17 Mar 2017 – White House calls climate change efforts a “waste of your money”

White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney says the Trump administration is cutting spending for climate change efforts because “we consider that to be a waste of your money.”

Mulvaney says: “I think the president is fairly straightforward. We’re not spending money on that.”

President Donald Trump has often called climate change a “hoax” and his EPA chief, Scott Pruitt, said last week he does not believe carbon dioxide is a primary contributor to global warming. Trump’s proposed budget would cut the Environmental Protection Agency budget by 31 percent — nearly one-third — and eliminate more than 3,200 jobs.
