Trump’s top candidate to lead the EPA is a complete disaster. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“Donald Trump has picked Myron Ebell to lead the transition at the Environmental Protection Agency, an organization whose mission is to “protect human health and the environment.”
Ebell will play a pivotal role in choosing EPA personnel and help shape the future of government agencies that address climate and environmental policy.
But here’s the rub: The 63-year-old is no environmental steward. A noted climate contrarian, he’s spent decades trying to dispel what he calls the “myths of global warming,” defending the use of fossil fuels and shutting down any climate policy that would diminish dependence on them. And he’s expressed great pride at being one of world’s most reviled “climate criminals.”
By Tuesday morning, more than 88,000 people had signed a White House petition calling for Ebell to be ousted from his role as Trump’s EPA advisor. “Do not let a man who denies science in the name of profit lead the nation in environmental protection,” the petition reads.”
