Democrats demand answers from USDA on lack of climate science promotion


Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who’s also running for president, sent a letter to Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue expressing “deep concern and alarm” over the report. The Minnesota Democrat asked the department to explain its justification for not publicizing certain studies and to immediately release “any [Agricultural Research Service] study related to climate science that was ignored, downplayed, or its findings held back.”
