Scott Pruitt Has Betrayed the Mission, the National Interest and the Public Trust As administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Pruitt has a single overriding responsibility: to protect the environment and public health. Instead, he's protecting big polluters as he moves to delay or weaken needed safeguards at the direct behest of one industrial lobbyist after another. It's time for him to go.

6 Ways Trump Is Bad for Food, Health and the Environment In the past year, Trump and his enablers have been unrelenting in their attacks on food safety, environmental protections, climate change, government transparency and so many other values we hold dear. We are in the midst of the most significant environmental and public health challenges imaginable. We're no longer dreading the harm the Trump administration could do to our health and environment -- we're living it.

Trump Administration, Which Wants More Offshore Drilling, Shuts Down Study Into Its Safety Sierra Club's Kelly Martin said the move was in line with the Trump administration's push for a major expansion of offshore drilling. "I think this is an example of Trump demonstrating he wants to open up federal waters to more drilling at the expense of people on the planet," Martin told the Associated Press. "He is much more supportive of corporate polluters than protecting people's safety."

Rick Perry Tells Africa to Drill, Frack and Dig Coal Given the agenda of the Trump Administration and given that Perry was governor of oil rich Texas, Perry said they were keen for those partnerships to include fossil fuels. There is nothing clean about what Perry is advocating. There is no such thing as clean coal: it is a misnomer. Parry's strategy is basically: drill Africa drill; frack, Africa, frack and mine for coal, Africa, mine for coal.

This will cost the department $2 million a year in salaries alone and does not include training, equipment or travel. No other administrator has needed 24/7 security but Pruitt has reportedly received more death threats than any other EPA chief.

Pope Francis on Climate Change Deniers: "Man Is Stupid" Pope Francis said that individuals and world leaders have a moral responsibility to help preserve the environment or else be judged by history for their inaction. He said that those who doubt that human activity causes climate change should consult with scientists. Trump remains steadfast about his climate denial, despite expert opinions that Earth's rising temperatures contributed to the devastation of Hurricanes.
