EPA chief working hard to make people stupid about climate change

Salon - Three recent reports showcase the extent of [EPA head] Pruitt's censorship efforts. The New York Times reported on Sunday that three EPA scientists were forced to cancel their scheduled appearances at a program hosted by the Narragansett Bay Estuary Program, in which the effects of climate change on the bay are to be discussed. Last week, Pruitt announced that he's banning any scientist who has received an EPA grant from advising the EPA. Friday, the Environmental Data & Governance Initiative reported that the EPA website that used to be titled “Climate and Energy Resources for State, Local, and Tribal Governments” has not only excised the word "climate" from its title, but that links to climate change resources have largely been deleted.
