The Cunningham Report - CARB Struggling With Aftermath Of Phony PHD Coverup
Check this out. Your new diesel emmissions requirements were passed based on false info
the California Air Resources Board (CAR recently passed a draconian rule governing the emissions from off-road diesel engines, like earth-moving equipment, farm equipment, train locomotives, etc. The main justification used was a paper by one of their staff PhD's claiming that 3,500 people died in California each year because of these emissions. The new rule will bankrupt many business or drive them out of the state. Further, if an engine can't be economically upgraded it's prevented from being shipped out of the state for resale. It must be destroyed for the benefit of "humankind".
This is all bad enough, but now it's been discovered that their staff scientist lied about his degree from UC Davis. It turns out that he is a Vietnamese man who got his only degree from an Internet diploma mill (he even paid and extra $1,000 for suma cum laude) run by an Israeli pedophile on the run from prosecution in the US. Oh, but that's not bad enough, the CARB director admitted that they KNEW he lied about his diploma and issued the rule anyway! She said "It's a good rule anyway". You can't make this stuff up!! Politically motivated environmentalists will stop at nothing to achieve their ends. (This info taken from a San Diego Union Tribune editor, plus a talk-only radio station, KFI-640, in Los Angeles)
