Pigs in Spaaace
Or, there is nothing new under the sun at NASA

Everyone and their grandmother has picked up on this astonishing development but Mr. Bonzo cannot help calling further attention to the matter - because it is important. From a Boston tv station:

June 1, 2007: Climate Change? Try Regime Change

In an astounding interview with NPR, NASA’s chief, Michael Griffin seemed to question the very significance of dealing at all with global warming.

“I am not sure that it is fair to say that it is a problem we must wrestle with,” Griffin said.

Say again, sir?

Many of the nation’s leading scientists excoriated Griffin. “His remarks show that he is either totally clueless or a deep, anti-global warming idealogue,” said Jerry Mahlman, of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Others called for Griffin to resign.

President Bush, meanwhile, inching out of his own characteristic denial, took baby steps when urgent, meaningful strides are called for. While avoiding any specific, mandatory guidelines, Bush suggested a vague “long-term global goal” for cutting greenhouse gas emissions, and called on the other major industrial nations to join in negotiations that would hopefully conclude in some type of agreement by the end of next year.

Keep fiddling, Nero.

Many years ago, when Mr. B. was young and charming, he had a first hand opportunity to view the goings on at NASA. Sorry, but this is not the way to spend the people's money.
