EPA Drops 9 Advisors From Board of Scientific Counselors

May 12, 2017


Dr. Robert Richardson is an environmental economist and Associate Professor at Michigan State University. He holds a PhD in Agricultural and Resource Economics from Colorado State University. Last week, the Environmental Protection Agency declined to renew his seat on their scientific advisory board. KDNK’s Raleigh Burleigh called Dr. Richardson, who is a KDNK member, to learn more about this shift away from science toward industry perspectives at the EPA.
