Pruitt Denying Science (again)
In recently uncovered radio interviews from 2005, current Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt stated that he believes evolution—a basic foundation of modern science—is an unproven theory, according to a report from Politico.

“There aren’t sufficient scientific facts to establish the theory of evolution,” said then-Oklahoma state Senator Pruitt.

These interviews bring further attention to Pruitt at a time when he is already under public scrutiny for misuse of taxpayer dollars, including over $100,000 in first-class airfare and a $25,000 soundproof phone booth in his office.

In his one-year tenure as EPA Administrator, Pruitt has undermined scientific research at the agency and systematically worked to destroy as many environmental safeguards as possible, including basic rules to protect children's health.
