WASHINGTON - In a highly partisan vote, the U.S. Senate today confirmed President Trump’s selection of Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency. Only a single Republican broke party ranks to oppose Pruitt, a climate change denier who has repeatedly sued the EPA to block lifesaving pollution-prevention measures.
The fight is on Pruitt. People who care about the environment, the health of their family, neighbors, and world need to support organizations like the Center for Biological Diversity, the Natural Resources Defense Council, The Sierra Club, and so on who will sue the pants off of Pruitt (unfortunately, they will be suing the EPA) if he tries to dismantle the agency or ignore regulations. It seems that this along with civil disobedience, protesting, and so forth are the only courses of action that people have at their disposal.
