"Interior Climate Advisory Group Died Quietly"

"A climate change science advisory group assembled by the Obama-era Interior Department is dead for now. If it's revived by the Trump administration, it will likely have a new mission.

The Advisory Committee on Climate Change and Natural Resource Science was established in 2013 to offer advice to the Interior secretary about climate change. Its 25 members included federal scientists, state experts, environmentalists and business representatives.

But that group is now in limbo. A scheduled meeting planned for April was canceled. The panel's charter was allowed to quietly expire in June. And the committee's website refers to the group in past tense."
