Andrew Wheeler’s confirmation hearing to officially run the EPA took place on Wednesday. He’s been acting chief for several months. Wheeler replaced Scott Pruitt, who resigned because of ethics scandals. Wheeler has already done a lot to undo environmental regulations. Democratic senators grilled him on that and on his views about global warming.
