Short thread.
1. I didn't realize how badly Trump has eviscerated access to federal #climate data, so I went and looked at the USGS site.
2. In December, there were 5,932 climate science items linked there (9 were just pictures). Today there are 416 and 292 are just pictures.
3. In December 2016, 320 of those items were links to #climate data. Today, 0 links to data. 5,271 were web links. Now, 0 web links.
4. And the USGS "Effects of #Climate Change" webpage had 2,825 items in December. Today, that page has zero items.
5. Here is a summary table showing December 2016 and today: USGS #Climate Change webpage resources.
6. Here is the same summary table for the USGS "Effects of #Climate Change" webpage resources, now eliminated.
7. Finally, these comparisons come from archived pages at the Wayback Machine. But archived pages are no substitute for real public access.
