Says President Trump’s climate policies prompted her resignation. “Or,” as Breitbart News so aptly puts it, “as we climate realists prefer to put it — #winning.”
Elizabeth “Betsy” Southerland, who had worked at the EPA for thirty years, resigned on Tuesday.
Southerland said in her letter that “the environmental field is suffering from the temporary triumph of myth over truth.”
But as Breitbart explains, if you read her entire letter, it’s really a blessing that she’s gone.
“The truth is there is NO war on coal, there is NO economic crisis caused by environmental protection, and climate change IS caused by man’s activities,” Southerland wrote, directly rejecting many of Trump’s claims.
No war on coal? Wow! Is it really possible that someone in such a position of power could be that clueless? (She was director of science and technology in the Office of Water.)
