And after I'd shown that the State of Wisconsin's Department of Natural Resources had again scrubbed climate science information and links from its official web pages, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel found that similar deletions had whitewashed official Wisconsin Public Service Commission web pages.
I'd missed the depth of the long official Canadian crackdown on climate change research and publications which gratefully has been sent packing by the forward-thinking Trudeau government, so consider the Canadian experience a cautionary tale and a reason to fight government censorship - - scientific or otherwise - - wherever you find it:
Nine years of censorship
Canadian scientists are now allowed to speak out about their work — and the government policy that had restricted communications...
The crackdown on government scientists in Canada began in 2006, after Stephen Harper of the Conservative Party was elected prime minister. During the nine-year Harper administration, the government placed a priority on boosting the economy, in part by stimulating development and increasing the extraction of resources, such as petroleum from the oil sands in Alberta.
To speed projects along, the administration eased environmental regulations. And when journalists sought out government scientists to ask about the impacts of such changes, or anything to do with environmental or climate science, they ran into roadblocks.
