Agency returns to a clear focus on educating the public about climate change
WASHINGTON — The Environmental Protection Agency reinstated its website centered on climate science and policy on Thursday. This information was removed from the EPA website by the previous administration. This relaunch is a strong signal that the Biden administration will restore the role of science in protecting our communities and public health.
Andrea McGimsey, senior director for Environment America’s Global Warming Solutions campaign, issued the following statement:
“Communities across our nation are facing tremendous risks from climate change. Only when we’re armed with the facts about what we face now and in the coming years — and have information on what we can do to make a difference on climate change — can we make the best decisions possible to protect the vibrancy of our communities and a stable future for our children and grandchildren.
“By empowering Americans with the best scientific evidence available, the Environmental Protection Agency is providing a critical service that aligns squarely with its mission to protect our environment and public health.”
