EPA Climate Change Website by Obama Administration

On April 29, 2017, the Trump Administration archived the existing EPA Climate Change Website in preparation for creating its own page more in tune with the current administration's thinking about climate change. Since this administration is in a state of denial about the overwhelming scientific consensus on climate change, we can no longer expect to get the truth from whatever site the EPA puts up. I'm posting the front page of the archived version because I suspect that once the new page is up and running the old one will no longer be available. As the following warning posted on the archived site says, there are no longer any updates to this site, but it's better than nothing or a pack of lies.Another problem is that the links on this page may stop working--but then they may still be OK. Even if the links don't work, at least this page will show how much or how little of the science of climate change, including harm it is expected to cause and the remedies for it, are ignored in the new page.

This is the archived Climate Change Website, of which the following is a copy

This is not the current EPA website. To navigate to the current EPA website, please go to www.epa.gov. This website is historical material reflecting the EPA website as it existed on January 19, 2017. This website is no longer updated and links to external websites and some internal pages may not work. More information »
