Trump’s EPA takes down critical climate data

The Trump administration has removed climate information from the website of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The missing info includes climate plans created during the Obama administration, tribal assistance programs, and references to international cooperation to combat this global threat, such as our country’s support of last year’s United Nations Climate Change Conference. Notably, also stricken from the site is any mention of carbon pollution being a contributing cause of climate change. (It most certainly is.) Climate adaptation, however, has been emphasized. To see for yourself, Climate Central, the group tracking the EPA website changes, has released side-by-side comparisons of the agency’s website before and after President Trump took office.
