It's An Appropriate Time

...for the assortment of Know Nothings, nitwits, and flat earthers that currently appear to comprise the ruling claque of the Republican Party to be facing their own know nothingism in Congress, as gigantic solar storms pummel Earth while these cretins are faced with hearings on their proposal to, in the House, underfund the NOAA's space weather program and, in the Senate, to eliminate it completely. Insert monkey hoots here. Man, these guys are just really stupid, but of course their opposition to science is necessitated by their fundy world view.

Fortunately the funding will almost certainly be saved - advance warning has certainly minimized the impact of the last weeks' exceptionally powerful solar storms - but we can't expect Nature to always be so timely.
