Wisconsin state agencies are deleting talk of human-caused climate change from their website

Information on the science of human-caused climate change has begun to disappear from Wisconsin state government websites.

According to local news reports, both the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the Public Service Commission have either altered or removed web pages devoted to global warming in recent months. And some of these changes suggest the existence of a scientific debate about the causes of climate change.

In late December, blogger James Rowen pointed out a change in the wording of a state DNR web page devoted to climate change and the Great Lakes. The current version of the page reads, “As it has done throughout the centuries, the earth is going through a change. The reasons for this change at this particular time in the earth’s long history are being debated and researched by academic entities outside the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.”
