Just as NASA was gaining some steam on blowing the cover off of the global warming hoax using real science, President Barrack Obama threw a monkey wrench into the space program.
A new study published by the science journal Remote Sensing highlights NASA satellite data which shows that the atmosphere has been shedding heat long before United Nations computer models predicted. And the study indicates that far less future global warming will occur than global warming zealots have claimed.
In Forbes’ analysis “New NASA Data Blow Gaping Hole In Global Warming Alarmism,” author James Taylor shows that the study really does blow a gaping hole in alarmists’ theories, and it should blow a hole in the massive government subsidies being shelled out as well.
“When objective NASA satellite data, reported in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, show a ‘huge discrepancy’ between alarmist climate models and real-world facts, climate scientists, the media and our elected officials would be wise to take notice. Whether or not they do so will tell us a great deal about how honest the purveyors of global warming alarmism truly are,” wrote Taylor.
But NASA’s demise seems certain with President Obama’s recent announcement of a “refocusing” of NASA’s budget on global warming and other political agendas instead of pursuing manned space flight. The refocus of NASA funding couldn’t be more brutal, with NASA science debunking the global warming agenda.
Opponents of NASA have been horrific hypocrites recently, touting the benefits of “privatized” space flight, in order to justify ending NASA’s manned space capabilities. “Of all the other federal functions ripe for privatization — the dinosaur postal service for example — Obama targets the one function that provides both national security benefits and requires massive accumulation of capital to conduct. Too bad Obama’s zeal to wipe out manned space flight through privatization doesn’t extend to other parts of the federal government,” J. Christian Adams of Pajamas Media so aptly points out in Obama Pulls the Plug on a Great Run in Space.
Why not privatize Amtrack instead? Amtrack is a colossal waste of taxpayer funding with even less reliability than the postal service.
Or end the very expensive push to expand government health care, which will only compete with the country’s private health care – still one of the best health care systems in the world.
Solar and wind subsidies have also exponentially increased since 2008, despite the unreliability of both as a primary source of alternative energy. This is one area of government where mountains of money could be saved as well as encouraging private market solar and wind solutions.
But that does not fit the liberal agenda of government expansion and takeover.
It’s difficult not to see a conspiracy with NASA’s demise; space has measurable benefits including military benefits. But China, Russia and even India will be directing space travel now, and probably end up cutting off America’s needed military access to space.
The Obama administration’s NASA decision will have long-term ramifications including but not limited to America’s military.
One comment left on Adams’ story resonated particularly: “Obama shares the common progressive hostility to actual science… Real science, especially space science, has a terrible potential to discover things that progressives cannot deny, or co-opt for their grand plans. Imagine what would happen to their plans for an “energy limited” Utopia with solar power satellites pumping out a few terawatts of power each day, as opposed to their preferred “appropriate technology” surface receptors, which have a couple of small problems- called “night” and “the atmosphere.”
NASA’s massive budget has been largely unaccountable for decades – this many agree upon. And Democrats have resented the money spent on space travel and instead have always prefered spending on social programs. And now, the President is going to give them the money and put thousands of NASA employees out of work. So much for the “jobs, jobs, jobs” which use real science.
