Trump Administration Assaults on Science and the Environment

(1/107) > >>

Evidence of the Trump administration's assault on science is already documented in several threads here, but now that he's President, and the science melt season proper has started, it seems appropriate to keep a record.

Within moments of yesterday's inauguration, all references to combating climate change disappeared from the White House website [https://www.whitehouse.gov]. A search for "climate" returns three results:

Welcome to the Wipe House  but  Archive.org is your friend.  See e.g. this page on climate policy with free pdf file.

Download pages like crazy!  Tommorow, Trump may nuke the wayback machine.

But I would still download and save stuff.  "Accidents" happen, or so I am told.

Fair play to Snopes. It notes that "Whitehouse.gov is sparsely populated". And legacy content will indeed live on in the ObamaWhiteHouse.gov site. It'll be interesting to see if they become competing poles of information.
