  •  It started under Clinton (5+ / 0-)

    initially as a part of the Cold War draw down (peace dividend, anyone?). One of the agencies that got hit with massive layoffs was the US Geological Service, and what they had to do with the Cold War I never understood. But, remember, Clinton also had to deal with GOP-controlled Houses of Congress that never saw a physical science program they couldn't hack six ways to Sunday. Towards the end, as the budgets went into surplus as far as the eye could see, there was hope for building funding levels back up. But, it just got worse under the Chimperor. Sure, if one wanted to do WoT work, there was plenty of money for that, but for research into the climate, the oceans, or the environment? Forget it.
