Trump on Track to Shed Almost 50% of EPA Staff by End of First Term

A good start, as one might say about lawyers.

The Environmental Protection Agency, seen by President Trump as a bloated bureaucratic whale, is on schedule to fulfill his promise to reduce its staff nearly in half by the end of his first term mostly through retirements, not cuts, according to officials.

The EPA Tuesday provided to Secrets its first year staff results which show that the agency is below levels not seen since former President Reaganís administration.


And if just those slated to retire by early 2021 leave, Administrator Scott Pruitt and his team will have reduced a staff of nearly 15,000, to below 8,000, or a reduction of 47 percent.

Related: Climate "scientists" predicted this winter would be warmer than average and that the polar bear population would be decimated.

Instead, the winter is colder than average and polar bear populations are thriving.

Oh well -- climate science is not an exact science. Or even just a science.

It's new age Gaiaism with some graphs.
