Draining the Swamp

Jun 16, 2017

The Department of Energy is closing its Office of International Climate and Technology and eliminating 11 staff positions. The office was created in 2010. Staff members “worked with other countries in order to develop clean energy technology and reduce greenhouse gases.” A spokesman for the DOE said that the department was “looking for ways to consolidate the many duplicate programs that currently exist within DOE.” The closure of the office comes shortly after President Trump pulled America out of the Paris Climate agreement.
