We all dreamed about this day, but now that Scott Pruitt has resigned as the head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is it really what we want? As Scott Pruitt leaves office, Andrew Wheeler replaces him. Unfortunately, they are the same person in terms of beliefs (climate change deniers) and supporting fossil fuels. 

It comes down to the fact that Scott Pruitt did not resign due to bad policies as everyone, including the President, made comments as to how great of a job Scott did while in office. Pruitt is leaving because his scandals caught up to him and he could not handle the pressure from the media and public. 

Andrew Wheeler used to work for a coal lobby group. The same lobby group that allegedly wrote the new policies for Scott Pruitt to implement. 

So out with the old and in with the, um...old!!!
