"U.S. EPA employees are abuzz today about President-elect Donald Trump's choice to be their new boss, and many of them are wary.
"Everybody's talking about it," one EPA employee told E&E News this morning. "People are worried, I would say very worried. It doesn't bode well."
That employee and others spoke to E&E News on the condition of anonymity after the Trump transition team announced officially this morning that Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt will be the nominee to lead EPA. The Republican, who has been among those leading lawsuits to topple the Obama administration's signature climate and water regulations, won out among several contenders for the EPA job."
