Scott Pruitt, Climate Change Denier with ties to Big Oil and Gas, to Head EPA
Pruitt believes global warming is a “hoax,” is an ally of the fossil fuel industry, and thinks climate change regulations should be dismantled.
From the New York Times:
“…signaling Mr. Trump’s determination to dismantle President Obama’s efforts to counter climate change.
“Mr. Pruitt, a Republican, has been a key architect of the legal battle against Mr. Obama’s climate change policies, actions that fit with the president-elect’s comments during the campaign. Mr. Trump has criticized the established science of human-caused global warming as a hoax, vowed to “cancel” the Paris accord committing nearly every nation to taking action to fight climate change, and attacked Mr. Obama’s signature global warming policy, the Clean Power Plan, as a “war on coal.”
