Corporatocracy! I hope you like it.

Yesterday, the House voted 229-191 to pass H.R. 1422, which would change the rules for appointing members to the Science Advisory Board (SAB), a group that gives scientific advice to the EPA Administrator.
This bill prohibits scientist from talking about their own research or work.  It also changes who is eligible to be on the SAB, Experts of Industry and Corporations would be eligible to serve, and in fact scientist who have used government grants to do work will be ineligible to serve.  
If this becomes law, industry will control the EPA.  Science is censored and cut out.
Welcome to a corporatocracy
