Pruitt Doesn't Know Carbon Dioxide Causes Climate Change!

Scott Pruitt is turning the EPA into a propaganda arm of the fossil fuel industry.

He's already staffed the agency with climate change deniers - and now he's started repeating Big Oil's lies live on television.

Yesterday, for example, he told CNBC that he doesn't believe that carbon dioxide causes climate change.

"Human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do and there's tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact, so no, I would not agree that it's a primary contributor to the global warming that we see."

This is exactly what Henry Wallace was talking about in 1944 when he wrote an editorial in the New York Times about American Fascists. He described these American fascists as people who are

"... spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest... [whose] final objective toward which all their deceit is directed is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection."

Isn't that exactly what we're seeing here with the Trump administration, in particular the EPA?
