“I think that there’s assumptions made that because the climate is warming, that that necessarily is a bad thing.”
Scott Pruitt, head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Climate change denier Pruitt went on to say, “Do we really know what the ideal surface temperature should be in the year 2100, in the year 2018? That’s fairly arrogant for us to think that we know exactly what it should be in 2100.”
He’s right. What difference does it make what the surface temperature will be in the year 2100? Almost all of us will be dead in 82 years and the human race will likely be extinct by then as a result of global warming.
And this is the man that Donald Trump chose to head up the EPA, the federal agency whose mission it is supposed to be to protect human health and the environment.
Scott Pruitt, just another one of the swamp creatures of the Trump administration.
