Andrew Wheeler Was a Coal Lobbyist. Now He Heads EPA.

The video below from CNN that asks: How on earth can a coal industry lobbyist be in charge of EPA, charged with protecting our health and safety from air and climate pollution?

From CNN’s Drew Griffin:

“Andrew Wheeler, the former coal lobbyist who is now acting administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, was a “driving force” behind the agenda of Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), who called climate change a “hoax,” according to people familiar with Wheeler’s work for the senator.”

Moms Clean Air Force opposes the nomination of Andrew Wheeler to run EPA; under his leadership as Deputy Administrator and Acting Administrator, he has set in motion dangerous rollbacks of air and climate pollution protections. He continues to protect the fossil fuel industry over the health of Americans.
