RIP: Obama’s National Climate Service

April 13, 2011 05:04

Last Friday’s budget deal blocks funding for the Obama administration’s National Climate Service (NCS).

Announced in February 2010 and organized under the Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the pretext of the NCS was that:

“Americans are witnessing the impacts of climate change in their own backyards,” and that they “increasingly are asking the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for information about climate change in order to make the best choices for their families, communities and businesses.”

Last year, Steve Milloy lampooned the NCS for its role in Climategate here:’s-national-climate-disservice/

As more details about the budget emerge, we’ll see more wasteful or counter-productive programs eliminated. Departments and agencies that served as little more than government mouthpieces for radical environmentalists are ripe for defunding, and is glad to see Congress act decisively.

Steve Milloy is the publisher of and author of author of Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Control Your Life and What You Can Do to Stop Them.
