What It Was Like Inside The EPA When Scott Pruitt Resigned (HBO)

Self-inflicted scandals aside, Scott Pruitt earned praise from conservatives for his effectiveness at implementing a deregulatory agenda at the EPA. But there was another thing he was really good at: stopping the flow of information out of the agency.

In the early days of Trump’s presidency, agency employees were barred from posting on agency social-media accounts or agency blogs, and weren’t allowed to speak to the press. Later, under Pruitt, three EPA scientists were prevented from talking about their research at a conference.

We Spent The Day With Arnold Schwarzenegger At His Climate Summit In Austria (HBO)

Arnold Schwarzenegger thinks Scott Pruitt is the worst U.S. environmental protection agency administrator there’s ever been — and he’s using his celebrity to make sure the world doesn’t follow Pruitt’s lead.

“He’s doing the bidding for the oil companies and the coal companies.“ Schwarzenegger told VICE News at the R20 Austrian World Summit, a climate event he hosts every year in his native country. “I pay no attention to what he says. He can not be taken seriously. He’s the worst Environmental secretary that we have ever had.”

The 70-year-old made the trip to Vienna despite having open-heart surgery in late March to replace a valve. Schwarzenegger’s message was focused on urging President Trump to join other nations in the world in fighting climate change. But he has no such olive branch for Scott Pruitt.

That’s because California is leading 17 states in suing the EPA over plans to rollback vehicle emissions standards set during the Obama administration. And a decade ago, Schwarzenegger launched a similar legal action while serving as governor.

VICE News tagged along with Schwarzenegger at this years event, where he was joined by Austria’s chancellor Sebastian Kurz, the leaders of Norway and Denmark, and UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.
