Donald Trump's $10 Trillion Climate Mistake

Donald Trump's $10 trillion climate mistake

Climate change skeptics claim that the science is unsettled while simultaneously proposing to end studies that would settle it.

The latest iteration of this ludicrous hypocrisy was on full display last week when the House appropriations committee carved another $50 million from NASA's Earth science division, on top of the already severe 2018 cuts requested by the Trump administration.
