The latest example of the incompetence of Trump's cabinet is Bill Wehrum, who was the Assistant Administrator of the EPA - until he resigned on June 30, after a House committee launched an investigation of him in April. He is under scrutiny for his dealings with industry players who lobbied the government to ease carbon pollution limits.
According to The New York Times, "Wehrum worked for the better part of a decade to weaken air pollution rules by fighting the Environmental Protection Agency in court on behalf of chemical manufacturers, refineries, oil drillers and coal-burning power plants.
He worked for two years as the ACTING assistant EPA administrator for George W. Bush , but Senate Democrats wisely blocked his confirmation for a PERMANENT position. Naturally, he became the assistant administrator of the EPA again on November 20.2017.
Now that he's gone, we can a breathe a little easier, but only temporarily.
Andrew R. Wheeler, became ACTING head of the EPA starting in July of 2018. He was confirmed to a permanent position by the Senate on February 28, 2019.
Prior to his current position, he previously worked in the law firm Faegre Baker Daniels, representing coal magnate Robert E. Murray and lobbying against the Obama Administration's environmental regulations. Wheeler served as chief counsel to the United States Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works and to the chairman U.S. Senator James Inhofe, prominent for his rejection of climate change. Wheeler is a critic of limits on greenhouse gas emissions and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
