E.P.A. Dismisses Members of Major Scientific Review Board

The Environmental Protection Agency has dismissed at least five members of a major scientific review board, the latest signal of what critics call a campaign by the Trump administration to shrink the agency’s regulatory reach by reducing the role of academic research.

Could making climate change a 'pro-life' issue bring conservatives on board?
The message is targeted at evangelicals and other conservatives, but many Americans do not see climate change as a moral issue, at least not yet.
