Skip to comments.50 Astronauts, Scientists, & Engineers Claim GISS Is Turning NASA Into A Laughing Stock!
Posted on 04/10/2012 3:40:07 PM PDT by StACase
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.
The unbridled advocacy of CO2 being the major cause of
climate change is unbecoming of NASAs history of making
an objective assessment of all available scientific data
prior to making decisions or public statements.
As former NASA employees, we feel that NASAs advocacy of
an extreme position, prior to a thorough study of the
possible overwhelming impact of natural climate drivers
is inappropriate. We request that NASA refrain from
including unproven and unsupported remarks in its future
releases and websites on this subject. At risk is damage
to the exemplary reputation of NASA, NASAs current or
former scientists and employees, and even the reputation
of science itself.
For additional information regarding the science behind
our concern, we recommend that you contact Harrison
Schmitt or Walter Cunningham, or others they can
recommend to you.
Thank you for considering this request.
I'm sure he was told there would be even MORE funding cuts, if he didn't support the Global Warming Hoax.
They’ll probably just be called astronuts and told to take a long walk off a space shuttle arm. Real scientists are no longer in charge.
NASA’s mission is to promote Islamic Astronauts, don’t you remember.
I’m waiting for one. Hope they don’t fly it into my house.
Bookmarking this one!
Lord how I wish Newt would become president and fire anybody at NASA who isn’t a rocket scientist, engineer, astronomer, or astronaut. Fire the hippies and get back to space exploration.
I wonder why the MSM has been so silent about this stunning denunciation?
NASA started failing when it stopped being a space exploration agency and became an earth observation agency with an environmental agenda.
Revolt of the engineers.
besides what does CO2 scaremongering have to do with their basic mission of Muslim outreach??

It became a laughing stock, in my view, when John Glenn received a free ride on one of the Shuttle missions after sabotaging Fred Thompson’s committee investigating Bill Clinton.
Or a ‘crying stock’ if there is such a thing. Remember ‘Barfing Jake’ Garns? another member of the “Senator rewards program”?
You're not seriously supporting Bolden's support of the AGW myth, are you? Are you really suggesting that it was better for him to go along with the big lie, so as not to jeopardize NASA's funding?
Personal integrity should have compelled him to keep NASA out of the Global Warming wars altogether, if nothing else. A scientist of real integrity would have stood up to the Gaia Cult, dirt worshipers, and told them to get stuffed.
The AGW Myth is just that, and to support the Myth as he did shows he values his job more than he values principle and truth.
There's a lot of Republicans in Congress that are in the same mold.
So why'd you back the guy up in your previous post?
Don’t tell Mittens. He’s all set with Algore’s and Van Jones’ watermelon agenda.
Au Contraire, Mon Ami....
READ more closely, and you'll see that I merely observed that he was FORCED to put out the Memo, to keep his job AND NASA funding.
I guess retirment for him was not an option he wanted to choose, and he wanted his job more than his dignity.
Any form of litteracy is now illegal, it hurts the butt of idiotic politicians. Even if the NYT turned around and told them about a real flood outside, they would act peeved someone wrote “so many words”.
