On the eve of all the hyper-political climate change marches (hilariously, there will be snow at many), the EPA has done something to make all the “let’s take a fossil fueled trip to a march demonizing fossil fuels” Warmists even more upset
(The Hill) The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) removed several pages – including those related to climate change – from its website on Friday as part of an update to “reflect the agency’s new direction under President Donald Trump and Administrator Scott Pruitt.”
EPA officials removed the page relating to the Obama administration’s main emissions regulation for power plants, which now directs to an article about an executive order Trump signed in March undoing Obama’s climate agenda.
The agency’s pages relating to climate change, climate science, the impacts of climate change and what readers can do about climate change are all gone from the live site, each replaced with a banner headline saying “this page is being updated.”
The latter should freak out Warmists even more, because there is no telling what the updates might be.
“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,” said J.P. Freire, the agency’s associate administrator for public affairs, 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“We want to eliminate confusion by removing outdated language first and making room to discuss how we’re protecting the environment and human health by partnering with states and working within the law.”
What you can bet will go away will be most of the yammering about the current warm period being mostly/solely man-caused.
But, hey, have fun with your little march, Warmists.
