UKIP's Paul Nuttall, is ready to face head-on the challenges of the EU's Environment Committee.
"I am looking forward to injecting a bit of realism into the sensationalist debate that goes on about environmental matters these days," said the North West MEP.
"Now that the majority of people no longer support the EU, the pro-European politicians have cyincally jumped on the environmental bandwagon and are trying to us so-called man-made climate change as justification for their own existence.
"And this is despite the fact that the globe has actually showed a cooling trend since 2001.
"We are, of course, in favour of conserving the earth's resources but the environment has become a political football with lobbyists in the background often throwing the ball.
"Inefficient wind turbines blighting our beauty spots and seascapes are a prime example of EU environmental nonsense.
"Being a member of the EU is costing this country £45 million a day and just think how this could be used to directly benefit this country. We should be making our own decisions and not have rules imposed on us by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels," he said.
