    Trump to name coal lobbyist as deputy EPA chief

    Coal lobbyist Andrew Wheeler is reportedly President Trump’s pick to be the deputy chief of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and is expected to be tapped for the position in coming weeks.

    Wheeler, who once served as an adviser to Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), is Trump’s top choice to fill the position, but it is unclear when the official announcement will be made, Politico reported Thursday.

     

    Wheeler has experience working as an EPA staffer before working as a Republican staffer on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. He now co-leads the law firm Faegre Baker Daniels’s energy and natural resources practice.

    2. This whole damn administration

    is hell bent on destroying all the programs that benefit the people in any way, shape or form.

    They should be thrown out on their keisters!

    3. Isn't Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) the nut-case that threw..

    …a snowball on the Senate floor and proclaimed that his action “proved that there wasn’t any climate change?

    5. I'd like to say I'm shocked but I am not.

    The Trump administration is essentially a takeover of the U.S. Government by the fossil fuel industry.  Research on climate change is out–drilling on public lands is in.

    Elections have consequences.
