White House Removes Climate Change from Website

Trump administration drops climate change, civil rights, LGBT, and healthcare information pages from its official website.

As of today, official government website WhiteHouse.gov no longer contains pages related to climate change. The Trump Administration transferred the page—amongst others including those related to civil rights, LGBT, and healthcare information—to an archive site ObamaWhiteHouse.Archives.gov. After the November election, Trump announced his “100-day action plan to Make America Great Again,” wherein he stated that the United States would withdraw from the The Paris Agreement—a collaboration by nations worldwide to create policies toward reducing global warming. This action is a sign that the Trump administration will ignore mounting evidence that animal agriculture is one of the top producers of damaging greenhouse gases—emitting twice as much pollution as all of transportation combined, according to the United Nations. In place of the removed information, the administration has published pages entitled, “America’s First Energy Plan,” “Standing Up for Our Law Enforcement Community,” and “Making Our Military Strong Again.”
