CDC cancels major climate change conference

A statement from the CDC said it was considering plans to reschedule the conference, though it also acknowledged it would have to do so with consideration to budget priorities and another climate change meeting to be hosted by the American Public Health Association later this year.

It said it had begun notifying conference participants of the cancellation on Dec. 22.

News of the meetings cancellation came just three days after President Trump formally took office.

 The newly-inaugurated president has repeatedly denied, or at least questioned, the notion that human activity is causing rapid shifts in the Earth’s climate, at one point calling the phenomenon a “hoax” propagated by China.

  1. CDC. Another giant bureaucracy that has wandered far away from its original purpose. Maybe they should get back to the reason that they were created and forget about pushing the latest leftist cause du jour. Looks like it may be another place where the new administration can make some massive budget cuts..........

  2. Friedman from the CDC is gone. He was incompetent or......
    corrupt. Trump is going to get rid of 75% of the destructive
    regulations which help force the manf. plants out of the
    country. Probably by design - globalism, don't you know.
    With the reduction of the regulations, this gives hope the
    coal plants will be realized.

  3. The CDC had outdated and inept responses to the Ebola outbreak and has ventured into climate change and gun control which is way beyond their competence. Fire all the employees and turn it over to the US Army medical corps in order to return to its original focus. indyjonesouthere

    1. A god start and I would give all civil servants the option of leaving or having their salaries cut in half. That should get rid of many and I been there done that. Like fishing, 10% of civil servants do 90% of the work.
