He] has also backed up his rhetoric with vocal support for NASA's climate missions, which have been threatened under a Trump presidency…Bridenstine's apparently genuine coming around to the facts of climate change is commendable and makes him a scientific hero of sorts…[His] public acknowledgement of manmade climate change is a stirring example of how science transcends ideology. His actions should be celebrated and replicated.” click here for more
