The Trump administration has banned seven words and phrases for the Center of Disease control (CDC) for next year’s budget papers. These include: science-based, transgender, diversity, entitlement, vulnerable, fetus, and evidence-based.
Last March the same administration eliminated the word “science” from the EPA’s website mission statement. The word was changed to the phrase, “economically and technologically achievable”. Three pages of the EPA’ s website about “climate change” were also taken down.
During the same month, Scott Pruitt, the nation’s top environmental official, told CNBC that “measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do and there’s tremendous disagreement during the same month about the degree of impact, so no, I would not agree that it’s a primary contributor to the global warming that we see.”
Ignoring science will not make science go away.
The Trump administration seems to have forgotten one word they forgot to censor. From now on, I propose that we are not allowed to write or say the word penis. Instead, I am hereby instituting the new phrase, “the male genital organ that transfers semen and eliminates urine.”
