Just as Hillary Clinton promised to put coal miners out of jobs, Donald Trump promised the exact opposite. Trump promised to scrap Obama’s Clean Power Plan and reduce regulations on oil, gas and coal. In other words, Trump promised increased growth in a bleak and dismal industry and a complete energy independent United States.
Looks like Trump’s keeping to his promise as he appointed a top climate-change denier Myron Ebell, to lead the EPA transition team. You can bet that Myron will drastically change the agencies policies left in place by President Obama and the gobal warming nutjobs.
Ebell is the Director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute. Ebell has criticized the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan as agressive regulation that hinders the US economy.
Ebell is also the chairman of the Cooler Heads Coalition, more than two dozen nonprofit groups “that question global warming alarmism and oppose energy rationing policies,” according to the coalition’s website. Those positions line up nicely with Trump’s goals, which include “saving” the coal industry, reviving the Keystone XL oil pipeline and expanding offshore oil drilling.
President-elect Donald Trump has called global warming nothing more than a “hoax” as witnessed on Twitter:
“The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”
Trump also stated:
Give me clean, beautiful and healthy air – not the same old climate change (global warming) bullshit! I am tired of hearing this nonsense.
Ebell has attacked nearly every aspect of Obama’s environmental policies and accomplishments. He has said that the president’s decision in September to sign the Paris climate accord—which commits nations to sharp reductions in the greenhouse gas emissions responsible for climate change—was “clearly an unconstitutional usurpation of the Senate’s authority” because treaties need approval by two-thirds of the Senate. (The White House argued that it was an agreement, not a treaty.) In a speech in August at the Detroit Economic Club, Trump said he would cancel the agreement and stop all payments of U.S. tax dollars to U.N. climate change programs.
It’s time to return the United States to a land of laws and a nation ruled by the Constitution. President Obama ignored much of that. President-elect Trump will restore that. Trump will also restore jobs and our economy, and it looks like he has already started with the appointment of Myron Ebell, to lead his EPA transition team.
The “hoax” is up! Al Gore’s predictions of a melting polar ice cap was nothing more than a sham! It was was all nothing more than an opportunity for Al Gore and the Clinton cronies to line their pockets with billions of dollars in profit. Now, they will all have to find other scams to make money from other than global warming.
