I think what flusters people about this particular story is not the notion of "censorship" per se. Rather, I think people are annoyed by the refusal of the Administration not only to publicly discuss human-induced climate change, but also to acknowledge any facts that might support that thesis. It makes it seem like they're pulling a "maybe if we ignore it, it will all go away".

It also hearkens back to the Global Gag Rule (re: abortion) placed on doctors working overseas and receiving government money, and also to numerous firings that have taken place of people who have expressed personal opinions contrary to the policies of the Administration. So the government has shown a real willingness in recent years to try to censor what professionals do in capacities outside their strictly governmental roles as well.
