Good Day World!
The Trump regime hates facts that interfere with it's efforts to protect Big Oil and associated other corporations.
A Short History:
On May 6, 1933 the German Student Association announced a nationwide "Action against the Un-German Spirit."
It was the first clarion call from the emerging Hitler regime that made a point of denying facts in order to promote Nazi propaganda.
"Where they burn books, they will also ultimately burn people." - Heinrich Heine
Here's What We Face Today:
A member of the National Security Council, William Happer, sought help from advisers to a think tank that disavows climate change to challenge widely accepted scientific findings on global warming.
Recognize that stench of burning knowledge? It's the same defiance of reality to promote political ideology that favors dictators like Hitler.
Hitler's cronies burned the books in public.
Trump's cronies are destroying knowledge behind closed doors by dismantling fact-based knowledge in numerous government agencies.
From the start Trump signaled his ignorance when he claimed global warming was a Chinese conspiracy. It got worse as his administration systematically set about denying any scientific knowledge in favor of polluting corporations.
Trump also solidified his place as one of the stupidest leaders in the world when he withdrew America from the Paris Climate Accord that Obama had already signed on to.

I take heart from the fact that when Trump is gone, a lot of the damage he's inflicted on government agencies and with our allies can be reversed by a new administration.
That is, if the next president is a democrat, and Trump is consigned to the trash heap of history.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
