Trump White House quietly cancels NASA research verifying greenhouse gas cuts, Science
"You can't manage what you don't measure. The adage is especially relevant for climate-warming greenhouse gases, which are crucial to manage--and challenging to measure. In recent years, though, satellite and aircraft instruments have begun monitoring carbon dioxide and methane remotely, and NASA's Carbon Monitoring System (CMS), a $10-million-a-year research line, has helped stitch together observations of sources and sinks into high-resolution models of the planet's flows of carbon. Now, President Donald Trump's administration has quietly killed the CMS, Science has learned."
