Dr. John Reed Comments on the Balmes/Sperling Letter to the Editor

The U-T is to be commended for its exposure of the deception of Air Resources board members by staff and and the Board Chair, Mary Nichols. I find it very telling that Dr. Balmes has responded in an attempt to whitewash this incident, when he in fact was the only Board member who knew of the fraud prior to the vote, but never told other members, made no attempt to rectify the situation, and remained silent on the subject for nearly a year. It is also very telling that Dr. Balmes and Sperling state,

"Based on the record we have reviewed, there is no evidence to question the regulation, the supporting studies or board ARB management".
The record presented to them by staff has been sanitized of any dissenting views, including EPA studies, so of course their is no evidence questioning the regulation. These Board members are either part of the conspiracy to railroad these regulations through no matter what the very real human cost, or they are simply oblivious to the reality of the situation.
These proposed rules are being adopted based on a flawed study that supposes a public health benefit from this intervention, yet the possible negative public health effects of these rules have never been looked at , despite the overwhelming evidence that unemployment has a substantial negative impact on public health.
I guess the ARB just figures with millions without jobs already, whats a few more hundred thousand?
