EPA docs don’t show any scientific evidence for Scott Pruitt’s climate claims - Ars Technica

It appears Scott Pruitt’s positions were utterly unencumbered by fact

The Environmental Protection Agency, that he was unceremoniously expelled from for financial corruption is still apparently attempting to work out how to back him up when he stated on national TV that :

Far too inconvenient.

On second thoughts … admitting he even recognised global warming existed in the first place was clearly a slip of the tongue, tut tut.
