Re: Trump's budget takes a sledgehammer to the EPA / cut funds for NOAA

I don't see any way that the budget passes as is. They'll probably have some negotiations so that less extreme cuts that are negotiated will sound like a compromise, even though they'll still do a lot of damage. There are republicans who believe in climate change too, but I don't know if they are going to fight to have any US research continue into it. Unfortunately things are just not going to go well until 2020. Maybe by 2018 some of the continued damage can be stopped after midterm elections. It won't be until 2020, at the very least, when we can undo most of the damage.

I now hate Mick Mulvaney more than just about anyone in the administration.

"Regarding the question as to climate change, I think the President was fairly straightforward -- we're not spending money on that anymore; we consider that to be a waste of your money to go out and do that. So that is a specific tie to his campaign."

Of course what he said about the poor was horrific. I don't see how most of the republicans will be able to vote for any cuts to any of those programs. And that will be in great part to Mulvaney's performance, so in a way I guess we should thank him for being so evil.

It's very sad that we will be reversing progress on climate change. We'll continue polluting, even more, impacting a lot of poorer countries that we will now stop helping. They are seeing the effects more than we have, especially droughts in Africa that kill a lot of people. We were going to try reduce our impact on climate change and continue paying some of the countries that we were hurting basically. Now we'll probably do neither.
