NASA performs critical climate science research - its satellites have been tracking hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Trump has nominated Jim Bridenstine, a member of Congress from Oklahoma - not a scientist - to run NASA. But Bridenstine is a climate denier. In 2013 he demanded that President Obama apologize for spending NASA money on global warming.
NASA needs to be kept out of politics. Florida's two senators, Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio, have already voiced concern about Bridenstine's political baggage.
And, equally important, NASA needs to be run by someone who respects science. Not climate denier Jim Bridenstine.
Add your name to tell the U.S. Senate: "Strongly oppose Trump's pick for NASA Administrator, climate denier Jim Bridenstine."
