EPA Makes ‘Climate Change’ Vanish From Four-Year Report
What doesn’t appear in the agency’s strategic plan for 2018 through 2022 is any mention of the words climate change or the causes behind it, including carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas emissions.
Under the Obama administration’s EPA, “Addressing Climate Change and Improving Air Quality” was the first of five goals in the four-year strategic plan. That 80-page document, developed in 2014 under administrator Gina McCarthy, referenced “climate change” more than 40 times.
Pruitt has acknowledged that climate change is occurring, but has questioned the extent to which it is caused by human activities and the authority of his agency to regulate it.
