Congress: Fund NASA and NOAA hurricane-tracking satellites and climate science

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives

Petition Statement

Hurricanes Harvey and now Irma proves the urgent need for earth monitoring satellites. Tell Congress that defunding climate and weather science puts the nation at risk.
There are currently 1,509 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Climate scientists have long predicted extreme weather events caused by climate change. But Congress is defunding satellites necessary for understanding the origins, frequency, and severity of killer storms. Shutting down science when the weather is killing people is like shutting down medical research when you discover ebola.
