The Washington Post reports that U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt is planning to reorganize the agency’s small museum, located in the Ronald Reagan International Trade Building, to reflect President Trump’s policies. Existing displays include the EPA’s work over the last four decades, including the regulation of carbon dioxide pollution and the Paris climate accord, which Trump withdrew from in June. Now Pruitt wishes to swap the museum’s climate exhibits for …coal exhibits, of course! Pruitt often says: “The future ain’t what it used to be at the EPA.” Well, looks like the past is in for some adulterations, too.
