I was recently informed (perhaps "kindly rebuked” is more accurate) for implying that the incoming administration had deliberately removed information on climate change from its web pages. I agree my statement that climate change was “removed” is perhaps extreme. With a new administration, much (perhaps all) web content is removed from the Whitehouse web site and archived in a publically accessible site. The old content is replaced with new content.
What I should have said is that climate change information, which was present on the old Whitehouse web site, is now completely *omitted* from the new Whitehouse web site.
Please understand that the petition asks that the Whitehouse *restore and maintain* climate change science on its web pages. It does not request that the adminstration use the same web pages, rather that it provides and maintains climate change information. I think this is a reasonable request.
Please excuse my faulty language.
