Why do people trust these guys when it comes to science?
>>
>>7805581
What are they wrong about?
>>
>>7805585
not him, but the way they go about classifying chemicals as hazardous is really, really, really bad.
>>
>>7805585
LOL
>>
>>7805585
Classifying everything as a possible cancer causer just like the WHO.

They suck at what they try to preach regarding environmental standards.

They started the meme that secondhand smoke was bad for people.
>>
>>7805581
Yea, I mean have you watched The Simpsons Movie?
They're pure evil
>>
>>7805585
Well they poisoned the Colorado River, for one.

The government absolutely sucks at everything it is entrusted to do. I know because I work for the government.
>>
Because they do good work.

>>7805621
You're thinking the Europeans. The EPA is outstandingly permissive when you compare their exposure limits to international permits.

>>7805598
They do standard toxicology. It's all founded on well-characterized science.
>>
>>7805883
States have EPA-like entities that can be very severe. California, for example. They are okay with Ivanpah frying a thousand birds a day and wiping out the desert tortoise but will sue you into ruin for storing some used motoroil in your backyard.
>>
>>7805890
Then you should talk about those entities specifically.

Besides,
>taking California seriously as an example of anything
>>
>>7805883
Pretty sure the American EPA also does those things.
>>

>They do standard toxicology. It's all founded on well-characterized science.
No they don't. They rely on companies to self report dangerous chemicals...this is a long read, but it'll make you seriously question how "good" their work is.

>people trust these guys
... because they distrust the other guys: Monsanto, DuPont, Dow, Exxon/Mobil, Shell, BP, etcetera.
>>
>>7806388
That's not a particularly good reason to trust a corrupt group.
>>
>>7806474
>corrupt
not an absolute, pleb
