Hard to believe, but Donald Trump's selection to head the Department of the Interior is worse than his pick to head the Environmental Protection Agency.
Her name is Cathy Anne McMorris Rodgers. And she is NO friend of the environment, conservation, our national parks, monuments, seashores, lakeshores, and historical sites.
Great pick. Can you hear the sarcasm?
Trump expected to pick oil drilling advocate to head Interior
Part of the problem is excerpted below. But not all of it.
"On her website, she also touts her support of the recent repeal of the decades old ban on oil exports, and for a bill to reject the EPA’s Waters of the United States Act as some of her key achievements on energy and environment.
She has also expressed skepticism about climate change, consistently opposing Obama’s measures to combat it, and once arguing that former Vice President Al Gore, a longtime advocate for steps to combat global warming, deserves an “F” in science and an “A” in creative writing.
The League of Conservation Voters, which publishes a score card ranking the environmental record of each member of Congress, gave McMorris Rodgers a zero in its most recent ratings."
Like I said - great pick. If you want to pave paradise and put up a parking lot, that is. She apparently does.
