Skip to comments.Trump’s Climate Contrarian: Myron Ebell Takes On the E.P.A.
Posted on 11/11/2016 2:51:30 PM PST by Innovative
The mug-shot posters, pasted on walls and lampposts around Paris by an activist group during the United Nations climate talks last year, were hardly flattering. They depicted Myron Ebell, a climate contrarian, as one of seven climate criminals wanted for destroying our future.
But in his customary mild-mannered way, Mr. Ebell, who directs environmental and energy policy at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a libertarian advocacy group in Washington, brushed it off.
In looking for someone to follow through on his campaign vow to dismantle one of the Obama administrations signature climate change policies, President-elect Donald J. Trump probably could not have found a better candidate for the job than Mr. Ebell.
Mr. Ebell, who revels in taking on the scientific consensus on global warming, will be Mr. Trumps lead agent in choosing personnel and setting the direction of the federal agencies that address climate change and environmental policy more broadly.

I think Trump will carry out his promises.
And Progressives go berserk.
For them, it’s a short trip.
It is a great honor to be a “climate criminal.”
Just eliminate the EPA because it is the most anti-American institution on the planet...in fact, Congress & President Trump should pass a law permitting the President to eliminate any government activity that is anti-American...hhmmmm
Let's call for indictment, prosecution and imprisonment for anyone who spouts the false narrative of man-made climate change.
Multiple offenses will be met with public hangings.
Actually, I really think this move will really scare the Left to death.
I always liked rightwing troublemakers. If this is just a taste of the Trump cabinet, I wouldn’t be surprised how far right the rest of them will be.
Trump has been mugged by this election. Whatever liberal tendencies he had in the past are now gone. He is going for the jugular.
How many weasel words like “criminal” can these losers pack into one article?
Regardess if PC global warming had been proven with the consistent results of repeatable, scientific method-based experiments, it remains that the states have never expressly constitutionally delegated to the feds the specific power to regulate, tax and spend for environmental protection purposes.
Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States. Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
From the accepted doctrine that the United States is a government of delegated powers, it follows that those not expressly granted, or reasonably to be implied from such as are conferred, are reserved to the states, or to the people. To forestall any suggestion to the contrary, the Tenth Amendment was adopted. The same proposition, otherwise stated, is that powers not granted are prohibited [emphasis added]. United States v. Butler, 1936.
In fact, the only thing proven about PC global warming is that it is a surefire excuse to win unconstitutional, unaccountable federal funding from the corrupt feds .
So Trump either has to politically force Congress to surrender state powers that corrupt Congress has stolen to tax and spend for PC global warming purposes back to the states, or lead Congress to successfully petition the states for an environmental protection amendement to the Constitution.
Likewise for unconstitutional Obamacare.
I have to pinch myself, this feels like a dream. The libs are going to go apoplectic on this one, and Trump has not even been sworn in yet.
stand back and watch the pigs at the trough squeal.
And put the current head in jail for the toxic mine spill through five states.
You make it sound like a bad thing. :=)
Tear apart the EPA, burn the buildings, then salt the ground it stood on. Then call the EPA for a permit to...oh never mind!
What has me skeptical about climate change is just how intolerant the scientific and politic powers have been to any kind of dissent, or even debate.
They try to ruin careers of those with opposing views (and are often successful.)
I know a coordinated effort when I see one. I wonder if global warming and now climate change is being used as a blanket excuse for the radical environmentalist to ban everything.
(Hope he has body guards already. Look for Soros financed nutjobs to start attempted assassinations of key Trump people. Hope I’m wrong.)
