At the same time Donald Trump was taking meetings with Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio, the president-elect was selecting a climate change skeptic and fossil fuels industry ally to head the Environmental Protection Agency. But perhaps the most disturbing action of the Trump transition so far took place at the Department of Energy, where a questionnaire was distributed to agency officials asking them to name employees and contractors who have participated in United Nations climate talks over the past five years.
“I am alarmed by the questionnaire sent by the Trump transition team to the Department of Energy seeking the names of career civil servants who have worked on climate change policy,” House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) said in a statement. “This raises serious concerns as to the motivation of such a request and raises questions of possible retribution for following President Obama’s policies.”
