President Trump's likely EPA pick has lefties fuming

Trump picked Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute, to head his transition team at the EPA.

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.


  1. Good Lord! I have not stopped smiling since about 2am Wednesday morning. My face is beginning to hurt. And then Don posts this! Carbon dioxide is plant fertilizer, not a pollutant.

    Neuter and then shut down the EPA. Then the Departments of Energy, Commerce and Education for a start.

    The louder the screeching from the Acela corridor, the better America will like it.

    I’ve never visited Mordor on the Potomac and never been to inauguration, but I might make an exception for this one.

  2. I could just fall on my knees and give thanks to heaven. Maybe Trump means what he promised.

  3. Did ANY of you think DJT was not gonna roll like this? Buy some earplugs if you didn't. Me, I'm gonna just laugh loudly as I hear the screams from horrified Libs. Music to my ears, y'all.

  4. James Watt only smarter.

  5. Hearing liberals squeal tells you Trump made a good choice.

  6. If I had known he was going to this I would have voted for him in the primary

  7. China? CHINA? Michael Mann ain't Chinese. The University of East Anglia ain't, neither!
    Roll, Donald, ROLL. Maybe Caterpillar will make a Donald Trump Signature D-10 (or whatever).

  8. On Monday, the 23rd of January, which is the first working day after inauguration, it would be savory if the employees at EPA, Interior, and ATF all showed up to work to find the doors chained shut! Inside, there would be agents securing hard drives. Back at home, these government employees would find in their mail either pink slips, or indictments.

    Keep dreaming, fellow Americans. Let the Swamp Draining begin.

  9. 'Maybe Caterpillar will make a Donald Trump Signature D-10 '

    Too funny Sam!

  10. Coal or nuclear, Leftards, take your pick.

    But logging of the old-growth wind-farms starts tomorrow.

  11. A lot of his picks are going to have the same effect.

    1. I know, right?! To paraphrase Dr. Seuss:

      He meant what he said
      And he said what he meant
      DJT is faithful
      One hundred percent

  13. Don, it's been a while, thought you were a tad nuts supporting Trump. I didn't vote for him in the primaries, but encourage all I knew to vote for him in the general.

    This is music to my ears.

    Hopefully Trump signs bills killing off HUD, CPB ( Romney hated the welfare millionaraire Big Bird, right?), NEA/NEH, TSA and more.

    One a week, so the media can't catch their breath.

  14. May we live in interesting times. This once it may be a good thing.

  15. If it rattles the left, then Donald Trump must be doing the right thing.

  16. We know AGW is a fraud because its central premise has been conclusively disproven by actual events.

    The theory postulates that rising CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere is a major leading cause of global warming.

    CO2 concentrations have actually increased exponentially over the past 30 years. If the theory was correct, global temperatures would have mirrored that increase, with a slight delay. What actually happened? Global temperatures have, in fact, DECREASED at a rate of -0.5 degrees per century over the same period.

    Therefore, actual effect of CO2 is either 0 or so small that no one has ever been able to measure it.

    Want to stump a warmist? Ask them for the scientific proof of the CO2 effect that all of their models assume. There is none. They'll bluster, "yes, its proven", ok, what is it, exactly? Show me the proof - there is none.

    1. CO2 is plant food, as someone else here has noted, and is promoting growth of forests, grasslands, and record agricultural yields. As far as its effects on climate, it is present only in teeny tiny amounts and its heat-trapping properties are real, but pretty wimpy. There is little correlation between CO2 atmos. concentrations and avg global temperature over the millenia and according to proxy data. All other things being equal, increasing C)2 'might' increase global temps, but not much and most things are not equal; the climate system is too huge and complex and dynamic and w too many variables for CO2 levels to be a concern. Dummies!

  17. Environmental activists are like watermelons: green on the outside but red (communist) on the inside. Follow the money and see who funds these jerks. It is enlightening. - Elric

  18. Ebell is a good goddam start! EPA currently is cranking out last minute assaults on capitalism right now. I hope Ebell and Trump have some big erasers ready!

  19. I'm old enough to remember the black streak down the center of the highway from road tubes venting oil from the crankcase. I remember the Mississippi tasting like oil (now it tastes like mud, because it it) I remember a yellow dome of kerosene over the airport. And a grey/brown pall on the horizon when viewed from a plane. Improving the environment was beneficial. What Trump has to do is weed out the fanatics and anti-humans and make the EPA work for the US, not against it.
