    This is odd because Wheeler is a career coal industry lobbyist who denies climate change and has worked very hard at politicizing science and sued the EPA many times, wants to defund it entirely (yes, he wants to entirely defund the agency he is in charge of). He has blocked reports, gagged scientists and elevated science deniers in positions of influence where they can, and do, overrule scientists. He is also part of efforts to entirely defund agencies like NOAA precisely because they share public data that contradict his climate change denial aims. He is, in fact, the ultimate industry hack, you can hardly be any more anti-science than this guy.

    This initiative looks exactly like a deceitful attempt to politicize science while pretending otherwise. So I'm not surprised that Sharpe agrees with that, the intent has nothing to do with the stated goals. He is exactly on that side of things, politicising science while pretending to be on a crusade to do the opposite. Either he agrees with that, likely, or is too clueless to tell otherwise, or he didn't read the article. Either way, typical Sharpe.
