President Donald Trump’s budget director told reporters Thursday the White House was no longer spending money on climate change research because it’s a “waste of your money.”

“We’re not spending money on that anymore,” Mick Mulvaney, the Office of Management and Budget director, said at a press briefing while discussing the president’s decision to dial back climate science research.

“We consider that to be a waste of your money,” he added.

Trump released his congressional budget request Thursday, which contained several contentious reductions, including dramatic cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy.

  1. Here is a thought...

    Eliminate all funding for global warming research. However, begin offering funding to study global cooling. Will millions of dollars at stake, want to bet the "scientists" take the money and find the proof?

    1. Absolutely as it started out as global cooling. :)

  2. Notice every single science documentary for the past ten years about Antarctica the scientists have to mention "global warming" every few sentences to justify their presence there. Basically if you want a taxpayer funded adventure to Antarctica, in the political climate of the Obamination you'd better well find some way to link it to "global warming" or it wasn't going to get approved.
