‘CO2 is the gas of life!’ Trump environmental nominee exposed as bizarre climate change conspiracy theorist

Published

on

Kathleen Hartnett White, who is President Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), has been exposed as a conspiracy theorist who believes that nothing bad will happen if human beings flood the atmosphere with carbon dioxide.

The Daily Beast reports that White — who has been renominated after the Senate declined to consider her nomination in the wake of a disastrous confirmation hearing in which she could not say whether water expands as it’s heated — has a long history of spouting scientifically illiterate theories about climate change.

In a 2015 op-ed, for example, White calls carbon dioxide “the gas of life” and is “an essential nutrient for plant growth on which human life depends.”

Of course, the issue is not whether CO2 is a necessary gas for life on Earth, but whether putting too much of it in the atmosphere will cause the Earth’s temperature to rise in ways that will make for more extreme weather.

In the same op-ed, White said that climate scientists were lying about rising temperatures and sea levels because they were part of a “grand scheme to decarbonize human societies.” She has also called climate science “the Left’s secular religion,” and is part of a “totalitarian” aim to enslave humanity.

Trump picks Antonin Scalia’s son to replace disgraced former Labor Secretary: report

Published

on

On Thursday, NPR reported that President Donald Trump is naming Eugene Scalia, the son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, to take over as Secretary of Labor.

Scalia, who served on the court from 1986 to his death in 2016, was known as one of the staunchest conservatives on the bench. His seat was deliberately kept vacant by Republicans for over a year to deny President Barack Obama the ability to make an appointment to it.

The Department of Labor was until this month run by former federal prosecutor Alexander Acosta, who resigned in disgrace amid renewed questions about his role in brokering a potentially illegal sweetheart plea agreement with hedge fund manager and accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
