>> As Greenpeace activists unfurled their protest banners outside the White House Wednesday, another kind of resistance was springing up. In the Twitter feeds of National Park accounts, following reports that the Trump administration wanted to muzzle information coming out of certain government agencies, handling environmental and human health, some National Parks defying the order and speaking out, on Twitter about climate change.
From the Golden Gate, a graphic showing 2016 as the hottest year on record. From the Redwood and National State Parks, arguing more redwoods would mean less climate change. From the United States Geological Survey, on how climate patterns are transforming wetlands. And Badlands tweets, since deleted, on the unprecedented amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
On Wednesday, White House spokesman Sean Spicer denying the reports, that the administration forced the agency to delete those tweets.>> They haven't been directed by us to do anything.>> On Tuesday, the EPA telling Reuters that White House officials asked the agency, to take down the Climate Change page on its website.
But the White House said it was simply reviewing the website. The Trump White House has signaled it will be no friend of environmental protection, appointing a head of the EPA who's repeatedly sued the Agency. And pledging to roll back regulations and boost coal production. Other government agencies also appearing to flout the administration's sentiments, as Trump is expected to sign an order restricting immigration from seven Muslim countries, the Department of Defense tweeting a story of a refugee, who became a US Marine.
