MARKEY WILL CALL ON TRUMP TO PROTECT CLIMATE SCIENTISTS

The White House should protect climate scientists from "politically motivated attacks," Sen. Edward Markey plans to say during an 11 a.m. press conference Wednesday morning in Boston.

In a media advisory, Markey's office wrote, "The New York Times today published a story about the scientists who feared their work on the Congressionally-mandated Draft U.S. Global Research Program Climate Science Special Report would be suppressed by the Trump administration. The findings of the draft report directly contradict assertions by members of the Trump administration and President Trump himself that climate change is not caused by humans and does not pose a threat. The authors of the report are awaiting permission from the Trump administration to release it."
