    I guess the knucklehead doesn't realize water temperature rises too. Let's put him in an ocean front home in Miami and see what happens as the sea level rises just a mere few feet.

    They certainly aren’t in agreement as to how much carbon is affecting the planet.
    Nor how much needs to be reduced to make any changes.

    Regardless of mistakes made by previous administrations, both Republican and Democratic, I have no confidence in the current administration to advance the process of further study, to our common peril.

    And he wants to end the program that sets goals for vehicle fuel efficiency. Seriously, these anti-policies are a joke

    We know that carbon in the atmosphere does affect the planet in many negatively desired ways and we know that reducing carbon in the atmosphere would mitigate these affects. It's semantics what you claim.

    But even the biggest climate skeptic in the world understands that pollution is NOT good for the world. You can argue until blue in the face that Co2 is not a bad thing, but can't in good conscience argue that increasing the use of coal is NOT bad for the environment. There's no such thing as "clean coal" as Trump and Pruitt keep touting. Intentionally undermining renewables like solar and wind to try and push the coal and oil agenda(for personal financial gain) is going to harm the environment.

    There's just no rational reason to NOT reduce emissions of CO2 because most emissions of Co2 occur as part of pollution.

    We knew he fought against the EPA for personal enrichment (the ONLY reason people and companies usually do so). Why should it change now, that he's in charge of it?

    This guy is a nut.

    In a new interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt defended his support for fossil fuels and rolling back environmental protections by citing his Christian faith, saying “the biblical world view with respect to these issues is that we have a responsibility to manage and cultivate, harvest the natural resources that we've been blessed with to truly bless our fellow mankind.”
