NASA Is Still Making Blunt Climate Change Statements (Update)

Keith's note: Despite fears that NASA will be muzzled when it comes to climate change - as has been observed at other agencies - NASA seems to be staying the course - for now.

Keith's update: More silencing of climate scientists at EPA.

EPA yanks scientists' conference presentations, including on climate change, Washington Post

"The Environmental Protection Agency has instructed two of its scientists and one contractor not to speak as planned at a scientific conference Monday in Providence, R.I., sparking criticism from some academics and congressional Democrats. The conference marks the culmination of a three-year report on the status of Narragansett Bay, New England's largest estuary, and the challenges it faces. Climate change features as a significant factor in the 500-page report, which evaluates 24 aspects of the bay and its larger watershed. The organizers intend to present a 28-page summary report of their findings in a news conference Monday."
