OMB Director Mick Mulvaney gave a straightforward explanation for why they're gutting climate research.

"The president was straightforward. We're not spending money on that anymore," he huffed. "We think that's a waste of your money to do that."

Twitter reacted swiftly.

I hope Mulvaney burns in the world he and Trump create. Hopefully the rest of us will figure out how to take care of each other.

Can you help us out?
