The Environmental Protection Agency’s revised draft assessment of an Alaska mine project cites research from environmental consultants who admitted falsifying a report in an environmental lawsuit.
The EPA’s new review of the potential Pebble Mine in Bristol Bay, Alaska, relied on research from Stratus Consulting and Ann Maest, the company’s managing scientist. Stratus recently admitted to providing false statements in a decades-long $19 billion lawsuit against the oil company Chevron.
This wasn’t just a mere goof-up, mind you: Chevron has been ordered to pay $19 billion by a corrupt court that supported its ruling by citing the faked data supplied by Stratus Consulting to the plaintiffs’ lawyers.
Environmental consultants doctoring data to suit the needs of their employer? What’s next, former politicians cashing in on the global warming hoax they created while in office?
