Trump Names Climate Denier Kathleen Hartnett-White to Head White House Environmental Council | DeSmogBlog

President Donald Trump, as first reported by EnergyWire’s Hannah Northey‏ on Twitter and as stated in a White House press release, has named Kathleen Hartnett-White to chair the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ).

Hartnett-White, as previously reported by DeSmog, is a prominent climate change denier and former Chairman and Commissioner of the Texas Council on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) under then-Texas Governor Rick Perry. Perry now heads up the U.S. Department of Energy and is reported to have advocated for her to run CEQ. She is also an outspoken advocate of hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) and of exporting oil and gas to the global market.

Long seen as the presumptive front-runner to take the CEQ role, Hartnett-White also worked on President Trump’s presidential campaign on his Economic Advisory Team. And her name was once floated to head up the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as well, currently led by Scott Pruitt.

  1. I am not surprised but still bitterly disappointed. The only scientists who play down or deny climate change are the few sell outs to the fossil fuel industry. There have been “research studies” these so called scientists have reported on that are nothing but bunk. They are completely lacking a sense of morality.
    As for Mr. Trump, he never did have any morals. He is a self absorbed, moronic loud mouth who operates at a level of greed few have ever seen.
