(NationalSentinel) Budget: Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney made Alt-Left environmental wackos’ heads explode Friday when he revealed a previously unspoken truth: So-called ‘climate change research” is nothing more than a “waste” of taxpayer money.
Mulvaney, in delivering President Donald J. Trump’s first budget, made it far more “skinny” than budgets from previous presidents in the modern era, cutting funding for NPA, the National Endowment for the Arts, PBS and other liberal priorities.
Climate change research, such as it is, appears to be on the chopping block as well, as noted by Breitbart News:
Thursday at the White House press briefing while answering questions about President Donald Trump’s “America First Budget,” Office of Management and Budget director Mick Mulvaney called climate change research “a waste of your money” regarding proposed cuts in that area.
“A couple of different messages, when we talk about science and climate change — let’s deal with them separately,” he said. “On science, we’re going to focus on the core function. There are reductions in the NIH, National Institutes of Health. Why? Because we think there’s been mission creep, we think there are things outside their core function. We think there’s tremendous opportunity for savings. We recommend a couple of facilities can be combined and there is cost savings from that.

“Again, this comes back to the President’s business person view of government, which is if you took over this as a CEO and you look at this on a spreadsheet, and you go, ‘Why do we have all of these facilities? Why do we have seven when we can do the same job with three? Won’t that save money?’” he continued. “The answer is yes. So the part of your answer is focusing on efficiencies and focusing on doing what we do better. As to climate change, I think the President was fairly straightforward saying 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.” (RELATED: More fake news: Climate hoaxers at it again with ‘hottest year on record’ claim)
Despite the Left claiming otherwise, Trump has never said he did not support reasonable environmental protections for clean air and water, but he knows that ‘climate change’ has historically been the “justification” for government to implement boatloads of job-killing environmental regulations, especially during the Obama years. What he objects to, and rightfully so in our view, is the overzealous implementation of inane rules that do nothing to influence climate but go a long way towards thwarting economic growth and opportunity.
So finally, Americans have someone in the Oval Office who understands that so-called ‘climate change’ is nothing more than a far-Left scam aimed at controlling population growth and destroying capitalism. Hopefully the Age of Trump marks the beginning of the end of this cruel hoax.
