Half of EPA Scientists Experience Political Interference

The Associated Press is reporting on a survey conducted by the Union of Concerned Scientists that shows half of EPA scientists have felt political pressure while working for the Agency.

Nearly 400 EPA scientists have seen Agency officials misrepresenting scientific data in public discussions. Over 250 have seen officials manipulating data to serve a specific political purpose.

There has been a lot of news recently about the EPA being pressured by its Administrator and the White House to suppress scientific information and to emphasize the political views of the Administration. I have documented those stories HERE and HERE.

This new survey shows how the politicization of the EPA is beginning to upset Agency scientists.
