"Greens Launch Ads Against Trump Environmental Pick"

"The Sierra Club is running a Facebook advertising campaign to oppose Kathleen Hartnett White, President Trump’s nominee for a top environmental policy position.

The nation’s largest green group says in the ads that Hartnett White is “uniquely unqualified” to be chairwoman of the White House’s Council on Environmental Quality.

“She’s said that believing in climate change is ‘a kind of paganism’ and dismissed carbon dioxide as a pollutant,” the ad says.

“Kathleen Hartnett White is a direct threat to Americans' health and safety and her nomination must be rejected,” Matthew Gravatt, the Sierra Club’s associate legislative director, said in a statement about the campaign."
