NASA will no longer mess with climate change denialists on Facebook

NASA on climate change: Official Facebook account smacks down dissenters, news.com.au  APRIL 19, 2016  WHEN it comes to climate change, don’t mess with NASA.

The space agency has shut down climate changers in the best possible way in an ongoing Facebook discussion.

The agency, which has a NASA Climate Change Facebook page, is used to dealing with sceptics and deniers.

But one comment made last week saw the agency pounce and the comments have kept flowing since, coming faster than melting ice.

It all started after a post by the science guy Bill Nye who was talking about a climate change denier refusing his $20,000 bet that the planet will keep getting hotter.

But the thread was quickly hijacked by climate deniers.

Facebook user Fer Morales argued NASA confirmed fossil fuels were actually cooling the planet, but the agency jumped straight on it, firing back: “Do not misrepresent NASA. Fossil fuels are not cooling the planet.”……..http://www.news.com.au/technology/environment/climate-change/nasa-on-climate-change-official-facebook-account-smacks-down-dissenters/news-story/25219d16e4478ce851046d22b1620b63
