Don’t let Trump dump essential NASA and NOAA programs

In 2017, most climate scientists would tell you that “any weakening of our technological, scientific and human capabilities related to weather and climate” will place American lives and property at risk. Yet the Trump administration recently announced that it was ready to take that risk by unveiling almost $990 million dollars in cuts to NOAA and nearly $200 million in cuts to NASA’s budget. Both agencies play a leading role in collecting and analyzing data vital to climate science.
The Trump budget even calls for eliminating $250 million worth of NOAA grants that help coastal communities already dealing with rising seas, beach erosion, and other ravages of climate change.
These targeted budget cuts are nothing more than a thinly veiled attack on climate science and the ability of jurisdictions to act in response to climate-related changes to coastal areas across the country. This administration filled with climate change skeptics wants to eliminate our ability to track and measure land and climate changes to our Earth as carbon continues to flood into our atmosphere.
We can’t let this happen. If you believe that understanding and mitigating the effects of climate change is key to our future, please sign and share this petition. Let’s come together and tell Congress to dump the Trump budget -- not our essential NASA and NOAA science programs.
