The Trump administration’s budget and infrastructure proposals are part of a single effort to gut bedrock environmental protections, give a free pass to polluters to boost their profits, and further imperil our climate and communities.
Great news! White House to withdraw nomination of climate denier Kathleen Hartnett White as CEQ head! Thanks for keeping the pressure on.
Just launched by Columbia University and the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund: The “Silencing Science Tracker,” an online tracker of the Trump administration’s crackdown on climate science. It already has 96 entries: Check it out.

“Several agencies have scrubbed climate information from their websites, and often not communicated why, according to a new report. In many cases, it’s unclear if the changes were mandated by Trump officials, self-censorship from career staff, or administrative tweaks without political motives.“
Kathleen Hartnett White is an uninformed, unqualified, and wholly unacceptable choice for a top White House environmental position. The Senate should reject this dangerous nominee.
The President is doubling down on climate denial by re-nominating Kathleen Hartnett White to lead the Council on Environmental Quality… Her first confirmation hearing performance would have been comical if it wasn’t downright terrifying.
