Trump picks Climate Change denier to head EPA transition team

They don’t come much worse than Myron Ebell:

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.

Ebell’s views appear to square with Trump’s when it comes to EPA’s agenda. Trump has called global warming “bullshit” and he has said he would “cancel” the Paris global warming accord and roll back President Obama’s executive actions on climate change (ClimateWire, May 27).

And so it begins. We’ve never been much for fluffy bunny stories here at BlueNC, but as we move forward (if we move forward), this diary is likely a harbinger of many more reckless and feckless moves by our new President. That being said, if Roy Cooper can hang on to his lead over DAG McCrory, the NC DEQ will be in much more capable hands.
