Internal watchdog to probe Trump officials who cast doubt on climate science

Read the full story in The Hill.

An internal government watchdog is investigating after two Trump administration officials apparently published papers purporting to be from the White House that promoted climate change skepticism. 

“After careful consideration, we decided to review this matter further,” the inspector general’s office at the Commerce Department wrote to Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii). 

Hirono asked for the investigation along with several other Democrats.

The New York Times first reported the probe on Friday.
