Today, the U.S. Senate approved President Trump’s nominee, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, to head the Environmental Protection Agency. Jamie Williams, president of The Wilderness Society said:

“Americans deserve an Environmental Protection Agency that protects the health and safety of the public, especially the purity of our water and the quality of our air. Scott Pruitt has made it clear that this is not his agenda.

“Of particular concern are Administrator Pruitt’s deceptive statements on climate change science intended to mislead the public and sow doubt. Our nation faces unprecedented challenges from human-caused climate change, and the Trump administration should be working to fix the problem, not convince the public it does not exist.”
