A demoralized workforce watching as its agency is dismantled by the very people charged to lead it: That is the grim state of affairs depicted by John J. Oâ€™Grady, a longtime employeeÂ in the Chicago field office of the Environmental Protection Agency, which is tasked with protecting the nationâ€™s air and water, while preventing the exposure of citizens to harmful chemicals. The agency is doing none of that, in Oâ€™Gradyâ€™s telling, with career officials watching in dismay as EPA administrator Scott Pruitt seemingly lurches from one scandal to another while doing the bidding of oil barons and the chemical lobby. â€œMorale is not good,â€� Oâ€™Grady said of the agencyâ€™s 14,000 employees.
