The GOOD news is that Scott Pruitt has JUST resigned from the EPA. Don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out, Scott. The BAD news is that Trump has just appointed himself the acting administrator of the EPA:
From Scott Pruitt's resignation letter:
“My desire in service to you has always been to bless you as you make important decisions for the American people,” he wrote. “I believe you are serving as president today because of God’s providence. I believe that same providence brought me into your service. I pray as I have served you that I have blessed you and enabled you to effectively lead the American people. Thank you again Mr. President for the honor of serving you and I wish you Godspeed in all that you put your hand to.”
They live in an alternative reality...
The problem with Pruitt's replacement is that we'll get another EPA chief that's just as bad with rolling back clean air and clean water regulations. Trump will install another just to serve his ego and give the scorch the earth people who they want, people to circumvent laws that protect us all. Forget the boil order for water, it'll have petroleum distillates in it and you might blow up your home.
I've nothing to add, except I Hope the rest of the world turns its back to the US and tries to keep this planet clean. The consequences are still to come with an rise in cancer patients etc. Here in FL the pollution at the coast makes it just about impossible to go to the beach; it is getting worse each year.
The "deputy" is as bad ; an ex coal lobbyist. Then we have "Zinky" who wants to ruin our national parks. Yes this present government loves to ruin everything what they touch.
