NASA's Enemy of Climate Change Reporting Resigns, with False Credentials
George C. Deutsch worked at NASA until yesterday. This was the guy who didn't want to let reporters talk to NASA scientists who believe that there is in fact a climate change problem--or other science issues that did not follow the Bush administration line. He's also the one who would not let the agency utter the phrase "Big Bang" without following it with "Theory."
According to his resume, he graduated from Texas A&M University in 2003. According to the university, however, in a document released yesterday, he did no such thing. He attended, but never finished.
He's only 24, but you'd think by now he'd have figured out a cardinal rule: never lie on your resume. Not only is it unethical, but it's awfully easy to catch if anyone bothers to check.
