Jerry Taylor at the Niskanen Center blog argues "The Case for (or Against) Scott Pruitt"

Or at least, that's what it says in the headline and lede; he actually has very little to say about Pruitt himself. Instead, he blames Al Gore and Naomi Klein for spooking conservatives into denying climate change with talk of changing "the very foundation of our civilization" and ending capitalism. He continues by advocating a carbon tax as "the ideal policy response" and argues that a Republican-controlled government is perfectly placed to implement it. I can't help but wonder how he still has any faith in Republicans to do the rational thing.
