Summary: This article describes a Trump advisor’s claims that climate change is a hoax, environmentalists threaten freedom by limiting business, and environmentalists and scientists want to promote climate change theory to enrich themselves via solar panel sales and research grants.

Relevance: The article describes the arguments that the Trump administration will continue to present as “alternative facts” to attempt to turn the attention away from science and the facts about the dangers and potential consequences of climate change.

Actions: Media literacy; Focus on the suppression of science/facts as an issue rather than the “alternative facts” coming from the current administration.
