I'm a bit confused, Donald. You're for the EPA protecting clean air and water, unless it's a global scale threat from climate change? Is that because one country alone can't completely combat global threats? Are you in favor of an international effort to counter such threats, like the Paris Accord? But EPA actions directly impact our ability to do our part in cooperative actions.

No, Ruth.  Just that part that concerns "man-made" global warming.  I'm sure you're not surprised at that, since it is what I've been saying for the last year, or two.

I'm all for keeping the air clean.

So you're in favor of eliminating the EPA, Donald?

Comment by Donald L. Engel on December 10, 2016 at 12:54pm

I think it's the first thing Trump has done right.  He had Al Gore in to give his spiel on "Man-made" global warming, and then confirmed his choice was Pruitt.

The apparent decision to put Oklahoma state attorney general Scott Pruitt in charge of the EPA is “like putting an arsonist in charge of fighting fires”.    Sierra Club

Jennifer Francis:

“We’re in this new world that’s much much warmer with much less sea ice and that’s changing the way the atmosphere behaves,” said Francis. “It’s an interesting time to be studying this, but the bad news is, we’re watching this planet fall apart.”

I found their story interesting to, Daniel. Because it was expected climate deniers would misconstrue their algorithm to "prove" CO2 wasn't responsible for climate change, their article was initially rejected.

Here is a tale of two scientists who, in an effort to counter bias regarding their alternative climate change paradigm, published under pseudonyms.

Their research, analysis, and conclusions should stand or fall on the merit, or lack of merit, contained within. Not on who they are. Kind of an interesting story.

Tonya, we should treat one another with respect. People don't have to agree with each other and often don't.
