A Few Things Ill Considered

James Hansen on DemocracyNow!

I found this YouTube clip via Crooks and Liars of James Hansen on Democracy Now. It also contains some highlights of other Democracy Now interviews, including one of Science Blogs’ own Chris Mooney.

He talks about the political muzzling he has experience under both parties during his time at NASA. (But don’t the denialists tell us of collusion between scaremongering politicians and money grubbing scientists?

Funny how the denialists tell us of collusion between scaremongering politicians and money grubbing scientists and yet the reality is NASA’s earth sciences budget being cut and political appointees trying to shut scientists up.

Okay, not so funny…

    Did you notice (somewhat before 6:30, again 7:20-7:31) that Hansen was labelled a ‘Climate Scientologist’?

    I wonder what that would be.
