The Bush team has fundamentally altered the mission of NASA in order to make it conform to an ideological agenda and for the benefit of certain party donors:

NASA’s Goals Delete Mention of Home Planet:
http://www.nytimes.com/2006....=slogin

The White House has quietly altered the mission statement of NASA, eliminating language describing part of its work -- "to understand and protect our home planet."

Quote
NASA’s mission statement, prominently featured in its budget and planning documents, read: “To understand and protect our home planet; to explore the universe and search for life; to inspire the next generation of explorers ... as only NASA can.”

In early February, the statement was quietly altered, with the phrase “to understand and protect our home planet” deleted.

Climate Expert Says NASA Tried to Silence Him

He spoke out, they tried to censor him, and now funding for research on climate science has started to disappear from NASA's budget as Bush runs roughshod over their scientific pursuits and replaces them with political and military space pursuits.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:

The fact that the USA's administration is denying that we could be affecting the climate is pretty worrying.

The fact that they are willing to fuge science to fit political policies is frightening.

The Bush government apear to be behaving in a similar way to the tobacco and "leaded" petroleum industries.

I seems global warming denial is somehow correlated to evolution denial, which is the topic of this board.

I think it might be something deeper since there is no connection between climate politics and evolution.

Except for willful ignorance of the facts of course. Maybe evolution and climate change deniers all like to wear orange.

Perhaps you should explain that to the Ohio Halfwits.

Check Chris Mooney's book "The Republican War on Science" to see the connection.
