spin In Myron Ebell, Evil Arch Climate Uber Villain I touched on his wiki entry which is as of now rather better. Naturally, I’d like to claim to have been the impetus for all that but I rather doubt it.

More interestingly, someone tried to supply my “{{cn}}” for “In 2001, Ebell stated his belief that global warming is a hoax perpetrated by the [[European Union]] and the rest of the world to harm America’s economy”, although in the process they felt obliged to change it to “Ebell has stated his belief that global warming is a hoax”. The proposed cite is Trump Relies on Washington Insiders to Build Administration.
