Policy Center with Foyer
Featuring Steven J. Milloy, Founder, JunkScience​.com; moderated by Patrick J. Michaels, Director, Center for the Study of Science, Cato Institute.

The EPA’s most costly air‐​pollution and global‐​warming regulations are justified by the belief that small particles in outdoor air, like soot and dust, kill people. Based upon internal EPA documents and original research, Steven Milloy, publisher of the widely read blog JunkScience​.com, will demonstrate that the agency’s belief does not pass scientific muster. As has been the case with climate change research, the dangerous liaison between regulatory agencies and academia has again resulted in a substantial distortion of reality. Please join us for a probing critique of science in service to regulatory overreach.
