Ever since President Trump appointed Oklahoma’s Attorney General to take over the EPA, econuts on the left have been foaming at the mouth.
Pruitt has singlehandedly begun to restructure the department and to unravel the legacy of its anti-capitalist, pro-global warming agenda.
And now he’s made a blockbuster decision to hold a public debate on global warming between scientists both for and against.
The goal of the debate is to help form the agency’s future approach to regulation on the environment.
But what we suspect is that Pruitt will use it as a forum to formally debunk the hot-air junk science that’s pervaded public policy for far too long.
Three cheers for Pruitt.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt is proceeding with a plan to conduct a debate among scientists within the agency to refine the government’s understanding of the climate change phenomenon.
E & E News reported on Friday:
U.S. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is leading a formal initiative to challenge mainstream climate science using a “back-and-forth critique” by government-recruited experts, according to a senior administration official.
The program will use “red team, blue team” exercises to conduct an “at-length evaluation of U.S. climate science,” the official said, referring to a concept developed by the military to identify vulnerabilities in field operations.
“The administrator believes that we will be able to recruit the best in the fields which study climate and will organize a specific process in which these individuals … provide back-and-forth critique of specific new reports on climate science,” the source said.
The original suggestion to use a “red team, blue team” approach to climate science appeared in a Wall Street Journal op-ed by physicist Steven Koonin in April.
