A group of ex NASA employees has delivered a letter to NASA warning them to stop adding hysteria to the claims that Global Warming is caused by human carbon emissions. The letter fails to base its claims on any scientific evidence, but instead bases its opinions on political positions.
The letter joins a litany of climate change skeptics whom feel that the temperature changes that we are experiencing is cyclic and the earth is going through another hike in temperatures that is totally normal.
A group of former NASA employees, including astronauts, has called on the agency to stop making “unproven and unsubstantiated remarks” regarding global climate change — specifically that human activities are driving global warming.
“We believe the claims by NASA and (Goddard Institute for Space Studies), that man-made carbon dioxide is having a catastrophic impact on global climate change are not substantiated,” write the 49 signatories in a letter to NASA administrator Charles Bolden.
This is the most recent objection by skeptics who challenge the reality of human-caused global warming. For decades, climate scientists have warned that humans are changing the composition of our atmosphere, warming the planet and, as a result, face rising sea levels, more extreme weather and other consequences. The concept is now well established in scientific literature and attempts to address it are the subject of ongoing international talks.
The letter originates from members of the Johnson Space Center Chapter of the NASA Alumni League, according to Walter Cunningham, a former astronaut who flew the Apollo 7 in 1968 and one of the letter’s signatories.
In its four paragraphs, the letter deliberately avoids delving into its signatories’ reasons for doubting climate-change science, Cunningham told LiveScience. “It’s really trying to get NASA to back off from taking political positions on science.”
