In September 2017, Trump’s EPA director announced that he was seeking to cut NOAA’s $2 billion in funding.
The proposed cuts would come as part of the Trump administration’s budget for fiscal year 2019, which is currently scheduled to begin on July 1.
NOAA has been instrumental in tracking global warming and climate change and, for more than 50 years, the agency has served as the premier repository for climate research.
But Trump has expressed an interest in eliminating NOAA’s climate research programs.
Last week, the administration announced a plan to cut the NOAA Climate Research, Data, and Prediction Center, or CRDC, by about $1 billion, which would eliminate about 3,600 employees.
The cuts to NOAA would be phased in over the next decade.
This follows a similar proposal from Trump in September 2017 that would eliminate the NOAA Atmospheric Sciences Division, or ASDS.
According to the Trump budget proposal, the National Science Foundation, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and other federal agencies will lose funding to offset the loss of NOAA’s Climate Science Program, which provides research on the impacts of climate change on society and the environment.
“The Trump Administration’s proposed cuts to the National Climate Assessment, a core science component of NOAA, would significantly diminish NOAA’s role in climate science,” NOAA said in a statement.
“While NOAA’s leadership in climate change research is vital to the nation’s understanding of the impacts that climate change is having on our nation and the world, it is also critical to our ability to predict the effects of climate-related disasters.
The administration’s proposed reductions would be devastating to our climate science efforts.”
A White House official told The American Prospect that Trump would make this proposal to the EPA to try to cut off funding for climate science, but he didn’t specify exactly what NOAA’s program is.
The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Agency, or NOAA, is one of the main agencies tasked with providing scientific data and information to the public.
NOAA is responsible for conducting climate research in many ways, including the research that can be used to create national climate models and climate models can provide data on global temperature and sea level change.
NOAA’s research also helps to guide environmental regulations and policy making.
The Trump budget proposes to cut funding for the Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Center, which focuses on reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
NOAA received nearly $2.2 billion from the federal government in fiscal year 2016.
The center’s $1.2 million budget for 2019 includes $250,000 to purchase research equipment, and the agency is also funding the creation of a climate-focused communications project to communicate to Congress on climate science.
NOAA currently has six climate science centers in the United States and a dozen overseas.
The agency has been able to provide climate science and climate policy guidance to federal agencies in the past because of its ability to collect and analyze data from around the world.
However, NOAA has not been able afford to keep up with the growing demands for climate change data, and that is leading to less and less data being collected by the agency, which has also faced budget cuts.
