Peter Wilcoxen, Ajello Professor in Energy and Environmental Policy, was interviewed for the Washington Post article "EPA’s scientific advisers warn its regulatory rollbacks clash with established science." Wilcoxen is a member of the EPA’s Science Advisory Board, a panel of experts created by Congress in 1978 to review the agency’s scientific methods. "The reports are important because they scrutinize whether in fact EPA was using the best available science or not," says Wilcoxen. "You could end up establishing a regulation for huge sectors of the economy based on incorrect information."

Wilcoxen was also quoted in the Green Builder blog article "The Age of Fire."
