Newsweek April 11, 2019 excerpt:


hile serving as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Scott Pruitt was gifted multiple copies of Global Warming for Dummies and a number of climate denial texts, according to information obtained by a transparency organization….

These gifts were disclosed following a request from public accountability advocacy group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). ...

Experts from Stanford University said that Pruitt was given at least eight books that are “clearly climate science denial.” The administrator rejected four of these gifts but accepted four. Of those, he donated one of the books, but kept three for himself. 

The three texts that the list said were accepted and “returned to Administrator Pruitt” were Warming? Yes! Man Made? No!​, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change by Marc Morano​ and The Climate Chronicles.

From CREW’s report:

Morano & Pruitt at EPA HQ – April 24, 2018

The EPA did not immediately respond when contacted by Newsweek. 

The former Attorney General of Oklahoma — who in that role repeatedly sued the EPA to challenge anti-pollution regulations — also denied climate science. “We know humans have most flourished during times of warming trends. There are assumptions made that because the climate is warming that necessarily is a bad thing,” he said. “It’s fairly arrogant for us to think we know exactly what it should be in 2100.” … Andrew Wheeler, a former lobbyist for the energy and coal industries, replaced Pruitt.
