Trump Didn't Even Have to Ask CDC to Cancel Climate Summit

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

In another signal of the anti-science chill that has descended upon federal government, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has quietly cancelled a long-planned climate summit in anticipation of its unpopularity within the Donald Trump administration.

This is a direct result of the politicization of government agencies.
Workers, afraid for their jobs, do not do what is right but what their political funders want.
NIST used to be respected. Now it is full of political hacks.
CDC, now a wholly owned subsidiary of agribusiness, used to be respected. Not anymore (and this was happening before Trump but is just getting worse).
