Very soon the most powerful man in the world will be someone who has called climate change a hoax. The man President-elect Trump has said will head his transition team at the Environmental Protection Agency is Myron Ebell from the Competitive Enterprise Institute who says the science is less than certain and is really one of many pretexts for expanding government.

.

We believed that the consensus was phony, Ebell told PBS in an interview explaining why he and others went to work to try and dismantle it. We believed that the so-called global warming consensus was not based on science, but was a political consensus, which included a number of scientists.

.

This is the person that looks to be tasked with picking the leadership of the U.S. government agency charged with addressing climate change.

.

This is probably a good place to start the conversation Ive been avoiding for years now. The evidence that Trump and Ebell are wrong on climate seems overwhelming to me. Theres literally thousands and thousands of pages of science and data that show, generally speaking, temperatures and sea levels are rising as concentrations of gases like CO2 and methane have also increased. Theres also plenty of science on related impacts like ocean acidification, shifts in ecosystems and threats to human populations and property as well. I can go on and on, but anyone reading this has probably heard it all before.

.

Heres something Ill say: Are there people who would cynically use climate change as a pretext to expand government? Maybe. I think its more likely they earnestly think government is the best way to address an urgent problem, but I cant really prove it. Personally, I go back and forth on how much of a role government should play. The most exciting potential solutions to me tend to be innovations coming out of universities, startups and corporate R&D labs, but often the folks working on private sector solutions also see a need for new regulations (and yes, a carbon tax probably would help Elon Musks bottom line, I get it).

.

What type of actions to take on climate is a policy argument worth having, but its one thats very different from the one about whether the science is settled or not.
