The EPA announced Thursday that it rebooted its climate webpage, which includes information about how the climate is warming and how the regulatory agency seeks to curb heat-trapping greenhouse gas emissions. “Climate facts are back on EPA’s website where they should be,” the new EPA Administrator Michael Regan said in a statement.
