Minnesota ABC News affiliate KSTP: “A legendary astronaut touched down tonight in the Twin Cities. Walter Cunningham is here tonight to bring his insight into the climate change debate.”
“On Apollo VII in 1968 Astronaut Walt Cunningham viewed the world from a perspective few ever will.”
Walt Cunningham addressed a CFACT Collegians event at the University of Minnesota where he was interviewed by ABC.
Col. Cunningham: “Models are not data… I’m here to encourage everyone to look at the data themselves, not just buy what they’re told. I find that my standards for science are more important to me than anything else, and I hate to see them being depreciated by the alarmists’ claims today. Politics and the media and what have you have allowed us now to be facing one of the biggest scientific hoaxes in history. That’s what’s being pushed on us.”
Apollo VII was the first manned American mission in space after the tragic fire claimed the lives of all three Apollo I astronauts.
Walt Cunningham was the featured member of CFACT’s delegation to COP 19, the UN conference on Climate Change in Warsaw, Poland. Walt and his wife Dot plan to join CFACT for COP 20 in Lima, Peru in December.
