Pruitt has long been an outspoken critic of President Obama’s EPA, and even sued the agency over its water regulations as well as its controversial climate change regulations imposed on power plants, Politico reports. Pruitt has also questioned “the degree and extent of global warming and its connection to the actions of mankind,” having called the “debate … far from settled.” Jeva Lange
