Not just the swamp, Trump sets about draining the troughs as well

Donald Trump has signalled an end to the climate change fraud emanating from NASA. He’s going to strip their funding and tell them to stick to their knitting.

Donald Trump is poised to eliminate all climate change research conducted by Nasa as part of a crackdown on “politicized science”, his senior adviser on issues relating to the space agency has said.

Nasa’s Earth science division is set to be stripped of funding in favor of exploration of deep space, with the president-elect having set a goal during the campaign to explore the entire solar system by the end of the century.

This would mean the elimination of Nasa’s world-renowned research into temperature, ice, clouds and other climate phenomena. Nasa’s network of satellites provide a wealth of information on climate change, with the Earth science division’s budget set to grow to $2bn next year. By comparison, space exploration has been scaled back somewhat, with a proposed budget of $2.8bn in 2017.

Bob Walker, a senior Trump campaign adviser, said there was no need for Nasa to do what he has previously described as “politically correct environmental monitoring”.

“We see Nasa in an exploration role, in deep space research,” Walker told the Guardian. “Earth-centric science is better placed at other agencies where it is their prime mission.

“My guess is that it would be difficult to stop all ongoing Nasa programs but future programs should definitely be placed with other agencies. I believe that climate research is necessary but it has been heavily politicized, which has undermined a lot of the work that researchers have been doing. Mr Trump’s decisions will be based upon solid science, not politicized science.”

This is what happens when scientists overreach and start making stuff up. Eventually, there is push back.

Breitbart explains just why it is that NASA is under the pump.

Last year a German professor Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert – a retired geologist and data computation expert – accused NASA GISS of having tampered with the raw data so extensively that it had effectively “invented” global warming.

As I reported at Breitbart:

He has painstakingly examined and tabulated all NASA GISS’s temperature data series, taken from 1153 stations and going back to 1881. His conclusion: that if you look at the raw data, as opposed to NASA’s revisions, you’ll find that since 1940 the planet has been cooling, not warming.

Ewert listed some of the trickery employed by Schmidt and his egregious predecessor James “Death Trains” Hansen to exaggerate the appearance of “global warming”.

• Reducing the annual mean in the early phase.
• Reducing the high values in the first warming phase.
• Increasing individual values during the second warming phase.
• Suppression of the second cooling phase starting in 1995.
• Shortening the early decades of the datasets.
• With the long-term datasets, even the first century was shortened.

This chart, comparing the satellite temperature records with Schmidt’s adjusted version, gives you an idea of the scale of the climate fraud being committed by NASA GISS.

You don’t much more evidence than that. No wonder Trump has decided to axe their funding.

This is not science. This is political activism of a kind unlikely to receive much support from the incoming presidential administration.

Firstly, as we know, Donald Trump has declared himself a sceptic of man-made climate change theory.

Secondly, President-Elect Trump holds the old-fashioned view that the job of an organisation called National Aeronautics and Space Administration really ought to involve stuff like space exploration – not, as it became under President Obama, an official promoter of climate alarmism and a vehicle for Muslim outreach.

Just to remind you what an emasculated husk Obama made of NASA, here is an actual quotation from 2010, in which NASA administrator Charles Bolden spoke about his new priorities:

“When I became the NASA administrator, (President Obama) charged me with three things. One, he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math; he wanted me to expand our international relationships; and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math and engineering.”

This now looks likely to come to a very welcome end.

It is not only the swamp being drained it is all the troughs for so-called scientists as well.

Instead of sticking to science these fools have dipped their oar into political arguments…and now they are on the back foot as a result.
