Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s expected nomination to head EPA today drew sharp criticism from green groups and environmental advocates in Congress, including former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who said he would oppose the “sad and dangerous” move.

Dan Pfeiffer, a former top Obama adviser put it more succinctly, tweeting, “At the risk of being dramatic. Scott Pruitt at EPA is an existential threat to the planet.”

Pruitt’s nomination also had environmentalists seeing red.

Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune called Pruitt’s nomination “like putting an arsonist in charge of fighting fires,” while League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski compared it to “the fox guarding the henhouse.”
