EPA Chief Scott Pruitt is getting more heat than a frying pan from almost every sector of our society, partly because he is apparently elusive and not particularly transparent. Environmentalists, clean water advocates and now farmers are crying out.

Here is an email I got from Zachary Cikanek with Fuels America.

Energy & Ag Pundits:

In case you missed it, EPA Chief Scott Pruitt is getting a “frosty” reception from farm communities in Kansas on Tuesday, South Dakota on Wednesday, and may stop by Nebraska Thursday.

 

The South Dakota Corn Growers Association is planning a tractor rally in Sioux Falls to protest his visit Wednesday (advisory below), and Growth Energy released “Top Five Answers Scott Pruitt Owes Farmers & Biofuel Workers.” ? ?No webcast yet, but it sounds like this will be covered by several local broadcasters, so we’ll keep an eye out for any live feeds and post via twitter.

If you are wondering where the official EPA travel plans are listed, you aren’t alone. ? ?Here’s a quote from Doug Sombke, president of South Dakota Farmers Union: “Pruitt’s travel schedule is as secretive as his refinery handouts -- he’s hiding from unhappy farmers, hiding from the press, and hiding from accountability.”
