The Guardian reports that Republican Senator Ted Cruz will be chairing the committee in charge of NASA and the country’s scientific endeavors. Cuts in science/NASA funding might come next.
According to the Guardian, Cruz has attempted to cut NASA’s funding in the past. They also report that, a year ago, Cruz told CNN that “the last 15 years, there has been no recorded warming” to support "a so-called scientific theory" and that he has noisily opposed the EPA.
Cruz is not alone in this shift in power:
Senator Marco Rubio, Republican from Florida, was named chair to the subcommittee on oceans, atmosphere, fisheries and coast guard, which oversees the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (Nooa) and the protection of oceans and marine life in US jurisdiction. Rubio has said he does not “believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate”, which is a more lenient position than the new chair of the environment committee, Jim Inhofe, who denies climate science outright.
