Axios cites CEI Director Center for Energy and Environment, Myron Ebell on climate change.
Myron Ebell, director for energy and environment at the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute, who was on the Trump transition team in 2016, says he hopes the Environmental Protection Agency will roll backits 2009 scientific findingthat concluded greenhouse gases endanger public health and welfare. That finding underpins all federal climate regulations.
- Ebell and other like-minded conservatives have been wanting Trump to undo that for years, but EPA has declined.
- This move could be bolstered by a more conservative Supreme Court, assuming Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed. Justices could revisit a landmark 2007 high court decision that paved the way for the 2009 finding.
