Meteorologists Warn Pruitt Against 'Mischaracterizing' Climate Science

Just look at the Climate Leadership Council, a group of prominent Republicans, including former USA secretaries of State and Treasury, who are pushing a proposal to put a price on carbon in exchange for reducing other regulations.

Mr. Pruitt's denial of the obvious is strikingly out of step. The Republican-controlled Congress could potentially issue a strong signal to the EPA that carbon dioxide should not be regulated by the agency, a move that would undermine many Obama-era rules aimed at curbing emissions.

Kerry Emanuel, professor of atmospheric science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said Thursday that "Scott Pruitt is just plain wrong on this".

"In reality, the world's seven billion people are causing climate to change and our emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are the primary cause", the group's executive director, Keith Seitter, wrote in the letter.

Receding glaciers in Antarctica have led to an 85-percent decline in a major population of Adelie penguins.

Pruitt "is spewing corporate polluter talking points rather than fulfilling the EPA's mission of protecting our air, our water and our communities", Brune said, noting that EPA has a legal responsibility to address carbon pollution.

In response to Pruitt's statement, Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, who is co-chair of the Senate Climate Action Task Force, described the EPA chief's statement as extreme and irresponsible, saying that anyone who denies basic facts and a century's worth of established science is not fit to be the EPA's administrator.

Pruitt filed a half-dozen lawsuits against the EPA as Oklahoma's attorney general. As James Baker, the former Secretary of State under President George H.W. Bush said last month, the risks of climate change are "too great to ignore". Maybe CO2 isn't the number one cause of global warming.

It also is clear to the EPA itself, whose website conspicuously directly contradicts Mr. Pruitt.

EPA is a crucial agency when it comes to issues and actions linked to climate change. While details of the proposal raise significant concerns, it nonetheless sends a powerful message about the seriousness of climate change.

"This is a conclusion based on the comprehensive assessment of scientific evidence". Appearing on a March 9 CNBC program, Mr. Pruitt said, "I think that measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do and there's tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact, so no, I would not agree that it's a primary contributor to the global warming that we see".

Global warming not primarily caused by CO2, says Donald Trump's environment chief Scott Pruitt
