NASA is teaching global warming propaganda online. Time for reform.
Climate Central is a major operation, with a budget estimated at about $5 million a year and a listed staff of 36 people. As a non-profit it is funded lavishly by a combination of left-wing Foundations and Federal agencies, but science has left the building.
NASA once again can soar to the heights that once put the world in awe.
A new study found adjustments made to global surface temperature readings by scientists in recent years “are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data.”
Long-term climate simulations have never come close to being accurate.
More than 70 percent of climate models underestimated the amount of rain compared to real world observations.
CAFCT policy analyst Larry Bell reports that the Trump Administration is taking serious aim at waste, fake science, and mission creep at the nation's executive branch bureaucracies -- notably the EPA, NASA, NOAA, and the Department of Energy. Politicized climate "research" is being defunded, and the President wants to return NASA to its primary focus on space exploration. There will no longer be wasteful outright grants and unsecured loans to green energy comanies.

CFACT advisor Larry Bell asks the rhetorical question -- Will the climate fanatics tone down their rhetoric given the lack of evidence of climate catastrophe? Indeed, though nearly every single fear-filled prediction of theirs has failed to occur, they will not be shamed into silence as long as the worldwide "science" community enjoys the financial benefits of parroting the party line.
The Trump Administration is determined to return NASA to its original mission of space exploration -- and move any climate-related research to other agencies, The future of the Goddard Institute of Space Studies, which for years has been the platform for warmist activists like James Hansen and Gavin Schmidt, will likewise focus on space or be phased out. The climate propaganda machine will have lost one of its chief protagonist entities.
Former National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientist Dr. John Bates has gone on record that the organization knowingly released "unverified" global temperature data in violation of rules on scientific integrity which Bates had received a 2014 U.S. Department of Commerce Gold Medal for devising.
President-elect Donald Trump’s senior space policy advisor, Bob Walker, recently observed that NASA has been reduced to "a logistics agency concentrating on space station resupply and politically correct environmental monitoring." Instead, "We see NASA in an exploration role, in deep space research." He added, "Mr. Trump’s decisions will be based upon solid science, not politicized science."
The UN climate talks in Marrakesh, Morocco, finished with demands for more climate cash, which the bureaucrats call accelerated or enhanced commitments, and pleas for incoming President Donald Trump to keep the U.S. within the UN climate regime and send over the cash. Next year Fiji's military Junta gets the ball.
Dr. Gavin Schmidt, the director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, told the Independent he and other government scientists are “not going to stand” for any funding cuts or other interference in their work.
“Uncertainties in the adjustments to our global temperature datasets, the small amount of warming those datasets have measured compared to what climate models expect, and uncertainties over the possible role of Mother Nature in recent warming, all combine to make climate change beliefs as much faith-based as science-based."
