‘We are becoming a global danger’: EPA tested dangerous pollutants on humans

Eerie new findings from an inspector general report finds the Environmental Protection Agency has not always been entirely truthful when testing the impact of pollutants on human subjects. According to the IG report, the EPA does not always tell the individuals about the risks associated with heavy exposure, which include cancer and even death.

According to Fox News:

The IG report looked at five studies conducted in 2010 and 2011, at a University of North Carolina facility. It determined that, overall, the agency “followed applicable regulations” when it exposed 81 test subjects to “concentrated airborne particles or diesel exhaust emissions.”

However, the IG’s office found “inconsistencies” in the consent forms — which only sometimes told test subjects about the full range of risks.

Before the subjects were brought into the labs to be exposed to pollutants, the forms compared the experience to visiting a big city on a smoggy day.

Only one of the studies, though, gave information on the “upper range of the pollutant” they would be exposed to, and only two alerted the subjects about the “risk of death for older individuals with cardiovascular disease,” according to the report.

Further, the report said consent forms for two studies testing the impact of diesel exhaust “did not include the potential cancer effects of long-term exposure.”

On radio this morning, Glenn couldn’t help but draw comparisons between the new IG report and actions of early 20th century progressives and Nazi Germany.

“These guys are the same kind of monsters that they were in the early 20th century” Glenn said. “And everybody is like, ‘That’s outrageous.’ Really? The E.P.A. just did another experiment on people and didn’t tell them the truth.”

Glenn likened the EPA studies, which involved exposing participants for diesel exhaust emissions and other particulate matter, to the behavior of Nazi physician Josef Mengele and infamous Action T4 euthanasia program employed in Nazi Germany.

“I don’t think the EPA really needs to do this. The Nazis already did. We know exactly what happens when you have too much diesel fume,” Glenn said. “And you know, you get in trouble for saying they’re like the Nazis… Doing experiments on people. Boy, that kind of sounds a little Nazi-esque to me.”

This story has largely gone unreported, but consider what the media coverage would be if a private corporation was conducting experiments on people and not disclosing the extent of the dangers.

“Can you imagine what the EPA would do, what this government would do, to any corporation… that would line people up and say, ‘You know what? We’re going to do some experiments, and you might have some coughing but it should clear up right away.’ Can you imagine where that story would be,” Glenn concluded. “That would be all over the entire world. I hope the entire world sees the monster that we are turning into… You need to see how far America has gone off track. Please, run from us. We are becoming a global danger.”

    Glenn, you obviously don’t understand sciences like man made global warming. Humans are expendable to the socialist left. Lefties see people as lab rats. Even demo rats.

    Why blame nazis for pollution. Yes, they were guilty experimenting on people But look at the real polluting nations and how their people suffer. Look at China and the smog problems they have in their major cities. Look at Los Angeles when their smog stagnates over the city! The pollution problems are a result of progress in technology, including additives in our food chain, chemicals added that don’t belong in the human body. Look at all the synthtic drugs that people take, they destroy the body’s natural life! However, are we ready to go back in time to live the cleaner lives of yesteryear? Are we ready to stop all air travel? Man is slowly self-destructing with his “progress”.

    • Its me, Bruce

      The point isn’t that there are pollutants. It is that the EPA is using people as lab rats, without full disclosure of the risks.

    • Bill Tilghman

      Now Ed,
      No one is blaming the nazis for pollution, but experimenting on human beings with known toxic agents and lying to them about the nature of what they are being exposed to is as if the final solution has come to America. The EPA knew the possible consequences of exposing people to diesel engine exhaust within a confined space well before this experiment began. This isn’t science, it is monstrous.

      I am a third generation Los Angeleno and we don’t have much actual smog any more. Sure, sometimes when we get an inversion layer we have some haze from being near the ocean and the sky isn’t as blue as it should be, but not much smog — unless there is a large brush fire burning on the outskirts of the city.

      It used to be far smoggier and the Hollywood tourist gift shops at one time sold canned Hollywood smog as a novelty item. The original Indians who lived in the San Fernando Valley area before the Spanish arrived called it the Smokey Valley due to the inversion layer in the area keeping it hazey when the Santana and onshore winds weren’t blowing. But, we have had strict anti-pollution laws in California, in general, and Los Angeles, in particular for a very long time.

      So, if you want to see some eye-tearing smog these days, you need to look to some places in Texas for that honor.

    Nothing about the Obama administration surprises me anymore. They sat by while 4 Americans, representatives of their government, were murdered in Benghazi. They provided the guns to the Mexican drug cartels so that they could murder tens of thousands of Mexicans, as well a number of Americans including a border patrol agent. They provide dozens of programs to poor Americans that guarantee they remain in poverty, so as to control their votes.
    The policies of this administration are designed to ensure poverty, destroy the middle class, make the rich richer and enslave as many people as they can with programs like Obamacare. The EPA using humans as lab rats is a perfect example of what this imperial president thinks is OK. It is time to impeach Obama and put all of hs czars and department secretaries (e.g. Holder, Sibelius, Hillary, Napolitano, Kerry et.al) in prison. Period.

    “Government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem.” The late great Ronald Reagan. I would add that this is at mostly all levels of government. Corrupt to the core and in our case in the US our federal government fails completely at one of the main mandates given it under the Constitution – to defend our country from enemies both foreign and domestic. We all know how well they do that job. Utter and complete dereliction of duty at all levels. Time to bring us back to the Constitutional Republic given to us by our wise Founders – as the late great Benjamin Franklin said “if you can keep it…” So far we would hugely disappoint the Founders for we the people being namby pamby, lazy and slothful about making our government accountable to us. The EPA is just a part of the corruption; most agencies are equally corrupt.

