Award-Winning NASA Astronaut says global warming scare a political tool
17 Nov 08 - Another Dissenter: Award-Winning NASA Astronaut, Moonwalker and Geologist Dr. Jack Schmitt says 'global warming scare being used as a political tool'.

"As a geologist, I love Earth observations," says Schmitt. "But, it is ridiculous to tie this objective to a "consensus" that humans are causing global warming in when human experience, geologic data and history, and current cooling can argue otherwise. "Consensus", as many have said, merely represents the absence of definitive science. You know as well as I, the "global warming scare" is being used as a political tool to increase government control over American lives, incomes and decision making. It has no place in the Society's activities."

Schmitt Bio: Award-winning NASA astronaut/geologist Dr. Harrison H. “Jack” Schmitt, former NASA Advisory Council Chair, flew on the Apollo 17 and “assisted in the integration of scientific activities into the Apollo lunar missions and participated in research activities requiring geologic, petrographic, and stratigraphic analyses of samples returned from the moon by Apollo missions.”

Schmitt, who has also worked for the Norwegian Geological Survey and for the U.S. Geological Survey, has received numerous awards in his career including the Space Center Superior Achievement Award and the NASA Distinguished Service Medal. Schmitt is a member of the Geological Society of America, American Geophysical Union, and American Association for the Advancement of Science. Schmitt is credited with taking the famous photograph of the Earth called “The Blue Marble” considered one of the most widely distributed photographic images in existence. http://www.spaceref.com/news/viewsr.html?pid=29813
