Global Warming: NASA's Own Scientist Says Climate Change is Bogus

NASA is considered a leading authority on the science of anthropogenic global warming, and the space agency employs numerous experts in the field of climatology to research climate change. However, one of NASA's former scientists recently said he no longer believes in climate change, claiming the term is meaningless.

By many reports, Professor Leslie Woodcock is a former NASA scientist who has dismissed the idea that carbon dioxide, which the global warming community has long decried as the main culprit in climate change, is on the rise. His opinion is in direct contradiction to NASA's assertions that carbon dioxide levels are rising and are currently at their highest level in 650,000 years.

Dr. Woodcock is an emeritus professor at the University of Manchester School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science in the UK. During an interview in early 2014 with Neil Hudson of the Yorkshire Evening Post, Dr. Woodcock made numerous statements that contradict the findings of the fifth climate assessment from the United Nations International Panel on Climate Change. According to Hudson, when he asked Dr. Woodcock about global warming, the former NASA scientist just laughed. 

Here are some of the statements NASA's former scientist made to the Yorkshire Evening Post that indicate he no longer accepts that global warming is a crisis, nor that humans caused it.
  • "The theory is that the CO2 emitted by burning fossil fuel is the ‘greenhouse gas’ [that] causes ‘global warming’ — in fact, water is a much more powerful greenhouse gas and there is 20 times more of it in our atmosphere (around one per cent of the atmosphere) whereas CO2 is only 0.04 percent."
  • “There is no reproducible scientific evidence CO2 has significantly increased in the last 100 years."
  • “Carbon dioxide has been made out to be some kind of toxic gas but the truth is it’s the gas of life. We breathe it out, plants breathe it in. The green lobby has created a do-good industry and it becomes a way of life, like a religion. I understand why people defend it when they have spent so long believing in it, people do not like to admit they have been wrong."
  • “If you talk to real scientists who have no political interest, they will tell you there is nothing in global warming. It’s an industry which creates vast amounts of money for some people."
  • “Even the term ‘global warming’ does not mean anything unless you give it a time scale. The temperature of the earth has been going up and down for millions of years, if there are extremes, it’s nothing to do with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, it’s not permanent and it’s not caused by us. Global warming is nonsense.”
