The First 100 Days and Counting Series
In the first report of its kind, EDGI has conducted an in-depth analysis of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under Administrator Scott Pruitt and the early days of the Trump administration

Archiving Government Data
Working with partners we preserve potentially vulnerable scientific data and web pages from EPA and DOE among other federal agencies.
Monitoring Federal Websites
We monitor changes to tens of thousands of environmental agency web pages to trace how data, information, and their presentation change.
Interviewing Federal Experts
We interview long-time federal employees to provide a human and nuanced perspective on impacts of the current administration on agencies.

Our work is made possible through grants and tax-deductible donations from the public.
We need your support!
