The ongoing hysteria about lead in Washington, D.C.’s drinking water demonstrates the potential unintended consequences of implementing junk science-based environmental policy, according to Fox News columnist Steve Milloy.

Milloy notes in his latest column that the uproar in the nation’s capital, which has set off a “three-ringed media-lawyer-government circus”, has in fact not been able to produce any evidence of ill health effects resulting from lead found in the D.C. water system. This is not surprising he adds, as lead levels there have been dropping steadily and the current standard is more the product of “activists whose ultimate goal is to have any measurable blood lead level declared as unsafe” than of any sound science.
