Baltimore Sun: Climate hot enough for you? Not for Scott Pruitt

The following editorial appeared in the Baltimore Sun: One might be tempted to assume that having Scott Pruitt – a devout climate change denier who, as head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is to public health what medieval rats were to, well, public health – admit that humans have influenced the planet’s climate would be a good thing. Not so fast.
