Today, the Senate confirmed polarizing NASA nominee Jim Bridenstine on a polarized party line vote, 50-49.
RL Miller of Climate Hawks Vote states; “I want to thank the tens of thousands of Climate Hawks Vote activists who signed petitions, called, wrote letters, and spoke out against this unqualified climate denier. Scientific integrity matters at NASA. I hope the new administrator begins to listen to career employees rather than engage in political grandstanding. I hope he doesn’t follow through on his bill, written as a member of Congress, to end NASA’s earth science research. We’ll be watching.
“Also, what Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI) said.”
