EPA Acts Responsibly by Relaunching Climate Science and Policy Website

Agency returns to a clear focus on educating the public about climate change.


The Environmental Protection Agency reinstated its website centered on climate science and policy on Thursday. This information was removed from the EPA website by the previous administration. This relaunch is a strong signal that the Biden administration will restore the role of science in protecting our communities and public health.

Andrea McGimsey, senior director for Environment America Research and Policy Center's Global Warming Solutions campaign, issued the following statement:

"Communities across our nation are facing tremendous risks from climate change. Only when we're armed with the facts about what we face now and in the coming years -- and have information on what we can do to make a difference on climate change -- can we make the best decisions possible to protect the vibrancy of our communities and a stable future for our children and grandchildren.

"By empowering Americans with the best scientific evidence available, the Environmental Protection Agency is providing a critical service that aligns squarely with its mission to protect our environment and public health."

With Environment America, you protect the places that all of us love and promote core environmental values, such as clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and clean energy to power our lives. We're a national network of 29 state environmental groups with members and supporters in every state.
