Trump Has Broad Power to Block Climate Change Report 17.8.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Earlier this month, someone involved in the government's latest report on climate change provided The New York Times with a copy of the version submitted to the Trump administration for final approval. The main intent of the leak, according to several people tracking the report, was to complicate any attempt to suppress the study or water down its findings.

The report was submitted in late June and the Trump administration has broad authority to review its findings. Any one of a number of government agencies can block its release, which is ultimately subject to presidential review. Some of the scientists involved in preparing the document expressed concern that it might never see the light of day. ...

On CNN, Schlapp Calls Out Media Double Standard on Abortion vs. Climate 'Science' 9.8.2017 NewsBusters
Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's New Day on CNN to discuss polling showing that many Americans do not trust President Donald Trump, after the issue of Trump not believing in the global warming theory preferred by liberals was raised, the American Conservative Union's Matt Schlapp got into a heated exchange as he called out host Chris Cuomo for discounting science on the issue of when human life begins. Schlapp: "It's about science. And guess what, you're wrong on the science, many of you who believe that people on the pro-life side aren't looking at the science of it. Come on, the science is on my side of the unique human nature of every unborn child." In spite of the fact that a human embryo fits the scientific definition of a living being from the moment of conception, Cuomo insisted the issue is "not about science" as he responded: "It's not about science -- it's about ethics, religion, and morality, is what abortion's about. It's not about science." After insisting "Nobody's making abortion about ...

Nets Freak Over Climate Study, Trump’s ‘Lack of Curiosity’ 9.8.2017 NewsBusters
7:07:     CBS Graphic: Climate Change Crisis  MARGARET BRENNAN: The Trump administration is studying a draft report on climate change that was leaked to the New York Times. The research by 13 federal agencies says it's possible to attribute some extreme weather to climate change. They say average U.S. temperatures have risen rapidly since 1980 and are now the warmest in 1,700 years. Major Garrett is near the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Major, good morning.  MAJOR GARRETT: Good morning. President Trump's skepticism about the link between global warming and greenhouse gas emissions is well known. Now, this report awaits White House release. And the lack of comment from officials here and from those at some of the relevant federal agencies about this report’s startling conclusions suggest not just skepticism but, at least initially, a lack of curiosity.  DONALD TRUMP: Obama's talking about all of this with the global warming and a lot of it's a hoax.  GARRETT: Mr. Trump has a history ...
