Washington, DC) House Science and Technology Committee Chairman Bart Gordon (D-TN) responded to remarks that NASA Administrator Michael Griffin made to National Public Radio (NPR) in an interview that aired on today's Morning Edition.
Chairman Gordon's comment follows:
"Setting aside NASA Administrator Griffin's personal views on the significance of global warming, I remain concerned that NASA is not doing as much as needs to be done on climate change data collection and research. Based on NASA's own five-year budget plan, the agency will be unable to start any of the new Earth observations initiatives recommended by the National Academies for the foreseeable future. That's not going to get us where we need to be in our understanding of climate change. NASA needs to do more."
