NASA shuts down climate science deniers on Facebook.

Courtesy of IFL Science:

NASA’s comments came after Bill Nye posted a story about himself asking a prominent climate change denier to put his money where his mouth is. Nye, “the science guy,” offered two $20,000 bets to leading climate change denier Marc Morano, during an interview Morano himself had requested, that this year will be in the top 10 hottest years on record and this decade will also be the hottest on record. Alas, Morana declined the wagers. 

Unsurprisingly, Nye posting the story to his Facebook page created a rumble and summoned the keyboard-wielding trolls to the comments section below the article. Perhaps after a late-night binge on YouTube conspiracy videos, many people accused NASA of being a leading voice in promoting the “scam” of man-made climate change by skewing figures and lying to the public about its data. A few commenters also wrongly cited, or just simply made up, some previous claims of NASA. 

NASA also found it necessary to respond to this garbage.

 Don't you hate it when facts screw up your conspiracy theories?

    "Don't you hate it when facts screw up your conspiracy theories?"

    Now you KNOW these idiots don't accept facts! They're inconvenient to the fools APPEARING to know what they're talking about.

    These idiots are Flat Earthers.

    "Leftards" - Holy smokes. Its a shame that serious scientists have to respond to adults acting like children taunting them with insults. What has happened to civitas and gravitas? Oh ... the Trump has hit the fan.

    Dear Alaskan,

    Alaska’s climate is warming. While there have been warming and cooling trends before, climatologists tell us that the current rate of warming is unprecedented within the time of human civilization. Many experts predict that Alaska, along with our northern latitude neighbors, will warm at a faster pace than any other areas, and the warming will continue for decades.

    We are faced with significant questions: How fast will the climate warm? How warm will it get? What effects will the warming have? Is there anything we can do to slow the increase or the extent of the warming? Realizing that we can’t stop the warming, what can we do to adapt? And, what role should state government play in all of this?

    To get the ball rolling, I signed Administrative Order 238 in September 2007, which directs a team of my cabinet members to prepare an Alaska Climate Change Strategy for my consideration. The strategy is to serve as a guide for a thoughtful, practical, timely, state of Alaska response to climate change. It is to identify priorities needing immediate attention along with longer-term steps we can take as a state to best serve all Alaskans and to do our part in the global response to this global phenomenon.

    Respectfully, Governor $arah Palin

      Dear Alaskans, please make sure you turn off the sun at the end of the day so it can cool off the moon when the lights are off. And Bristol, stop swimming the waters of sins of the flesh, it's overheating and evaporating at a pace that surprises even our pals at NASA.
      Respectfully, Former Governor Sarah Palin

    According to a release on the Republican Party of Wyoming’s website, the Trump campaign said she would not be attending. It provided no explanation for the last-minute cancellation.

    “The Donald Trump campaign has informed the Wyoming Republican Party that Sarah Palin, the scheduled surrogate speaker for the presidential candidate, will not be attending the State GOP Convention,” the release says. “Former Governor Palin was scheduled to speak to the convention delegates Saturday morning between 10-11am along with presidential candidate Ted Cruz and John Kasich surrogate Governor Butch Otter of Idaho.”

    The quitter is at it again

    Please never let facts get in the way of self interest.

    trump and Sara believe if facts punch you, punch them back 8x as hard. And destroy the purveyors of facts. Make their lives hell.

    I understand that the Palin/Heath clan are a hillbilly mafia in Wasilla.

    As long as there was a payday, Sarah was there. Trump must have closed the checkbook.

    Maybe the appearance conflicted with a Palin family all-night kegger

    Don't understand why she keeps opening her mouth. She has no relevance other that to confirm her dumbness. Remember you have the right to remain silent as it WILL be used against you.
