That move rattled the right cages.
Ebell realizes global cooling/global warming/climate change is just a socialist trick to expand government control.
We know carbon dioxide poses no threat because if it did, global cooling/global warming/climate change would be holding their conferences online instead of jetting around the world to tell the rest of us to surrender our air conditioners.
Scientific American (which increasingly is neither) panicked:
Ebell is a well-known and polarizing figure in the energy and environment realm. His participation in the EPA transition signals that the Trump team is looking to drastically reshape the climate policies the agency has pursued under the Obama administration. Ebell’s role is likely to infuriate environmentalists and Democrats but buoy critics of Obama’s climate rules.
Ebell, who was dubbed an “elegant nerd” and a “policy wonk” by Vanity Fair, is known for his prolific writings that question what he calls climate change “alarmism.” He appears frequently in the media and before Congress. He’s also chairman of the Cooler Heads Coalition, a group of nonprofits that “question global warming alarmism and oppose energy-rationing policies.”
Ebell appears to relish criticism from the left.If so, Slate's hate shall nourish him:
While I know in my brain that “transition team” means “transition until Trump is president,” I cannot help but read this as "transition until we get rid of (or neuter) the EPA." Trump has made it clear that he has no use for environmental regulation during his run.Let states have regulating environmental protection back. Bigger isn't better. If it were, the Animas River would never have turned orange.
Politics USA is blubbering about the choice of Ebell: "Let me repeat: the guy running Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency transition team thinks climate change isn’t anything worth sweating over."
Oh no. There goes billions in grant money to study this farce.
It also makes sense that Donald Trump would be drawn to someone like Myron Ebell because they both believe that global warming is not a serious threat that should be dealt with in any way. However, Trump goes further with his assessment, saying that the entire thing is a hoax perpetrated by China.Ya think?
President Trump is already off to a good start.
"Trump the Press" skewers media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. I use my deadliest weapon: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
The sequel is coming.
