Milloy is a biostatistician and a lawyer.
EPA says that PM 2.5 kills 570,000 people per year. They say it can kill you within hours of exposure. They say there is no safe exposure.
This must be the most toxic substance known to man based on what they say.
All the new standards you are talking about are based on this. Even the mercury rules are based on cost benefits from the reduciton of PM 2.5 and not mercury.
Now if this is true...why are they exposing people to 3.5x what the EPA is lethal?
They were not told that the PM 2.5 could kill them...thus this was not voluntary. EPA violated the law in this regard. Also they are supposed to do experiments on animals first. They did not. They violated all the human testing rules.
Now here is the big trap that I think Milloy is pointing out.
If EPA states that no person was exposed to deadly levels of PM 2.5 then there is no justificaiton for the Mercury MACT, the new NAAQS standards, etc. If they say it IS deadly then they violated not only their own rules (EPA order 1000.17)but also the common rule and the rules handed down after the Nuremburg trials.
