Re: I don't mine a skeptic. I prefer a skeptic in this position
He's not a skeptic if he's already decided that the climate scientists are wrong and warming has stopped.
NASA just launches the satellites that get the data, they don't do any interpretation of it so whether its director is a skeptic, a denier or a believer doesn't really matter. But understanding NASA from having actually worked at NASA or been in space seems like kind of a useful thing for a job running it.
