Boo-Hoo: Trump Has EPA Employees 'Coming to Work in Tears'
by Andrew Follett, The Daily Caller --
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) employees are reportedly arriving at work in tears because of President Donald Trump.
An anonymous EPA communications career employee told Pro-Publica that “more than a few friends were ‘coming to work in tears’ each morning as they grappled with balancing the practical need to keep their jobs with their concerns for the issues they work on.”
The Trump administration allegedly instructed the EPA to freeze all grants for projects, research on global warming, air quality monitoring and education, and instructed employees not to discuss the spending freeze outside the agency, according to reports earlier this week.
Trump also allegedly ordered the EPA to take down its global warming webpage, however, it is currently still up as of Saturday (Jan 28th). The page contains some links to EPA’s data on carbon dioxide (CO2) as well as other greenhouse gas emissions and lists the effects the agency says global warming will have. The site doesn’t host much of the data, however, and only aggregates links to it.
