EPA’s Pruitt hammers Obama environmental record: ‘What did they achieve?…Flint and Gold King’

-

 

Interviewed by WDAY’s Rob Port, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt excoriates the Obama Administration’s environmental record.
Pruitt: “What did they achieve? With respect to water you had Flint and Gold King. With respect to Superfund sites you have 1322, approximately, Superfund sites across the country which is more than when President Obama came in. Air attainment? Still at 40 percent non-attainment in this country, with respect to Ozone. Roughly 130 to 140 million people living in non-attainment. What’s so great about that record?”
ADMINISTRATOR PRUITT: “Look at the past Administration’s environmental record and ask yourself, ‘What did they achieve?’ With respect to water you had Flint and Gold King in Colorado. With respect to Superfund sites you have 1322, approximately, Superfund sites across the country which is more than when President Obama came in. Air attainment? Still at 40 percent non-attainment in this country, with respect to Ozone. Roughly 130 to 140 million people living in non-attainment. What’s so great about that record? On carbon, they tried twice to regulate CO2 and struck out twice. Supreme Court told them in UARG– the UARG decision that they overreached and they told them in the Clean Power Plan that they overreached. So, I don’t quite understand the environmental left when they say that somehow what the past Administration has done was so great.”
