George Jarkesy penned an op-ed after welcoming Apollo 7 Astronaut Walt Cunningham on his show on May 9. Their discussion focused on the issue of global warming and NASA’s support of the global warming “hypothesis.” The former Apollo pilot touched on NASA’s reputation of “objective science” being “endangered” when they took a “political position on an unsettled issue.” Cunningham also stated that proponents will “claim that it is settled fact” which it clearly is not. During the show Cunningham outlines scientific fact and the difference between “human caused global warming” and climate change. In Jarkesy’s op-ed he discusses America’s need to “rise up and check the facts.” He emphasizes the danger in letting “science be driven by politics” and allowing “unproven evidence” to “hamper businesses.”
