Houston, we have a problem. Global Warming alarmists in charge of the agenda are under pressure from prominent skeptics within the agency.
Looks like another GISS miss, more than a few people are getting fed up with Jim Hansen and Gavin Schmidt and their climate shenanigans. Some very prominent NASA voices speak out in a scathing letter to current NASA administrator Charles Bolden, Jr.. When Chris Kraft, the man who presided over NASA’s finest hour, and the engineering miracle of saving Apollo 13 speaks, people listen.
Here are some excerpts from the letter…
- “The unbridled advocacy of CO2 being the major cause of climate change is unbecoming of NASA’s history of making an objective assessment of all available scientific data prior to making decisions or public statements.”
- “We believe the claims by NASA and GISS, that man-made carbon dioxide is having a catastrophic impact on global climate change are not substantiated.”
- “We request that NASA refrain from including unproven and unsupported remarks in its future releases and websites on this subject.”
Of course most of what goes on in the leadership at NASA isn’t science, it’s politics. As long as there is no new leadership at NASA, there will be no change in the endless advocacy for global warming policy positions. Different politics, different focus. One more item on the list of reasons to send Obama packing in November.
