The Renowned EPA Transparency

by JASmius

More inconvenient (to the greenstremist agenda) facts that somebody at the Environmental Pollution Agency screwed up and published online long enough to go viral before somebody else then swiftly deleted it.  For which the first somebody has probably already been terminated, if I'm any judge:

Environmental P[ollu]tion Agency (EPA) officials were quick to take off the internet a report debunking claims made by [extrem]ists and United Nations officials that the chemical compound used to kill weeds [Roundup] is cancer-causing.

EPA pulled the report by their cancer assessment review committee, or CARC, after it had been “inadvertently” published online Friday, the agency told Reuters. EPA said the CARC report was “not final” and subsequent steps of review were needed before it could be published online. It was taken offline Monday afternoon.

i.e. The report told the truth that Roundup doesn't cause cancer and they have to skew and fudge and fabricate the results to torturedly conform it to the greenstremist Narrative.

CARC’s report, however, has already caused an uproar among environmentalists who want to see the chemical glyphosate, commonly found in weed killers and fertilizers, banned.  [Extrem]ists commonly cite a 2015 report by the United Nations’ International Agency for Research on Cancer, or IARC, classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic in humans.”
The CARC study ripped offline by EPA, however, rebutted IARC’s conclusions, saying they were based on flawed studies, some of which weren’t even reproduced by other scientists. CARC ultimately ruled glyphosate is “not likely to be carcinogenic in humans.” [emphases added]

Way back in Mrs. Martin's third grade vocabulary class, "probably" and "not likely" were antonymical.  Who knows what they mean now, especially at the EPA, but there they seem to have been alchemically transformed into synonyms instead.

Meanwhile the CARC study's findings did corroborate those of four other studies which the IARC ignored, including one from the European Food Safety Authority. All of these found a negative correlation.  Damn that settled science.

It's a pity we can't metaphorically get a big enough container of Roundup and spray the entire EPA out of existence as the lying, tyrannical, bureaucratic weed it is, huh?
