Fmr. Harvard Physicist praises Trump’s EPA pick: ‘There is nothing unclean about CO2 & the environment doesn’t need to be ‘protected’ against it’

-

Former Harvard University Physicist Dr. Lubos Motl:

Pruitt has rightfully pointed out that the Environmental Protection Agency has overstepped its authority when it decided to regulate carbon dioxide according to the “Clean Power Plan”. There is nothing unclean about carbon dioxide and the environment doesn’t need to be “protected” against it. Some legally inaccessible and scientifically indefensible steps were already made by the “Clean Air Act”, I guess.

These are lots of historical technicalities that will hopefully become irrelevant soon. Pruitt, a friend of the fossil fuels, the cheapest yet accessible source of energy, has raised some appropriate legal arguments at appropriate places and he should be able to clean the mess after caused by the Obama administration’s contamination of the environmental laws in the U.S., remove the harmful regulations, and stop the financial flows of the U.S. taxpayer money towards assorted fraudulent “renewable” special business interests.
