URGENT UPDATE: October 13th 2017
I CAN’T ____ing BELIEVE THIS
I am not prone to such outbursts in my blog…but read all of the attached…The be even more afraid.
Note that my sources are real…I revise my earlier note that this is a dangerous administration with regard to environmental issues…It is worse…It is an administration that has determined that ethics mean nothing, people don’t count at all and all that matters is how companies that are no longer sustainable can have their owners enriched at the expense of each of us.

Having had the pleasure of dealing with the USEPA over the years under different administrations and for different reasons, I find the actions of the current Administrator to be the most disturbing that I have ever witnessed. The current administrator seems to think that he can destroy the agency from within through his actions.
Worse yet, he is acting in a manner that clearly demonstrates that his dismantling of regulations is designed to harm more people in a short time in order to bolster polluters’ profits without regard to sound scientific principles or ideas. Why would he act in secret if this was not the case?
Scott Pruitt is a cancer on the agency and a real threat to the health and safety of our land, water and air.
I have not always agreed with the actions of administrators, but I at least have respected their intent. The current administrator clearly has an intent of destruction and he should be removed from office.
Since that is not likely to happen, we must call out his actions and make them public.
