Donate to Operation Uncover DSCOVR - we need your help!

Step up DeSmogBlog fans. We need your help in finding out who killed the Deep Space Observatory project.

The more donations we receive the more resources we can throw behind this project. We have an opportunity to shine the light on the politics behind global warming at their worst. Click here to donate, it all adds up, so whatever you can afford.

And here's the cheeky DSCOVR “advertisement” we are sending around the blog-o-sphere. Enjoy!

I’m sold…and the Ukraine offered to launch it for free? What are the operating costs?

A few mill to launch, but hey, only about $25,000 for us to research the heck out of this thing, pressure congress and others to pay for it themselves!

Can’t they just crush the satellite? I’ve heard prices for scrap metal are pretty good nowadays. ;)

It’s a really small satellite - only stand about 10 ft. high. Probably not worth much as scrap. Better to send it to space.

Visiting the NASA site, it says the satellite’s status is TBD, to be determined. It probably will be launched sometime in the future.

5 years in a box at $1 million a year in storage costs and no sign yet. I think the current administration would like this to slip quietly into the night.

After the loss of the shuttle Columbia, NASA also said they would never send another shuttle to the Hubble telescope either. Even though there was $250 million dollars worth of parts to repair and upgrade the telescope, it was decided to let the Hubble fade away.

And what is the worthy cause? To “pressure” congress to launch a satellite (spewing tons and tons of evil greenhouse gasses in the process). I wonder if it has ocurred to them how likely a foreign government will care about what a Vancouver PR company has to say.

Oh, sure. It all sounds pretty far-fetched, but never mind that. This is no time for doubt, people! That’s just playiing right into the hands of the Deniaralist Conspiracy. Just send money. Operators are standing by.

Climate migrants

In a sign of things to come, a report by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives says Ottawa should create a new “climate migrants” immigration class to prepare for the inflow of people fleeing extreme climate change.

Estimates of the number of climate-influenced migrants range widely, but most projections agree that in the coming years climate change will compel hundreds of millions of people to...
