Topic - Myron Ebell
The Los Angeles Times has stirred a dust-up over global warming with a newly announced policy barring letters to the editor that deny the existence of man-made climate change.
As Myron Ebell, the Competitive Enterprise Institute's director of global warming and international environmental policy, told Mr. Bastasch, "Gore's eco-imperialism is uncomfortably close to the original racist goals of Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, who advocated population control in order to control the number of black and brown people in the world."
"Obviously, humans do have an impact on climate," said Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and a leading global-warming skeptic. "The question is whether burning fossil fuels like coal and natural gas is leading to the rapid warming of the planet, and notwithstanding the Los Angeles Times' position on the issue, the evidence is that it isn't."
