Climate Wars At NASA
Posted by Tory Aardvark
James Hansen director of NASA’s Goddard Space Center, has since the 1980s been spreading
predictions global warming fear stories and predictions of environmental Armageddon, none of which have come true.
The position of Hansen and thus NASA on global warming is the usual “settled science” meme of the warming alarmists, now this position is being challenged by nearly 50 scientists and astronauts including Buzz Aldrin and the deputy director of the Space Shuttle Program:
In an unprecedented slap at NASA’s endorsement of global warming science, nearly 50 former astronauts and scientists–including the ex-boss of the Johnson Space Center–claim the agency is on the wrong side of science and must change course or ruin the reputation of the world’s top space agency.
Challenging statements from NASA that man is causing climate change, the former NASA executives demanded in a letter to Administrator Charles Bolden that he and the agency “refrain from including unproven remarks” supporting global warming in the media.
“We feel that NASA’s advocacy of an extreme position, prior to a thorough study of the possible overwhelming impact of natural climate drivers is inappropriate,” they wrote. “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.”
The open letter to Charles Boden Jr pulls no punches:
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 NASA’s history of making an objective assessment of all available scientific data prior to making decisions or public statements.
Hansen long ceased to be an objective scientist, if indeed he ever really was, since the 1980s Hansen has been nothing more than a political activist cloaking his beliefs with the respectability that the NASA brand used to bring.
Changing the underlying “science” continually to meet his political objectives Hansen was caught out in 2010 making up temperature records so that 2010 was another record breaking year in warming alarmist world.
More recently Hansen has been caught again, pre-cooling northern hemisphere temperatures by 0.3C for the 1930s.
Hansen will be making a speech in Edinburgh next week where he will liken non belief in his junk science to slavery and propose a global carbon tax levied and administered by a one world government.
The prestigious Edinburgh Medal will be awarded to Hansen for his services to science, yes really, but then Hansen is an advisor to Al Gore.
