Ever Heard Of Myron Ebell? You Probably Will.

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Campaign sources say Donald Trump has chosen Myron Ebell, the director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute and well known AGW skeptic, to head his EPA transition team.

My, my … talk about poking the progressive bear. I like it!

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.” Trump Picks Top Climate Skeptic to Lead EPA Transition

I surely do hope that this means that Trump intends to blow apart the myth of AGW such that the “climate movement” looks like Yucca Flats after the bomb. If so, it sure looks like he has picked the right man for the job.

Ebell appears to relish criticism from the left.

In a biography submitted when he testified before Congress, he listed among his recognitions that he had been featured in a Greenpeace “Field Guide to Climate Criminals,” dubbed a “misleader” on global warming by Rolling Stone and was the subject of a motion to censure in the British House of Commons after Ebell criticized the United Kingdom’s chief scientific adviser for his views on global warming.

More recently, Ebell has called the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan for greenhouse gases illegal and said that Obama joining the Paris climate treaty “is clearly an unconstitutional usurpation of the Senate’s authority.”

I hope the Republics are seriously considering lifting the filibuster rule in the Senate to help the Trump agenda along … just like Harry Reid did to facilitate obama appointments and agenda. And deep sixing the Paris climate “treaty” would be a grand first step.WashingtonPost. Because, you know, elections have consequences.
