Scott Pruitt, here’s evidence backing your global-warming statement
EPA Director Scott Pruitt
The Heartland Institute, which promotes free-market solutions to social and economic problems, is offering to help Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt respond to a federal judge’s order to substantiate his stance on global warming.
Pruitt, shortly after his appointment, responded to a question by contending “carbon dioxide created by human activity is not the primary driver of global climate change.”
Members of the Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility jumped on the statement, demanding evidence.
ArsTechnica reported Judge Beryl Howell now has ordered Pruitt to provide the documentation.
We’ll help, chimed in Heartland.
On Thursday, they shipped copies of their extensive “Climate Change Reconsidered” series of reports to Pruitt, totaling more than 3,000 pages.
A letter accompanying reports, which contain some 10,000 footnotes, explained the evidence could be used to respond to the judge’s demand.
Heartland’s president, former congressman Tim Huelskamp, explained to Pruitt:
“We have no doubt that PEER, with the assistance of the judge, is trying to box you in and embarrass you. After all, you were only on the job for a few days and you could not possibly have reviewed all the documents EPA possessed before your confirmation – which would all toe the unscientific, alarmist dogma that marked the Obama years. Fortunately, you do not have to look far to find ‘documents that support the conclusion that human activity is not the largest factor driving global climate change.'”
The institute previously submitted the “Climate Change Reconsidered” series to the agency, including digital versions when EPA has called for comments on rulemaking.

The years-long scholarship project is by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, led by prominent climate scientist S. Fred Singer. The Heartland Institute publishes and distributes NIPCC’s work.
The institute told Pruitt: “In the event an Obama-era ideologue at EPA disposed of or destroyed those volumes, we have enclosed them in this package for your use in answering Judge Howell’s order. In fact, the ‘Climate Change Reconsidered’ series stands on its own as the work of a ‘Red Team’ that has been working to critique and correct the work of the ideological alarmists on the ‘Blue Team’ for more than a decade.”
The research has, among other things:
It also provides evidence that there has been no significant increase in either the frequency or intensity of storms of any kind in the modern era.
The report points out that more CO2 in the atmosphere actually is a benefit and contends the claim of a “97 percent scientific consensus” on man-made global warming is “methodologically flawed and often deliberately misleading.”
