American Bridge Statement On Scott Pruitt’s Nomination for EPA Administrator

American Bridge President Jessica Mackler issued the following statement on Donald Trump’s nomination of climate science-denier Scott Pruitt to lead the EPA:

“In one of Donald Trump’s most dangerous nominations yet, he’s tapped a climate science-denier in the pocket of Big Oil to serve as administrator of the EPA, which on Scott Pruitt’s watch will on Day One become Every Polluters’ Agency.

“It’s ironic — and terrifying — that Scott Pruitt is set to lead to an agency that he hates; because as the threat of global warming looms and sea levels rise, Pruitt’s nomination and assured efforts to roll back President Obama’s work to protect our environment are a threat to America’s national and economic security.”
