"The people of America have rejected the expertariat, and I think with good reason because I think the expertariat have been wrong about one thing after another, including climate policy. The expert class, it seems to me, is full of arrogance or hubris."
Yes, Myron Ebell - because there is of course nothing remotely arrogant or hubristic about claiming to know better than experts in the field, is there? When in the run-up to the EU referendum Michael Gove argued that Britons had "had enough of experts", he was clearly echoing a worrying transatlantic position.
Ebell - the man who until recently led Donald Trump's transition team for the Environmental Protection Agency - has branded the environmental movement "the greatest threat to freedom and prosperity in the modern world". As much of a dangerous egomaniacal lunatic as Trump seems, it's profoundly unsettling to realise that there are plenty of others who share his apparently perverse worldview.
In other words, we're all fucked.
