Reports of gag orders on climate change research, media pauses at the Environmental Protection Agency, and Twitter accounts being shut down has prompted this article. In the past few days, the Trump administration has tried to silence information on climate change. Since the inauguration, pages on climate change have been removed from the White House website. The National Park Service has been told to cease tweeting on several of their accounts after tweets were posted sharing climate change statistics. Today, we find out that the EPA has been asked to remove several of their pages on climate change.
Find out what you believe after reading these facts. Find out before it's banned, gagged, or removed. The "hoax that China created" is being scientifically backed by organizations in the U.S. whose purpose is to track climate and environmental changes. Personally, I'll believe the facts over any person who's financial interests lie in denying climate change effects on the environment.
Get it while it's hot... while the Earth is hot and getting hotter.
January 18th, 2017: NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) reported 2016 as the warmest year on record in their annual global temperatures analysis. Video shows 2016 as the third warmest year in a row to set a new record for global surface temperatures. You can read the full report and even click through slides from the conference.
January 18th, 2017: NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) releases a separate report stating 2016 as the warmest year on record (137 years). The Earth's warming has far reaching implications. NOAA's website is a great resource for trumping the hoax that climate change is a hoax. There are more graphs and statistics than I can go through. With Climate at a Glance you can compare for yourself as far back as 1895 to 2016 to see for yourself.
August 2016: Environmental Protection Agency releases the fourth edition of Climate Change Indicators in the United States. The report's mission as stated within is "informing readers' understanding on climate change". Indicators are separate topics that are tracked and recorded by the report. There are 37 indicators, 7 of which were added in 2016. Some of the newest indicators are heat related illnesses and coastal flooding. Oh, you thought we could raise the planet's temperature and it not affect us? There's a lot to read with this one. Don't worry there are plenty of powerful visuals to help you along!
