"EPA Shutting Down Climate Adaptation Program"

"The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is shutting down a program at its headquarters that helps states and localities adapt to the effects of climate change, such as rising sea levels.

An EPA official said a team of four staffers within the EPA’s policy office who had worked on the adaptation responsibilities are being reassigned. But the official stressed that regional offices will continue their climate adaptation efforts.

It’s part of the EPA’s shift away from climate change programs, which President Trump previewed last month in his first budget request."
