Climate change denial is not new

What is going to happen to Science in the USA with the new Trump Administration is not completely new: its neighbour nation to the north, Canada, had an almost complete decade of restrictions legislated by its former primer minister Stephen Harper that included restrictions of communications of top scientists to the press and also thrashing of entire scientific libraries. Canada was also the first country to leave the Kioto Conference resolutions, being at the start one of the first countries to support it.

It appears that Trump possibly will support only scientists and projects that will support his claims of no scientific evidence supporting the climate change.
