Scott Pruitt – Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency

 

Edward Scott Pruitt (born May 9, 1968) is the fourteenth Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Nominated by President Donald Trump, confirmed by the Senate on February 17, 2017.  As Attorney General of Oklahoma, he opposed abortion rights, same-sex marriage, the Affordable Care Act, and environmental regulations as a self-described “leading advocate against the EPA’s activist agenda.” In his campaigns for Oklahoma Attorney General, Pruitt received campaign contributions from the fossil fuel industry. As Oklahoma’s Attorney General, Pruitt sued the Environmental Protection Agency at least 14 times regarding the agency’s actions and rejects the scientific consensus that human activities are a primary contributor to climate change and that carbon dioxide is the primary contributor.
