The positive comments about his qualifications are copied off of his congressional biography page.

Some of them, yes...   and that makes them less valid?

Apparently some people like him....  But then again, I hear you can't trust Forbes or those who write articles for it.

Some praising of HR 353.  Here it is if anyone is interested.  Became Public Law No: 115-25.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/353

Section 303 is quite literally an attempt to stop NOAA from taking measurements and gathering data that might be used to confirm climate change - "must avoid".  I am sure Exxon and BP have plenty of data available to share so that NOAA doesn't need to do that...

Of particular note (Section 201) is the requirement to try and predict weather from days to as much as 2 years.  Why the very specific exclusion of 5, 10, 50 years??  Oh,...that's right...I remember...

WOuldn't be the first "Denier" we have had as head of NASA.

Quote
I have no doubt that global—that a trend of global warming exists. I am not sure that it is fair to say that it is a problem we must wrestle with. To assume that it is a problem is to assume that the state of Earth's climate today is the optimal climate, the best climate that we could have or ever have had and that we need to take steps to make sure that it doesn't change.
First of all, I don't think it's within the power of human beings to assure that the climate does not change, as millions of years of history have shown, and second of all, I guess I would ask which human beings - where and when - are to be accorded the privilege of deciding that this particular climate that we have right here today, right now is the best climate for all other human beings. I think that's a rather arrogant position for people to take.

All though in some circles this comment would be considered quite sane. But not at NASA. No agenda there.

Those circles are science deniers. And therefore should be disqualified from running a science organization.
