Idea to cut NASA's role in climate science could be major loss for Maine, scientists say
Description: Maine scientists are decrying the assertion that the new administration will eliminate or dramatically scale back NASA's climate research. The scientists say the elimination of the agency's earth science programs would be catastrophic for climate science research in Maine, impairing their ability to detect and analyze effects on fisheries, forests and agriculture. Maine is a hub of climate research - especially as it relates to the oceans - and the work relies on data collected by NASA satellites. [Source: Portland Press Herald]
