Trump Nominates Climate Skeptic For Top White House Spot

President Trump threw more water on the global warming party this week with a key White House nod.

Kathleen Hartnett White is an A-list pariah for econuts around the world for her scholarly research and criticism of hot air fanaticism.

Leftist bomb-throwers have dubbed her one of the oil industry’s best friends as she has historically made a case for continued reliance on fossil fuels while casting doubt on anthropogenic warming.

If the choice goes through, White will serve as a White House member of the Council on Environmental Quality, which has libs seething.

This move coupled with Trump’s canceling of the Clean Power Plan is just too much for the left to handle.

Here’s more from Daily Caller…

President Donald Trump nominated a climate change skeptic to lead the White House’s environmental policy board Thursday night.

Trump picked Kathleen Hartnett White to serve as a member on the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), which ensures that agencies comply with environmental rules before approving projects. White has spent much of her public life making what she calls the “moral case for fossil fuels.”

White is a fellow for environment issues at the Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF), a free market group that has been a vehement critic of former President Barack Obama’s climate policies. She was also the former chairwoman of the state’s CEQ.

White’s position on carbon emissions is sure to roil environmental activists already concerned about Trump’s climate skepticism and environmental rollbacks. She has been upfront in recent months about her opposition to rules regulating carbon emissions.

“Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant, and carbon is certainly not a poison. Carbon is the chemical basis of all life on earth. Our bones and blood are made out of carbon,” White wrote in a June op-ed.
