James Hansen, one of Al Gores closest allies, has given thousands of speeches and written enough papers to kill a medium-sized forest. Yet he repeatedly says he was muzzled by the Bush administration.
Oops. Hansens former boss, retired senior NASA atmospheric scientist, Dr. John Theon, says Hansens claims are nonsense.
Hansen was never muzzled even though he violated NASAs official agency position on climate forecasting (i.e., we did not know enough to forecast climate change or mankinds effect on it). Hansen thus embarrassed NASA by coming out with his claims of global warming in 1988 in his testimony before Congress, Theon said.
Damn those inconvenient truths! Damn them to hell!
James Hansen (quote), from October 2004:
"Several years ago I received the Heinz Environment Award. I don't know who nominated me for that award or how the selection works."
"I am confident that it has no impact on my evaluation of the climate problem or on my political leanings."
"In the upcoming election I will vote for John Kerry."

NASA's Hansen Mentioned in [George] Soros Foundation's Annual Report:
Science = Fraud. Want proof? Global Warming.
If science was honest, scientists would have come forward and told the truth about global warming and how science is being used to put forth a political agenda.
This won’t stop him from mouthing off. He’s Al Gore’s favorite toady-scientist.
There are fraudulent scientists, but that doesn't mean Science = Fraud, any more than a poster writing "Science = Fraud" indicates all FReepers are idiotic jackasses.
