Guardian.UK: Trump to scrap Nasa climate research in crackdown on ‘politicized science'.

You know, many of us worried about Clinton and her "1% disconnection" from real working people. She even admitted to such in some interviews. But her disconnection is a sliver compared to what Trump's seems to be. He's in a 1% of 1% cocoon of his own making, hearing things through advisor-filters. Very Reaganesque. Reagan had a brain filled with aged vinyl LPs (using a metaphor from one of his advisors); his aides so wanted to go in and renovate, but there was no method to do so. So the trick seems to be, if you have a cause, you need to a) get access and b) present a compelling case.
