Two sources close to Donald Trump’s campaign say that the president-elect has chosen a climate skeptic to lead his EPA transition team. Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute, is in charge of the transition plans. Ebell is the chairman of the Cooler Heads Coalition, a group of nonprofits that “question global warming alarmism and oppose energy-rationing policies.” Trump himself has frequently doubted the reality of climate change.
