April Environment & Climate News: Pruitt Appointment Signals Big Changes at EPA

The April issue of Environment & Climate News contemplates what's next for U.S. environmental policy now that Scott Pruitt has been sworn in as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. President Donald Trump said the agency 'has spent taxpayer dollars on an out-of-control anti-energy agenda that has destroyed millions of jobs, 'noting Pruitt' will reverse this trend and restore the EPA's essential mission of keeping our air and our water clean and safe.'
Also in this issue:
  • A whistleblower at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported leading NOAA climate scientist Tom Karl violated the agency's rules by rushing to publish untested and unconfirmed data.
  • A new report argues Congress should reform the National Flood Insurance Program. Current policies encourage people to rebuild homes repeatedly in flood-prone areas.

The full text of the issue is available online in Adobe Acrobat's PDF format: April 2017 Environment & Climate News.
