Help Wanted: NASA Administrator — Must Have Own Slide Rule, DVD Copy of “An Inconvenient Truth”

There’s a good chance there will be a job opening at NASA in coming months.

NASA administrator Michael Griffin, in an NPR interview, has doubts about man-made global warming:

I have no doubt that global — 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.

If Al Gore has anything to say about it (and/or a Democrat is elected president next year), this guy is history. Global warming “science” is a discipline not unlike that seen in The Godfather — “Never go against the family.”

Griffin is going to have to quickly change his tune, or else end up sleeping with the unemployed and too-warm fishes.
