It’s the latest inaccurate claim from the administration on the severity of the pandemic.
Prof. Katharine HayhoePress release from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy claims science + tech highlights of Trump's first term include "ending the covid-19 pandemic" and "taking action to understand and protect the environment."
The administration is imposing new limits on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that would undercut action against global warming.
Prof. Katharine HayhoeNOAA's chief scientist emailed new political appointees, asking them to acknowledge the agency's scientific integrity policy. (Politically appointed) chief of staff Erik Noble asked why he was sending it to them - then removed him from office.
Prof. Katharine HayhoeIt's icy and snowy outside - yes even in Texas - but our @TTUClimate Science by the Glass is online tonight, so pour a glass and join us at 5PM central from anywhere in the world for more on climate change + coronavirus as I step in for Emily Bailey.

Prof. Katharine HayhoeHeads up @theAGU scientists, it's the last day to cast your ballot for a slate with MANY women! As @DrRitaColwell explains so lucidly, having women in leadership is key to continuing to eradicate sexism in our fields. Please don't miss your chance to vote.
Prof. Katharine HayhoeMrs. Eunice Newton Foote (1819-1888) was a women's rights advocate & pioneering scientist. In 2020, @EarthSci_Info + @Roland_Jackson reanalyzed the data from her groundbreaking 1856 study to show you could estimate a climate sensitivity of 2-3C from it!
The global climate crisis will require us to transform the way we act, says His Holiness Pope Francis. Delivering a visionary TED Talk from Vatican City, the spiritual leader proposes three courses of action to address the world's growing...
