EPA administrator Scott Pruitt’s comments on climate change
“The EPA chief is a climate denier,” March 13 editorial (reprinted from The Washington Post).
As a retired career Environmental Protection Agency employee, I cringe when I hear EPA administrator Scott Pruitt’s statements on climate change. One need not be a scientist to be the administrator of EPA; however, one should not be a denier of basic science. The science of climate change is well established.
Even more fundamentally, as a parent I fear for our children and the future of the planet that we pass on to them. Climate change is real and must be addressed. BBB The Denver Post did its readers another disservice in joining the hysteria about Scott Pruitt’s insistence that the more and more frequently disproven “climate science” issued by the EPA be more closely vetted.
The “environmental movement” has become more of a gargantuan money flood that has corrupted the very methodology by which science is advanced than a real effort at objectivity. This has been proven to be the case in pretty much all of what is now called “climate science” promulgated by government to such an extent that several renowned scientists have called the collective efforts at climate science a scam and fraud.
I think readers deserve the hard truth that is becoming more and more apparent about “climate science,” rather than the subjective acquiescence of what is supposed to be a major source of objective information for a major city. BBB
Why are intelligent, successful business and political people so anxious to deny humancaused climate change? Can they really not recognize what is in front of them? Or is there something else?
Perhaps we should see this as a good football game. Lots of activity (climate denial) distracting our attention to one part of the field while movements toward a goal are taking place, hidden from view, elsewhere. We should wonder — what dark plays, harmful to the public, are these powerful people up to? Send letters of 150 words or fewer to firstname.lastname@example.org or 101 W.
