NASA Kills Deep Space Climate Observatory Just In Time For Global Warming Disasters

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Mother Nature as Medusa; not something we want to see! Just like they killed the Hubble Space Telescope by refusing to repair it, in this case, the observatory was already built and cost $100 million and they canned it for political reasons.

From the New York Times:
NASA has quietly terminated the Deep Space Climate Observatory, citing "competing priorities." The news media took little notice. Few Americans, after all, had even heard of the program. But the entire world may come to mourn its passing.
OK, does anyone imagine Al Gore, our real President, would have done this crime? Any crimes, for that matter? This is utterly craven, wasteful and dangerous. Understanding what is going on is literal life and death.

Mother Nature doesn't give two hoots about us, She is relentless and does what She wants and watching Her and molding our actions to suit Her is life and fricking death! This wasteful, stupid idiodicy just so we can pretend to go to bone dry Mars is sheer criminality. This planet is the most precious and valuable in the solar system if not the entire Orion arm of the Milky Way, for crying out loud! Why does NASA want to study Mars and ignore Planet fricking Homeland Earth?

Traitors to the planet. they are.

From the Independent:
Global warming is set to accelerate alarmingly because of a sharp jump in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Preliminary figures, exclusively obtained by The Independent on Sunday, show that levels of the gas - the main cause of climate change - have risen abruptly in the past four years. Scientists fear that warming is entering a new phase, and may accelerate further.
This is a must-read article. The USA, in particular, is responsible for this. As it gets hotter, we burn more coal and gas to run our inefficent, ass-backwards energy systems. Much more coal is burned to create air conditioning than anything else! The fastest growing areas are in the sunbelt and there is near zero generation of solar energy in this pig headed region that should have known better thirty years ago.

I should know, I used to lecture about this in Arizona in the seventies!
