Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Salon has helpfully provided Americans with a list of Federal climate budget cuts which can be applied on day one of the new Trump administration.

Politicizing climate change: Donald Trump’s budget could cut climate funding for NASA, other federal departments

Donald Trump, in an effort to cut spending, is likely going to slash some important climate change programs

BRIAN KAHN AND BOBBY MAGILL, CLIMATE CENTRAL

The world is waiting to hear what President-elect Donald Trump has in mind for governing the U.S. Among the biggest questions is what will happen to the budget for climate and energy-related activities.

Though they’re a relatively small piece of a federal budget that is in excess of $1 trillion, how the administration deals with climate and energy will go a long ways toward determining the future of the planet.

“We don’t get a second chance,” Secretary of State John Kerry said last week at the United Nations climate talks in Morocco. “We have to get this right and we have to get it right now.”

Energy Department
2017 climate-related budget: $8.5 billion

Interior Department
2017 climate-related budget: $1.1 billion

State Department
2017 climate-related budget: $984 million

NASA
2017 climate-related budget: $1.9 billion

Environmental Protection Agency

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

I must say I’m impressed – that’s $13.5 billion of useless waste which can be cut immediately from the Federal Budget. $13.5 billion is an awful lot of road resurfacing and bridge repairs, or a very welcome new year bonus for hard pressed taxpaying Americans.

Good job guys – if you have any more tips Salon, please be sure to forward them to the Trump Administration.
