I think that may be his view too, but it's a poorly informed opinion.

NASA's scientific contributions are multidisciplinary and go just as much towards understanding Earth as understanding space, even since the Apollo program. Largely because of the Apollo program, which was pivotal in getting us to regard the Earth itself as a planet worthy of study and emphasized the usefulness of space-based observations. Researchers around the world use remote sensing data from NASA-based missions to study everything from geology, biology, oceanography, the cryosphere, the atmosphere, weather and climate. To gut these programs to focus on space exploration alone would set a lot of our science back. And all of these fields are relevant to climate science, so we cannot simply say "have NASA leave climate science but allow the rest".

The main implication seems to be that "climate change" in the application, however indirectly related to the project, is no longer a magic word for funding. I'm sure they can just rephrase the applications slightly and do business as before, funding being no more or less fragile than before.

the only thing i hate about him is his science views and that he doesnt believe in it.
and his racism.
for me there is differences between racism and the terror phenomenas.
if you bring 1000 foreigns ppl to your country and even 1 of them doing attack that kills ppl.
for me it doesnt worth to bring that 1000 ppl at all at cost of lives.
so yes, i prefer not to give shelter to that 1000 ppl if even one of them will take innocent ppl lives.

I don't see any reasons to hate or like mr. Trump yet.
He didn't do anything special.

I guess it depends on your definition of "special".

Sorry, but I'm almost certain the actual percentage of 'foreigns ppl' that commit terrorist attacks is far, far lower than 1 in 1000. There is no evidence for the percentage being anything like that and if it were then there would be probably many, many more terrorist attacks in Western countries annually. And even if this statistic were somehow true, it would still be absurd to do something like that. There are currently about 321 million US inhabitants and there were about 35000 traffic-related accidents in 2015, which means about 1 in 100.000 Americans were killed in an accident that year alone. Does that mean we should ban all motor vehicles and traffic?

Climate change is proving itself to be an even more pressing issue, considering that 2015, the hottest year on record, will be nothing out of the ordinary by 2025.

Some Extreme Weather Now Reliably Linked to Climate Change
Scientists can now readily attribute some weather, such as intense heat waves, to the influence of a warming climate.

Unabated Global Warming Threatens West's Snowpack, Water Supply
New study shows a snowline creeping higher in the Rockies, Sierra Nevada and Cascades and the resulting decrease in spring runoff endangers those below.

As Coral Bleaching Goes Global, Scientists Fear Worst Is Yet to Come
Warm ocean temperatures are taking an unprecedented toll on reefs in all the world's tropical oceans, including in areas not affected by previous bleaching events.

Historical Data Shows Arctic Melt of Last Two Decades Is 'Unprecedented'
Sea ice melting since 1979 is 'enormously outside the bounds of natural variability' and clearly linked to humans burning fossil fuels, research shows.

As Oceans Continue to Warm, Consequences Grow More Dire, Study Says
Much of the heat of global warming has been absorbed by the sea, with a steep cost to marine life, ecosystems and the people that depend on them.

Melting Ice Raised Sea Levels More Than Previously Thought, Study Says
Relying on tidal gauges in the Northern Hemisphere skewed previous estimates over the 20th century, leaving the world's coasts more vulnerable than expected.

Rapidly Warming Mediterranean Headed for Desertification, Study Warns
Even with 2 degrees of global warming, the current global goal, desertification would overtake parts of this lush and vibrant region.

Far From Turning a Corner, Global CO2 Emissions Still Accelerating
The latest greenhouse gas inventory from NOAA shows CO2 and methane 'going completely in the wrong direction.'

We're on track for more than 3 degrees C of warming and starting to find more and more that keeping it at 2 degrees was too optimistic.

Watsisname, In my region we also see that the rate of heat waves are going up.
this week we have +8c anomaly. there is so many heat waves in the recent years. much more than decades ago.
so no just hotter days on average but also more heat waves here.
i think its the one before the last article you posted

Hornblower, these are interesting questions for humanity to ponder as we move toward exploring Mars.
