On April 29th, the Trump administration erased all climate change information from the U.S. EPA website. Dane County wants to ensure that area residents remain well-informed about the impacts of climate change. To view the deleted climate change information, see the City of Chicago new webpage www.cityofchicago.org/climatechangeisreal, that preserves the former EPA climate change website that contains decades of work by climate scientists informing citizens about the basic science behind climate change and the impacts of increased greenhouse gas emissions on our weather.
In 2016, Governor Walker deleted all climate change information from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website. While many Republicans continue to deny basic science and experience, Dane County thinks you should have access to all of the information. Below is the climate change webpage taken down by Governor Walker and DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp.
WICCI formed in 2007 and is a partnership between the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the University of Wisconsin–Madison's Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies. The goal of WICCI is to assess and anticipate climate change impacts on Wisconsin's natural resources, ecosystems, regions and industries (including agriculture, tourism and other human activities) and develop and recommend adaptation strategies that can be implemented by businesses, farmers, public health officials, municipalities, wildlife managers and other stakeholders.
