SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN TO STAY AWAY FROM ME
HAVING INVITED AN ASSORTMENT OF RELIGIOUS LEADERS TO THE EPA, ADMINISTRATOR SCOTT PRUITT REFUSED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ON CLIMATE POLICY & TOXIC RISKS TO THE UNBORN
EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt hosted a group of religious leaders in his office last week.
There were conditions: There would be no talk about climate change or Pruitt's recent bad press.
On Friday afternoon, Pruitt and several EPA staffers met with nine faith leaders from different religious backgrounds at EPA headquarters to talk about environmental justice issues, according to one attendee.
"We were not allowed to talk about climate; it was not part of it. It was apparently a condition of the meeting," said the Rev. Mitchell Hescox, president and CEO of the Evangelical Environmental Network. "It was a cordial meeting, but I was a little disheartened that he didn't want to talk about climate."
Participants were also warned not to talk about the torrent of negative media coverage Pruitt has received in recent weeks regarding the administrator's spending while in office....
One person asked for a faith-based office in EPA... and Hescox focused on the impact of toxic chemicals on developing fetuses. Hescox said Pruitt's deregulatory actions betrayed anti-abortion values... He requested that the administrator name fetuses as an "at-risk group" under the Toxic Substances Control Act... He left the EPA boss a copy of his book, Caring for Creation: The Evangelical's Guide to Climate Change & a Healthy Environment
