Excerpt from Climate Wire -- "Koonin advocated for a 'red team' approach to climate science in another Wall Street Journal op-ed in April. The exercise would allow critics to test the 'consensus' around climate science. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has publicly expressed interest in the idea, and he's rumored to be considering hiring Koonin to lead the process.Koonin has met with Pruitt and other Trump administration officials to discuss the idea of a 'red team,' he told E&E News on Friday. He declined to comment on whether he's in talks about running such an operation, but he said he'd consider it if certain conditions were met."
