Statement of Former EPA Deputy Administrator on Resignation of EPA Administrator Whitman
Future EPA administrator will be forced to deal with junk science holdovers

ARLINGTON, VA – S. Fred Singer, former deputy assistant administrator of the EPA and research fellow on the environment for the Independent Institute, issued the following statement today on the resignation of EPA Administrator Christine Todd Whitman:

“Christine Todd Whitman had an almost impossible job, trying to stand up to an entrenched bureaucracy. Holdovers from the past administration and acolytes of former Vice President Al Gore were dedicated to forcing the Bush White House to accept their flawed version of the prospects of human-caused climate change. By slipping junk science into EPA reports, they not only undercut Whitman, but they tried to embarrass the President with scientifically discredited views and environmentally harmful public policies.

“Whoever Bush appoints to succeed Christine Todd Whitman will have the same problems to deal with: a government agency with bureaucrats hostile toward common-sense, scientifically sound environmental policy, and yards of red tape – or more accurately green tape*, as the case may be.”
