Trump Effect: EPA Pulls Down Climate Science Website

Over the weekend Denver got nailed with a foot of snow, well after ski season has typically ended.

So it’s appropriate that it was the same week the EPA announced it is pulling down the agency’s climate science webpages to “reflect EPA’s priorities under the leadership of President Trump and Administrator Pruitt.”

In other words, no more taxpayer dollars will be wasted on a site used to promote global warming hysteria.

According to an anonymous insider, EPA head Scott Pruitt personally approved the move.

Three cheers!

Here’s more from Breitbart…

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) removed several web pages about climate change and greenhouse gas emissions from its homepage as the agency announced Friday that it would be “undergoing changes” to better reflect the Trump administration’s priorities.

Officials took down one website that appeared to contradict EPA administrator Scott Pruitt’s statements on climate change and removed another that provided information about the Clean Power Plan, an initiative of the Obama administration, the Washington Post reported.

“As EPA renews its commitment to human health and clean air, land, and water, our website needs to reflect the views of the leadership of the agency,” J.P. Freire, the agency’s associate administrator for public affairs, said in a statement. “We want to eliminate confusion by removing outdated language first and making room to discuss how we’re protecting the environment and human health by partnering with states and working within the law.”

The agency also said it would archive pages from the previous administration.

The climate change website now redirects to a page that says that “this page is being updated” and that “we are currently updating our website to reflect EPA’s priorities under the leadership of President Trump and Administrator Pruitt.”
