Hundreds of former EPA staff have stated that during his tenure in Oklahoma, Pruitt had "shown no interest in enforcing environmental laws." Senator Gardner defends his vote for Pruitt citing the recent injustice of the EPA against plaintiffs in the Gold King Mine spill. He says that he has received assurances that Pruitt ...

(Photo: Gabriella Demczuk / The New York Times) Valerie Branyan is thankful that she and her husband were together with their two children when the 5.3 magnitude earthquake struck the city of Cushing, Oklahoma, early in November. The couple clutched their kids, eyed the ceiling, and waited.

Then, a few days later, residents reported another tremor. And then another, and another. More than 2,350 earthquakes of magnitude 3 or greater rocked Oklahoma between 2010 and 2016, making the state the most seismically active in the U.S., outpacing ...
