Donal Trump And NASA, Will They Ever Agree On Climate Change?
In one of his statements reported by Traveller24, Bob Walker, a senior Trump campaign adviser, has explained that there was no need for NASA to do what he has previously described as "politically correct environmental monitoring. As per Walker, the Trump administration plans to cut earth science research at NASA and has reportedly suggested that the agency would lose the more than 40% of its funding dedicated to understanding our own planet. He added that in terms of the funding, it would allegedly be turned toward exploration and deep space research instead.
Furthermore, The Guardian has revealed that this plan of action of the Trump administration would mean the elimination of NASA's world-renowned research into temperature, ice, clouds and other climate phenomena.NASA's network of satellites provide a wealth of information on climate change, with the Earth science division's budget set to grow to $2bn next year. By comparison, space exploration has been scaled back somewhat, with a proposed budget of $2.8bn in 2017.
It was found that Trump had previously claimed that climate change is a hoax idea which was initially started by the Chinese, even though there are some connections between human activity and the climate itself. Moreover, Walker has further added that the doubt over the role of human activity in climate change "is a view shared by half the climatologists in the world.
As of the present time, NASA has allegedly appointed two officials, Tom Cremins and Jolene Meidinger, to lead the transition to the new administration. However, the president-elect's team has yet to formally review the space agency.
