Hansen' defense the work of eco-whacko vandals, in support of his bogus "global warming" nonsense is inexcusable. NASA needs to shove him out the door, and lock it behind him.
Excerpt from Watt:
"But it is time for Dr. Jim Hansen to go. Thanks to him, GISS as a dataset is no longer impartial. We have potential bias from the gatekeeper of the data that can’t be separated from the data. If he can come to the defense of lawbreakers in the name of his global warming cause, then it is an even easier jump to allow that same bias to creep into scientific data he is responsible for and his conclusions drawn from that data."
There is no way we can allow such a canard as "the treat of 'global warming' justifies breaking the law.
And yet there are many goofballs who will agree with that execrable premise in mindless obedience to the largest scam ever perpetrated on the human race.
