NASA’s Top Official Questions Global Warming

I guess NASA administrator Michael Griffin is not part of Al Gore’s consensus.

“To assume that it is a problem is to assume that the state of Earth’s climate today is the optimal climate, the best climate that we could have or ever have had and that we need to take steps to make sure that it doesn’t change,” Griffin said. “I guess I would ask which human beings — where and when — are to be accorded the privilege of deciding that this particular climate that we have right here today, right now is the best climate for all other human beings. I think that’s a rather arrogant position for people to take.”

Griffin’s comments immediately drew stunned reaction from James Hansen, NASA’s top climate scientist at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York and who was also featured in Al Gore’s movie.

In my humble opinion, this whole issue has become political and a huge money maker for some, which makes me question the motives of those who are trying to tell us all a crisis is at hand and we must all change our way of life. Carbon offsets have proven to be a joke and a hoax and the scientific community is no where near a consensus on the issue, no matter what Al Gore says. Here at home, where we are used to hot weather, we only had a week of really hot weather last summer and we are entering June without our first 100 degree day. Global warming is fast becoming a fad we will all barely remember.
