On Friday, the head of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration was rebuked by republican lawmakers. They said that the agency's obsession with global warming is weakening space exploration programs.
According to Texas Rep. Lamar Smith, "There are 13 other agencies involved in climate change research, but only one that is responsible for space exploration. The administration continues to starve NASA's exploration programs to fund a partisan environmental agenda. NASA simply deserves better".
