Scott Pruitt quotes

We need to provide regulatory certainty to the thousands of American farms that rely on Chlorpyrifos, while still protecting human health and the environment … By reversing the previous Administration's steps to ban one of the most widely used pesticides in the world, we are returning to using sound science in decision-making – rather than predetermined results.feedback

Look, Chris–what we have to keep in mind is that the EPA only possesses the authority that Congress gives it. And the EPA has tried twice to regulate CO₂. As much as we want to see progress on clean air and clean water, with an understanding that we can also grow jobs, we have to do so within the framework that Congress has passed. The tools have to be in the toolbox. The job of administrator is to carry out statutes as passed by this body. In response to the CO₂ issue, the EPA administrator is constrained by statutes.feedback

We've demonstrated through the steps we've taken already, the pre-1994 levels, because of that technology – we can burn coal in clean fashion.feedback

The president's keeping his promise to deal with that overreach, Chris. It doesn't mean that clean air and clear water is not going to be the focus in the future. We're just going to do it right within the consistency of the framework that Congress has passed. There's a warming trend, that climate is changing and human activity contributes to that change in some measure.feedback

To demonstrate the leadership that we have shown on this issue with China and India and other nations is very important and discussions should ensue, but what Paris represents is a bad deal for this country. Human activities contribute to that change in some measure.feedback

The real question is how much are we contributing to that and measuring that with precision.feedback

That's something that we're going to have to talk about as we go forward.feedback

I think what comes next is a much more humble view of what the EPA's response to CO2 is within the Clean Air Act. We're going to focus on clear air, but we're going to do so in a way that's fair and equitable to all forms of energy in this country.feedback

There's a very fair question that needs to be asked and answered. Are the tools in the toolbox? Does the EPA actually have the tools in the toolbox to address this issue?feedback

We're not going to allow regulations here at the EPA to pick winners and losers.feedback

The President is keeping his promise to the American people this week with respect to the Executive Order coming down on Tuesday.feedback

So we've penalized ourselves through lost jobs while China and India didn't take steps to address the issue internationally. So Paris was just a bad deal, in my estimation.feedback

The president is keeping his promise to the American people. With respect to this executive order that's coming out on Tuesday, this is about making sure that we have a pro-growth and pro-environment approach to how we do regulation in this country. For too long, over the last several years, we have accepted a narrative that if you're pro-growth, pro-jobs, you're anti-environment. We have made tremendous progress on our environment. We can be both pro-jobs and pro-environment.feedback

We ought to focus on efficiency, fuel efficiency for cars that people really want to buy. You know, this process of building cars that no one purchases in order to meet these standards that were previously set actually is counter-helpful to the environment, because people don't buy the new cars. They keep older cars. China and India got away, the largest producers of CO2 internationally, got away scot-free. They didn't have to take steps until 2030.feedback

Any time that Leonard asks you to go to dinner, you stay, because he feeds you well. We spent three hours talking about the Constitution and things that we were involved in as attorneys general. It was a fabulous time.feedback

These standards are costly for automakers and the American people.feedback

Measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do.feedback

I would not agree that it's a primary contributor to the global warming that we see. But we don't know that yet. We need to continue the debate and continue the review and the analysis.feedback

Rules "very soon. There's going to be an announcement on that very soon, and I think what's concerning to me and I think concerning to the president is how that process occurred. I think that what has been broken in that process is, one, not a recognition of the great progress that's been made with those standards, but two, those in Detroit, those that are manufacturing autos in this country, expressed to the EPA that they wanted to evaluate the impact of the previous standards. And that was largely disregarded.feedback

This idea that if you're pro-environment you're anti-energy is just something we've got to change so that attitude is something we're working on very much.feedback

But we don't know that yet ... We need to continue the debate and continue the review and the analysis.feedback

So, no, I would not agree that (carbon dioxide) is a primary contributor to the global warming that we see. I do not believe climate change is a hoax.feedback

There are a lot of changes that need to take place at my agency to restore the rule of law and federalism.feedback

In this budget discussion that is ongoing with Congress that is just starting, there are some concerns about some of these grant programs that EPA has been a part of historically. I want you to know that with the White House and also with Congress, I am communicating a message that the brownfields program, the Superfund program and the water infrastructure grants and state revolving funds are essential to protect.feedback

By taking this step, EPA is signaling that we take these concerns seriously and are committed to strengthening our partnership with the states.feedback

I use only my official OAG [office of the attorney general] email address and government-issued phone to conduct official business.feedback

Superfund is an area that is absolutely essential. The brownfields program, as well. It's a tremendous success. I want to hear from you about those successes. I want to be able to share those with the White House. … We need stories. We need illustrations about how important the brownfields program is to creating jobs and the environmental benefits that have been achieved. We know when it goes wrong, it goes wrong badly.feedback

I really believe that public participation and transparency in rulemaking is very important. I think that extends to this matter as well.feedback

I use only my official OAG email address and government issued phone to conduct official business. The 'me' address is not a business email address. I am not sure why it was designated as such.feedback

I think its justified. I think people across this country look at the EPA much like they look at the IRS. I hope to be able to change that.feedback
