Climate Change Satellite Crashes into Ocean: God or Republicans to Blame?
Religious fanatics with a Republican leaning; as if there were any other types, rejoiced Friday morning as NASA’s Glory mission satellite (link) failed to reach orbit and plunged into the depths of the big blue.
Surely this must be another sign that God and Conservatives are correct in dispelling the notion of scientific proof of global warming? Somewhere in the Midwest or South, a reverend of some church stated, “God smite the evil medium of enlightenment! And it crashed into oblivion, taking with it an entire future filled with accurate data of our blight on this world!”
Take what you will from this setback, but it all starts with math and science in our schools. NASA better look to the Chinese, Russians or French next time they want to blast a satellite into the atmosphere. A satellite that humanity may depend on far more than we realize.
These countries still have public schools that teach radical subjects like evolution, math and science. They also toss satellites into the atmosphere with regularity.
You can do it NASA! But please, no more fodder for those who keep their heads planted firmly in the sand, another failure and the lemming herds will multiply.
