Celebrate! Trump to pick ‘ardent opponent’ of Obama climate agenda to run EPA

-

U.S. President-Elect Donald Trump will pick an ardent opponent of President Barack Obama’s measures to stem climate change to head the Environmental Protection Agency, a Trump transition team source said on Wednesday.

Trump’s choice, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, has enraged environmental activists, but he fits with the Republican president-elect’s promise to cut the agency back and eliminate regulation that he says is stifling oil and gas drilling.
