EPA's relief and worries after exit of scandal-plagued boss Scott Pruitt

There are 25 comments on the New York Daily News story from Jul 7, 2018, titled EPA's relief and worries after exit of scandal-plagued boss Scott Pruitt. In it, New York Daily News reports that:

Taking over from an ambitious predecessor known for seeking out the rich, powerful and conservative, the Environmental Protection Agency's newly named acting chief has promised to reach out to anxious staffers throughout the demoralized agency and to lawmakers of both political parties. By late afternoon Friday, there had been no public comment from either Scott Pruitt, whose resignation President Donald Trump announced Thursday after months of Pruitt's ethics scandals, or Andrew Wheeler, the Washington veteran and former coal lobbyist who Trump announced as the agency's acting head.

The EPA probably just went out of the carbon dioxide frying pan into the methane fire.

Yes, it did. Democrats are not going to get their way about the phony global warming story. We are way past that for now.

Americans inhale enough formaldehyde to risk developing Leukemia, cancer and other diseases. What is wrong with the people running our country that they don't give a damn about the air we are breathing? They breathe the same air and if they think that money matters more then the quality of air that we all depend on to survive, it is not going to be very long before many more people will succumb to diseases. Not sure why they are stalling on this, although money is likely behind it as it is in everything political. Bought and sold by big corporations who are the cause and don't care about anyone or anything but $$$$$.

Trouble is, there's still a fossil-fuel f---head in charge of the place, every bit as much a lackey of coal and oil as Pruitt was.

When your beach houses are all flooded, don't come to the (at that point, Democratic) government and beg for tax relief, comrade.

No money for climate-denying losers. Nosireebob...

You will be dead, and rotten before the Democrats get back into power again. Haven't you noticed? It is four months until a major election, and all they can talk about is President Trump. Are they really going to raise taxes? There's a winner. Go for gun control? Chalk up another winner. Invite more MS13 gangbangers into the country? Open the borders to every rapist, and thief escaping Mexican, and South American justice? These are not winning issues.

You're brain dead and your soul is rotten.

Yes, Trump is destroying America so quickly, it will be a depopulated wasteland like Trump's beloved Russia long before the worst effects of climate change are felt.

But for nations with a future, Global Warming is an issue.

Agree 100%. But to Trumpsters like "Annie," global warming is purely a political issue. Why? Because someone told her it was.

It's not like she's capable of independent thought...lol

Most Republicans hate their children who also hate them back, and so they care little for the future.

Global Warming is a hoax, and everyone knows it. It is another way to get money out of the taxpayers for a government slush fund. Maybe if Democrat didn't lie so much we could believe them, but they do, and we cannot. If they were really bright they would not be losing the Senate. When Republicans had to defend 23 seats in 2016 they lost 2 seats. Democrats are defending 22 in November an they are losing 5 with 2 running even with their Republican opponent. You cannot win elections protecting gang bangers like MS13, and coddling illegal aliens.

You lie, and every post shows it. Global warming is not a political issue, except to Faux News-loving, brain-dead, anti-scientific, uneducated Righties. Like you.

Your party is the Party of Lies. Don't deflect or project.

My party is the Party of winners. It is easy to win a special election, or easy to get donations for an election if you are winning. Republicans are rolling in donations, and all their debts are paid. Democrats are in debt, and are not collecting that many donations. Uncle Georgie, the Hungarian foreigner with billions can only pay for so much.

Desperate Donald Trump and his real friends in the oil industry (not the suckers in his base, of course) know more than these guys according to you, a brainwashed lackey:

I must say I am enjoying the Trump Administration's approach to governing. While the zombie people are screaming, and running in the streets burning and looting for $50. a day and free booze President Trump is making up for lost time by "getting 'er done!!" Every day Americans know if their lives are better then they were under the last 2 Presidents, and they are, and they will count their new money all the way to the ballot box.
