After the last few days of confirmation hearings, I’m wondering if something’s in the water, or in the environment anyway. Anyone else think it’s odd that climate change deniers Scott Pruitt, Ryan Zinke, and Rick Perry have all changed course on their total skepticism about anthropogenic global warming?
One can hope that it’s because they’re listening to scientists on this issue. But I fear other forces may have contributed to these reversals. I suppose we’ll find out when we see what policies are put into place by the agencies they’ve been nominated to head, and, ultimately, who those policies favor.
