New EPA Proposal Invades Privacy
In plain speak, what Pruitt is proposing is that unless citizens are willing to make their medical records and other identifying information public, then the EPA cannot use any studies that involve those citizens. For example, if the EPA wants to study the effects of the toxic chemical plumes in Brighton in the hopes of avoiding such a disaster in the future, the people suffering as a result of the plumes not only have to deal with the adverse health effects, but they also have to be willing to share their medical records with everyone.
So do you want science or privacy? Or on Nov. 6 do you want to start electing people who will support both?
