President Elect-Trump has announced his choice of Scott Pruitt, Attorney General of Oklahoma, to head the EPA.
Given Trump’s campaign rhetoric rejecting climate change and intentions to repeal all of Obama’s environmental regulations, this doesn’t come as a complete surprise. Pruitt has made it the signature of his career to sue the EPA in an attempt to stop or roll back virtually every major clean air, clean water regulation there is, and every and all climate related regulations.
This appointment spells disaster for air quality. A Pruitt led EPA will have direct consequences to the air quality along the Wasatch Front. Please help us in asking Utah Senators Hatch and Lee to deny the confirmation of Pruitt to the EPA.
