Trump picked wrong time to slash climate science budgets

Following Trump and Big Oil's orders, Budget Director Mulvaney is slashing federal spending on climate change because it "was a waste of your money."

Regardless, the multiple consequences of a warming planet are apparent 

and the the need to understand and confront climate change continue:
After a season that saw temperatures soar at the North Pole, the Arctic has less sea ice at winter’s end than ever before in nearly four decades of satellite measurements. 
The extent of ice cover — a record low for the third straight year — is another indicator of the effects of global warming on the Arctic, a region that is among the hardest hit by climate change, scientists said.
Too bad these ideologues don't read what's out there, or care.
