I don't mine a skeptic. I prefer a skeptic in this position

I consider myself a skeptic(*).

I think that it's vitally important that NASA be out there objectively gathering the data. Not funding preconceived conclusion, except to the extent that they are testing a theory.

The worst case would be someone in charge that is a denier or a believer. There isn't a reason to gather objective data when you already know the answer.

* Climate change happens. It's been happening forever. The open question is if man's activity has a negligible effect, has a dominate role causing rapid negative change, or if we are pushing the climate over a tipping point.
