"Today I was Trumped." That's from a tweet by environmental economist Robert Richardson at Michigan State. The message continues, "I have had the pleasure of serving on the EPA Board of Scientific Counselors, and my appointment was terminated today." Coral Davenport, who covers energy and the environment for the New York Times, says the move comes at a time when members of the administration and Congress have targeted the board to bring in more industry representation.
