WASHINGTON – Steve Milloy, a regular on Fox News and publisher of the blog JunkScience.com, has long railed against a culture within the U.S. government of pseudo-scientific research and overregulation that has held back America’s energy industries.
With President Donald Trump in the White House, promising to roll back the Obama administration’s efforts to slow climate change, Milloy and his tribe of conservative, pro-fossil fuel thinkers and writers should be ecstatic. But seven months into the new administration, Milloy is not exactly enthusiastic.
“They’re doing the best they can given the circumstances,” Milloy said. “The way the whole regulatory system is set up, it’s not designed to be rolled back. Washington is a swampy place.”
