Trump Crackdown on “Politicized Science”: NASA Climate Division to be Stripped of Funding

“After all, there’s no ‘C’ in NASA.”

This (Tallbloke) quip becomes even more farcical when you drill down on the funding for ‘space’ Vs ‘climate’ over at NASA…

“NASA’s budget includes more than $2 billion for its Earth Science Mission Directorate, which works to improve climate modeling, weather prediction and natural hazard mitigation. NASA’s other functions, such as astrophysics and space technology, are only getting a mere $781.5 and $826.7 million, respectively, in the budget proposal.
Spending on the [climate] directorate has increased by 63 percent over the last eight years, making it the largest and fastest growing budget of any NASA science program. Over the same time period, the general NASA budget grew only by 10.6 percent — just enough to account for inflation.” – Mike Bastasch, Daily Caller

It appears that ‘cooling the past and warming the present’, to fit the global warming narrative, is a winning formula in the squeeze for taxpayer funds.

Nice work Gavin Schmidt.

Don’t let the door hit you on the way out…

“YOU’RE FIRED!”

Watts Up With That?
