How much longer will Trump hang on to Scott Pruitt – his ideological climate-denying, fossil fuel-loving, crony promoting, whistle-blower bashing, blundering, big spending, security-paranoid buddy?
There is a growing political scandal surrounding the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, the climate denier, Scott “Polluting” Pruitt
“Pruitt’s move to repeal the Clean Power Plan shouldn’t come as any surprise. He’s repeatedly partnered with fossil fuel companies to sue the EPA for regulating the industry’s air, water, and climate pollution. This kind of cronyism is exactly what happens when government agencies are captured by the corporations they’re supposed to oversee.”
Later today the Trump Administration will propose ripping up climate legislation to save dirty coal jobs at the same time as California burns out of control from wildfires, made worse by climate change.
The Trump Administration is getting more Orwellian by the day, but as fast as it tries to bury the truth about climate change, scientists are fighting back showing that they will not be silenced by the climate deniers in the White House.
“The Trump Administration claims that it supports clean air and water, but its proposed FY 2018 Budget tells another story.”
As the White House prepares to announce its first full budget later today, as predicted the Environmental Protection Agency and other measures to protect the nation’s air, water and health, are firmly in Trump’s sights.
These are dangerous days for the climate. Not only do we have a climate denier in the White House, we have one in the Kremlin too.
“The arsonist is now in charge of the fire department, and he seems happy to let the climate crisis burn out of control”.
Later today, Scott “Polluting Pruitt” could be confirmed as the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, after a vote in the Senate. The fact that Pruitt, a man who has sued the EPA fourteen times, could be even considered for the job is a scandal. But it gets worse.
