Corbett Nominates Another Climate Denier to DEP

:“I’ve not read any scientific studies that would lead me to conclude there are adverse impacts to human beings, animals, or plant life at this small level of climate change,” Abruzzo said.

Abruzzo told the committee he does believe climate change is occurring and that it seems to be at least partially attributable to human factors, but he does not view it as harmful and sees no reason for Pennsylvania to adopt new policies to address it.

Abruzzo would be the second Corbett DEP head to put his political allegiance the Republican Party’s climate denial position ahead of his moral obligation to his state, his country, and the human race at-large.

    It’s just as ridiculous that he’s putting someone with the background of working in the AG’s office as a prosecutor into this position. The contempt from Corbett towards the environment is sickening. Corbett’s Energy Executive commented on State Impact PA’s story on this by bringing up the tired old “Dr. Mann was discredited” talking point.

  3. Over 5000 people have signed a petition I started on Wednesday calling for the senate to vote NO to Abruzzo. Today, we’re asking people to call, email, and tweet senators with that same message. #backwardonclimate
