Trump silences government scientists with gag orders

EPA gag orderLess than a week after the inauguration, the Trump administration has already gagged employees at two federal agencies. Memos obtained by various media outlets show that scientists at the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Agriculture are now blocked from communicating with the public and the press.

At the EPA, whose grants and contract budget have also been frozen, employees are not allowed to talk about this change to reporters or on social media. The EPA is responsible for passing and upholding regulations on issues such as clean air and water and the carbon emissions responsible for global warming. The nominee for EPA head, Scott Pruitt, has made a career out of suing the EPA and trying to weaken its environmental regulations.

New moth species named for Donald Trump's hair

Neopalppa donaldtrimpiScientists have named a newly discovered species of moth after Donald Trump.  Researchers named the moth after the President-elect because the new moth, in adult form, boasts a series of yellowish-white scales on its head, resembling the hair of Trump.

The moth, Neopalpa donaldtrumpi, was formally introduced in the latest issue of the journal ZooKeys. It is one of two species within a genus of twirler moths.

N. donaldtrumpi and its relative are both found throughout Southern California, as well as across the border in Baja California, Mexico.
