Trump is closing the Energy Department’s Climate and Technology shop

President Trump's war against climate science has claimed yet another victim. The U.S. Department of Energy has informed staff that the agency's Office of International Climate and Technology is being disbanded. Formed in 2010, the 11-member team has played an important role in helping other nations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The office’s experts have also advised nations on how best to promote energy efficiency and other climate change solutions, like helping India purchase LED lamps for consumers and encouraging the expansion of electric cars in Asia. Unfortunately, for our nation and the rest of the world, the Trump administration is continuing its attack on clean energy and climate policies—under the guise of federal budget cuts.
