Climate Change Funding is Epic 'Waste of Taxpayer Money.' Says Trump's Budget Director!
During the Obama administration, the climate change budget was fatter than a third-wave feminist haunch. Mostly because leftists helped the EPA bully its way into becoming a priority (see Obama Manipulated Department of Energy to Push Climate Change...). In fact, most of the climate change agenda was fueled by lying lies (read BUSTED: NOAA Lied About Climate Change Data to Manipulate World Leaders). You can see why we're not fans of the EPA.
And neither is the Trump admin...
President Trump released a $1.1 trillion budget outline that makes good on a series of campaign promises, including cutting Environmental Protection Agency by about one-third. And his budget director made clear the administration has no intention of going back.
Asked about the cuts to climate change-related programs, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said ... "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."
Sources inside the EPA anticipated at least 25% in budget cuts. Trump delivered: 31%.
From the first day Trump snuggled himself into the Oval Office chair, he's been targeting climate change (see PROGRESS: Trump Removes 'Climate Change' Page From White House Website!). With good reason. Environmental organizations have proven themselves corrupt gasbags time and time again. After all, this is a group that spends its time pursuing such actions as fining Alaskans for burning wood to stay warm. Methinks they can stand to lose a few million dollars.
Wherever you stand on the climate change myth, there's one thing worth noting here. Environmental friendliness and anti-freedomness have become rather inseparable. Like Hillary's "chin" and neck giblet. Putting an end to climate change cultists (see Democrat Attorneys General Wants to Punish 'Climate Change Deniers' to the 'Full Extent of the Law')? That's reason enough to squash the budget.
The best part was the EPA wasting no time to accused Trump of being an evil earth hater. What with his attempts to make use out of taxpayer money by not flushing it down an agency which has a financial, vested interest in believing in fairytales. The nerve on that apostate! Meanwhile, the EPA has done zilch to justify the budget it claims to need. Sort of like how they claim the earth to be melting, yet offer zero hard evidence to prove it.
