All References To Climate Change Were Just Deleted From The White House Website

Submitted by: fancylad 2 months ago Science

Just in case you're wondering why WhiteHouse.gov's page on climate change is gone, it's because Trump's in, and all references to global warming are out.

Obama's page on climate change was replaced with a page entitled An America First Energy Plan that doesn't even mention climate change. It does say this though: "President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule."

And on that note, if you're looking for the old pages on LGBT rights, civil rights, and health care, those pages are gone too.

The page on civil rights was replaced with this page -- Standing Up For Our Law Enforcement Community. It focuses on police force and includes this incorrect statement: "In our nation's capital, killings have risen by 50 percent.

If any one of the fucking morons in Trump's regime Googled "Homicides DC 2015 2016" like I did, they'd have found the second search result from the Washington Post that states in crystal clear stats that homicides in D.C. were down in 2016 over 2015.

A bit long but convincing those who have been duped that they have been duped is usually a lot harder than duping them in the first place.  A complete history of "the sky is falling" global warming hoax.  Remember folks...most of you weren't even born when this all began.

It is now, and always was obvious this government will be there to enrich Trump and his cronies- anything else is inline with the far right christian wet dream. Its very very sad.... especially now it seems Russia is looking to move into northern Europe- which means war. Seenty years of peace in Europe- gond to service a rich egomaniacs drive.

I'm sorry that all you people just lost the only places to  get your news about  the weather and gay news if we are all going to drown, burn up and die of aids , there is no shortage of sights that will tell you that. Its a given that gays, or any one different from you should be treated with respect Do we really need a government web sight for that. And just because the last administration though global warming was all our fault does not mean this one does, regardless of what you say the science is not final. And tomorrow there may be a new sight they are just redoing it, Give it a break  its only the first day and a weekend at that.

"As a Conservative, Evangelical Republican,..The fact of the matter is our lifestyles are destroying this planet, we do need radical change in the way we choose to live, and we are responsible for the warming of our planet..Perhaps most alarming of all is our apathy in the face of unequivocal evidence that we are ruining this planet. For all the right reasons it should be us, the followers of the Creator God, who should be raising the alarm. Even though some environmentalists are liberal Democrats - caring for the environment is not a political issue, it is a moral issue." - Dr. Scott Rodin

I asked you to point out on the website (WhiteHouse.gov, remember?) any specific instances to support your stance.

YOU, instead, post his twitter account claiming 'tryant in chief', and I obligingly go to his twitter feed and litteraly the first tweet it: "Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy. Even if I don't always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views."  (oh horrors!! What a tyrant!)

megrendel You honestly believe he wrote that?  When Trump is tweeting it's full of grammatical errors, missed punctuation and seems like normal texting.  When it's composed someone took his twitter away and posts for him.  I'm basing this on only his history, I don't know it for a fact but I know it.  It's pretty clear to anyone with half a brain and wants to use it.

Even if you assume he wrote that, when you look at the other shit he's wrote how do you not go does he have schizophrenia? He goes from perfect grammar to incoherent babbling when he's insulted?  In either case one of those two things should bother you to some degree.

megrendel Keep reading below...there is a certainly cause for alarm when entire sections of what our country was based on are removed from the national website.  Just because there is not direct links or sites that support what I said doesn't mean by silently removing the ones I specified they are not doing something awful.  That in and of itself show this party will no longer support those groups.  Please click the links in my comment below to see the wonderful 404 error pages for these historic things we accomplished.  Our new guy in the driver seat has been using Twitter as his platform of choice to conduct public addresses, it is perfectly appropriate for me to use that as a means of supporting my argument.  Oh, and here is a running list (currently at 305) of Tweets this guy has slung negatively toward many, many people, places and groups:

On the flip-side, nor does it mean they ARE doing something awful.

Again, proof!  WhiteHouse.gov reflects the current administration's priorities. It's not WikiGovernment where all government programs, opinions and statements are stored. It's simply a list of the current administrations priorities.

Lack of a priority does not constitute 'awful things' for the subjects that are no longer there. It just means the previous administrations priorities are not the current administrations priorities. And, quite frankly, the previous administration's priorities is one of the REASONS we now have the current administration.

He's not 'erasing' anything except to replace the previous administration's priorities with his own.  You may not have realized we elected a new government, and as someone once said 'Elections have consequences'.

megrendel Oh and before you "want proof" of " Corporations over People" See thezigrat comment below concerning federal lands (which I hold dear to my heart as one of our country's greatest qualities) and how that they are now open to fracking. mining and drilling.  In addition, this change he made from how homeowner mortgages can operate:

http://fortune.com/2017/01/21/donald-trump-mortgage-bills/

In addition to that he has limited FHA loans, which is how I was able to purchase my home several years ago.  All of this gives power to the banks over the land/home owner.  Yep, this guy is totally for the people.  Federal lands and parks...nothing but resources to line the pockets of his Exxon buddy.  No longer something for us to cherish and preserve.  Fuck the Earth, she's just another pussy to grab right?

kalron27 No, you didn't. Sorry. You pointed at 'mean things he's said'.

