The White House website's page on climate change just disappeared

21 Jan 2017

"The requested page "/energy/climate-change" could not be found."

That is all that remains of the White House's webpage on climate change, at least at the official White House page. The Obama team moved Information about climate change previously hosted on the White House site to www.obamawhitehouse.gov. The White House website was updated immediately after Donald Trump assumed the nation's highest office. The president has long said he doubts whether global climate change is real, and there now appears to be no reference to it on whitehouse.gov.

In the section of the updated website dedicated to issues, the Trump team has highlighted six topics, including "America First Energy Policy." The policy page touts Trump's plan to tap oil and gas reserves and to revive the coal industry, but does not mention renewable energy. "For too long, we've been held back by burdensome regulations on our energy industry. President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule," the page says.
Trump's plan to revive the coal industry includes removing/watering-down the clean-air regulations that pertain to coal-fired industrial plants.

Climate Change Study Canceled Because of Impact of Climate Change
June 16, 2017 - The University of Manitoba has terminated its project to study climate change in the Hudson Bay area because of hazardous ice conditions caused by a change in the climate.
The canceled part of the $17 million, four-year study involved the Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker Amundsen, which was scheduled to sail through the area making scientific measurements and observations.

But the southward flow of Arctic sea ice, caused by climate change, led to unusually severe ice conditions along the northern coast of Newfoundland, where the Amundsen is involved in marine safety operations. That meant the ship could not depart for Hudson Bay, a huge ocean basin in northeastern Canada, in time to meet the research objectives.

Forty scientists from five Canadian universities planned to study the impact of climate change on Arctic marine and coastal ecosystems. However, the reminder of the study will continue, and scientists say results so far indicate that climate change already affects environments and communities, not only in the north but also in the south of Canada.
