The Trump administration war against science

The Trump administration is reportedly stepping up its war against climate science by forcing scientists to omit key details from a major report

The Trump administration is stepping up its war against measures to address climate change, according to The New York Times.
The administration reportedly plans to prevent the National Climate Assessment, a report funded by the federal government, from assessing worst-case scenarios in its four-year reports.
The US Geological Survey will also be made to change its modeling to project only until 2040, not a century ahead, as in previous assessments, The Times said.
"What we have here is a pretty blatant attempt to politicize the science — to push the science in a direction that's consistent with their politics," Philip B. Duffy, the president of the Woods Hole Research Center, told The Times.

"What we have here is a pretty blatant attempt to politicize the science — to push the science in a direction that's consistent with their politics," Philip B. Duffy, the president of the Woods Hole Research Center, who served on a National Academy of Sciences panel that reviewed the government's most recent National Climate Assessment, told The Times.

"It reminds me of the Soviet Union."
