The Koch Brothers, Big Oil, and Texas Utilities
are Already Shaping Trump’s Environmental Agenda

The Fueling Freedom Project is the climate-denying
voice at the Trump transition table.

As President-elect Donald Trump and his team seek to find their ideal candidate to run the Environmental Protection Agency, a troubling picture of his energy and environment experts is emerging.

.

The early sign is that Trump ran as a climate denier and is starting to surround himself with climate deniers, and thats just the wrong direction to go, said Shannon Fisk, managing attorney for the coal program at Earthjustice. The science is clear on this: Climate change is happening and human activity is causing it.

.

Despite the fact that, as Fisk told ThinkProgress, there are many Republicans out there who do not deny the climate science, who are on board with realizing the economic promise of clean energy, Trumps budding administration seems tightly linked to a Texas-based fossil fuel advocacy group and its parent organization, the far-right Texas Public Policy Foundation.

.

The chair of TPPFs Fueling Freedom Project, Doug Domenech, has already been tapped by the incoming administration as head of the Interior Department transition team, and a senior fellow, Kathleen Hartnett White, is a rumored candidate for head of the EPA.

.

Fueling Freedoms mission is explicitly anti-environmental.
The projects goals include explaining the forgotten moral case for fossil fuels and ending the EPAs regulation of carbon dioxide. (The EPA has the authority??and, indeed, must??regulate carbon dioxide as a pollutant. Not only is carbon dioxide a greenhouse gas that fuels climate change, it also contributes to ocean acidification. Significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions is likely the only way humanity can avoid triggering catastrophic climate disruption.)

.

Fueling Freedom is part of a multi-organizational effort to fight the Clean Power Plan, an EPA rule that curbs carbon emissions from power plants. The Clean Power Plan is seen as one of the strongest federal actions against climate change.

.

Trump has repeatedly said he will dismantle it, despite the fact that it has broad bipartisan support among U.S. voters.
White disagrees with even the basic premise that carbon dioxide is problematic.

.

Her book (Fueling Freedom: Exposing the Mad War on Energy) has all kinds of examples of the really beneficial impacts of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, she says in a 2015 YouTube video, titled Kathleen Hartnett White discusses the benefits of CO2.

.

White is not your everyday climate denier. In fact, one of the most common, and, indeed, most accessible, reasons people have to be skeptical of climate science is the idea that the world is very big, and humans couldnt possibly affect the climate on such a large scale. (It is, but we can and do.) White doesnt even give lip service to that idea??she just thinks that maybe all this pollution is a good thing.
