NASA’s Finest Are Climate Skeptics

Unlike the pathetic little weasels at GISS, NASA’s finest are climate skeptics.

To the long list of right-wing, knuckle-dragging know nothings who dare question so-called “global warming,” environmentalists now can add six Apollo astronauts, two rocket men who flew aboard Skylab, and a pair of former directors of the Johnson Space Center (JSC).

These veterans of America’s space program are among the 49 retired NASA employees who recently asked the space agency to halt what they consider its unscientific advocacy of climate alarmism.

Astronaut Buzz Aldrin told the Daily Telegraph that he believes the climate has been changing for billions of years.

In a letter to NASA administrator Charles Bolden Jr., these rocket scientists, space explorers, and other men and women of reason requested, “NASA and the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) refrain from including unproven remarks in public releases and websites.”

They added: “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,” the March 28 letter continued.

“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,” the document concluded. “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 letter’s signatories share at least 1,168 years of combined service to NASA. They include Gerald C. Griffin and Christopher C. Kraft, both of whom ran the JSC; former Space Shuttle Program Director Leroy Day, Skylab astronauts Ed Gibson and Joseph Kerwin, and Apollo astronauts Phillip K. Chapman, Walter Cunningham, Charles Duke, Richard Gordon (also a Gemini veteran), Harrison Schmitt, and Al Worden.

Among these brave men, Duke and Schmitt walked on the moon, and Gordon and Worden flew there without landing.

    Hooray for these brave, well-known souls willing to speak truth “to power”, as the old saying goes.

    Incrementally, the “consensus” will be publicly shown to be Bull-Poop!!

    We skeptics already know the truth.

  2. Dave N says:

    “..told the Daily Telegraph that he believes the climate has been changing for billions of years”

    Makes it sound as if they think most people believe it hasn’t. It is little wonder that the gullible swallow the “climate change” tripe.

    • mjc says:

      Most people probably don’t think it has been changing.

      Growing up on a diet of ‘perfect’ weather in most TV shows, Disney movies and what not tends to dull the idea that ‘natural’ change can happen. Couple it with the absolute mush being taught in most US schools for the past 30-40 yrs and you’ve got at least 1, probably 2 generations (and a good start on a 3rd) convinced of it.

  3. D. Self says:

    Have to love engineers….. NO BS. Let the real data do the talking.

  4. emsnews says:

    AND my father, Dr. Aden Meinel, one of the founders of NASA and Kitt Peak and other things!!!!

    He was censored when he tried to publish his very last paper before he died, ‘The Sun Is a Variable Star’ because the warmists all turned on him and Scientific American and Nature magazine refused to publish…

    Yes, there are a number of NASA elders who are alarmed at this insanity.

    • omanuel says:

      Thanks for posting this information.

      It has been known for years the Sun is a variable star, but Stalin’s form of lock-step pseudo-science to control the public doesn’t give a damn about truth.

    • omanuel says:

      emsnews,

      A Hungarian astronomer, Peter Toth, had the nerve to publicly ask if the Sun is a pulsar in 1977. That note was published in Nature.

      The USSR controlled Hungary at the time.

      Peter Toth disappeared from view.

      Last year, Nature refused to even review a note we sent to Nature answering Peter Toth’s question.

      • Alvin says:

        Refused to publish a response to an almost 40-year-old note asking a question with a dead-obvious answer?? *gasp* Conspiracy!

  5. omanuel says:

    Thank you for posting this important information.

    My impression is that Stalin focused on controlling the National Academy of Sciences rather than the National Academy of Engineers.

    Dr. Raymond Bisplinghoff, former Dean of Engineering at MIT, helped persuade the editor of Science to publish an open debate in 1977 over:

    a) Local element synthesis in the Sun proposed by us versus

    b) Superheavy-element fission in meteorites proposed by a NAS member at the University of Chicago

    I will post a link to the debate Science published.

  6. tom0mason says:

    Obama angrily blasted climate change skeptics during his energy policy speech Tuesday at Georgetown University, saying that the “overwhelming judgement of science, of chemistry, of physics, and millions of measurements” put “to rest” questions about pollution affecting the environment. He also said he lacked “patience for anyone who denies that this problem is real.”

    “We don’t have time for a meeting of the flat-Earth society,” Obama said. “Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it’s not going to protect you from the coming storm”

    So there you have it all you exNASA employees and ” hundreds of well-known climate scientists and tens of thousands of other scientists”, your President has no time for you.

    • _Jim says:

      I would recommend a work slowdown to those persons at NASA and NOAA involved in this farce. You know who you are, and if you are at all cognizant of what you are involved with then … well just be careful. And ‘leak’ some. Contact a reliable, safe journo or blogger and LEAK for Pete’s sake! Let us know you’re not all ‘sons of perdition’.

      .

      • tom0mason says:

        I understand what you say Jim and you are not advocating anyone breaks the law, and no incitement on you part.
        I understand that if someone’s conscience is telling them that this scam has gone on too long, and that this nation is suffering too much. Surely something can, must be done, then we ask please make our day. Do what you conscience worries you to do. The nation will be better if you do.

        • omanuel says:

          In my opinion, several NASA scientists have been “leaking” information past the gatekeepers for years, e.g., images of the Sun taken in short-wavelength light coming from highly ionized iron.