And my 'burden of proof' is proving a negative?  Funny.   But here we go.

Do you have proof of any legislation he has proposed to limit LGBT/women's rights or any freedoms?   No.

Do you have proof of any executive orders he has enacted to limit LGBT/women's rights or any freedoms?   No.

The ONLY thing you have so far that he's done is the aforementioned reversing of Obama's rate reduction of FHA loans.  Thus forcing first time homeowners to pay A QUARTER OF A PERCENTAGE POINT more of their own mortgages.  In the process, it means there is a less chance of the taxpayers having to foot the bill of a bailout.

Now, as a taxpayer, I appreciate that. 

Get ready for more of Obama's executive orders to be reversed. As they should be.

Jobs created by presidents starting at Regan:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jobs_created_during_U.S._presidential_terms#/media/File:Job_Growth_by_U.S._President_-_v1.png

I think Obama did pretty well considering he started after the biggest economic collapse since the great depression.

Chicago is basically a forest fire now, contained until it burns itself out.  Hard truth, there is no stopping the violence.  That money spent on the future of the planet is also Hard Truth.  No one wants to think about tomorrow, but we have done that for far to long.  Someone had to make the decision to do it.  It is not junk science and as I said, if you believe that then there is no convincing you otherwise.  You live in a different reality than I do.

Hey!  Who wants to join in on the betting pool for the correct date when the first journalist who disagrees with Herr President either gets put in jail or disappears in the middle of the night?  That would "allegedly" make him just like his "best buddy" in Russia!!

On the bright side of only feeding to the masses what you want them to know, i am thrilled about the prospect of the replacement for all school books that talks about how the president never used the restroom and how he saved the world from the filthy outsiders.  While this was already written by Kim Jong-il, Mister "Supreme Leader" President wouldn't be the first Trump to plagiarize something in the last few months (even though his wife claims the words were her own).

But long before that he would have gotten shows like Daily Show and Saturday Day Night Live cancelled like he did the Nightly Show. MSN and the networks start reporting Fox News word for word or have been sued into nonexistence by libel laws as were all the news papers. The internet becomes heavily censored regarding news and information except for Golden shower porn. Mann Conway elected to Supreme court . Cross dressing becomes Illegal as do gay marriage. Abortions banned after 3 weeks Term.  And criticizing Cheetos become a jail-able offense. All Hail the Trump and the New Era.

I need 6 more years to fully retire. What bugs me are liberals like you calling me all the things you did and you don't know me. Call me a racist. Nope, biracial granddaughter and two black sons in laws. Do prison ministry, mainly to blacks. I have been let down by my government but since I vote in all elections I'm entitled to bitch. Hell, I voted for Ben Carson so you can blow me with that argument.i don't have cable or satellite. I stream what I can but my favorite entertainment is books. I'm an old hippie , 61, who did the 60's and 70's in the East Village. I compost, garden, and recycle. I am a good steward of my personal environment but I choose to disagree with these scientists that have been caught fudging the numbers and luddites that want to stop me from using what I choose to use. Oil, gas, fracking, etc.I hold two undergraduate degrees and a masters so I'm not stupid. I don't give a shit who people sleep with or who they choose to marry. I do feel that if you have a dick you should go to the men's room no matter what you "feel" your gender is today. That comes from raising two daughters that would make sure you had to sit to pee if you ever came in on them while they were in the woman's room.
If Trump does even half of what he said he would we will so eclipse the last 8 years it wont even be funny and I might actually be able to enjoy my retirement.
So to finish off this little rant, to you and your ilk, YOU are the problem in our country today. If I disagree with you I'm a........., fill in the blank, but when you get called out all we get is a hurrumph and I'm the only one who can be right. So fuck you very much and have a miserable day.

I'm not dumb. I was in the Coast Guard in the 70's and 80's and we were doing environmental protection and prosecution back then. I was stationed in NJ, the worlds biggest smelly hole. Remember what George Carlin said, Kiss your girlfriend where it stinks, take her to NJ. 
The protection of our environment is on the top of the needs of the world today. However when you have scientists putting forth proven BS about AGW, fracking, the companies of the world are going to kill us with GMO foods and on and on, nobody wins. Look at the ANWAR debate that has been going on for how many years now. There's so much oil there that it would literally reduce costs of gas and fuel oil 25%. The area to be drilled is less than 10% of the total ANWAR area. Can we hold Big Oil's balls to the fire if they fuck up drilling? Yes we can. Can we fix their fuck ups if the screw up? Yes we can. If you head on out to where the Exxon Valdeze screwed the pooch, today you find a thriving environment. Why? Because we roasted Exxon's balls and made them pay. Should we trust companies who's entire exsistance is to make a profit? Nope. But should we do due diligence in determining what they are telling us is BS? Bet your bippy. But the "Fact Checkers" need to be independent of the left or right, independent of the government or industries involved, and most of all subject to peer review.
