    I mean, that’s what Trump and Steve Bannon have already hinted in the past.

    Also, it makes sense: appointing the guy who has sued the EPA 13 times to be the head of the EPA…

    Same with Betsy Devos: appoint the woman who has advocated for charter schools and private schools her whole adult life, to be in charge of US public education…

    Yes, and in a reality where reality no longer matters, these fucks can say and do anything with impunity. New Zealand is looking pretty appetizing rn

    A history lesson:

    Hillary Clinton’s negotiators agreed to plans for an urgent summit “in the first hundred days of the next administration” where the president will convene “the world’s best engineers, climate scientists, policy experts, activists, and indigenous communities to chart a course to solve the climate crisis.”

    Pruitt has been after the EPA as long as his puppet masters arms have been up his ass. He gets paid well by oil companies and now Trump to reverse a century of progress in protecting our environment from people who would use and abuse it for profit without regard for what they leave behind.

    What saddens me is that most people who wish to cut some government agencies don’t even understand the functions of those particular agencies. At least if they said, “this agency’s tasks are entirely unnecessary or there are more qualified people to do them, that is why we want the agency to be abolished” I would understand. But it’s always about fighting government operations with little to no regard of their contribution to the livelihood of citizens.

    Then the states will create their own environmental agencies and policies. Many will have much more stringent policies than the federal EPA. The states that lax their policies and pollute will probably be warred with, civilly. Actually, there probably would be quite a few similarities with the US Civil War. Maybe even the same division of states. Seems we must repeat history to Make America Great Again.

    * Donald Trump: Fuck democracy. I’m the law.
    * Betsy DuVos: Fuck the education system. Educated people are a threat.
    * Scott Pruitt: Fuck the planet. Corporations first.
    * Ajit Pai: Fuck the internet. ISP’s need unlimited power.
    * Steve Bannon: Fuck the press. Fascists should control what is said
    * Jeff sessions: Fuck the justice system. Protect the corrupt…

    I’m going to say that’s a “yes.”

    Has it ever been doubted that Pruitt was installed at the top of the EPA to do exactly one thing: rip the organization apart from the inside out. The people that helped elect Trump and Trump himself believe that government regulation is harmful and stifles “progress.” How is Pruitt’s “maybe” confirmation of this inside job a shock? Week after week the scary revelations and continued deregulation continue. Even if the EPA survives his tenure, it will be hollowed out and ineffective from the damage done by this bunch of anti-regulation, anti-conservation Charlatans.

    I thought the Trump campaign already claimed to want to dismantle the EPA.

    If true, this isn’t anything surprising. The writing has been on the wall…although maybe it wasn’t clear enough since the wall isn’t finished being built yet.

    who cares about what he says. he’ll say whatever he wants but the actions are clear… the intent to completely dismantle the federal bureaucracy is implicit in this administration’s picks for the heads of every governmental agency…
