Inside Climate News reports “Sequester Hits Nation’s Climate Change Research Capability: Eight regional centers dedicated to expanding climate research at the local level lose millions in budget cuts,” featuring quotation from Chancellor Donald Straney on the Pacific Islands Climate Science Center at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo.

“When you don’t have enough of something, having even less is a real problem,” said Don Straney, one of the principle investigators for the Pacific Islands Climate Science Center at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. “And we don’t have enough research on climate change.
