Dear Mr. Kanungo:
Attached is an extension letter due to unusual circumstances. The due date for your FOIA request is now March 23, 2017.
I am writing regarding your FOIA Request EPA-HQ-2017-003281 in which you seek the archive of epa.gov/climatechange.
Immediately following the 2017 Presidential inauguration, the agency received numerous FOIA requests regarding historic versions of the EPA website. To respond to these requests for information, EPA has re-posted a snapshot of the EPA website as it existed on January 19, 2017.
* This action is similar to the web snapshot taken of the previous administration's WhiteHouse.gov site that is publically available on the National Archives and Records Administration's web site.
* The EPA snapshot (19January2017Snapshot@epa.gov<mailto:19January2017Snapshot@epa.gov>) is now available on the current EPA web page in the footer, under "Discover," or from the "Frequently Requested Information" portion of the FOIA page.
The information provided in the January 19, 2017 Web Snapshot may provide the information you seek. Additionally, the information sought by your request was at the time of your request or currently is publicly available on EPA's website at the links set forth in your request. Because this information is publicly available, your request for this information is not subject to processing as a FOIA request. See 40 C.F.R. Part 2, Subpart A.
We hope this information is helpful to you and we appreciate your interest in EPA.
This letter concludes our response to your request. You may appeal this response by email at firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>, or by mail to the National Freedom of Information Office, U.S. EPA, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, N. W.

Appeals received after 5:00 pm EST will be considered received the next business day. The appeal letter should include the FOIA tracking number listed above. For quickest possible handling, the subject li ne of your email, the appeal letter, and its envelope, if applicable, should be marked "Freedom of Information Act Appeal."
