Posted on 04/01/2013 7:01:59 PM PDT by Rocky
James E. Hansen, the climate scientist who issued the clearest warning of the 20th century about the dangers of global warming, will retire from NASA this week, giving himself more freedom to pursue political and legal efforts to limit greenhouse gases. Science Times Podcast
Marveling at the efficiency of a killer in the skies and NASAs household name on climate change takes his fight for the earths future into retirement.
His departure, after a 46-year career at the space agencys Goddard Institute for Space Studies in Manhattan, will deprive federally sponsored climate research of its best-known public figure.

The modern satellite based systems started up about 20 years back ~ maybe a little more if you add in the CIA and Air Force intelligence satellite systems. These systems report an incredibly stable temperature apparently unaffected by CO2 levels.
With the implosion of the AGW charade, Hansen has seen the writing on the wall and is taking the money and running. I would not be surprised if he has a very nicely accommodated vacation home on some obscure Pacific island to retire to where nobody can find him except, maybe, Al Gore.
Indeed. While still an Iowa teen he was studying with fellow Iowan James Van Allen who was doing NASA stuff before there was actually a NASA!
If Hansen had gone to Iowa State instead of leftist outhouse hole University of Iowa, he would have been a decent human being.
Yes, it is pretty nauseating to see the NYT glorify this bag of wind. But what do you expect from the Slimes?
Almost every sentence in the article is dishonest. Hansen is not a scientist. Hansen has been wrong about everything he said. He pushed the fraudulent global warming agenda and demanded political action.
‘I wonder if he ever did anything useful for them.’
He will forever be known for ending the NASA manned space program. Way to go Jimmy baby.
At least there is money for reparations now.
Yeah, right. He is just licking his chops after seeing the bag of loot that Algore has made peddling his charade. As a willing accomplice, he is just wanting his fair share.
Algore knew how to make some real money off of the deal. Hansen may get some speaking fees, and maybe he's written a book (did he? - if so, I'm sure it sold at least a hundred copies), but he is a pauper compared to Algore. There must be some professional jealousy.
God All Mighty, free at last....
Isn't Hansen the one (of the US GW frauds) that got funding from Soros to "polish" his image, delivery, and story?
Looks like a bunch of Old White Guys.
And it's April Fools' Day, so I will always remember the day.
He'll likely drop dead while doing during his first Metamucil commercial.
An honorable man would commit hari kari after convincing so few to make policy that harmed so many based on nothing but bs.
A government employee who acts and lies as if they are going up against the government, but in reality they are just brainwashing a group of citizens into a position the government wants them to occupy.
McLame is another on who has sucked the taxpayer teat for toooo long.
You mean, like his whole life?
