At 1200PM EST today, Donald J. Trump took the oath of office and was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. At that same instant, the domain whitehouse.gov was switched, and in an instant, the climate change page which used to be front and center on the main whitehouse.gov web page, is no more. This side by side documents the change:
As Trump’s first order of business, he put up a page calling to end the worthless Climate Action Plan and the EPA’s “waters of the United States” draconian policy that turned puddles into protected waters.
You can hear the heads exploding already.
Added: BTW for those that think that the White House climate page was really “deleted” like those worried that climate data will be “deleted”, a new version of the WH website is just part of the normal transition, like changing the drapes and wallpaper and furniture in the White House. For those that want to see the old WH web page, complete with climate action plan, see the archives: https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/
