As we head into the first week of hurricane season, contact your Congressperson and tell them not to cut the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Weather Service budget.
Let them know that the proposed federal budget cuts would impact climate change and ocean research that helps prepare communities for sea level rise and more intense storms. These cuts would also impact NOAA’s Sea Grant program, which works with universities in 33 states and funds coastal and marine research locally at MIT and Woods Hole.
