Donald Trump is adamant and plans on putting a kibosh on NASA’s climate change research activities. He wants deep space exploration to be the main focus of the agency from now onwards.

Trump is all set to crackdown on climate change research going on at NASA. He terms it politicized science. Most of his senior advisors have let this much be known without a shadow of a doubt.

NASA’s earth science division will have its funds radically slashed and deep space exploration will be the new item on the agenda, according to the Guardian

Trump is one president-elect who wants the entire solar system to be explored by the time the 21st century ends. NASA’s research facilities meant for gauging temperature, ice, clouds and other climatic signs will have to go.

The large gamut of satellites employed by NASA for its climate change department will be dismantled. One of Trump’s senior advisors has also said that NASA does not need to engage in politically correct environmental monitoring.

The purpose of NASa after all is the exploration of space. It is not to gauge the weather conditions on earth. 

Climate change research ought to take place at the spots reserved for it. NASA has no business poking its nose in places where it doesn’t belong.

Trump plans on some solid science for a change instead of politicized science. Donald Trump has previously gained notoriety for his views on climate change.

He termed it a hoax that was perpetrated by the Chinese. However, recently thanks to his role of greater responsibility as president-elect, Trump has confessed that their may be some degree of connectivity between the release of greenhouse gases and global warming.

Yet the fact remains that doubt over pollution being a major cause of global warming has been a staple of half the climate change scientists of the world. 

There are several climate change scientists who are worried sick that their jobs will be on the line thanks to Trump and his agenda. Many of them expressed sadness and rage at the gutting of NASA’s earth science facilities.

It was preposterous as many of them said in response to the plans of the president-elect. A pro-fossil fuels agenda and deregulation are the new watchwords and they spell danger for the world at large.

Already so much havoc has been wreaked thanks to man’s progressive ways that we cannot afford any more such blunders. Trump’s plans would put us in a blinkered state as far as the planet’s future is concerned.
