Trump Administration Orders EPA to Remove Its Climate Change Web Page

The Trump administration has instructed U.S. EPA to get rid of mentions of climate change from its website. Communications staff were told to remove the agency’s webpage on climate change, according to two unnamed EPA staff members. The move adds to concerns that a Trump administration will promote a denial of fundamental science within its agencies.

“If the website goes dark, years of work we have done on climate change will disappear,” one of the staff members told Reuters.

If climate change is removed from EPA’s site, it won’t be the Trump administration’s first online scrubbing of the issue. Moments after the inauguration Friday, the new whitehouse.gov site had eliminated all mention of former President Obama’s climate initiatives and replaced them with an “America First” energy plan. It calls for eliminating Obama’s Climate Action Plan.

the official White House website was also completely replaced, with nearly every reference to climate change erased from the site.
