Our environment is doomed...Sen. Inhofe endorses Pruitt for EPA leadership
I've had this clip in my draft folder for several days now and I have to get it out there. Sen. James Inhofe, anti-science, has endorsed AG Scott Pruitt for heading the EPA. This is a disaster in the making. I don't know what pull Inhofe has in the confirmation hearings for the EPA, but he is chair of the Senate Environment Committee. The fox guarding the hen house.
In his speech, Inhofe said:
Pruitt has seen first-hand the abuses of power at the hands of this agency and has fought back to ensure environmental quality without sacrificing jobs.
What abuses? Since its inception in 1970, the EPA has managed to lower harmful and toxic emissions from fuel-burning power plants. The abuses will come at the hands of Pruitt, a global warming-denier, absolutely no background in environmental issues and a total disregard for the Earth.
