The #OCO2 countdown was stopped at T-46 seconds because of a failure in the launch pad water flow. There will be no launch today.

Blame it on global warming.

Great.

Unfortunately we will still have people that deny CO2 levels are changing.

I have not heard that said, please provide some links.

What I have heard said, is that human CO2 release into Earth atmosphere is not causing climate change, but rather climate change is a natural cycle closely tied to our sun. I have also heard it said that human CO2 release is causing climate change which will eventually become self perpetuating.

I don't know which side of the issue is correct.

What I do know is that both sides of the issue are heavy on politics and light on science. To make matters worse, some of the scientists involved seem to be politically rife as well.

Some of the most unreasonable deniers don't even recognize when they disagree with themselves.

I just heard that this launch has been scratched. No word why or when another attempt will be tried.
