Trump's Pick For EPA Chief Says Climate Threat Isn't 'The Greatest Crisis'

President Donald Trump’s new pick to run the Environmental Protection Agency said he doesn't believe climate change is a major crisis. EPA Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler said he'd continue to undo Obama-era emission limits if confirmed, says Reuters. Despite Democratic opposition, Wheeler’s confirmation is expected to sail through the Republican-controlled Senate. A federal report from 13 agencies issued last year said climate change will cost the U.S. economy hundreds of billions of dollars by the end of the century. Wheeler has been running the EPA since July when his predecessor Scott Pruitt resigned.
