San Francisco has joined a dozen cities in posting federal climate change information online that the Trump administration removed from the internet, Mayor Ed Lee announced Sunday.
The Environmental Protection Agency reportedly removed the information in late April, prior to President Donald Trump announcing June 1 that he would withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate accord.
“Deleting federal webpages does not reset the scientific consensus that climate change is real,” Lee said in a statement. “The American people are entitled to the publically-funded EPA research on climate change.”
The San Francisco Department of Technology posted the information, including details of the basic science behind climate change, on the Open Gov website.
Cities including Portland, Houston and Atlanta also uploaded the information.
