NASA Head Regrets Telling Truth About GW

From those lovers of Gaia at the Associated Press:

NASA Head Says He Regrets Global Warming Comments

(AP) PASADENA, Calif. NASA Administrator Michael Griffin has told scientists and engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena he erred when he aired his personal views about global warming during a recent radio interview.

In a video of the Monday meeting obtained by The Associated Press, Griffin said “Unfortunately, this is an issue which has become far more political than technical and it would have been well for me to have stayed out of it.”

Griffin made headlines last week when he told a National Public Radio interviewer he wasn’t sure global warming was a problem.

The radio interview angered some climate scientists, who called his remarks ignorant.

Griffin reiterated that NASA’s job is to provide scientific data on global warming and leave it up to policy makers to decide what to do with it.

It looks like Mr. Griffin was taken to the woodshed for actually telling the truth.

Ah, scientific rigor.
