    Environmental Protection Agency Head Scott Pruitt has managed to undo, delay or block more than 30 environmental rules in his four months in charge, the largest regulatory rollback in the agency’s 47-year history. Please, preserve our waterways, national parks, and the air we breathe. Businesses who are known polluters would rather pay delayed and court-negotiated Federal fines (only after they're investigated, documented, indicted, and the environmental damage is already done) than do the right thing. Often it's more cost-effective to pay a fine than invest in the infrastructure needed to avoid a pollutant being released or a landscape destroyed. The poorest among us always seem to be adversely affected. Scott Pruitt has historically acted in the best interest of the fossil fuel industry at the expense of his own constituents (Oklahoma and the USA). His nomination was a joke, his actions are a shame, and his ideology is atrocious. Ideological differences aside - everyone deserves clean air and water. Mr. Pruitt is not the man to preserve those inalienable rights for Americans.
