Well, as usual, this agency relies on computer models to determine risks and affects. They explicitly state that they neither measured actual PM or collected actual information on health affects on real people. This raises the question: How can a computer model be devised and calibrated without input from actual statistics based on reality? This type of "virtual" extrapolation is neither science or a valid means of determining policies that promise to cripple the economy. It's amazing that this passes as intelligence. What does this endless stream of "science fair" projects cost us all, not only to produce, but the aftermath of regulations that follow? Is there any form of peer review of these studies?
