    Smog and Premature Death – Science Has Linked Them, The White House Denies It

    By Mark Schauss | April 22, 2008

    If the White House wants to look any dumber, I honestly cannot see how after reading a report on MSNBC.com about the link between the ozone in smog and premature deaths. The National Academy of Sciences review of the data clearly shows that people are dying because of effects of short-term exposure to pollution. The White House claims that the science isn’t there which of course flies in the face of the evidence.

    So why wouldn’t the Bush Administration want this type of data to show the ill effects? Because their buddies are the major polluters causing this and get this, they don’t want anyone to calculate the benefits of saving lives because that would show that curbing pollution is economically beneficial as well. Which leads me to the thought, who is the bigger terrorist, Al Qaida or this administration when it comes to the lives and safety of American citizens? They refuse to protect the citizens of our country when the evidence is truly overwhelming.

    The EPA estimated that we would go from a cost of $20 billion to a savings of $23 billion if we tightened smog rules yet the White House tried to (and succeded) in lowering the regulations to reduce pollution recently. That represents a net benefit to our society in financial terms of $43 billion dollars! But more importantly, it would immeasurably improve the lives of people and lengthen life spans. We need to continue to pressure Congress to force the Administration to beef up the regulations on polluters.

    Most importantly, we need to elect pro-science people to the government before its too late.
