But the administration has been slow to fill thousands of high-level failing to approve his nominations, but Rosenberg points out most of the positions don't require Senate approval. He says it's hard to tell if the White House isn't doing its job or doesn't think these appointees are necessary. Either way, he says, the result is the same. "There's no nominees," he says simply. '~rhere's no nominees in many cases. And what you really need is the professionals in those agencies, the career staff who know what needs to be done, know how to do it." One big problem seems to be the scientists' belief in climate change. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke recently criticized his agency's staff, 'saying many did not agree with the Trump administration's political goals. Rosenberg says Zinke is, in effect, ignoring reality. "Everything from severe weather to the heat, to droughts, to wildfires," he states. "It's not just the hurricanes. This is the world we're going to live in. And that means that we have to have a federal government that's really committed." Trump will be in Morgantown on Wednesday for an invitation only event.
