Turncoat NASA chief says he changed mind about climate change because he 'read a lotí

“This is a good example of regulatory capture -- when the people being regulated win over their supervisor to their viewpoint. It happens all the time. He looks a bit of a Shlemiel anyway so was probably not hard to capture

Another reason why he was quickly captured probably is that he knows nothing about science. In justifying himself, Bridenstine referred to "The Science" as having convinced him. Whenever anybody talks vaguely about "The Science" as his justification for believing in global warming that is a sure sign that he in fact knows nothing about the issues involved. He is just appealing to authority, which is almost always a dumb thing to do.

So it is no surprise that his only postgrad degree is an MBA, a singularly useless piece of paper. There is no MBA science. An MBA is just a grab bag of ideas from other disciplines and 40 Years Of Data Show The MBA Effectively Does Nothing -- It Has No Impact. Success in business is all about handling people and you have either got that or you haven't...”

Why are we plagued by weaklings such as Bridenstein and Sessions who go into “hostile” agencies and promptly meekly submit to the Deep State staffers instead of having those staffers submit to them? They have no concept of “assuming command” or “taking charge”.

America deserves better than these cowards.

[[Turncoat NASA chief says he changed mind about climate change because he ‘read a lot’]]

He must have skipped right over the FACTS that state that man’s CO2 amou8nts to less than 0.00136% of the atmosphere

Bridenstine has been the subject of an Ethics investigation involving accepting gifts worth several thousand dollars.

Congressman James Bridenstine returned two of the gifts (a pair of rugs worth several thousand dollars) back to the donor. He turned over remaining gifts received during the trip to the House Clerk in 2015, following a watchdog report that indicated that the source of the funding for the trip had not been properly declared. The Ethics Committee let him off.

Me thinks Bridenstine is a POS.

What an idiot. Water vapor absorbs almost all of the Infra Red spectrum. Carbon Dioxide only absorbs two narrow frequencies. The abundance of water vapor means almost no Infra Red radiation will travel far enough to be absorbed by Carbon Dioxide. So, if no more Infra Red wavelength is being absorbed, why does more Carbon Dioxide even make a difference in temperature ant=d to anything except to plants? It does not except in the socialist orchestrated crisis to take over energy as the means of production, the communist dream.

There is obviously a difference between “read a lot” versus “read enough”.

The truth that is never admitted as truth is ... nobody except God knows the truth. Anyone else claiming to know the truth besides God is only a liar and after your money

I read fiction too, but it doesn’t change my mind about applying facts/logic/reason to my real world decisions.

Libtards need to have their faces pushed in the global warming/climate change scam and fraud sh*t they swallowed for so long.

When my daughter was a Junior in HS, she came home one night and just ripped the family about global warming, our carbon footprint, our wasteful food practices, our use of energy and on and on. I asked where she had gotten her information and she said that it was from her history teacher (?).

The next day was a Friday and she was running late as usual. She came to me said, “We gotta go, I have to go to school.” I told her that I had been thinking about what she had said the previous evening and told her that I was going to work from home that day in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint. She said, “But Dad, I have a Bio test today, we have to go.” I told her that saving the planet was more important than her Bio test. She was livid, and called some friends to see if she could get a ride. No luck. She stayed home that Friday.

I suggested she spend the weekend doing some research on global warming and energy use and see if what her teacher seemed right. She did and spent two days writing a paper for her history teacher that debunked human caused global warming. It was not an assignment but she gave it to the teacher anyway. It came back with a note at the top that said “I'll have to think about this.”

I seem to remember that she was able to take her Bio test on Monday, but the perspective and discernment she gained was more valuable than anything.

Good job!

I’ve been reading about c13/c12 isotope ratios and the ever changing historical temperature records. One of these days I’ll write my own detailed response, but by then, maybe most will have realized so-called climate change has no foundation. Who am I kidding. We’ll always have so-called climate change proponents just as we have flat earthers.