    I continue to say – this is how tyrants take over countries & how terrible atrocities, such as these “experiments” and genocide are committed – in the name of science, socialism, communism, whatever. Our Constitution is supposed to help prevent that. But in every society, throughout history, there are “progressives” whose need to control exceeds their supposed proclaimed efforts as “do-gooders”. Today’s progressives remind me of that nosy, controlling, religious busy-body in the neighborhood who put on her hat & gloves marched herself & whoever she could drag to church (not a bad thing in itself) or to the ladies aid meetings – and who was always professing what is right & wrong and how everybody should act, and think and do. Now those persons are rampant in our government and ruining it with their pious, narrow-minded, self-centered, self-serving, and self-aggrandizing Environment or Education, etc. agendas! Same as SNL’s Church Lady – who we all used to laugh hysterically at! And now is running our lives – Ugh!

    this is another Illegal step in the war on truckers. Over taxed, over regulated, and now it appears they are going to try to say how dangerous the emissions of trucks are. 98 percent of everything in your homes rode on the back of a truck. Look at your grocery stores.. All that food has been on the back of a truck. If they succeed in taking big rigs off the road the country will fall.

      Looks like they are working up to it. They are trying to force manufacturers to build tractor engines that get better mileage. It took years to get from 5 mpg to 6 mpg – and that depends on the rest of the specs and the load being hauled. These bureaucrats haven’t got a clue, but they keep on creating crazy regulations that don’t do anything to add to safety on the road – they just put a greater burden on the truckers whose costs are increasing but income isn’t.

    We have to many people on this planet as it is. Nobody believes in killing anybody but letting people kill themselves by their own choices in food, lifestyle, living conditions is something completely up to them. I’m not against this and actually support it. Nobody needs to live past 65 unless they actually try. We have people today living into the hundreds and that’s just crazy and can’t be sustained. It’s not about killing people but allowing people to make the choice in living a shorter life. So please have another beer, smoke, pill, mutant food, toxic air, or even the toxic dust at your work place. Either way something must be done or we all will suffer.

    Sorry but first it’s me, then my family, my property, and everything thing else is on another list some place else. :) Enjoy!

    Thank you for exposing the EPA for what it is. A Farce. The current administration does not care about the environment any more than a redneck in his 4×4 smokestack diesel truck. What they care about is control. Please explore the even more sinister topic of weather modification. Governments around the globe have conducted experiments on their own people for decades now. There is strong evidence that our own government is currently conducting weather modification programs through the us of the HAARP facility in Alaska as well as Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering and Solar Radiation Management “experiments” More can be found by visiting http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org.

    This is no different than the EPA encouraging water companies to use chloramine instead of regular chlorine. Chloramine is chlorine (bleach) plus ammonia. The EPA’s own IRIS document proves the extent of their study of chloramine – no full studies on health effects and minimal cancer studies. This means that since one-third of water companies are using chloramine in the U.S., the people drinking the water are experiments. Most people don’t even know what chloramine is. According to the LA Times, wherever chloramine is used people complain of skin (itching so hard you bleed) and respiratory (asthma) symptoms. Chloramine also causes digestive (passing blood) symptoms. Almost everyone knows you shouldn’t combine bleach and ammonia because of the gas that’s made. Somehow this stuff is magically safe because the EPA says it is. Don’t think you’re exempt from chloramine if your water company doesn’t use it. It’s in everyone’s grocery stores because of the products made in chloraminated towns.

    I wonder what the EPA will do when that Earth-snuffing asteroid is discovered?

    Will they debate the effects of collision and climate change? Hold hearings that last for years? Will they decide that the Earth (and asteroid) is better served by allowing the asteroid to collide with us?

    While China is burning its way to a Communist Utopia we’re bankrupting our country (courtesy of borrowed Chinese money) trying to make things “green”.

    China doesn’t care. Let the Americans play around while China pumps whatever into the atmosphere, maybe the Americans might actually clean some of it up. Maybe that’s why China sends pregnant ladies to America to obtain American citizenship for the child, maybe that’s why the children return to America for education, maybe that’s why their parents are buying up American land at firesale prices. If these Chinese-Americans get married in China and have a child in China is THAT child an American citizen? Maybe when China turns into a vast toxic wasteland the Chinese-American CITIZENS will just move over to a nice, spiffy America. All cleaned up and ready for assimilation.

    That won’t happen. Not in my lifetime. It’s crazy. Looney tunes. The good people of the world wouldn’t do that to us after all we’ve done for them. It’s not fair.

    Good and Evil exists. The moral relativists will try to convince others that it’s only a matter of perspective, an opinion, a point-of-view. When pressed, the moral relativists will then resort to “judgmental”-type arguments. When pressed further they will become name-calling, shrieking, label-ers who make the very judgments that they will accuse us of making.

    Some people do not agree with the concept of private property, that everything is communal. When they come they will take your property, materials, food, whatever, but that’s not enough they also want something that cannot belong to them and will do everything, including biding their time, to get you to give it to them.

Our skin is alive, our bodies are alive. We are and always have been a walking germ factory. Do these folks ever get it? So if the idea is to find some new ridiculous reason to not only kill unwanted, unborn fetuses, but to kill unwanted people already born throughout the world, then these nut cases are doing a great job of eradicating human life. Hopefully while they are trying so hard to do so, they will not be spared either.
