新代理环保署长预计将继续放松监管

川普总统说,他“丝毫不怀疑”新任环保署代理署长惠勒将继续推行“我们宏伟、持久的环保署使命”。

不过,一些环保人士和民主党人说,这正是他们担心惠勒将要做的 – 维持普鲁伊特的放松监管政策。

出生在俄亥俄州的惠勒曾经做过律师,并长期为煤矿产业游说。

惠勒还曾担任过来自奥克拉荷马州的英霍夫参议员的办公室主任。英霍夫参议员是美国最坚定否认气候变化的人士之一。

惠勒对那些宣称人类活动造成地球气候变暖的人持批评态度。

Acting EPA Chief Expected to Carry Out Deregulation

President Donald Trump says he has "no doubt" the new acting chief of the EPA, Andrew Wheeler, will continue with "our great and lasting EPA agenda."

But environmentalists and some Democrats are already saying they are afraid that's exactly what he will do -- keep Scott Pruitt's policy of deregulation.

The Ohio-born Wheeler is a former lawyer and longtime coal industry lobbyist.

He is also a former chief of staff for Oklahoma Republican Senator James Inhofe -- one of the country's most vocal deniers of climate change.

Wheeler is also a critic of those who say human activity is causing the Earth to get warmer.
