    • FW: [SPARC] Good News: EPA Grants Extension on "Secret Science" Rule May 24, 2018
      Hi Folks, We heard this was coming (see below) so didn’t push for a rapid conclusion to our EPA letter or letter-writing process. This said, figuring out the process remains a priority. Best, Glenn Glenn Hampson Executive Director Science Communication Institute (SCI) Program
    • My first comment on EPA's proposed transparency regulation May 22, 2018
      For those who might be interested. Note that while this is a US action it is potentially a precedent for other Governments, so it deserves some international attention. In particular, at the end I begin to discuss the actual open science procedures needed for implementation. Below is that
    • Organization to possibly help increase OSI's Global South representation May 21, 2018
      We've discussed how to increase representation in the Global South, including the diversity of countries and voices that represents.

I’m rushing this out to you anonymously because it’s almost closing time back East and I want to get this into your thinking caps before the weekend.

      As of now there are just about 200 substantive comments. There are over 40,000 overall but EDF and some others often run duplicate email campaigns on EPA proposals. I once saw EDF generate 500,000 email comments. These are not separately

      I think it should be short and to the point. A letter this long probably won't be read. My 2 cents from writing letters of this kind and legislators. Of course this is the EPA.... Joyce Joyce L. Ogburn Appalachian State University 218 College Street Boone NC 28608-2026 Lifelong learning
