You just have to love a man who is so  hated by the green machine.  Myron Ebell has a stellar profile. 
Greenpeace has him in their "A Field Guide To Climate Criminals.  Funny what the truth will do.

Myron Ebell

Myron Ebell is director of energy and global warming policy at CEI. He also chairs the Cooler Heads Coalition, which comprises over two dozen non-profit groups in this country and abroad that question global warming alarmism and oppose energy rationing policies.

Prior to coming to CEI, Mr. Ebell was policy director at Frontiers of Freedom, a public-policy advocacy organization founded by former US Senator Malcolm Wallop. While at Frontiers of Freedom, he worked on property rights, the Endangered Species Act, federal-lands policies, and global warming. He previously served as senior legislative assistant to Rep. John Shadegg, where he helped develop landmark legislation that would reform the Endangered Species Act, and before that as Washington representative of the American Land Rights Association and as assistant to the chairman of the National Taxpayers Union.

Mr. Ebell has appeared as a guest on numerous television shows, including the NBC Nightly News, PBS News Hour, BBC's Newsnight, CNN, C-SPAN, CNBC, MSNBC's Hardball, ITN, Voice of America, Televisa, Sky TV, Fox News's Special Report with Brit Hume, O'Reilly Factor, and Hannity and Colmes, and on national television networks in Australia, Canada, France, Belgium, Greece, Switzerland, and Germany. He has appeared frequently on a variety of BBC radio news shows and on hundreds of radio talk shows, including G. Gordon Liddy, Michael Reagan, Jim Bohannon, Blanquita Cullum, Janet Parshall, Neal Boortz, Thom Hartmann, Jane Chastain, Alan Colmes, Alan Nathan, and National Public Radio's Diane Rehm, Talk of the Nation, To the Point, Living on Earth, and All Things Considered. In 2004, he was featured in a BBC Radio documentary, The Climate Wars, and in 2005 participated in a BBC World Television debate on the Kyoto Protocol. Mr. Ebell's writings have appeared in a variety of publications, including USA Today, Washington Post, Human Events, London’s Guardian, Star Ledger, Philadelphia Inquirer, Manchester Union Leader, Anchorage Daily News, and Environmental Law Forum.

Mr. Ebell has testified before six House and Senate committees. On radio and television and in person, he has debated then-Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt, then-EPA Administrator Carol Browner, then-CEQ Chairman Katie McGinty, then-Acting CEQ Chairman George Frampton, then-British Environment Minister Michael Meacher, former British Environment Minister John Selwyn Gummer, then-Dutch Environment Minister Jan Pronk, European Environment Agency Executive Director Jacqueline McGlade, several Senators and Representatives, and the heads of the Sierra Club, Friends of the Earth, League of Conservation Voters, Wilderness Society, Greenpeace USA, Friends of the Earth UK, National Environmental Trust, Public Citizen, and Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy. In May 2005, the Oxford Union invited Mr. Ebell to speak in a debate on global warming. He also spoke on the opening plenary panel of the Society of Environmental Journalists’ annual meeting in 2004, along with Teresa Heinz Kerry, Ted Danson, and Franco Harris.

Among numerous recognitions, Greenpeace featured Mr. Ebell and three of his CEI colleagues in “A Field Guide to Climate Criminals” distributed at the UN climate meeting in Montreal in December 2005. Rolling Stone magazine in its November 17, 2005 issue named Mr. Ebell one of six “Misleaders” on global warming in a special feature, along with President Bush, Senator James Inhofe, and Michael Crichton. In November 2004 as a result of a BBC Radio interview, seven members of the British House of Commons from all three major parties introduced a motion to censure Mr. Ebell “in the strongest possible terms.” In its May 22, 2004 special Issues and Answers issue, National Journal profiled Mr. Ebell as one of ten people who would lead the global warming debate during the next presidential administration. The Clean Air Trust in March 2001 named Mr. Ebell its "Villain of the Month" for his role in convincing the Bush Administration not to regulate carbon dioxide emissions.

A native of Baker City, Oregon, Mr. Ebell holds a B.A. from Colorado College and an M.Sc. from the London School of Economics. He also did graduate work at the University of California at San Diego and at Peterhouse, Cambridge University.

 On the Air Media Appearances


  • ESA Coalition Letter to Senator James M. Inhofe
    The U.S. Supreme Court’s contentious decision in Kelo v. New London has brought the need to protect private property rights to the forefront of America’s civic debate. Citizens from coast-to-coast recognize the vital importance of being secure in the ownership and use of their homes, small businesses and family farms.
  • 'Oil Addiction' Talk Boosts Enviro Leftists
    “America is addicted to oil.” With these five words in his State of the Union speech, President George W. Bush confounded steadfast allies on energy policy and emboldened his bitterest enemies. Political sages often counsel paying more attention to deeds than to words, but in this case, the President’s irresponsible rhetoric is likely to have far more damaging consequences than the minor policy changes he went on to recommend.
