EPA chief Pruitt wants to be captain of a new debate team (on climate change, sigh)
Here he goes again, blowing more smoke about climate change. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt says he wants to have his own debate team to “essentially re-litigate the science of climate change.” In a recent interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, the EPA chief made his position clear, stating that he doesn’t agree that carbon dioxide is a primary contributor to global warming. His denial puts him squarely at odds with the actual scientific views of his own agency. Pruitt suggested to the alt-right news outlet Brietbart, “What the American people, deserve, I think, is a true, legitimate, peer-reviewed, objective, transparent discussion about CO2.” Been there, done that. Despite the fact that 97 percent of climate scientists conclude that climate change is happening and human activity significantly contributes to it, Pruitt thinks lobbyists for big polluters know better.
