The US Environmental Protection Agency and its administrator are on the defendant’s end of a federal lawsuit claiming the agency conducted illegal and harmful human experimentation on unsuspecting study volunteers.
The American Tradition Institute Environmental Law Center (ATI) issued a complaint against the agency last Friday, stating it “failed to comply with laws controlling human experimentation” in studies that were apparently testing the effect of “fine particles” on human subjects who were “more susceptible to the effects of air pollutants,” in other words, participants who were already ill.
The EPA, and administrator Lisa Jackson in her official capacity, are targeted in the lawsuit for knowingly “conducting experiments on humans that involved exposing those persons to toxic substances the Agency believes will cause death and which the Agency therefore regulates under the auspices of the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S. C. Chapter 85.”
A statement regarding ATI’s complaint reveals toxic particulate matter, known as PM2.5, was pumped into a gas chamber-like enclosure serving as a testing facility via an intake pipe. Diesel exhaust from a parked, idled truck was channeled into the facility where the experiments took place.
The ATI’s lead counsel and director, David W. Schnare, contends that “under EPA regulations and under EPA policy, this human experimentation is strictly prohibited.” He also argues the experiment’s participants were not properly informed of the type of pollution they would be inhaling, and that the study researchers blatantly disregarded the known toxicity of PM2.5.
Dr. Schnare has direct insider knowledge of the workings of the EPA, having been employed by the Agency for 33 years as a scientist, policy analyst and enforcement attorney.
“EPA actually has pictures of this gas chamber, a clear plastic pipe stuck into the mouth of a subject, his lips sealing it to his face, diesel fumes inhaled straight into the lungs,” Schnare states.
Schnare feels it his obligation to expose the EPA’s experiments as members of his own family were unwilling participants of experimentation conducted at the Buchenwald concentration camp in 1945. Recalling the horrors of the Nazi experiments, he says it is his duty to challenge the EPA’s “misanthropic activities.”
Despite the EPA’s administrator testifying to congress that “Particulate matter causes premature death,” and herself even telling congress in September 2011 that “1 in 4 US deaths are attributable to PM2.5,” the senseless study was allowed to proceed.
The suit seeks to: immediately put a halt to the experiments and any similar ones, to cease expenditures for the study, to suspend the use of the UNC Medical IRB unit, to prohibit results from the study to be used by the EPA, for the EPA to declare that it did not provide sufficient information to victims, and to suspend the addition of new rules under the Clean Air Act to control fine particulate matter until it is known that none of the results of the study were used.
Infowars has exhaustively documented the US government’s covert public experimentation for quite some time.
Last year, we covered a 1977 Senate hearing on Health and Scientific Research confirming “that 239 populated areas had been contaminated with biological agents between 1949 and 1969, including San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Key West, Panama City, Minneapolis, and St. Louis.”
“From the 1950′s onwards, the U.S. government deliberately engaged in open air tests, spraying major cities like San Francisco and New York with Serratia marcescens and Bacillus glogigii. In 1955, the CIA also released a bacteria withdrawn from the Army’s biological warfare arsenal over Tampa Bay, Fl in order to test its ability to infect human populations with biological agents,” Paul Watson wrote.
In 2010, the US government was forced to issue an apology after it was revealed that, in the 40s, 700 people in Guatemala were intentionally infected with sexually transmitted diseases.
In May, the DHS used the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s Boston subway system to release a “dead” bacteria called B-subtilis under the pretense of testing its biological sensors.
As recent as yesterday, we covered a report put out by KSDK centered on Cold War experimentation conducted on the population of St. Louis and various other cities during the 50s and 60s testing the effects of zinc cadmium sulfide, a known toxic substance, on unsuspecting citizens.
