The latest globalist witch hunt is on as the New York Times declared incoming EPA head, Scott Pruitt, a “climate change denialist.”
President-elect Donald Trump has selected the Oklahoma attorney general to lead the Environmental Protection Agency when his administration takes control in January.
“For too long, the Environmental Protection Agency has spent taxpayer dollars on an out-of-control anti-energy agenda that has destroyed millions of jobs, while also undermining our incredible farmers and many other businesses and industries at every turn,” reads Trump’s official statement on the nomination.
Pruitt is a well-established skeptic of anthropogenic climate change theory, having co-authored an op-ed at National Review earlier this year in which he wrote, “Healthy debate is the lifeblood of American democracy, and global warming has inspired one of the major policy debates of our time. That debate is far from settled.”
“Scientists continue to disagree about the degree and extent of global warming and its connection to the actions of mankind,” he added. “That debate should be encouraged — in classrooms, public forums, and the halls of Congress. It should not be silenced with threats of prosecution. Dissent is not a crime.”
Pruitt’s LinkedIn bio states that he is a “a leading advocate against the EPA’s activist agenda.”
Leftists and global warmists are upset at the prospect of Pruitt’s appointment and what it could mean for the future of their agenda, and all mainstream media hands are on deck to smear him, with CNN contributor and vice president of GoFundMe.com, Dan Pfeiffer, going so far as to declare, “At the risk of being dramatic, Scott Pruitt at EPA is an existential threat to the planet.”

“President-elect Donald Trump picked Scott Pruitt, who opposes major clean air rules and doubts climate science, to lead the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,” wrote the Environmental Defense Fund. “He claims, falsely, that the climate ‘debate is far from settled’ and that ‘scientists continue to disagree about the degree and extent of global warming and its connection to the actions of mankind.’”
“A vast majority of scientists, of course, agree that climate change is happening, and that it’s due to human activities.”
Multiple top United Nations officials are on record admitting that policies driven by the global warming agenda are designed with specific intent to effect economic change and redistribute wealth.
“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole,” stated Ottmar Edenhofer, former co-chair of the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. “We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.”
Christiana Figueres, the current Executive Secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, publicly admitted that environmental activists are openly waging war on capitalism itself.
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said at a press conference in 2015. “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”
