While the Trump administration has struggled in many areas, one positive development is in environmental policy, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere said this week on “Pat & Stu.”
Earlier this summer, President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Agreement, an international accord that aimed to reduce global emissions of greenhouse gases. Conservative critics said the agreement accomplished very little while placing the biggest financial and regulatory burdens on the U.S.
Scott Pruitt, head of the Environmental Protection Agency, has been rolling back Obama-era regulations and has faced an inane backlash over his criticism of the EPA – even though that’s exactly what you would expect from an EPA chief directed to shrink the size of government.
If you think a government agency should have less power, obviously you bring in a leader who agrees, Stu pointed out.
“Of course, you would bring him in if he was disagreeing with how they used to do things there,” Stu said. “That is the most asinine criticism of somebody.”
