EPA Nominee Wheeler Defends Rollbacks While Pressed on Climate

EPA Nominee Wheeler Defends Rollbacks While Pressed on ClimateWheeler, a former energy lobbyist who has served as acting administrator for six months, did not mention global warming in his opening remarks to the Environment and Public Works Committee, instead touting agency deregulatory efforts he said would spare businesses some $1.8 billion in compliance costs. ?How does it happen that the nominee to be head of the Environmental Protection Agency does not mention the words climate change at a time when the scientific community thinks climate change is the greatest environmental crisis facing the planet?? asked Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent from Vermont who caucuses with Democrats.
