Leaked EPA Email Orders Employees to Mislead on Climate Change

HeadlineMar 30, 2018

The lowered emissions standards come as climate scientists have accused the EPA of making misleading statements about global warming. A leaked internal EPA email sent to communications staff by a senior official provides talking points to others at the agency, including the line, “While there has been extensive research and a host of published reports on climate change, clear gaps remain including our understanding of the role of human activity and what we can do about it.” In fact, some 97 percent of scientists who have written articles for peer-reviewed journals have concluded that climate change is real, caused by human activity, and is already causing devastating problems.
