Trump Budget Calls For Ending Lots Of ‘Climate Change’ Programs

It’s time to stop wasting The People’s money on worthless program based on junk science

(Daily Caller)  The White House is pushing for significant cuts to EPA programs and staff levels, giving a glimpse of how the Trump administration plans on devolving more control to the states.

The budget plan sent from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to EPA leadership calls for eliminating dozens of programs, including at least 16 that have to do with global warming and implementing former President Barack Obama’s climate agenda.

On the chopping block, at least for the moment, as the number of programs rise, are these ones

  • Alaska Native Villages
  • Beach and Fish programs
  • Brownfield projects
  • Clean Power Plan implementation
  • Climate Voluntary partnership programs‹there are 14 separate ones
  • Diesel Emissions Reduction Act
  • Endocrine grants
  • Energy star grants
  • Environmental education
  • Environmental justice
  • Geographical programs for lake [Champlain], L.I. Sound, S.F. Bay and South Florida
  • Global Change Research
  • Mexico Border grants
  • Multi-purpose grants
  • Office of Public Engagement
  • RadonStar
  • Research grants
  • Small minority businesses
  • State indoor radon
  • Targeted air shed grants
  • U.S. Mexico Border
  • Water Sense

Most of these are already handled at the state levels and/or within other federal agencies. Much is repetitive. Many are just useless, especially the ‘climate change’ ones. Good to see we’re going to see some common sense in government. This is what happens when you have a businessman looking at spending from a private sector point of view, rather than a governmental “meh, it’s Someone Else’s money” POV.
