Following reports that the Trump administration had ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to take down its website on climate change, the administration reversed its order and will let the site remain active for now, Inside EPA reported Wednesday.
Reuters reported early Wednesday that President Donald Trump’s team directed the agency to remove its climate page website that includes research on climate change and data on carbon emissions, citing two unnamed EPA employees.
Inside EPA reported later on Wednesday that the Trump team currently running the EPA has “agreed to stand down” on its order to remove the climate change site. The source had told Inside EPA Tuesday night that the Trump team had planned to remove the site as soon as Wednesday.
It will happen when it can take place in a more quiet more distracted time like a friday afternoon of Memorial Day weekend or something like that.
