First, the United States left the Paris Climate Accord — a pact that would have caused the U.S. to spend trillions to only maybe cool the earth 0.3 degrees.
And now, under the leadership of Department of Energy Secretary Rick Perry, offices related to global-warming and faulty-science are being eliminated.
NY Times reports:
The Energy Department is closing an office that works with other countries to develop clean energy technology, another sign of the Trump administration’s retreat on climate-related activities after its withdrawal from the Paris agreement this month.
The 11 staff members of the Office of International Climate and Technology were told this month that their positions were being eliminated, according to current and former agency employees. The office was formed in 2010 to help the United States provide technical advice to other nations seeking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Word of the closing came right before Rick Perry, the energy secretary, attended the latest Clean Energy Ministerial meeting in Beijing on June 6 to 8, agency employees said.
