The importance of independent, unbiased data

By Christine Todd Whitman The Hill January 24, 2019 The Trump administration’s latest revelation that perhaps thousands more kids have been separated from their families at the border, is yet another signal of how this administration seemingly manipulates facts and misleads the public — in ways that are slowly chipping away at our democracy's credibility and integrity.

By Christine Todd Whitman Harvard Law Review November 8, 2018 In early October, the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released an alarming new report on the impact climate change will have on the planet by 2040. These new findings, reviewed by ninety-one international scientists, are worrisome because it now seems that disaster is possible with an even smaller increase in global temperatures than previously estimated. In fact, the report indicates that if urgent and unprecedented change does not take place, we are at risk of losing our planet to the effects of global warming – extreme heat, drought, floods, poverty and the like.

Ex-EPA chief: Trump will pollute your air and make you pay for it

By Christine Todd Whitman CNN October 4, 2018 With the Trump administration taking steps to roll back America's clean-cars standards, states are preparing for what is sure to be an epic legal battle over states' authority to protect their citizens from dangerous pollution.

By Christine Todd Whitman New Jersey Opinion October 1, 2018 During my time as both governor of New Jersey and administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, I knew that I'd be judged by my actions.

Calling my fellow Republicans: Trump is clearly unfit to remain in office

By Christine Todd Whitman Los Angeles Times July 22, 2018 President Trump’s disgraceful performance in Helsinki, Finland, and in the days since is an indication that he is not fit to remain in office. Trump’s 2016 “America First” platform might be more aptly named “Russia First” after the disaster that occurred last week. [...]

Christine Todd Whitman: Oil industry is ‘peddling misinformation’ about electric vehicles

By Christine Todd Whitman Yahoo! Finance June 29, 2018 When technological innovation threatens to upend the status quo, the status quo fights back. Every time.

Christine Todd Whitman: Scott Pruitt is unfit to run the EPA

By Christine Todd Whitman The Hill April 27, 2018 Scott Pruitt’s ethical tone deafness has, ironically, come across loud and clear. The rule he signed this week targeting what he called “secret science” serves as yet further evidence of his inability to run the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with ethical integrity. In fact, the new rule is a surefire way to kill science at the agency as it de-incentivizes the private sector to share proprietary studies with the EPA. [...]
