Our Revolution on Pruitt Confirmation

WASHINGTON -- Our Revolution on Friday called Scott Pruitt’s confirmation to head the Environmental Protection Agency  “the greatest direct threat to the environment that we’ve witnessed in a long time.”

“Scott Pruitt, the self-described ‘leading advocate’ against the EPA has millions of dollars tethering him to big polluters, and should have never been considered for this position to begin with,” said Our Revolution Executive Director Shannon Jackson. “Nominating someone who denies the science of climate change for this position was an egregious and reckless move by this administration and his confirmation further demonstrates that too many of our elected officials are unwilling to take a stand for what’s right. Addressing climate change should not be a partisan issue -- it's a moral imperative, and the future of our planet and future generations depend on it.”
