    • By symbolic, do you mean meaningless?

      That would be accurate & precise.

      • Editor's Note: This is the text of the letter sent by 49 former NASA employees to the agency asking it to stay out of what they see as a politicized and unsubstantiated field — human-caused global warming. It was originally posted on the blog Watts Up With That?

        A NASA spokesman confirmed that the agency received the letter on Tuesday (April 11). [Read the full story about the letter]

        March 28, 2012

        The Honorable Charles Bolden, Jr.
        NASA Administrator
        NASA Headquarters
        Washington, D.C. 20546-0001

        Dear Charlie,

        We, the undersigned, respectfully request that NASA and the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) refrain from including unproven remarks in public releases and websites. We believe the claims by NASA and GISS, that man-made carbon dioxide is having a catastrophic impact on global climate change are not substantiated, especially when considering thousands of years of empirical data. With hundreds of well-known climate scientists and tens of thousands of other scientists publicly declaring their disbelief in the catastrophic forecasts, coming particularly from the GISS leadership, it is clear that the science is NOT settled.

        The unbridled advocacy of CO2 being the major cause of climate change is unbecoming of NASA’s history of making an objective assessment of all available scientific data prior to making decisions or public statements.

        As former NASA employees, we feel that NASA’s advocacy of an extreme position, prior to a thorough study of the possible overwhelming impact of natural climate drivers is inappropriate. We request that NASA refrain from including unproven and unsupported remarks in its future releases and websites on this subject. At risk is damage to the exemplary reputation of NASA, NASA’s current or former scientists and employees, and even the reputation of science itself.

        (Cont.)

    • No worries.

      CO2 has negligible effect, except on plant life, where it's beneficial.

      World has cooled since 1998 or earlier, despite more CO2.

      Was warmer in 1934 than 1998, which was a super El Nino year.
