NASA rebellion on global warming [Anti-Hansen letter signed by 50 astronauts, etc,]
Charleston (WV) Daily Mail ^ | April 11, 2012 | Don Surber

Posted on 04/11/2012 7:06:09 AM PDT by Mustang Driver

The 85th Congress and President Eisenhower set up the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to explore space. Government bureaucrat James Hansen has used his position and NASA’s reputation to advance an unscientific agenda that calls for government restrictions on all major industries and any other human activity in the bane of controlling carbon dioxide production. This junk science has made him a millionaire through income outside the government. He is a rogue government agent who no one seems able to supervise. Now 50 top former and current astronauts and NASA scientists and engineers have had enough. They want this crackpot stopped.

In a letter to NASA Administrator Charles Bolden that does not — repeat, does not — name James Hansen, 50 astronauts requested that NASA stop pushing global cooling/global warming/climate change. However the letter specifically names the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, which James Hansen has headed for31 years.

The body of the letter, courtesy of No Tricks Zone:

We, the undersigned, respectfully request that NASA and the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) refrain from including unproven remarks in public releases and websites. 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, especially when considering thousands of years of empirical data. With hundreds of well-known climate scientists and tens of thousands of other scientists publicly declaring their disbelief in the catastrophic forecasts, coming particularly from the GISS leadership, it is clear that the science is NOT settled.

What the left has done to NASA is what they do at all levels of government. Divert from productive efforts to wasteful liberal social issues.

NASA has seen its efforts cut back, yet somehow there is time and money to lobby on issues unrelated to their core mission.

This is going on in every democrat city and state in the nation. While they founder, they are wasting valuable time and resources on left wing social engineering. From Bloomberg’s war on salt to NASA abandoning space for a global warming crusade.

People who grew up with the space program will recognize signers like Harrison Schmidt, Chris Kraft, Charles Duke, Walt Cunningham, and Al Worden.

The guys who flew missions had real guts to sit in capsules on top of those rockets, and I suspect it took some guts to buck the establishment and sign this document as well - we owe them all our thanks for both.

It’s time for NASA to fire Hansen. He is an embarrassment to their agency. Fire him and make him try to find a real job.

At risk is damage to the exemplary reputation of NASA, NASA’s current or former scientists and employees, and even the reputation of science itself.

Well said.

AGW a cult for white liberals that makes them useful to the Left and wealthy scumbags who loot us via carbon credits.

Wholehearted agreement.

I blame the Columbia reentry explosion directly on this global warming scam. When NASA went green, they changed the insulation tiles to conform with their stupid green standards and people died. Anyone connected with that should be in jail.

I’ve been trying to remember, wasn’t there an early 20th century Soviet who denied the existence of bacteria or some such thing because it didn’t fit the communist agenda?

The Russians denied that angels exist because Sputnik had not encountered any.

Not saying they do exist, just addressing your question.

“The Russians denied that angels exist because Sputnik had not encountered any.”

Actually, what I was thinking of is:

Lysenkoism
(Life Sciences & Allied Applications / Genetics) a form of Neo-Lamarckism advocated by Trofim Denisovich Lysenko, the Russian biologist and geneticist (1898-1976), emphasizing the importance of the inheritance of acquired characteristics

Heredity would indicate some people had better genes. Very much against communist doctrine.

I’ve said for some time that the worst thing about the CAGW nonsense is the damage it has done and is doing to Science.

RE: "We need some rope for the Marxists....."
Hopefully the letter will not be filed into a trash can. But help in a final process of getting rid of this guy once and for all. Of course we still got a shit load of them that are more difficult to get rid of. At least we see the wheels start to slowly move over the last year or so, with so many professionals in the scientific and engineering communities to start to speak up on the falsehood of AGW.
