Three climate-related tweets sent out by Badlands National Park have been deleted after they went viral on Twitter, sparking debate over whether the park was defying the Trump administration.
The South Dakota park posted tweets Tuesday that accurately quoted climate science data, including the current record-setting high concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. President Donald Trump has called climate change a hoax.
They came the same day that news circulated that the Trump administration had instituted a temporary media blackout at the EPA.
The tweets were shared thousands of times, and the Democratic National Committee circulated the message by email with the subject line ‘‘Resist.’’
The tweets came just three days after the Interior Department briefly suspended its Twitter accounts after the park service retweeted photos about turnout at Trump’s inauguration. The accounts were reactivated the next day.
The park service could not be reached for comment.