          Those images do not look like images made with longer wavelength visible light coming from the fluid, H,He-rich photosphere.

          Probably most scientists – like me -could not actually believe their government would purposely deceive the public until they had watched official responses to Chimategate emails that surfaced in late November 2009.

    • omanuel says:

      The results of a single measurement in 1975 showed that the Sun made our elements and then birthed the entire solar system five billion years (5 Ga) ago:

      http://www.omatumr.com/Data/1975Data.htm

      That measurement was confirmed by dozens of analyses of meteorites and by the finding of “strange xenon” Xe-2 in Jupiter’s He-rich atmosphere in 1995.

      NASA scientists hid the Jupiter data until the NASA Administrator was asked for the data while being filmed by CSPAN news in 1998.

  7. R. Shearer says:

    At least 3 of the astronauts that walked on the moon are “flat-earthers”…according to Obama.

  8. Eric Simpson says:

    My comment about current, establishment NASA on another site:

    And as far as the supposed credibility of NASA, in terms of their constant predictions of doom with global warming, because the doomsayers are always saying how they have NASA on their side, but look at the nutcases at NASA, for example this is what the former Chief Scientist at NASA said two years ago:
    “If Canada proceeds [with its tar sands oil development]… ice sheets would accelerate out of control. Sea levels would rise and destroy coastal cities. Global temperatures would become intolerable. Twenty to 50 percent of the planet’s species would be driven to extinction.” -James Hansen, NASA, 2012
    That’s obvious unhinged insanity from NASA. And btw, this is what the same James Hansen of NASA said in 1988: “[in twenty years (2008)] the West Side Highway (and thus much of Manhattan) will be under water.” -James Hansen, 1988, NASA [there hasn’t even been a detectable inch of sea rise since 1988 at Manhattan, lol]

  9. gallopingcamel says:

    I live on the “Space Coast” so my property value has been affected by the cut backs at the Kennedy Space Center.

    While the good bits of NASA such as the KSC are being defunded the useless bits such as GISS and “Muslim Outreach” are flourishing.

  10. gallopingcamel says:

    Eric Simpson, July 25, 2014 at 4:25 am,

    While the deranged James Hansen is no longer on the GISS payroll he is still generating “Junk Science” at an impressive rate. Enjoy his “Slide 35” here:
    http://www.lpi.usra.edu/planetary_atmospheres/presentations/Catling.pdf

    In a single slide Hansen shows 4.5 K/doubling of CO2 in accordance with the predictions made by Arrhenius in 1896 and 16 K/halving of CO2 which would explain the last seven glaciations.

    Please note that the EPICA researchers including Jay Severinghaus and Thomas F. Stocker never claimed that CO2 drove glaciations over the last 800,000 years:

  11. Sarcopter says:

    Don’t let a wee bit BBC under-hype the necessary protocol: According to a recent analysis by ‘Friends of the Earth’ Director Doctor Richard Dixon, “Scotland’s weather is showing a very clear long-term trend of increasing temperatures, just as climate change scientists predict.

    Yeah, right. Last year, Scotland experienced record snowfall when for long periods they couldn’t even dig out the emergency huts. A sixty-nine year snowfall record. The heralded great metric, CET, shows 0.4C cooling, since 2004. Imagine that.

  12. Eliza says:

    Unfortunately (unless I am wrong) this has no value unless it reaches MSM

  13. Eliza says:

    The poll is here
    http://www.ipsosglobaltrends.com/environment.html if you look carefully I think nearly most people around the globe are sick and tired of AGW! The US proudly leads. Obama is dealing with a minority of believers around now.

  14. El Duderino says:

    Look at the date of the article – more than two years ago. Doesn’t seem to have had much effect, unfortunately.

  15. vuurklip says:

    Reblogged this on vuurklip and commented:
    I seem to be in good company!?

  16. perdebytjie says:

    Somebody is making money out of this scam.

  17. omanuel says:

    The former Czech President was one of the first to recognize Stalin’s design in the worldwide AGW scam:

    Vaclav Klaus, Blue Planet in Green Shackles (Competitive Enterprise Institute, first edition, 2007) 100 pages, http://tinyurl.com/5z4j6g

    President Eisenhower or his speech-writer saw the possibility of Stalin lurking beneath the surface of federal research agencies like NASA in 1961:

  18. Janet S says:

    But but ….. didnt Lewandosky prove that all sceptics believe the moon landings were a hoax? These poor astronauts must be terribly confused 😦

    • Hugh K says:

      The greatest unsolved mystery is why anyone with a brain would listen to anything the 2014 Liar of the Year has to say.

  19. bjchip says:

    It is unbelievable that people are still listening to this utter rubbish. Bringing back a debunked argument 2 years later… is pretty pathetic. The difference between retired astronauts and administrators, and actual science is not any less clear now than it was then.

    I won’t be hanging around. You people are hopeless.

    • Gail Combs says:

      May your home stay forever cold and dark as you watch your children die of malnutrition and starvation.

      I figure I would put into blunt words the curse you wish to visit upon the rest of us.

  20. Roger the Geologist says:

    Speaking as a Geologist, one who is used to wading thru data, I can truly say those who manipulate data to fit an ideology are criminals and not scientists…. These men know the data is being manipulated and know crap science when they see it….
