Radio host Rush Limbaugh came down hard Monday on NASA's claim of finding water on Mars, stating that the dubious science would be used to promote the climate change agenda here on Earth.

Limbaugh read from a U.S. News & World Report article on the finding, saying, "quote, 'Eons ago, ancient Mars had "an extensive atmosphere," along with "an ocean two-thirds the size of the northern hemisphere and a mile deep," said Jim Green, director of planetary science at NASA said during a press conference on Monday.'

"Okay, now, look, how do they know that?" he said.

"How do they know that there was an ocean two-thirds the size of the northern hemisphere and that it was a mile deep? We haven't been there. We haven't probed a mile down on Mars."

Limbaugh warned his audience to "realize all this stuff is not based on any data whatsoever. It's all based on computer models predicting things.

"This guy, Mr. Green, Jim Green at NASA, may be a perfectly nice guy, but, I'm sorry, the days where I listen to some scientist come out and say, 'Yeah, two-thirds of Mars used to be covered with water and it was a mile deep,' because what comes next, he's the director of planetary science at NASA, and he said, 'After an unknown catastrophe, "Mars suffered a major climate change and lost its surface water."'"

Limbaugh then asserted that Green's words slide easily into the climate change cause back on the home planet.

"Now, doesn't that fit amazingly well with the scaremongering they are engaging in about planet Earth?" he said.

"Was it Mars' version of Hurricane Katrina, do you think? Was there a President Bush on Mars at the time? … I'm not joking here. I'm really serious about this. An unknown catastrophe, unknown. How do we know that? If we're gonna admit that it was an unknown catastrophe, how in the name of Sam Hill do we know what it was and that it was brought on by climate change?

"Yes siree bob, that's what it was, folks. After an unknown catastrophe, Mars suffered a major climate change and lost its surface water."

Limbaugh referenced a 2007 National Geographic article that claimed the sun was to blame for climate change on Mars.

"In 2007, February 28, National Geographic, 'Mars Melt Hints at Solar, Not Human, Cause for Warming, Scientist Says.' This is National Geographic eight years ago saying that data that we had collected on Mars now tends to indicate that it's the sun, and not man, that's causing changes on earth. Do you think anybody today is gonna go back and revisit that story in light of the discovery of flowing water on Mars?

"Sorry, folks, I'm not buying any of it. The evidence suggests that you shouldn't either….

"I think this is – word for this – not 'criminal.' But this is dangerously incompetent. This is the attempted manipulation of people. To me this is hideous, to try to make something like this certain without doubt. "
