Trump’s New EPA Secretary Has Been Confirmed, Employees Vow To Defy Him Until The End

Uh oh…

The EPA’s employees have been reportedly (like the rest of the nation’s snowflakes) slipping into a deep depression, and even some Energy Department staffers were offered counseling since Trump was announced President.

Unfortunately for them, their entire WORLD is about to start crashing down as The Senate confirmed Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency, despite opposition from Democrats that the former Oklahoma state Attorney General had not sufficiently answered all concerns about his qualifications.

“People are upset. Some people took the day off because they were depressed,” said John O’Grady, president of American Federation of Government Employees Council 238, a union that represents thousands of EPA employees. After Election Day, “people were crying,” added O’Grady, who works in EPA’s Region 5 office in Chicago. “They were recommending that people take sick leave and go home.”

Employees of the Environmental Protection Agency have been calling their senators to urge them to vote on Friday against the confirmation of Scott Pruitt, President Donald Trump’s contentious nominee to run the agency, a remarkable display of activism and defiance that presages turbulent times ahead for the EPA.

Many of the scientists, environmental lawyers and policy experts who work in EPA offices around the country say the calls are a last resort for workers who fear a nominee selected to run an agency he has made a career out of fighting — by a president who has vowed to “get rid of” it.

“Mr. Pruitt’s background speaks for itself, and it comes on top of what the president wants to do to EPA,” said John O’Grady, a biochemist at the agency since the first Bush administration and president of the union representing the EPA’s 15,000 employees nationwide.
