Trump Picks Scott Pruitt, Climate Change Dissenter, to Lead E.P.A.

The Coke Brothers and his band of thieves have infiltrated our government via low life Trump.  Billionaires, Generals and Breitbart ideologists will dismantle all common sense policies that protect and serve the middle class, at least what is left of our water and air.

The appointment of Pruit shows us that low life Trump has no clue what the fuck he is doing; nor does he care.  Clean air and water act is all but trashed.  The oil tycoons now running our country don’t give a rats ass about our environment!!!

Hope you are happy Trump voters.  You have sealed the fate of our children….Sandaura

WASHINGTON — President-elect Donald J. Trump has selected Scott Pruitt, the Oklahoma attorney general and a close ally of the fossil fuel industry, to run the Environmental Protection Agency, signaling Mr. Trump’s determination to dismantle President Obama’s efforts to counter climate change — and much of the E.P.A. itself.

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.”

Mr. Pruitt has been in lock step with those views.

“Scientists continue to disagree about the degree and extent of global warming and its connection to the actions of mankind,” he wrote in National Review earlier this year. “That debate should be encouraged — in classrooms, public forums, and the halls of Congress. It should not be silenced with threats of prosecution. Dissent is not a crime.”

A meeting on Monday between the president-elect and former Vice President Al Gore may have given environmental activists a glimmer of hope that Mr. Trump was moderating his campaign stance. Mr. Trump told New York Times editors and reporters that he does think there is some connectivity” between human activity and a warming planet.
