Despite the fact that she functioned as a best controller heading the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, Jim Marston of the Environmental Defense Fund disclosed to Buchele that Hartnett White emerges for a "bizarre" resistance to directions.
A White House official confirms with NPR that Kathleen Hartnett White's controversial nomination to head the Council on Environmental Quality is being withdrawn. Trump resubmitted White's nomination in January.
Merkley noted that there are multiple quotes from White "calling environmentalists Marxist, and those who are concerned about climate change as pagans".
Critics also pounced on her comments that using fossil fuels had "vastly improved living conditions across the world".
Her nomination had been seen as troubled in recent days.
During Perry's tenure as governor of Texas, White often was critical of what she called the Obama administration's "imperial EPA", the Environmental Protection Agency, and she opposed stricter limits on air and water pollution. She told members of the Environment and Public Works Committee (EPW) that carbon dioxide has none of the characteristics of the pollutants that have a "direct impact on human health".
But on Saturday, reported the administration's plan to pull the nomination after it "failed to gather momentum even as some of the administration's other senior environmental policy picks had won approval, with some Senate Republicans raising questions about her expertise".
Hartnett White is now a senior fellow at the Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF), which has received funding from ExxonMobil, Chevron, the Koch network, and the Heartland Institute. Democrats and some Midwestern Republicans anxious Hartnett White's previous comments calling the EPA's Renewable Fuel Standard unethical would lead to a weaker biofuels program.
A White House official later confirmed the report.
She cleared the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee previous year on a party-line vote, but Democratic opposition meant the White House had to renominate her this month.
But you can not do this. "This is letting him have his power over us". "She (the victim) will come out and tell you this". Update , 2/2/18, 1:15 p.m.: Margraves appeared in court again this afternoon, this time to apologize to the judge .
