Dozens of Scientists, Orgs Rally Behind Trump’s Planned Climate Change Panel
The Daily Caller cited Director of the Center for Energy and Environment Myron Ebell on CEI led coalition letter to President Trump on his proposed Commission on Climate Security.
“The conclusions and predictions made by these reports are the basis for proposed energy policies that could cost trillions of dollars in less than a decade and tens of trillions of dollars over several decades,” the letter says. “Given the magnitude of the potential costs involved, we think that taking the insular processes of official, consensus science on trust, as has been the case for the past three decades, is negligent and imprudent.”
“If the alarmists are truly confident in their claims, they should welcome a review which would put to rest the doubts that have been expressed by climate skeptics. The opposition to a critical review suggests that the alarmists know their case is built on hot air and not on sound science,” Myron Ebell, director of the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Center for Energy and Environment, said in a statement.
