this fucking cunt








WASHINGTON — Scott Pruitt, the Environmental Protection Agency administrator who has aggressively pushed to dismantle regulations and downsize the organization, is threatening to reach outside his agency and undermine the Justice Department’s work enforcing antipollution laws, documents and interviews show.

Under Mr. Pruitt, the E.P.A. has quietly said it may cut off a major funding source for the Justice Department’s Environment and Natural Resources Division. Its lawyers handle litigation on behalf of the E.P.A.’s Superfund program seeking to force polluters to pay for cleaning up sites they left contaminated with hazardous waste. The E.P.A. reimburses the Justice Department for that work, paying more than $20 million annually in recent years, or enough for 115 full-time employees, budget documents show.

But Mr. Pruitt has signaled that he wants to end those payments, potentially carving a major hole in the division’s budget, in a little-noticed line in the E.P.A.’s budget proposal in the spring. No decision will be made until Congress passes an E.P.A. budget for the fiscal year that begins in October, officials at both agencies said, although the payments were created by the executive branch, not Congress, so Mr. Pruitt may be able to act on his own. Congress hopes to pass a spending plan before a stopgap measure expires in mid-December.

Mr. Pruitt, a former attorney general of Oklahoma with strong ties to the fossil fuel industry who frequently sued the E.P.A. before President Trump placed him in charge of it, has made no secret of his ambition to unwind its regulations and shrink its work force to curtail what he sees as federal overreach in protecting the environment and public health.

The prospect of Mr. Pruitt expanding his efforts to the Justice Department has raised worries among employees in the Environment and Natural Resources Division about potential layoffs or furloughs and significant reductions in their work to fight pollution in the nation’s waterways, soil and air.

Because they would continue to be responsible for pursuing Superfund cases, cutbacks would likely be spread across the division’s workload, which also includes suing oil companies, power plants and other corporations when they violate such antipollution laws as the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the Oil Pollution Act.

Environmental Protection Agency cancels the speaking appearance of three agency scientists scheduled to discuss climate change at conference on Monday in Rhode Island


Climate data deleted

Critics see pulling the talk as the latest move by the US environment agency to downplay the threat of manmade climate change, and have accused it of showing a growing disregard for science.

Since Pruitt took charge, the agency has rebranded its website and deleted pages focusing on climate change – confirming the fears of scientists and activists who saved government climate data onto independent servers ahead of Trump's inauguration in January.

The EPA's website overhaul began in April. Last week, it republished online information on energy-related policy for state and local governments, deleting a dozen pages on how they can help curb CO2 emissions and adapt to extreme weather.

According to a monitoring report by the Environmental Data and Governance Initiative, all mentions of "climate change" have been removed from the main page. And significant amounts of material about global warming lead to dead or circuitous links, making it difficult for the public to access scientific data.

Professor Bethany Wiggin from the University of Pennsylvania worked with the Data Refuge project to copy thousands of webpages before Trump's inauguration. She said the destruction of information is "horrifying" but not surprising. Forbidding government scientists from participating in conferences takes things to another level, she stressed.

"Pruitt is in fact waging what appears to be an all-out war on science, its methods, and the legions of scientists and researchers who would explore, document, and hope to remedy the reality of climate change and other environmental issues."

Reversing climate regulations

Pruitt's attack on climate action goes beyond controlling information on global warming. Under his leadership, the EPA has moved to undo dozens of climate regulations.

On October 16, the agency ended a so-called "sue and settle" practice, which several environmental organizations had used to sue the EPA for not fulfilling its legal obligations under the Clean Air Act or Clean Water Act. The resulting settlements drove recent clean air regulations.

Earlier this month, Pruitt announced the end of the Clean Power Plan that restricted carbon emissions from power plants. Pruitt has repeatedly said he does not believe that manmade greenhouse gas emissions are primarily responsible for global warming. Since he was appointed by President Donald Trump in February this year, the EPA has deleted state information sources on climate change and moved to roll back legislation aimed at cutting emissions.
