Dr. Michael Griffin, NASA, chief administrator
(Warm-earther – one who advocates the theories and consensus belief of anthropogenic global warming to the extreme of resisting any and all scientific proof to the contrary)
Dr. Michael Griffin, NASA, chief administrator tried to tell them. But the politically correct consensus of the warm-earther scientific community of NASA would have nothing of it.
Instead they drove him to his knees and demanded that he renounce the contrarian denier’s spirit that had obviously possessed him. They then forced him to do twenty hail warmings and 40 our father of global warming, Al Gores!
Under tremendous puerile peer pressure Dr. Griffin prostrated himself on the floor with arms out streched at his sides (looking like an airplane) he proclaimed that he was in league with the devil (or fellow deniers, they’re synonymous) and from henceforth he would not perform the witchcraft of truth telling ever again.
Even if he is again asked his personal opinion he will never venture to say anything but what is the accepted warm-earther scientific theory (based on consensus opinion) on any matter. So help him Robert Hooke or Galileo Galilei the father of modern science. (Whom you chose is depended upon whether you agree with Albert Einstein or not.)
What? You don’t believe me? They got it on video!
Well all right, they have his renouncement of what he said in the NPR interview, I admit I am speaking with my tongue-in-cheek, I doubt he really laid prostrate on the floor while he gave his confession but they do have his apology on video!
Seriously though, you and I should understand that Dr. Griffin’s acquiescing to the warm-earthers means that he never can have an independent thought ever again.
Further it means that whatever he says for public consumption from this point on will undoubtedly be in consensus with the consensus. And whatever he says will be to appease his warm-earther scientific consensus and grand inquisitor high-council housed there at NASA. Kind of Big Brother and 1984, wouldn’t you say?
Dr. Griffin was attempting to state that NASA’s proper and official role is a space exploration agency not a shiny new Sharper Image™ global warming weather vane for warm-earther fanatics and for that truth Griffin was rebuffed.
Dr. Griffin explained:
“Nowhere in NASA's authorization, which of course governs what we do, is there anything at all telling us that we should take actions to affect climate change in either one way or another.”What, blasphemy! Everyone knows that NASA’s primary directive coming from the politically correct warm-earthers is to provide data to support their on going theories of anthropogenic global warming, come on Dr. Griffin get with it!
So when Dr. Griffin intimated that NASA resources, materials, manpower and time where being diverted to concerns outside of the operating mandate of NASA he was called ignorant and the warm-earthers demanded an apology. And we all know what a demand for an apology means today! It is a not so subtle threat for either the good Dr. to recant his previous statements or lose this job. So Dr. Griffin do, he recanted!
This is an excerpt from the NPR interview in question:
(Q)It has been mentioned that NASA is not spending as much money as it could to study climate change — global warming — from space. Are you concerned about global warming?There is nothing in Dr. Griffin’s statement that warrant’s an apology but never-the-less he was asked to renounce his personal beliefs and unlike Luther before the Diet of Worms in 1521 Dr. Griffin did!
(A)I'm aware that global warming exists. I understand that the bulk of scientific evidence accumulated supports the claim that we've had about a one degree centigrade rise in temperature over the last century to within an accuracy of 20 percent. I'm also aware of recent findings that appear to have nailed down — pretty well nailed down the conclusion that much of that is manmade. Whether that is a longterm concern or not, I can't say.
(Q)Do you have any doubt that this is a problem that mankind has to wrestle with?
(A)I have no doubt that … a trend of global warming exists. I am not sure that it is fair to say that it is a problem we must wrestle with. 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.
First of all, I don't think it's within the power of human beings to assure that the climate does not change, as millions of years of history have shown. And second of all, 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.
