, it's unleaded gas, since we need to control the experiment with real-life particulates.

Not really. Humanity has survived worse than this. Things will be rather unpleasant for a while for us and for our children, but the arc of history will continue its infuriatingly slow progress.
