Director of National Intelligence BertGoldberg (NF-NY) proposes Climate for Space Act
Bill fails @BertGoldberg
This would be a death sentence to the human race.
This must look great to new VC recruits.
Nay. Take the money out of something that doesn't need it instead.
Nay, why would we stop researching the threat posed by climate change?
Just cut it. Don't go wasting it elsewhere.
Nay. Diverting isn't the answer.
I'd rather cut it. But it's important to privatize climate research. Leaving it in the hands of the government increases the likelihood of politicization, rather than scientifically rigorous research to determine what change is actually happening.
But who would fund climate change research? Such research is really only profitable for renewable energy companies and oil companies. Neither are exactly unbiased.
👍 Great bill. Huge yea!
I most vote nay for the sake of moderation. Such a swing of funds could be distablizing to both causes.
Nay. Firstly, we need climate research, and research can't be effectively handled by the market unless there's a direct profit motivation. Secondly, climate research is under NASA purview.
Nay, just give the spending back to the American taxpayers.
Nay. The deficit is too large and the debt just keeps growing more. I would support cutting the EPA budget without diverting the money to NASA.
As much as I love NASA, climate change research should increase if anything. Sorry, nay.
Sure, let's just keep pouring money into junk science
97% science supporting the point that human caused change and that we need action, i wouldn't call it "junk science". I'll choose environment and the future over economic gain any day.
Just because 97% of scientists say a phenomenon occurs doesn't mean that what they're saying is true. That is an ad Populum fallacy. In addition, no scientific theory can be 100% accurate. The climate could just naturally be changing like it has for the last 4.5 billion years of its existence.
It's just that the EXPERTS are more knowledgeable. Pragmatism my friends.
Appeal to authority
Cut it, don't divert it.
Once we get to lunar mining, we will have an extremely valuable economy, this expedites that.
Great Idea! This way when earth is drowned we can just move to Mars!
Climate for Space Act
1. Climate change research will come to a complete standstill and the money spent on climate change research will be diverted 100% to NASA.
*Climate Change research will be something that the private industry can handle.
