EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy last week struck back at critics who describe health data that the agency used in establishing some pollution control regulations as “secret science.” “It’s not really about EPA science or secrets,” she said at the National Academy of Sciences’ annual meeting. “It’s about claiming that research is secret if researchers protect confidential personal health data from those who are not qualified to analyze it—and who won’t agree to protect it.” Some congressional Republicans have assailed EPA for relying on data that have not been publicly disclosed (C&EN, April 14, page 21).
