Talk about biting the hand that feeds you!
NASAs James Hansen, director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies and a controversial and highly vocal voice of alarm about the planets changing climate, will retire as the director of the space institute, NASA announced Tuesday -- and plans to immediately sue his former employer.
Hansen will step down from his $180,000 a year position to join a number of lawsuits challenging the federal and state governments for their failure to police industry over mans effect on the climate, the New York Times reported.
Hansen was clearly aware of the irony.
As a government employee, you cant testify against the government, he told the Times.
Hansen is a central figure in the battle against climate change; on Feb. 13, he was arrested alongside of actress Daryl Hannah, activist Bill McKibben and a small group of activists protesting the planned Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada to the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

He went down the street to now head up the Ministry of Silly Walks.
The guy is seriously ill. Maybe he’ll move in with Gore.
I’m thinking of a word - fraud - that’s the word.
Sheesh! And Obama will appoint his successor who will capitulate and provide him and whatever front org he heads with as much taxpayer dollars as he wants.
Amen to that, and he and algore would hit it off well together.
Isn’t this basically the case of the kid who kills his parents and then pleads for mercy because he is an orphan?
In both cases I think it takes a rather large set of balls to pull it off.
Depends, does James Hansen do “body massages”? Big Al is a “hands on” sort of guy!
Sounds like a man who is going down, bitterly clinging to his hockey stick...
He’ll just be replaced by another true believer.
Prick’s getting out while the getting is good.
We’ve got an inch of fresh snow on the ground at my location right now (upstate New York). The temperature outside is below freezing.
The forecast is for more of the same tonight and tomorrow.
He is one of the most self righteous POS’s out there.
***Pricks getting out while the getting is good.****
Driving an extra large, gas guzzling SUV getaway vehicle I would bet;)
