Earlier this month, President Donald Trump nominated Jim Bridenstine -- a Republican representative in Oklahoma -- as NASA's new leader. Like most people in this administration, Bridenstine actively supports ideas antithetical to his (soon-to-be) agency: he's an avid supporter of private space companies and denies that human activity impacts climate change. Now, Bridenstine wants to take a seemingly good idea -- studying Mars' weather -- and turn it into a misleading talking point about climate change on Earth. Probably.
