“I have no doubt 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.”
–Dr. Michael Griffin, NASA Administrator

The top NASA admininstrator, Dr. Michael Griffin, just threw more cold water on fire-breathing global warming alarmists. Griffin had the audacity to approach global warming from a logical perspective.

Yes, there is a slight global warming trend. But no, we do not know if this is necessarily a good or bad thing on balance, and there is enough evidence already to conclude that the phenomenon is not caused by people. Global warming and cooling cycles have occurred naturally since the sun was formed.

Dr. Griffin: “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. 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.”
