What’s the EPA Hiding in its Bristol Bay Watershed Assessment?

There they go again. Late Friday afternoon, the EPA released its flawed Bristol Bay Watershed Assessment, designed to kill the most important potential mining project in the United States today: the Pebble Mine in Southwest Alaska. This just after acting EPA Administrator Bob Perciasepe told a Senate subcommittee this Wednesday that it may be weeks before the assessment was released.

Why the lies? Why the sneaky afternoon drop?

Could it have to do with EPA relying on disgraced “scientist” Ann Maest as one the report’s major sources? Yes, the same Ann Maest that in a stunning reversal actually told the truth about her role in cooking the books in a tainted lawsuit against Chevron in Ecuador.

EPA, when you act like you have something to hide, you probably do.
