On his way out, Scott Pruitt offered one more giant f**k you to the world. These trucks are literally about as polluting as you can get – 55 times that of today’s trucks. And there’s no reason for using them except to exploit a loophole that Obama had ended and now Pruitt vastly expanded. Fun fact: one of the main manufacturers of these super polluting vehicles (that are estimated to prematurely end hundreds of lives due to their nitrogen oxide emissions) hosted a campaign event for Donald Trump in 2016. “Our goose was cooked until President Trump and Pruitt came to town,” the CEO once said.
Pruitt secured a loophole for dirty glider trucks after he announced his resignation.
