Dana Hunter, writing for Scientific American on the National Park Service’s resistance against the Trump administration’s gag order:
Not long after Badlands was brought into line, anonymous employees
of the NPS went rogue. They created the AltUSNatlParkService
account and, after retweeting a particularly provocative image
from the Badlands account along with some climate change data,
announced their intent in no uncertain terms:
Mr Trump, you may have taken us down officially. But with
scientific evidence & the Internet our message will get out.
These federal employees speaking out now understand that science
is not subordinate to politics, that truth is essential, and
transparency vital to a functioning democracy. They are risking
their careers to ensure the public is kept informed. They’re
exercising their free speech rights to ensure we know the truth.
I have never been prouder of our National Park Service than
I am now.
