White House proposes steep budget cut for NOAA

Trump is keeping his word


The Trump administration is seeking to slash the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s budget by 17 percent, according to The Washington Post.

The Office of Management and Budget proposed sharp reductions in specific areas such as NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research, which would lose $126 million, or 26 percent, of the funds it has under the current budget.

The biggest proposed cut is from NOAA’s National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service. Researchers there were behind a study suggesting that there has been no recent slowdown in the rate of climate change.

The OMB also asked the Commerce Department to provide information about how much it would cost to lay off employees.

  1. Pity its not 97% with restitution for the fraudulent data they have produced over the last 30 years.

  2. THis is becoming a common tactic. Make a false claim to for the Whitehouse to deny it. The whitehouse should just not comment.

  3. I can only hope that Donald’s good work to bring truth, realism, science and realism into climate will spread around the world to kill off the climate change cancer. If he achieves nothing else during his presidential term the world will owe him thanks.

    • No, quite the opposite, Both NOAA and NASA has discounted the Sun spot record as they insist the TSI (of the Sun) only varies 1% over a solar cycle, so it isn’t that which cause the 172 year cyclic variations in the earth’s climate.
      Fortunately the Sun is monitored on an international basis although, many in the solar community are wedded to the AGW mantra.
      They forget to mention our Sun is a UV variable star who output is moderated by its collection of Jovian Gas giants, and that moderation of UV can be over 16%. UV is what drives our atmosphere and the movement of warm/air/water and energy from the tropics to the poles.
