Now for something completely different: A comment that is actually germane to this article.
EPA subscribes to LNT--Linear No Threshold. This ridiculous policy says that if 10% of something will kill 1000 people, then 0.1% will kill 10 people. This assumption that the effect of something is purely linear is not scientifically sound in the majority of situations. However, the EPA, the Union of Concerned Scientists and the UN endorse it because it aids their radical agenda.
Its worst effect is in nuclear energy policy, where it has basically halted development and scared whole populations constipated.
