NASA needs to clean its own house

NASA scientists have been busy debunking the new end-of-theworld movie '2012'.
Lorrie Goldstein thinks they could put their time to better use cleaning up their own act first:

... Now, if only NASA's space cadets could get their own doomsday climatologist -- James Hansen, director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies -- to stop preaching end-of-the-world hysteria about man-made global warming, they might do some good.

... Hansen, ... the first climatologist to start banging the Armageddon drum on global warming 20 years ago, keeps racing around the world hysterically preaching we only have a few years left to save the Earth ...

... how does a NASA "scientist" get to run around preaching democracy isn't working, get arrested for civil disobedience and lecture the U.S. Congress that energy company executives should be tried for "high crimes" against humanity?

If NASA is so concerned about hysterical claims of Armageddon scaring children, it should worry less about science-fiction movies and more about cleaning up its own house.

Right on, Lorrie!

There are many similarities between "2012" and Global Warming hysteria. The end of time has been predicted over the ages by many seers - unfortunately for their credibility, we carry on. I'm sure we will survive this "disaster movie". If not, there isn't a lot we can do to change the direction, so enjoy. Life is short and unpredictable. Cheers.

So if the ever trendy news media send a reporter over to NASA to ask questions about the movie 2012. What should NASA do - begin talking about the problems with global warming theories?

The NASA officials were ASKED about the movie so they ANSWERED you stupid git.

If you have a problem with the QUESTIONS that were asked then take it up with the newspaper.

Anon, you've nicely managed to completely miss the point!
