I must express my keen disappointment after reading former Candidate Ed Birnbaum’s op-ed, “Op-ed comments not scientifically valid” (Los Alamos Monitor, June 11).
As a scientist and educator, Mr. Birnbaum should have reveled at the teaching opportunity provided by Ms. Noon’s article, “EPA hides their use of ‘bad science.’”
He chose to respond to the article in an ad-hominem fashion, disparaging the “scientific credentials” and “agendas” of those about whom she wrote and with whom he apparently disagrees, rather than to address the merits of her claim — a time-honored Washington political maneuver.
The ironic thing is her claim is largely true. Inadequate peer review of administration “science” is responsible for the array of pervasive and intrusive environmental regulations currently impairing local ranchers’ economic livelihoods.
