Global Warming Zealots Get
Slammed by NASA Scientists

49 former NASA scientists and astronauts sent a letter to NASA Administrator Charles Bolden last week admonishing the agency for its role in advocating a high degree of certainty that man-made CO2 is a major cause of climate change while neglecting empirical evidence that calls the theory into question.
The group, which includes seven Apollo astronauts and two former directors of NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, are dismayed over the failure of NASA, and specifically the Goddard Institute For Space Studies (GISS), to make an objective assessment of all available scientific data on climate change. They charge that NASA is relying too heavily on complex climate models that have proven scientifically inadequate in predicting climate only one or two decades in advance.
“We believe the claims by NASA and Goddard, 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,” the group wrote. “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.”
H. Leighton Steward, chairman of the non-profit Plants Need CO2, noted that many of the former NASA scientists harbored doubts about the significance of the C02-climate change theory and have concerns over NASA’s advocacy on the issue. While making presentations in late 2011 to many of the signatories of the letter, Steward realized that the NASA scientists should make their concerns known to NASA and the GISS.
“These American heroes – the astronauts that took to space and the scientists and engineers that put them there – are simply stating their concern over NASA’s extreme advocacy for an unproven theory,” said Leighton Steward. “There’s a concern that if it turns out that CO2 is not a major cause of climate change, NASA will have put the reputation of NASA, NASA’s current and former employees, [and put] the very reputation of science itself at risk of public ridicule and distrust.”
The letter included a request for NASA to refrain from mentioning CO2 as a cause of global warming in future press releases and websites. The agency’s “Global Climate Change” webpage says that “Humans have increased atmospheric CO2 concentration by a third since the Industrial Revolution began. This is the most important long-lived “forcing” of climate change.”
The EPA website says that “Increasing levels of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide in the atmosphere since pre-industrial times are well-documented and understood.” It goes on to say that “The atmospheric buildup of CO2 and other greenhouse gases is largely the result of human activities such as the burning of fossil fuels.”
What does NASA say?
“NASA sponsors research into many areas of cutting-edge scientific inquiry, including the relationship between carbon dioxide and climate,” says the agency’s chief scientist, Dr. Waleed Abdalati. “As an agency, NASA does not draw conclusions and issue ‘claims’ about research findings. We support open scientific inquiry and discussion…If the authors of this letter disagree with specific scientific conclusions made public by NASA scientists, we encourage them to join the debate in the scientific literature or public forums rather than restrict any discourse.”

Here is evidence that it is particularly our poles which are warming up, not just because of “climate change”, because for anything to happen in terms of a differential implies change. Not saying there isn’t a climate change, since there is in fact evidence of global warming, but there is also evidence of planetary warming of our entire solar system, including our sun. So we need to step back and look at the big picture here. Which is that everything in our solar system is heating up.
Now this article is a big propaganda piece and is quite upsetting to read. It is basically saying that some people are blaming the sun for the warming based on the fact that other planets are being warmed as well but “scientists” say this is misleading and that we are to blame.
Whatever research there doing shouldn’t be considered highly scientific and at best theoretical. There simply is not enough evidence for scientist to put the blame on people. We don’t have data going back as far as to previous cycles, since we are going through a solar cycle at this moment. We are also completing an even larger cycle which evidently in my opinion is the reason for the increase in temperature. Since the increase in temperature correlates with other planets in our solar system there is factual evidence that the sun would be the main determinant of thermal increase.
“Scientists” are trying to blame carbon as the cause of the temperature increase to scare the populous into giving away they’re money by being taxed for producing it. The fact that it is called the “Carbon Tax” is sickening to me because carbon is one of the building blocks of life on this planet. So just think about: we can’t live without carbon. We’re being taxed for emissions of something that is essential for life. It would be different if it was a “carbon monoxide tax” which is poisonous and polluting, but just carbon alone is not.
Carbon is part of the symbiotic cycle between plants and animals. We inhale oxygen from plants and exhale carbon which they inhale and then exhale oxygen and the cycle repeats. Near clean burning coal plants people have found that plant life flourishes in environments which contain access carbon. This flourishing plant life counter-balances the access carbon by consuming and producing oxygen.
Don’t fall for the globalist game of control and domination. Think about what it is that your government is asking of you and the policies that they impose and how that might affect you. Do research and look beyond what is presented to you in the mass media which is controlled and consolidated in most parts of the world. Use your head and particularly your heart. Let it guide you.
