The new administrator of nasa held a town hall Thursday at the agencys headquarters in Washington, D.C. Jim Bridenstine is about four weeks into the job, and his path here was mired in controversy. After a few opening remarks, he started taking some questions. The first was about what Bridenstine thinks makes him qualified to be the head of nasa. The second was, as the moderator put it, one more easy onebecause its about climate change.
Bridenstine laughed. So did many in the room. It was an uncomfortable question. Bridenstine, as a Republican in Congress, has a record of denying that humans are responsible for causing climate change. For Democrats and liberals, Bridenstines view on this and other issuesparticularly on same-sex marriage and transgender rightsmade him a contentious pick to lead nasa, an agency that supports climate-change research and very publicly agrees with the majority of climate scientists who say that humans are the primary cause of the planets rising temperatures.
As far as my position on climate change and how its evolved, Ill be very open, Bridenstine replied. He described, as he has done multiple times before, his longstanding interest in funding weather-forecasting programs, particularly for tornadoes, which threaten people in Oklahoma, Bridenstines home state, each year. Then he got to what his critics wanted to hear.
I dont deny that consensus that the climate is changing, he said. In fact, I fully believe and know that the climate is changing. I also know that we humans beings are contributing to it in a major way. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas. Were putting it into the atmosphere in volumes that we havent seen, and that greenhouse gas is warming the planet. That is absolutely happening, and we are responsible for it.

Did Trump know of Beidenstine’s evolution before his appointment?
He’s right. Last February it was cold. Now it’s changed to hot.
He must have taken a nap next to the pod that the Deep State NASA employees had hidden near his office cot. His mind and body has been snatched.
Carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere is 400 parts per million. That is 400 parts per million.
Water vapor, a greenhouse gas, composes 4% of the atmosphere.
Are we going to drain the oceans?
The man is an idiot.
Nobody says the climate is not changing
Only disagree that the change is caused by human intervention.
Not this again. Is it so impossible to choose people that have some common knowledge. It’s time, Donald, to get you s—t together about appointments.
Scientific sanity. Simple and quite true.
No smoking hot spot David Evans - THE AUSTRALIAN July 18, 2008
1. The greenhouse signature is missing. We have been looking and measuring for years, and cannot find it.
Each possible cause of global warming has a different pattern of where in the planet the warming occurs first and the most. The signature of an increased greenhouse effect is a hot spot about 10km up in the atmosphere over the tropics. We have been measuring the atmosphere for decades using radiosondes: weather balloons with thermometers that radio back the temperature as the balloon ascends through the atmosphere. They show no hot spot. Whatsoever.
If there is no hot spot then an increased greenhouse effect is not the cause of global warming. So we know for sure that carbon emissions are not a significant cause of the global warming. If we had found the greenhouse signature then I would be an alarmist again.
and after Memorial Day, guess what? It WILL change to “hot”. Cant really blame Trump if one or 2 idiots are not filtered thoroughly when it comes to hiring.
Bride of Frankenstein.
I dream of a day where every Fed employee is sane and fully awake.
Liberals are so proud of Consensus Science. They agree, so it must be true and dissenters denigrated.
Chill out. I’m an employer too and sometimes one or 3 idiots go through the cracks. Trump has more important sh*t to deal with than an ass clown who believes in the tooth fairy of the weather aka climate changey.
It’s been getting warmer here since January. And next fall it will start getting cooler. Yeah. It’s called weather.
Now let’s get someone to run NASA who knows something about launching rockets into space or to the moon or to Mars.
The real issue is is that guy one of the best people to lead NASA, or will his new beliefs on global warming impact the way he leads NASA.
Great. Another Rino, Trump was advised to nominate. I wish he had advisors who weren’t wolves in sheep’s clothing. (Also known as politicians)
Great, now we can put pollution restrictions on our space rockets.
We will consult with Captain Planet about it. LOL.
“I believe” It means he has faith in this new world oder religion.
