EPA head Pruitt: 2009 greenhouse gas declaration involved ‘breach of process.’

December 28, 2017

On December 7, 2017 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt said the Obama administration erred when it formally declared greenhouse gases a dangerous pollutant worthy of regulations in 2009 according to a December 7, 2017 report from The Hill.

Pruitt said former President Barack Obama’s EPA engaged in a “breach of process” when it relied on United Nations science for part of its endangerment funding for climate change-causing greenhouse gases. “There was breach of process that occurred in 2009 that many believe wasn’t handled the proper way,” Pruitt told a House Energy and Commerce Committee subpanel.

“But the Mass. v EPA decision, and the processes that followed involved both the Bush and Obama administration and that process, in 2009, I think, was short-shrifted.”

The Supreme Court’s Massachusetts v. EPA decision in 2007 determined that federal law had not declared greenhouse gases as dangerous enough to warrant regulations, and it directed the EPA to formally consider make such a conclusion.

Bush administration regulators put together a version of that endangerment finding, though it never took effect. Obama’s EPA concluded in April 2009 that greenhouse gases pose a threat to human health, opening the door to future regulations.

That endangerment finding is at the heart of EPA rules like the Clean Power Plan, the Obama-era regulation designed to slash pollution from power plants.

But even as Pruitt has tried to undo much of the Obama administration’s climate change agenda — including the power plant rule — he has not committed to revisiting or repealing the endangerment finding. Pruitt also said he intends to announce his red team/blue team debate over climate science early next year.

Pruitt detailed plans this summer to conduct an internal debate over the validity of the scientific consensus behind climate change, which both he and President Trump have publicly doubted.

“That would be a process that would be focused on objective, transparent, real-time review of questions of answers around this issue of CO2.”
