Thanks for this article Dr. Ball. The EPA’s Endangerment Finding (EF) on CO2 is the laughing stock of any scientist, regardless of discipline. By definition, science cannot be done if the data and methods are secret. The Endangerment Finding must be reversed or all science suffers. A bureaucrat, or Congress or the courts cannot control the standards of science, or else we all suffer the consequences.
It is not enough that Obama’s EPA Administrator was charged with contempt of Congress. The EF must be rescinded and publically repudiated.
“A peer reviewed Climate Science Research Report has proven that it is all but certain that EPA’s basic claim that CO2 is a pollutant is totally false.” PRESS RELEASE: On the Validity of NOAA, NASA and Hadley CRU Global Average Surface Temperature Data & The Validity of EPA’s CO2 Endangerment Finding.
