Honey, Go to the gas station and fill up a gallon or two; Here's $5... Let's stop pretending. We All KNOW the game plan, as fossil fuels diminish, is to use the existing gas station infrastructure model to switch from pumping gas to pumping potable water at $1+/gallon (to start). These predatory companies are not fools and have seen the writing for decades. The object of the game is to buy up our Water resources and then pollute those we already collectively own.
Donald Trump's well known negotiating tactic is to start at an outrageous position and proceed from there. The plausibility or fairness of the position is irrelevant, only a means to an end. I believe that this type of thinking is involved in the latest unsubstantiated claim by the White House about massive voter fraud in the recent election.

Scott Pruitt / EPA; please God, NO!
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), and Environmental Illness (EI) for everyone...
MCS and EI are serious conditions which are life-ruining for many, and which exist sub-clinically for everyone.

Scott Pruitt; please God, NO!
tRUMP, what to call him
I vote for ‘Biff’, the name of the low-life bully from ‘Back to the Future’ fame, most especially, I guess, from Back to the Future Part II.
