ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. House Democrats argued with Christine Todd Whitman, former administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), regarding her statements about post-9/11 air quality. Whitman repeatedly assured New Yorkers that the air was safe to breathe but her statements are found to be falsely reassuring, lacked scientific basis and were politically motivated.
