This was a super fun part of an hour long Full Moon Watch Party webinar I was lucky enough to be a part of! I'd like to try and make these sorts of videos more often in the future.

10/ But here’s what an expert we talked to said. The EPA has an “apparatus of particulate matter science denial” that rivals its attacks on climate science, said , environmental engineering professor at NC State University.

Important reminder that suppressing politically inconvenient science was happening long before COVID and laid the groundwork for the WHite House’s corrupt muzzling of the CDC/FDA.

Recent damage at EPA can be explained largely by one scientific fact inconveniences deregulation: Particulate pollution kills. Great piece from and on particulate matter science and how EPA is manipulating it on many fronts:

Another example where the evidence is clear but our policy lags is the fact that corded window blinds still aren't banned, even though they kill about 8 kids per year in the US. Like SUVs, we've chosen as a society to allow those deaths to happen.

New exciting opportunities for distracted driving in dangerously and unnecessarily huge vehicle! Terrifying.

I remember learning this fact decades ago. It was my introduction to the fact that scientific evidence of harm doesn't automatically spur policies that protect people. I have since acquired a long list of examples of science-policy failures.

New FOIA analysis: mail delivery complaints are 50% higher in Black, Indigenous, and people of color communities than white communities since the pandemic began--A concerning finding as we head into an election with high levels of vote-by-mail.

This is a good move. Glad to see there will now be an investigation around the onslaught of recent examples of science being sidelined at FDA and CDC.

Thursday will probably be one of the most attended federal science advisory committee meetings ever. Here's what to expect at the first meeting of the scientists who will advise on the COVID19 vaccine, from science advice expert :

I agree. have to be trusted to be experts & engage scientifically without concern for what it “means” politically. I have this issue. I don’t want to speak to behaviors of individuals-I want to speak to the & but I’m prohibited

This is why scientists at CDC (and anywhere else in the government) shouldn't need permission from political leaders to talk to the media. Some federal agencies are better, others restrict their scientists' communication and it costs the public.

Great study. Please READ. They found "Our complete data on all Elsevier journals indicate that the exceptional lock-down and social distancing measures imposed by the pandemic have penalized women academics and benefited men."

I've been trying to say yes to every media request I get about it to signal that it is important and worth my time and theirs to talk about it. Perhaps tellingly, I've gotten more requests from media outside the US than within.
