Nine scientists have been dismissed from the EPA’s 18-person Board of Scientific Counselors—ostensibly to include more voices from regulated industries, though the scientists say their work was apolitical and did not involve regulations. The US government has also postponed an important meeting scheduled for Tuesday to determine whether the country should or should not withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate change, a matter that President Donald Trump promised to decide this month.

There is much to applaud in President Trump’s decision to attack the Bashar Assad regime this week. It punished a regime that has engaged in war crimes against its own people. It upheld an international norm against chemical weapons.
