Scientists in the Energy Department are being questioned extensively by the Trump transition team. They're being asked about no less than 74 specific points, including: what role did you play in President Obama's Climate Action Plan? Jean Chemnick, who covers international climate policy for E&E News' Climatewire, says the questionnaire has serious implications for civil servants.
