Podesta’s White House return means a more aggressive green agenda

“Since the Republicans won control of the House in the 2010 elections, he has criticized the Obama White House for wasting time on legislation that won’t pass, instead of using executive authority to push the left’s agenda, which is incredible considering how far Obama has gone to abuse his authority,” Myron Ebell, director of the Center of Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.


“I expect that Podesta will push the EPA to move more quickly to kill coal and regulate fracking and will push the Interior Department to lock up more federal lands in the West by executive order,” Ebell said. “My guess is that it’s now certain that Obama will delay a decision on the Keystone XL Pipeline until TransCanada gives up or a new president is sworn in.”
