    That's ok. Hillary's pick would have been just as bad, right Green Party voters?

    Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt said Thursday he does not believe carbon dioxide is a primary contributor to global warming.

    "I think that measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do and there's tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact, so no, I would not agree that it's a primary contributor to the global warming that we see," he told CNBC's "Squawk Box."

    "But we don't know that yet. ... We need to continue the debate and continue the review and the analysis."

    He's right--there is tremendous disagreement.

    Between those who know what they are talking about and those that do not. It's really that simple.

    Its things like this that make it hard not to be angry at Trump voters. I know we should be trying to bring them to our side, especially the ones that are starting to question their vote. But jesus, putting these arseholes in charge and in positions to make decisions like these is infuriating.

    The EPA Chief disagrees with 97% of the scientists. Just great. No need to be concerned about the environment when the seas are rising.

    The people who nominated, voted for, and are Scott Pruitt are an absolute disgrace.

    Is everything
    This is what happens when Republicans have control of everything with very little checks and balances. The courts are the only thing that can save us for now, at least until they are full of Trump appointees.

    EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said it was “fairly arrogant” of scientists to conclude that climate change was definitely bad for humans, telling a local news channel that “there’s assumptions made that because the climate is warming, that that necessarily is a bad thing.”
