WikiLeaks Vs. Trump Climate Change

WikiLeaks is taking on a new U.S. president this time. The whistleblower website vented its ire on Twitter Sunday on Donald Trump’s tax returns and now, it has taken on an even more contentious issue — climate change.

The organization on Wednesday offered its website as a platform for people looking to submit climate change research "at risk from the new U.S. administration."

On Thursday, it revealed that it was in possession of over 33,000 climate change-related documents, including secret congressional reports and global intelligence files.

WikiLeaks' revelation comes after the Trump administration deleted climate change-related pages from the White House website and reportedly told the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to remove a page on global warming from its website.

Trump has expressed skepticism about human caused climate change, both on his campaign trail and while he was the president–elect. Moreover, the deletion of climate change pages from the White House site has spread fears over whether relevant data on the EPA, NASA and websites of other government agencies is safe.

But the fact that WikiLeaks is offering its services to support scientists and environmentalists working on climate change is peculiar, since its publication of Hillary Clinton’s private data is what many allege got Trump elected.

WikiLeaks is not the only organization offering support to the scientific community working on climate change. A STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) community website called 314 action has come up as an advocate for climate change solutions and has urged President Trump to give scientists “a seat at the table”.
