TP: NASA quietly had its mission statement changed

Think Progress quotes the NYT regarding a story that NASA's mission statement was quietly changed by the White House--are they that afraid of global warming?: "NASA quietly had its mission statement changed last February by the White House, who deleted the phrase “to understand and protect our home planet.” NASA scientists were surprised to learn of the change. “Without it, these scientists say, there will be far less incentive to pursue projects to improve understanding of terrestrial problems like climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions.”"
