PBS MUST Watch: This Was a Hostile Takeover: How the War on the EPA Was Waged

John Walke, NRDC’s ace clean air attorney and Duke University alum, is in it taking them to task..

Yesterday, the Trump administration took its first formal step towards repealing the Clean Power Plan — President Obama’s signature domestic effort in the fight against climate change, aimed at cutting emissions from fossil fuels that scientists agree are contributing to global warming.

To anyone following Trump’s campaign-trail vow to end what he described as “the war on coal,” the move shouldn’t have come as a surprise.

Tonight’s new FRONTLINE documentary, War on the EPA, tells the inside story of how this and other environmental policy rollbacks happened; how Scott Pruitt went from suing the Environmental Protection Agency 14 times, to now running it; and how the anti-regulatory and anti-climate change science movements in America reached this moment of triumph.

. . .

“In working for both Bushes and for Clinton and Obama, I can say that no previous administration has done what the Trump administration is doing at EPA now,” Southerland says in the above excerpt. “There is a clear and present danger to public health and safety in this country.”

War on the EPA premieres Wednesday, October 11 at 10 p.m. EST/9 p.m. CST on PBS stations (check local listings) and online at pbs.org/frontline.
