Is Gulf Seafood Really Safe to Eat? Scientists Say Government Is Withholding Key Data

An outside scientist group, eager to perform independent evaluations of the government’s findings on the Gulf oil spill, are complaining that the information released doesn’t contain enough information to make a proper evaluation. As reported by AlterNet.com:

“Multiple independent scientists involved in studying the effects of the Gulf oil spill not only revealed that government claims of sufficient transparency are wholly misleading, but they also provided several key examples of how withholding this information precludes independent evaluation and opens a raft of critical unanswered questions,” AlterNet said.

One scientist told AlterNet that "What they've done in a lot of instances is [provide] kind of first or second order binning or summarizing or distilling, which makes a lot of the data unusable or unavailable,"
