Back in November, the official Twitter account of Joshua Tree National Park sent out a series of tweets that included facts about climate change in general and how it\u0026#039;s affecting the immense park in southern California.But that apparently did not sit well with Trump-appointed Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke.According to The Hill, citing \u0022two sources close to the situation,\u0022 Zinke summoned the superintendent of the park, David Smith, to Washington and chided him for the content of those tweets.The scolding didn\u0026#039;t include disciplinary action, the reporting notes, but served to send a message that under the Trump administration sending out content that conveys scientific consensus of the climate crisis is a no-no.From The Hill:One source said Smith \u0022got a trip to the woodshed,\u0022 and described his one-on-one meeting with Zinke as \u0022highly unusual.\u0022Another source said Zinke expressed concern with the tweets during the meeting, and told Smith \u0022no more climate tweets.\u0022Other sources with knowledge of the meeting confirmed that Zinke wanted to stop tweets about climate change.Among the Nov. 8 tweets that were reportedly objectionable include one that said \u0022An overwhelming consensus—over 97%—of climate scientists agree that human activity is the driving force behind today\u0026#039;s rate of global temperature increase. Natural factors that impact the climate are still at work, but cannot account for today\u0026#039;s rapid warming.\u0022 Another stated: \u0022Park scientists know that climate change will effect the desert ecosystem, but they don\u0026#039;t yet know what exactly will change. The data they are gathering about what\u0026#039;s currently happening will ID areas of special interest and assist management decisions for planning \u0026amp; protection.\u0022As the climate rapidly changes, habitable ranges will shift. Species not able to keep pace will perish. Current models predict the suitable habitat for Joshua trees may be reduced by 90% in the future with a 3°C (5.4°F) increase in average temperature over the next 100 years. pic.twitter.com/Ys6bpcxq6g— Joshua Tree NPS (@JoshuaTreeNPS) November 8, 2017Emissions from burning of fossil fuels have increased the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. This amplifies the greenhouse effect.Human activity is affecting the land, oceans, \u0026amp; atmosphere, altering the balance of the climate system \u0026amp; causing global changes.— Joshua Tree NPS (@JoshuaTreeNPS) November 8, 2017These refugia are areas of special interest to park managers as places to concentrate future conservation efforts.— Joshua Tree NPS (@JoshuaTreeNPS) November 8, 2017A spokesperson for Zinke denied the characterization of the meeting.However, Zinke has made clear the department under his direction will not prioritize climate change but will push to shrink the size of national monuments and boost the interests of the fossil fuel industry.
