If there ever was a case of hypocrisy, this is one of them.  The EPA has a science panel for issues on asbestos, and they have come up with a new member to join the panel.  A scientist, you ask?  Oh hells no.  Instead, they want to appoint Dennis C. Paustenbach, a lawyer who is skilled in defending companies against asbestos litigation.  What a crock!  So much for the wronged consumer or worker.  Somehow protecting companies is NOT in the EPA’s vision statement.  Their statement from the website is “to protect human health and the environment”.  I guess they mean BUSINESS environment!
