George W. Bush’s Mars-travaganza and global warming

mars
Tim F. at Balloon Juice notes one of the less noticed idiocies of George W. Bush:

the manned Mars program is worse than pointless. It also starved other programs that NASA has picked up over the years with real human value like monitoring global warming. I know guys doing fantastic work with real human value who lost their funding four years ago because Bush’s Moon/Mars glory projects soaked it all up.
