U.S. President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, has a “shaky” track record vis-à-vis environment, where on one hand, he acknowledges the reality of climate change and on the other, keeps thwarting the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulatory efforts.

Harvard law professor Richard J. Lazarus opines Kavanaugh’s approach to environmental laws might make it difficult to address current problems unless the Congress enacts new laws, notes Eco Watch.

Bill Snape, a law professor at American University and Center for Biological Diversity, calls Kavanaugh “Lord Voldemort” for his “consistent anti-environment” approach stemming from the penchant to clip EPA’s wings over regulation of pollution and climate change, notes Slate.
