EPA Administrator Confirmation Hearing, Part 1 Scott Pruitt testified before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on his nomination to be administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the Trump administration. Mr. Pruitt said he disagrees with the president-elect’s views on climate change stating, “I do not believe climate change is a hoax.” He was also pressed by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) about whether human activity is the primary cause of climate change. Mr. Pruitt responded by saying the issue is subject to more debate and his personal opinion about climate change is immaterial. In addition, he was questioned about the numerous lawsuits he filed against the EPA as attorney general, specifically opposing the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan. close
