In the days immediately following President Donald Trump’s inauguration, when the world was in need of a climate change defender, a few National Park Service Twitter accounts epically rose to the challenge.
The rebellious Badlands National Park Twitter account went rogue in January, fighting the president’s climate change denial by sharing environmental facts.
We’ve now learned that in addition to the positive response on social media, the staff at the national park was flooded with messages of love in the form of handwritten postcards and emails from hundreds of thankful supporters around the country. The emails and postcards were among other documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.
According to the documents, the story isn’t quite as heroic as the email and letter writers believed. A former seasonal employee at Badlands National Park was responsible for sending the climate change tweets, the records show.
