NASA top climate scientist James Hansen to retire from Goddard Institute, sue govít

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you!

NASA’s James Hansen, director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies and a controversial and highly vocal voice of alarm about the planet’s 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 man’s effect on the climate, the New York Times reported.

Hansen was clearly aware of the irony.

“As a government employee, you can’t 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.

The guy is seriously ill. Maybe he’ll move in with Gore.

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!

Yep, if he needs a character witness on the stand I'd bet Daryl Hannah would be there for him, she's probably got bigger ones. lol

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.

So Hansen is suing the Federal Government due to its failure to prevent Global Warming which Hansen admits has not occurred in the past 15 years.

No standing.
