Newly released emails show senior Environmental Protection Agency officials working closely with a conservative group that dismisses climate change to rally like-minded people for public hearings on science and global warming, counter negative news coverage and promote Administrator Scott Pruitt's stewardship of the agency. John Konkus, EPA's deputy associate administrator for public affairs, repeatedly reached out to senior staffers at the Heartland Institute, according to the emails.

Your Marxism is showing.

What's wrong with corporations? Most people work for them, invest in them, and they produce more product for a cheaper price. Corporations are us. They are the everyday American.

It's happy news when a government agency listens to Americans.
Corporations are the new world government that you market folks like say you hate. Trump says "Make America great again" as he gives tax breaks to corporations. Oops only certain ones. He likes to pick and choose who gets the help. So much for free market that you tout so much. What a paradox. How is that different than subsidizing green energy?

He has placed saboteurs as heads of critical departments with no science background and depreciates the findings of reputable scientists. How does depreciating the scientific, security, intelligence and law enforcing institutions along with undermining the media form a better Union? You need to critically study and answer these questions instead of supporting a tribalistic view of America.

Letting corporations keep the money they make does make America Great again.

Energy doesn't have a color,#138. Subsidizing wind and solar energy is not a productive use of money.

You need to learn what science is and why,#138. You need to break away from the Church of Karl Marx and the Church of Global Warming and stop denying science.

Doofus's only argument is to say science is an extension of the Church of Karl Marx.

Are you saying that is okay for Trump to give economic favor the steel and aluminum industry as well as the coal industry but it is not okay for solar and wind. Then call that free market? What a doofus.

BTW, I don't hate corportsion either. Getting a little flustered doofus?

False dichotomy. Supporting Trump and his policies does not mean disrespecting the environment.

Guys like you are really ingrates. Part of my business is cleaning up the environment.
