Regarding the Feb. 23 news article "Emails detail EPA head's close ties to fossil fuel industry":
The EPA has stood as a fair arbiter for stopping chemical pollution of rivers, lakes and air; keeping toxic chemicals out of drinking water; and blocking destruction of the ozone layer, while industry said these actions would cost jobs and competitiveness. Mr. Pruitt will enable irreversible fossil fuel pollution of our atmosphere.
When politicians ignore scientific facts, the facts always prevail.
