“This was a hostile takeover”: How the war on the EPA was waged

WASHINGTON, DC — “With access to key players involved in the issue, War on the EPA tells the story of how combatting perceived federal overreach by the EPA became a popular conservative cause.

It unpacks the events that led to the Trump administration’s withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement, and ultimately, to this week’s action on the Clean Power Plan. It’s a gripping, must-watch exploration of how we reached this point.

‘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.'”
