Trump’s upcoming meeting with Chinese President Xi comes as China is calling on the U.S. not to break its 2015 Paris Agreement pledges.

EPA Head Says U.S. Should Not Prioritize Renewables Over Fossil Fuels

H07 pruitt

Speaking Sunday on Fox News, Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt said the government shouldn’t promote renewables over fossil fuels.

Scott Pruitt: “We shouldn’t have this commitment by the U.S. government to say that fossil fuels are bad, renewables are good. The U.S. EPA and the U.S. government should not pick winners and losers, Chris. And that’s what happened in the last several years.”

Last week, EPA head Scott Pruitt also rejected an effort to ban a farming insecticide, even though scientists have concluded the Dow Chemical product leads to a range of learning and memory impairments in farm workers and their children.

    Global warming theory is so malleable that it predicts anything. More cold, less cold. More snow, less snow. What a powerful theory. And what’s even more amazing is that climate change can be averted by just increasing your taxes! Sorry snowflakes, adults in charge now…make up your science on your own dime.

      So, is much of the Bible, but I am still an evangelical christian, Bro. I just critically look at things and pray. What do you do? I looked at that statistical analysis on man-made climate change every year since 1995 and saw the verdict the evidence draws. Even gambler have checked the odds agains betting against climate change’s realities and they overwhelmingly bet on the evidence. What do you believe youo know that 90% of the planet does? I stand close to God’s message to take care of the planet and hedge the bets by preparing–not waiting for the worst.
