Environmental advocates watching in horror. Largest regulatory rollback over so short a time in the agency’s history.
“In the four months since he took office as the Environmental Protection Agency’s administrator, Scott Pruitt has moved to undo, delay or otherwise block more than 30 environmental rules, a regulatory rollback larger in scope than any other over so short a time in the agency’s 47-year history,” says this article in the New York Times,
The article, written by Coral Davenport, describes how Mr. Pruitt’s supporters, including President Trump, have hailed Pruitt’s moves, while environmental advocates have watched in horror.
But both sides agree, says Davenport, that Pruitt “is moving effectively to dismantle the regulations and international agreements that stood as a cornerstone of President Barack Obama’s legacy.”
Kudos to Mr. Pruitt.
And Kudos to President Trump for keeping his promises. He is slowly dragging us back from the edge of insanity.
