Trump’s budget, which I mentioned this morning, has sent Warmists into a tailspin, including Excitable Ezra Klein
The Trump budget totally unwinds the Obama admin’s efforts to combat climate change: https://t.co/0ftj16aWzG

Among other goals, the budget appears designed to totally unwind the Obama administration’s government-wide commitment to combating climate change.
The antipathy toward climate change programs begins with the EPA, where funding cuts focus on President Obama’s Clean Power Plan, climate change research, international climate change programs, and so forth. But it doesn’t end there.
The State Department cuts also make a point to end the Global Climate Change Initiative and other international efforts on the issue. The Commerce Department reductions includes significant cuts to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), one of the major agencies conducting climate change research, and the budget outlines relatively mild cuts to NASA that target its Earth science programs.
The budget outline eliminates funding for TIGER, a grant-making program in the Transportation Department, most of whose funding has gone to “rail, transit and bicycle projects designed to reduce carbon emissions as well as congestion,” per Politico’s Michael Grunwald. And the Energy Department budget eliminates two programs providing loans for companies working on clean energy and clean vehicles, respectively, as well as ARPA-Energy, a widely praised agency created in the 2009 stimulus bill that provides early-stage funding for clean energy research and development that venture capital often won’t.
In 2009 we were told that elections have consequences. And so they do. The Cult of Climastrology has had 25+ years to insinuate themselves within the federal bureaucracies and with mostly Democratic Party politicians. Their major policies seem to revolve around increasing people’s taxes, spending lots of taxpayer money, and dictating how Other People act, all while mostly refusing to practice what they preach.
You know what?

It is, it definitely is. And Warmists will be very weepy as their precious ‘climate change’ is removed from the federal government.
