    Senior White House aides are exasperated with Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt, the already embattled Cabinet secretary who now finds himself at the center of an expanding controversy over his decision to rent a room in Washington, DC, from the family of an energy lobbyist.

    Pruitt rented a room in a condo from Vicki and Steven Hart, lobbyists whose firm has lobbied the EPA on behalf of an Oklahoma Energy company, ABC News and Bloomberg reported. According to Bloomberg, Pruitt leased a room for around $50 a night, only paying when he stayed there. In total, Pruitt paid $6,100 for the room over six months, a rate significantly lower than market value.

    If this is true, it is a case of corruption and essentially bribing in my book...

    The subpoena demanded that EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy hand over data from two decades-old taxpayer-funded studies as the agency moves towards the adoption of strict new ozone standards that could cost the U.S. economy $90 billion annually – which would make them the most expensive regulations in U.S. history.

    The federal government’s chief climate research agency is refusing to give House Republicans the detailed information they want on a controversial study on climate change.
    Citing confidentiality concerns and the integrity of the scientific process, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said it won’t give Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) the research documents he subpoenaed.

    A congressional committee blasted the Environmental Protection Agency today for blocking release of documents related to the Gold King mine disaster, which poured deadly chemicals into the largest source of drinking water in the West.

    Actually, this is the opposite. The truth is uncaged, and after decades of Junk Science being propped up by a hopelessly corrupt bureaucracy , the last leg that the Global Whining gang had to stand on is going away.
    Far away.

    Ahh... and notice how the Stalinists can't debate the issue, but have to side-step to some other thing that attempts to make use of the meme that all Capitalists are evil be association?

    How pathetic!

    Change the subject and prove you have no argument, ain't dat right homie?

    ohh yes,


    Just yesterday I read an article about the whistle blower who was fired for revealing th secret meeting between Perry and a CEO of the coal industry with generous donations to the Trump campaign. He even managed to post photos of the papers Perry got in which there were written about how the administration should move forward

    It is almost like they are ready to make love...


    and here is a link the paper with the "orders"emmmm... "Action Plan"

    Of course, all this happened behind the public's back. Perry decided that it was not important to reveal to the public the meeting and its contents. So when the details of the meeting were revealed, he chose to fire the whistleblower. Transparency at work...

    the EPA gets a major reform

    EPA’s Pruitt: Agency will no long use junk ‘secret science’ to push climate change hoax

    Pruitt will reverse long-standing EPA policy allowing regulators to rely on non-public scientific data in crafting rules. Such studies have been used to justify tens of billions of dollars worth of regulations.

    EPA regulators would only be allowed to consider scientific studies that make their data available for public scrutiny under Pruitt’s new policy. Also, EPA-funded studies would need to make all their data public.

    Its about time, eh?

    Oh, I can hear it already; "You should be shut down! The masses are asses and you ain't smart enough or have the right to know what the elite knows about what we are trying to force them to do!!!"

    Guess again, comrades.
