Myron EbellDirector of Global Warming and International Environmental Policy, CEI
Myron Ebell is director of energy and global warming policy at CEI. He also serves as director of Freedom Action, a web-based grassroots activist organization loosely affiliated with CEI, and 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.<br /> <br /> In March 2010, the Financial Times called Ebell “one of America’s most prominent climate-change skeptics.” In July 2009, the Business Insider’s Green Sheet named him third in its list of the Ten Most-Respected Global Warming Skeptics, after Professor Freeman Dyson and Dr. Bjorn Lomborg, and commented, “Myron Ebell may be enemy #1 to the current climate change community.”<br /> <br /> Among numerous other recognitions, Vanity Fair magazine published a long, highly critical profile of Ebell in their May 2007 “second annual Green Issue.” Greenpeace featured 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 Ebell one of six “Misleaders” on global warming in a special feature, along with President George W. Bush, Senator James Inhofe, and the late Michael Crichton. As a result of a BBC Radio interview in November 2004, seven members of the British House of Commons from all three major parties introduced a motion to censure Ebell “in the strongest possible terms.” In its May 22, 2004 special Issues and Answers issue, National Journal profiled 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 Ebell its "Villain of the Month" for his role in convincing the Bush Administration not to regulate carbon dioxide emissions.
