Pruitt: Goal is to roll EPA back from ‘weaponized’ past
Excerpt from TheHill.com:
That weaponization, he said, was the authority the EPA took to determine what types of energy should be supported, such as coal versus solar.
“Weaponized in the sense of saying we are going to favor certain outcomes in the market with respect to energy and the environment — that’s not the role of a regulator,” he said.
With regards to climate change, Pruitt reinforced his thoughts that the climate is changing, but chastised scientists who have predicted global temperatures in the future.
“There are things we know and things we don’t know. I think it’s pretty arrogant for people in 2018 to say, ‘We know what the ideal surface temperature should be in the year 2100,'” said Pruitt.
