The Big Wheel to be named Permanent EPA Boss

Timothy Birdnow

It looks like President Trump is going to nominate Andrew Wheeler to succeed Scott Pruitt at the hyper-partisan Environmental Protection Agency.

Wheeler has been the man at the wheel of the EPA since the Left drove Scott Pruitt out. He's done a fairly good job, but not as well as Pruitt (which was why they had to create accusations of corruption against him.)

According to his bio at

Mr. Wheeler has dedicated his career to advancing sound environmental policies. He began his career during the George H. W. Bush Administration as a Special Assistant in EPA's Pollution Prevention and Toxics office.

He was a Principal and the team leader of the Energy and Environment Practice Group at FaegreBD Consulting, as well as Counsel at Faegre Baker Daniels law firm, where he practiced since 2009. He also served as the Co-chair of the Energy and Natural Resources Industry team across the entire firm.

Prior to his work with the firm, Mr. Wheeler served for six years as the Majority Staff Director and Chief Counsel, as well as the Minority Staff Director, of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. Before his time at the full Senate EPW Committee, Mr. Wheeler served in a similar capacity for six years for the Subcommittee on Clean Air, Climate Change, Wetlands and Nuclear Safety.

Mr. Wheeler is the past Chairman of the National Energy Resource Organization (NERO) and a Stennis Fellow. Mr. Wheeler is also an Eagle Scout.

End excerpt.

The self-satisfied Gang Greenous DeSmug Blog (yes, I meant to say that) is quite unhappy with Wheels. See here.

Wheeler's not as aggressive as Pruitt, but he is a decent choice. Hopefully the Senate won't hold him up. I imagine the Democrats are planning to Kavanaugh him; be prepared for an onslaught of accusations and character assassinations.
