Washington, DC: In response to Scott Pruitt’s appearance on CNBC this morning denying the science of climate change, League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement from Tiernan Sittenfeld, SVP for Government Affairs.
“This is completely unacceptable. Scott Pruitt’s denial of climate science ignores the EPA’s own findings under both Democrats and Republicans. His refusal to acknowledge carbon dioxide as a major contributor to climate change puts all of us in danger. His pattern of misleading Congress and the public, while parroting polluter industry talking points as he attempts to roll back critical environmental and public health safeguards, is beyond the pale.”
