The closest thing there is to eternal life, is a government program.
Kinda funny he wants to cut NOAA satellites but wants another moon mission...
I hope that you realized that I was joking
Amazing because that's what I get out of President Trump.
Because $900 wrenches and $35,000 toilet seats for the Pentagon makes more sense to defense contractors.
Here's the only climate monitoring we need...
Not really though.
Breaking News - He made another tweet so he obviously hates Facebook and wants to put them out of business so the kids of Facebook employees starve to death. He wants to murder kids.
He obviously hates working if he has time for vacation and tweeting.
Well, being from New York rather than than hurricane-prone the Gulf Coast and mid-Atlantic states (or the tornado-probe Midwest for that fact), Trump probably doesn't see the need for early warning about the weather.... oh wait....
(hurricane Sandy's impact on Queens, source)
And why would NYC need a coastal defense system. We don't need Wall St anymore.
I might be wrong, but haven't storms (hurricanes, tornadoes, thunder storms, etc.) killed more people in the US than ISIS and al-Qaeda put together?
I think the words you are thinking of is "legal guns". But ya Tornadoes do kill more people on US soil than ISIS.
Maybe he really does more substantive work by noon on Wednesday than other recent Presidents, frozen by politics like Buridan's ass, would do in a month.
Well we know how productive those 6 am bowel movements are.
It's becoming harder and harder to discern whether you're joking or thinking you've snapped.
$1 Billion a year for Funding, or say $50 Billion in damages for a Storm like Sandy. To say nothing of Droughts and the fact that Miami is slowly going under water. You do the math.
The problem could still lie in the eye of the beholder.
Now, using the Farmer's Almanac for serious weather forecast would be a major snap... if I ever go that far send me to the funny farm.
Guess you never heard about Trumps twitter.
Nope haven't. Apparently you've got your nose deep in the know. You can keep it all to yourself though. I'm pouring another martini and checking on the steak and corn.
Or the person writing the questionable material.
Funding weather satellites isn't going to stop the storms from destroying buildings. And it isn't going to do anything about land going underwater.
We already know which areas get hit by storms frequently. And people continue to build and rebuild and live right in the path frequently traveled and ripped apart by storms. Funding weather satellites isn't going to change that.
People choosing to live in places that aren't constantly hit by storms would decrease the lives and property taken by said storms.
Satellites won't save their houses. Building their houses in safer locations would save their houses.
Let Mother Nature have the land that she frequently reclaims.
If weather prediction was accurate, I'd be sitting in hurricane force winds and freezing my a$$ off. Instead, I'm enjoying a week of nice calm sunny days. So much for two weeks of white out conditions and snow storms with wind ripping the town apart. I haven't seen an accurate weather forecast in 40+ years. I'm not worried about the prospect of not having as many weather satellites in operation.
Satellites are just our way of creating a junk yard in space. It's time we slow down until we can reclaim the orbiting junk yard and recycle it.
yes never had accurate weather predictions so we should just give up/ then a far amount of people should move to get away from the weather. well this is a much better solution to save money then launching less weather satellites. we should really go back to asking god to take care of the weather for us.
Well...yes and no. Weather satellites won't stop storms from destroying buildings in an acute way, but with modeling from the data - we can build better defenses against said storms (or what have you) saving countless taxpayer dollars.
Your second point is interesting, as the NFIP provides flood insurance to many who would otherwise not get coverage - but they are badly in debt - and it will only get worse. You can't expect people to vacate vast tracts of land, especially when places hit will change - hence the data-gathering by satellites - so as to better formulate a response.
I think a lot of people look at this issue and think of the local weatherman that (often) gets it wrong. There's a lot more complexity and science in there - hell, private insurers compile data from this - to establish their cost-benefit analysis. Are you really advocating a position in 2017 that weather (and the repercussions) are best handled by laypeople going outside or looking out the window?
Really? Science is a left right issue? Are you so far gone that collection of science data to make smart decisions based on fact is a partisan issue.

Dang would love to see Mara Laga under water.
