An official at the Interior Department inserted misleading and false information about climate change into at least nine agency reports. The New York Times reviewed the reports and found multiple false claims, including the idea that increased carbon dioxide is beneficial for the Earth’s atmosphere, and denial that there is a scientific consensus the Earth is heating up. The man who pushed the agency to add the lies to official reports is Indur Goklany, who was promoted in 2017 after Trump came into office. Goklany has represented the U.S. during high-level climate negotiations at the United Nations.
