Delingpole: Trump’s EPA Pick Proves He’s Serious About Slaying the Green Monster

Breitbart: Anyone who doubts that President-elect Donald Trump means business on slaying the “Green Blob” really needs to look at the guy he has just appointed to head the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt is a friend of the fossil fuel industry and an outspoken critic of the EPA’s activist agenda.

Though his academic degrees are in political science and law, Pruitt has been a vocal public denier of the overwhelming consensus of the world’s climate scientists that the Earth is warming and that man-made carbon emissions are to blame. In an opinion article published earlier this year by National Review, Pruitt suggested that the debate over global warming “is far from settled” and claimed “scientists continue to disagree about the degree and extent of global warming and its connection to the actions of mankind.”

Does Pruitt sound to you like the pick of a president-elect who is having second thoughts on his aggressive stance towards the environmental lobby?  more

  1. This choice, more then any other so far, has REgressives clutching their chests as their hearts explode. The fucking EPA has been running amok for years-where in the Constitution does it allow these unelected bureaucracies to write regs that are backed up with their own SWAT teams??

    Cruise some of the leftie sites like DU, KOS or CommonDreams and bring some popcorn. It’s a thing of beauty.

    Remember just a couple weeks ago when he visited the NYT and assured Tom Friedman that his fears were unfounded and he was on the climate change train? Oh man, Trump is The Man.

  2. “Climate change denier.” That about says it all — if only they could have dropped the suffix -phobe in there somewhere, right? Global Warmingphobe?

    Can’t wait for the first House Oversight committee meeting on the effects of greenhouse gas — and the parade of real scientists trotting out the real science.

  3. The whole globe will neither heat up or cool all evenly or everywhere at once.
    During the ice ages there were still great deserts.
    This is a sham and the whole ‘settled science’ thing is crap and the left knows it and they are relying on the sheep mentality of the masses to get their hooks into the gravy train.
    Not even Gravity is settled science
