Scott Pruitt, the new EPA chief and longtime critic of the EPA has got one heck of a challenge in front of him. The agency he now leads doesn’t like him and will probably seek to undermine him as it can. But we suspect Mr. Pruitt anticipated this.

When likely EPA Secretary Scott Pruitt walks into his first day at the office, “He’ll have 16,000 employees working against him,” Sen. James Lankford told a large gathering of libertarian donors Saturday evening.
“And I expect a flood of lawsuits over everything he does.”
Pruitt, who has been nominated to lead the EPA by President Donald Trump, is the attorney general of Lankford’s state, Oklahoma. He has faced fierce opposition from the environmentalist left.
