Obviously, Tuesday’s election was the culmination of an incredible political movement the likes of which we haven’t seen in modern political history. It was a victory not only for conservatives but for every single American that is fed up with media bias and corruption in Washington.
There are plenty of reasons to be excited about the election result.
But, there is one fantastic development that stems from Trump’s victory that is getting overlooked by the media. If you have been reading SmallGovReport for awhile, you know that we don’t care for the EPA too much. The rampant corruption, eradication of thousands of jobs for no reason, Gold King mine debacle, and the cover up of the poison water in Flint has been absolutely unacceptable to any rational person.
But I’ve got some fantastic news for you.
One of Trump’s first actions as president will be to appoint a climate change skeptic to lead the EPA transition.
From The Daily Beast:
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.
Praise. The. Lord.
Hopefully, this means that Gina McCarthy is on her way out and will be replaced by a climate change skeptic.
This is the perfect solution. The leader of the EPA shouldn’t be someone who blindly follows a thoroughly debunked ideology with the goal of expanding government’s role in combating something we don’t know all the details about. Rather, a skeptic who will ask questions and look at the situation objectively would be better suited to lead the EPA.
That’s assuming we agree we even need the agency in the first place which is definitely debatable.
The term “skeptic” should be treated like a badge of honor. We should be skeptical of absolutely everything especially when it comes to politics.
With control of Congress, the White House, and ultimately the Supreme Court, Donald Trump is going to get some serious work done in Washington.
That should excite every single American that is tired of the status quo.
