The Trump Administration on Monday introduced its new budget proposal, which included a 31 percent slash to EPA funding, The Washington Post reports. Though climate change was not specifically mentioned in the proposal, the president has been an outspoken critic of science focused on manmade global warming, and the budget cuts funding for the EPA’s Global Change Research office completely. EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler called the budget “a common-sense proposal” that would “support the agency as it continues to work with states, tribes and local governments to protect human health and the environment."
