Rhea Suh, Ellen Spitalnik.
“Scott Pruitt is the worst pick ever confirmed to lead the EPA.”
Rhea Suh, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council reacts to the confirmation of Sott Pruitt as new head of the EPA. Pruitt is an outspoken denier of man-made climate change and has close ties to the coal and oil industries.
“Scott Pruitt represents what we environmental lawyers call an ‘imminent and substantial endangerment’ to our health and environment.”
Adds Ellen Spitalnik, a former EPA attorney, who served Republican and Democratic administrations for 22 years.
