NASA Scientist: Climate Change Is a Moral Matter, Like Slavery

Time to pare down NASA's budget. We can't buy common sense and American exceptionalism. Apparently they're linked to slide rules and 'The Greatest Generation'?

It is truly amazing to me that conservatives are so often dismissively labeled as "extremists," "radicals," and plain old "crazy," while leftists constantly reward their own for tossing around intellectually cheap and practically deranged statements like this one. No, global warming does not share a moral basis with slavery: slavery is fundamentally, philosophically wrong, while climate change is based on the conflicting claims of a not-personally-disinterested scientific community -- and personally, I think our crushingly unsustainable rate of spending and debt accrual is a much larger travesty for future generations than our energy usage.

Averting the worst...
