The pig squeals at NOAA: The agency’s administrator told Congress yesterday that the 2011 budget deal will cause great harm to weather monitoring.

Note that NOAA is getting $4.5 billion in the 2011 budget, $700 million more than the weather agency got in 2008.

Only in Washington is a budget increase of almost 20 percent in three years called a draconian cut.
