EPA chief should accept scientific expertise

EPA chief should accept scientific expertise”

The American Meteorological Society pushed back on Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt's stance on climate change in a letter on Monday, joining a chorus of opposition from critics of the Trump administration. "The Agency aims to regulate Carbon dioxide emissions since 2007 and states that "[CO2] is the primary greenhouse gas emitted by human activities", according to EPA's website.

"So no, I would not agree that it's a primary contributor to the global warming that we see".

"But we don't know that yet".

Pruitt said the Supreme Court's decision should not have been viewed as permission for the EPA to regulate carbon dioxide emissions.

But his more recent comments drew more attention, as environmentalists and Democrats criticized him for disagreeing with scientists.

Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt may want to listen to what Stephen Colbert has to say.

William Jennings Bryan, who opposed the teaching of Darwin's concept of biological evolution by leading the criminal prosecution of teacher John T. Scopes in Tennessee, was the Scott Pruitt of 1925.

"The arsonist is now in charge of the fire department, and he seems happy to let the climate crisis burn out of control", said Sierra Club executive director Michael Brune. "The legislative branch has not addressed this issue at all", Mr Pruitt said. Just look at the Climate Leadership Council, a group of prominent Republicans, including former US secretaries of State and Treasury, who are pushing a proposal to put a price on carbon in exchange for reducing other regulations.

Recently, Trump tried to deny all the EPA's workers to talk about anything on social networks or with journalists.

In an interview with "Fox News Sunday", moderator Chris Wallace pointed out to Mr. Trump that in the space of a week he both met with former Vice President Al Gore and appointed Pruitt to head the EPA. Colbert then suggested what really could be behind global warming, and it involved Pruitt himself. The Natural Resources Defense Fund submitted a Freedom of Information Act request on Friday asking the agency for any documents Pruitt relied on to formulate his stance on climate change, including records of any meetings or other communications he has had about the topic. The plan includes eliminating the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the USA rule, both Obama-era initiatives which the new administration touts as increasing wages by the billions.

With this new comments from EPA's administrator, environmental organizations all over the world are giving their opinion and worry about what to expect from this new administration in climate topics.
