The Senate approved a bill to cut NASA’s global warming research that is done by the Goddard Institute of Space Studies (GISS). The Bill now goes to the House of Representatives where it is expected to be approved. President Trump is expected to sign the bill into law. NASA was created to explore space but it now spends more on global warming. Former President Obama incredibly told the head of NASA that he wanted the focus to be on Muslim outreach.
NASA will still have a role in global warming research as a good bit of research data is obtained from satellites that they build and operate. But GISS, directed by Gavin Schmidt, will be eliminated as their global warming research duplicates work being done in other government Departments.
James Delingpole provides some additional detail from his posting NASA to Stop Shilling For Big Green, Restart Exploring Space as follows:
“Before we shed too many tears for the plight of Gavin Schmidt and the rest of his global warming research team, though, let’s just pause to reflect on how much damage they have done to the cause of honest science over the years and what eye-wateringly vast quantities of our money they have wasted.
A good place to start is this excellent piece by Steve Goddard, entitled The Pause Is Real: NASA Temperatures Aren’t.
Here is the damning chart that says it all:”
“How did a supposedly respectable government agency get away with such blatant fraud?
Well, one answer is that it was encouraged to do so by the US government which paid its Earth Science research division $2 billion a year, while giving only $781.5 million and $826.7 million to its astrophysics and space technology divisions. Obama wanted “global warming” to be real and dangerous: and – lo! – thanks to the magic of his crack prestidigitators at NASA, NOAA and the rest, it was.
But the longer answer is that this is what happens when green ideologues are allowed to infiltrate and hijack government institutions. As we’ve reported before, NASA has been caught out fiddling temperature data on “an unbelievable scale”. So too has NOAA. That’s because their global warming departments are mostly run by true believers – scientists who want to show the world that global warming is a major threat in urgent need of more grant funding, regardless of what the actual temperature data shows. Hence the many, many adjustments.”
