Scott Pruitt, Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), has made some outrageous statements lately, that really show us what he stands for. On CNBC he said that he does not believe that carbon dioxide causes climate change. He said: “I would not agree that it's a primary contributor." Then, on ABC's This Week, he slammed the 2015 Paris climate agreement as a "bad deal."
Pruitt's disregard for science is dangerous. It's a clear signal that Pruitt won't be making policy decisions based on facts. Instead, it seems he'll be basing policy decisions on the economic impacts to polluters.
