The New York Times made it a front-page story: "EPA Chief Doubts Consensus View of Climate Change."

Trump's appointed head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, stated (again) that carbon dioxide was not "a primary contributor to the global warming that we see." He added, "We need to continue the debate and continue the review and the analysis."

For those who follow clean air and water issues to protect the health of our families, Pruitt's statement was no surprise. (It was insane that someone with his track record of suing the EPA and unreleased emails to fossil fuel powers, got confirmed in the first place.)

So where does that leave us?

Ever vigilant.

The Trump environmental team may think that it's okay to continually relitigate science. However, most Americans don't.

The Yale Program on Climate Change Communication updated their Opinion Map this month (incorporating findings from 2014-2016). This interactive mapping of the country is remarkable. America can be broken down by states, Congressional Districts, metro areas, and hyperlocal counties.
