The Environmental Data and Governance Initiative monitors the availability of scientific research by the federal government. They cite the removal of “substantial” climate change data from federal climate websites.
Today I checked the EPA’s climate change FAQ site. That site used to answer questions about climate change. It was deleted on inauguration day. Today it simply says; “This page is being updated.”
Some see this as a Trump administration war on climate science. Minnesota author Shawn Otto, is husband of state auditor and gubernatorial candidate Rebecca Otto. He wrote “The War on Science” – and is the co-founder of Climate Debate-dot-Org.
On MPR’s Climate Cast I asked Shawn about his take on disappearing climate change information on government websites.
