The Trump administration has refused to publicize dozens of government-funded studies that carry warnings about the effects of climate change, defying a longstanding practice of touting such findings by the Agriculture Department’s acclaimed in-house scientists.

 

The studies range from a groundbreaking discovery that rice loses vitamins in a carbon-rich environment — a potentially serious health concern for the 600 million people world-wide whose diet consists mostly of rice — to a finding that climate change could exacerbate allergy seasons to a warning to farmers about the reduction in quality of grasses important for raising cattle.

 

ll of these studies were peer-reviewed by scientists and cleared through the non-partisan Agricultural Research Service, one of the world’s leading sources of scientific information for farmers and consumers.

All should read the support article very carefully. It shows part of what is going on. Here is how Trump will end his problem with these truth tellers. As I posted in here the other day. The Agriculture Dept. is moving this agency from DC to Kansas City MO. quickly. The employees have 30 days to tell the Dept. if they will move or leave the dept. A lot of them will leave the dept. rather than make the move, and that is what Trump is counting on. The employees have formed a Union to try and fight this. The Civil Service laws govern some of this as to severance etc. (This is one reason why Trump wants to get rid of the Civil Service Laws.) Next years budget shows a 50% cut in funding for this area. They will have the move made before the end of this Budget year as that helps keep Congress out of this.  Here you see Dictator Trump in operation. Now all do something to stop Dicator Trump. Get him and all with an R behind their name out of Office in 2020.
