Do Not Allow Climate Change Denier to Head NASA

Target: Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader

Goal: Oppose the nomination of Jim Bridenstine, a climate change denier with strong conflicts of interest, to run NASA.

President Donald Trump’s choice to run NASA, Jim Bridenstine, is a denier of climate change who would be a massive danger to our country and our environment if the Senate votes yes on his nomination. NASA is a hugely important organization that conducts necessary research about Earth as well as space—things like climate change and devastating weather events like hurricanes. This research is one of the first things that will be put at risk under this type of incompetent leadership.

Bridenstine is a member of Congress, not a scientist, which makes him utterly unqualified to run a vital organization like NASA. In 2013 he even demanded that President Obama apologize for using NASA money to help learn about and combat global warming. And, as a Congressman, he took sizable donations from the defense and aerospace industry. If he heads up NASA, he is likely to repay those industries by catering to them through NASA and focusing on their interests instead, like weaponry and surveillance. Sign below to demand that the Senate vote no on Jim Bridenstine to head up NASA.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator McConnell,

The appointment of Jim Bridenstine to lead NASA would be a huge mistake for our country. NASA’s mission is one of scientific discovery, and is vital to America and to the world. NASA cannot possibly honor and fulfill that mission under Bridenstine.

Bridenstine is not a scientist but a politician, with political and financial ties to industry. This not only makes him unqualified to run such an important organization as NASA, but his corporate interests also give him a very clear bias. NASA’s environmental research is extremely important; recent events like Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, and the lives tragically lost illustrate just how much so. Please do not let this vital research be compromised by allowing the appointment of an unfit and dangerous administrator. I urge you to vote no on Jim Bridenstine’s nomination to head up NASA.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
