(2/19/08) What are the human health and environmental risks and benefits of nanoscale chemical products? EPA will examine that very question with its Nancoscale Materials Stewardship Program, launched last month. Tomorrow at 1 p.m. EST, James Gulliford, assistant administrator for Prevention, Pesticides and Toxic Substances will host the online interactive forum Ask EPA and discuss this new voluntary program.

This online interactive forum, patterned after Ask the White House (http://www.whitehouse.gov/ask), allows you to interact with agency officials on a wide range of environmental and human health issues. When a chat is announced, questions submitted online will be answered by EPA officials during the one-hour live session and posted to the Web site as a transcript so that others may also benefit from the discussion.
