New Head of EPA, Accused of Manipulating Data, to be Confirmed Tommorrow?

[Thanks to kissingrock 🙂 – jdub]
Any Virginians out there reading? Senator John Warner needs to hear from us. And really, I don’t think it would be outrageous for anybody to call, from anywhere. It’s not like the wind don’t blow across state lines.

Tomorrow may be a bad day for the EPA our nation and our health. as if things are not bad enough already.

“From the Union of Concerned Scientists

Abuser of Science Nominated for Top EPA Job – Call Today

In his five years at the Environmental Protection Agency, William Wehrum has distorted scientific analysis on toxic mercury emissions and attempted to marginalize the role of agency scientists in protecting the air we breathe. Tomorrow, the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee will decide whether or not to confirm Wehrum as the EPA’s top air quality official. Senator John Warner is a member of this committee.

Call today, April 25, 2006, and ask your senator to oppose Wehrum’s confirmation.

Senator John Warner can be reached at (202) 224-2023.”

[ Senator Graham of South Carolina also sits on this committee. The Senate switchboard is 202-224-3121. Commit that to memory 🙂 ]
