References to Climate Changed Removed from White House Website As Soon As Trump Took Office

It's not unusual for the official website of The White House to undergo changes as the transfer of power occurs as it does on Inauguration Day, but one such change is leaving many people feeling uncomfortable.

As expected, the moment Donald Trump was sword in as the 45th President of the United States, changed to reflect the country's new commander-in-chief.

One glaring difference happens to be the removal of any mention of climate change.

Just yesterday, as Barack Obama was still the President, Obama had a dedicated climate change page with news of a joint announcement with China, Advancing American Energy, and Our Environment links.

Now the web address is an empty white page that says "The requested page 'energy/climate-change' could not be found."

The website, under Donald Trump, only mentions the Climate Change Act on one page, saying President Trump will be eliminating it.

In addition, searching the website for "global warming" returns no results:

On Inside EPA, an article posted on January 17, 2017 mentions that "the incoming Trump administration's EPA transition team intends to remove non-regulatory climate data from the agency's website, including references to President Barack Obama's June 2013 Climate Change Action Plan" among other climate-related materials.
