The Senate has confirmed former coal industry lobbyist Andrew Wheeler to lead the EPA, which is responsible for ensuring we have clean air and safe drinking water. It was a party-line vote, 52 -47 (one senator was not present?).

I hate being this political about our existential threat (not really!) BUT: I hope the Yutes of Today can see there is a YUGE difference between the parties, and only one of them is thinking about what kind of world they are going to inherit.
