Nobody expects the Spanish inquisition

This article wonderfully highlights my comments on the media's fervor regarding global warming and its religious faithful's attempts to squelch the voice of the dissenters.

The head of NASA told scientists and engineers that he regrets airing his personal views about global warming during a recent radio interview, according to a video of the meeting obtained by The Associated Press.

NASA administrator Michael Griffin said in the closed-door meeting Monday at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena that “unfortunately, this is an issue which has become far more political than technical, and it would have been well for me to have stayed out of it.”

“All I can really do is apologize to all you guys.... I feel badly that I caused this amount of controversy over something like this,” he said.
Its political correctness gone mad. You can't even voice your own opinion regarding global warming unless it coincides perfectly with Prophet Gore's vision. For Pete's sake, the guy didn't even say he didn't believe it -- he just said he wasn't sure it was going to be a crisis. BAM! Excommunicated from the Church of the Climate Faithful.

Here's the problem; NASA's own data shows golbal warming is becoming problematic.

It's a bit like the Chief of Naval Operations saying aircraft carriers are becoming unnecessary.

Data cannot show that something is becoming problematic. Interpretation of data can.

NASA's satellite data has shown that we are in a global warming period, not that we're all going to die.

He looked at the data and drew a different conclusion, and everyone is acting like he's some kind of terrible person for it.

See the catch?

PS Are you in the Navy or do you just work for them? I find your point of view intriguing if you're a sailor.
