Scott Pruitt’s Reformation
Ever wondered what drives EPA Chairman Scott Pruitt?
In less than a year, the EPA chief has given climate change activists a nervous breakdown with his efforts to roll back the Obama administration's policies.
The National Review tracked Pruitt on a visit to Iowa.
From the article:
Stewardship, Pruitt says, is making responsible use of our national blessings, including our natural resources: “Feed the world and fuel the world,” he says, over and over. But the Left — and the EPA, which has long been dominated by it — is not interested in stewardship. It’s interested in prohibition, in a lot of Thou shalt and a whole heck of a lot more Thou shalt not. “You have two different approaches, two different worldviews, two very different sets of assumptions,” Pruitt says.
and another one:
This is Pruitt's element, and he respects his hosts enough to forgo pretending that there are easy answers to their concerns or that they're going to get everything they want — even if he were personally inclined to give the Iowans their way on every jot and tittle, he's serious about hewing to a conservative interpretation of his legal power."
