The Agriculture Department quashed the release of a sweeping plan on how to respond to climate change that was finalized in the early days of the Trump administration, according to a USDA employee with knowledge of the decision.

Top officials, however, decided not to release the plan and told staff members to keep it for internal use only, the employee told POLITICO. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity out of fear of retribution.

1. Trump is working to destroy America from the inside in order to pay off Putin

This is insanity. 10s and thousand of acres were not planted in America this
year because of climate change.
