Next: Trump Will Put Roman Polanski in Charge of Child Protective Services

Donald [Fucking] Trump has selected Scott Pruitt, the Oklahoma attorney general and a close ally of the fossil J.fuel industry, to run the Environmental Protection Agency, signaling Mr. Trump’s determination to dismantle President Obama’s efforts to counter climate change — and much of the E.P.A. itself.
So we can now call it the "Environmental Pollution Agency".

Pruitt is a tool of the oil industry. He hasn't seen a resource he doesn't think should be extracted or an aquifer that he doesn't think should be polluted.

(In case you didn't get the reference.)

Roman may be well known but but just in the last year I have read about a half dozen Youth Pastors who are more experienced.

Hopefully he will gut the EPA so it can start over and keep the air and water clean with some common sense laws that work and yet allow industry to function, not be the organization it is now....And will employ people who use science, not emotion to rule.

If you really believe that, I can sell you a can of unicorn meat.

Trump thinks that climate change is a Chinese scam. There's already indications that he is going to purge everyone who works in that area.

The last national leader who put ideology over science was Josef Stalin, which is why nobody ever heard of noted Soviet biologists. Before that, another on ensured that he'd lose a war by assigning ideology to science.
