Its Official. The President Elect is a Dickhead

Post  dirge on Fri Nov 25, 2016 12:19 am

Donald Trump has been a critic of the concept of climate change in the past, and it appears his administration will reflect his skepticism. A report from the Guardian indicates Trump will eliminate all climate change related research conducted by NASA.

The report cites a senior advisor to President-elect Trump, who said the move would be part of a crackdown on “politicized science.”


The decision could spell an end to NASA’s massive network of satellites that provide significant amounts of data regarding weather and climate. According to the agency’s budget estimates, it expects to increase its spending on earth science research to nearly $2 billion in 2017.

In place of the in-depth information gathering on the earth’s climate, the Trump administration would shift the focus of NASA back to space. This would represent a considerable change of emphasis for NASA, which has decreased its overall spending on space exploration while partnering with commercial companies like SpaceX and Virgin Galactic. NASA is estimated to spend $2.8 billion on space exploration next year

its better to spend the money on space exploration to get these eggs out of the one basket.
