NASA’s Goals Delete Mention of Home Planet

Starting in 2002 and up until this year, NASA’s mission statement had included the following text: “To understand and protect our home planet; to explore the universe and search for life; to inspire the next generation of explorers… as only NASA can.”

According to an article in today’s New York Times, that statement was quietly altered in early February and the phrase “to understand and protect our home planet” was deleted- a fact which is just now beginning to dawn in significance to NASA researchers. As Times writer Andrew Revkin tells us, the agency’s mission is now simply “to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research.”

Far be it from me to suspect they’re doing anything other than saving ink, right? Yeah. Sure. I’m more likely to suspect- along with conspiracy researcher Victor Thorn– that the Illuminati bastards have already built their interstellar lifeboats and therefore no longer have any reservations about ripping every molecule of extractable value out of this ball- before tossing it aside like a squeezed orange.

What could possibly be the reason for codifying this change in attitude? Why of course- to ensure that the totalitarian pyramid I call “The Anti-Earth Doctrine” is enforced in all ways possible- from its scaly pointy top all the way down to its fleshy pink bottom.

Here’s another tidbit- there’s a little bone of contention the current administration has with overly Earth-friendly interpretations of NASA’s mission. Revkin says that the ‘understand and protect’ phrase “was cited repeatedly by James E. Hansen, a climate scientist at NASA who said publicly last winter that he was being threatened by political appointees for speaking out about the dangers posed by greenhouse gas emissions. Dr. Hansen’s comments started a flurry of news media coverage in late January; on Feb. 3, Mr. Griffin issued a statement of ‘scientific openness.'”

Scientific Openness. See, we can’t have that. Might make for an uncomfortable space defense fundraiser dinner. Or something worse: public awareness of our politicians’ total lack of concern for our Home Planet.
