Many people believe that man-made global warming is a conspiracy pushed by liberals to grow the size of government and control our lives.
Donald Trump understands this and rejects it completely. Now Trump has made his first appointment of his administration.
Myron Ebell, a scholar and Director of Global Warming and International Environmental Policy at the COmpetitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), is now leading Trump’s transition team on environmental issues. Ebell has been a big thorn in the Obama administration’s side when it comes to their environmental regulations and green energy policies.
Billions have been spent on climate change, but that may end very soon.
Here is how the Cleveland Plain Dealer lamented the historic appointment of Ebell:
One clue, aside from Trump’s campaign speeches, is that Myron Ebell, director of global warming and international environmental policy at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, is heading up environmental issues on Trump’s transition team. Ebell is a leading skeptic on the role of emissions in climate change.
“I think it is virtually certain that the Clean Power Plan will be revoked. The only question is how,” said Jeffrey Holmstead, former EPA administrator, now a private lawyer and partner at Bracewell LLP.
“Exactly how they do it will depend on what happens in the court case. And will they be able to do it in a way that will withstand legal scrutiny,” he said during the press conference today.
If the court throws out the plan, then the new administration will most likely not appeal it, he said, effectively ending it.
You can just imagine the resignations happening at Obama’s EPA right now.
There is no world leader who has been as outspoken about global warming as Trump has:
The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.
