NASA = An independent agency of the United States government responsible for aviation and spaceflight.
Why should they be doing anything other that what their purpose it?

I've wondered the same thing. That's like having the FAA doing research in drug and alcohol consumption.

Regarding going to the moon or space travel, that's something that should be left for private companies to do.

I think that there are now only about three people in the world who still believe that Mann's data was false that aren't being paid by Exxon or The Heritage Foundation.

And you proudly wear that on your forehead.

Yeah, but that's for how it relates to flying aircraft. Even if CO2 had some effect on the performance or capacity of aircraft to fly (including effects on engines & fuel), that's a different context from the question of what detrimental impact CO2 has on the environment, whether natural or man made.
