Climate Change Summit Cancelled by CDC at 11th Hour

A Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Summit scheduled for February that might have examined climate change as it relates to health issues was canceled just before President Donald Trump’s Inauguration last week

An anonymous employee at the nonprofit National Indian Health Board, the CDC partner hosting the event, said the cancellation came in “the 2nd week of January.”

US President Donald Trump is a vocal critic of whether human activity affects climate change, has vowed to take another look at America’s commitment to the Paris climate change agreement.

President Trump expressed skepticism about global warming and climate change in the past.

It is unclear whether the CDC’s climate change event was canceled because of President Trump’s direct or indirect influence.

“Sometimes the agency is subject to external political pressure; sometimes the agency self-censors or preemptively stays away from certain issues,” former CDC official Howard Frumkin said. “Climate change has been that issue historically.”
