Obama dumps moonshot for Hansen stimulus

“President Obama is redefining the mission of NASA … away from space and aeronautics and toward the monitoring of global warming:

When the White House releases his budget proposal Monday, there will be no money for the Constellation program that was supposed to return humans to the moon by 2020. The troubled and expensive Ares I rocket that was to replace the space shuttle to ferry humans to space will be gone, along with money for its bigger brother, the Ares V cargo rocket that was to launch the fuel and supplies needed to take humans back to the moon. . . .

In the meantime, the White House will direct NASA to concentrate on Earth-science projects — principally, researching and monitoring climate change — and on a new technology research and development program that will one day make human exploration of asteroids and the inner solar system possible.

Perhaps NASA could use the extra climate-babysitting money, as a new report suggests the agency may have been complicit in skewing the record on global warming …”  “A Hansen Stimulus?

    What an idiot we have for a president. Using NASA to monitor a non-existent climate change? He should be prosecuting the crooks at NASA that are manipulating data instead of spending the entire budget on such a worthless endeavor. If only our poor nation can survive another three years of this idiot.

    Of course, Obama has no idea that we already have satellites up there monitoring the climate. These satellites find no warming at all. We need more to tell us nothing?

    Wait, perhaps the NASA geeks can put a program in the satellites which will beam back false data and then the idiots at CRU, NCDC, NOAA, and NASA will not have to dirty their hands fabricating the results – it will already be jjuusstt rriigghhtt!

    Welcome to Obamaspace!

    Make sure that you are registered to vote. Vote in November 2010. Vote the Obama bums out. Without Congressional support, Obama will not be able to accomplish much in the balance of his administration. Man made climate change is an unproven hypothesis.
