How is this guy still working with NASA?
In a video on capitolclimateaction.org, Dr. James Hansen is seen urging Americans to “take a stand on global warming” during the March 2nd protest at the Capitol Power Plant in Southeast Washington, D.C.
“We need to send a message to Congress and the president that we want them to take the actions that are needed to preserve climate for young people and future generations and all life on the planet,” says Hansen, who has likened coal-fired power plants to “factories of death” and claims he was muzzled by the Bush administration when he warned of drastic climate changes.
“What has become clear from the science is that we cannot burn all of the fossil fuels without creating a very different planet. The only practical way to solve the problem is to phase out the biggest source of carbon — and that’s coal.”
But critics say Hansen’s latest call to action blurs the line between astronomer and activist and may violate the Hatch Act, which prohibits federal employees from participating in partisan political activity.
“Oh my goodness,” one of Hansen’s former supervisors, Dr. John Theon, told FOXNews.com when informed of the video. “I’m not surprised … The fact that Jim Hansen has gone off the deep end here is sad because he’s a good fellow.”
B.S. Report–Well, it’s obvious that Hansen is a dyed-in-the-wool global warming alarmist…whether he’s gone off the deep end or not. He certainly is no longer a fair evaluator of scientific data.
You might even argue that he’s gone out of his way to cook the books with all the inaccuracies he’s reported in the past. He has also accepted a great deal of money from green lobbyists and he’s now one of them–he needs to be replaced.
