Silencing Science: New EPA Rule Suppresses Pollution Research

Climate 2020

Government & Organization

The Environmental Protection Agency hopes to finalize its new ‘Secret Science’ rule that would make it harder for lifesaving climate science to inform policy. If approved, it could be detrimental to studies that contain confidential data — including seminal public health findings related to air pollution. This is an especially critical area of research for black Americans who are dying in disproportionate numbers from Coronavirus, partially because of their exposure to harmful particles in the neighborhoods where they live. Michael Halpern and Professor Francesca Dominici tell us about the barrage of attacks on science that gained momentum under the Trump Administration but started decades before.
