EPA pulls climate science web pages to reflect White House views

The Washington Post notes that the EPA has pulled a nearly 20-year-old page explaining the fundamentals of climate change and how it affects the US. While updates to the site were frozen and closely scrutinized under President George W. Bush's administration, his White House was still content to leave the page running -- clearly, even that was too much under the new presidency.

The EPA stresses that it will use "proper archiving procedures" to preserve the previous version of its website. That information won't disappear if you're really looking for it. However, the very fact that it's going away from the current site is problematic. While the EPA website is bound to reflect administration policies, the basic climate science content was a valuable source of information for students and anyone else who needs to know how climate change works. Curious minds will have to turn to the archives or third-party sources to get the facts. And of course, it's hard to escape the irony of an environmental agency that avoids mentioning science that helps the environment.
