James Hansen, the NASA ‘scientist’ in charge of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) is a radical environmentalist whacko and proponent of genocide.


Before the Global Warming craze he was a proponent of the theory that the world is coming to a new Ice Age.

Prominent NASA global warming alarmist Dr. James Hansen has endorsed an eco-fascist book that calls for cities to be razed to the ground, industrial civilization to be destroyed and genocidal population reduction measures to be implemented in the name of preventing climate change.

Hansen, who was back in the news today commenting on a NASA press release that claims the last decade was the warmest on record, said that Keith Farnish, author of a new book called Time’s Up, is correct in calling for acts of sabotage and environmental terrorism in blowing up dams and demolishing cities in order to return the planet to the agrarian age.

Hansen is a key figure in the global warming movement, for it was his 1988 with testimony to a US Senate committee chaired by Al Gore that really got the ball rolling for the elite in their mission to hijack the environmental movement and promote apocalyptic fears of climate change as a means of seizing absolute power over humanity.

Welcome to James Hansen’s Brave New World:

It is long past time for the eco-zealots to be flushed out of GISS and their other federally funded bastions!

In the meantime Nancy Pelosi and her entourage racked up huge expenses in their attempt to sign away American sovereignty in Copenhagen!

They’re starting to call it Climate Expensegate!

We need to throw all of these bums out in November!


The Commonwealth Foundation has called for an independent investigation of Michael Mann the Hockey Stick Czar separate from the Penn State ongoing investigation.

You might remember Michael Mann’s starring role in the Climategate video:

More here!

And now it comes out that Michael Mann was awarded $500 Million of Your Money as part of the stimulus bill!

How much more of that money went to frauds and hoaxes?

Here is the self aggrandizing one at Copenhagen:

Hey, Barack, you want to reduce our dependence on foreign oil?  Try Drill Here, Drill Now!

Give us the opportunity you are giving to Brazil by fronting them billions of our dollars to develop their offshore oil reserves!

Now you want to give away billions more of our dollars to third world countries.

You certainly have driven us further than we ever have before, to the brink of bankruptcy.

America is being held hostage like Gulliver ensnared by lilliputian minds.

In a surprising move, the United States Department of Energy on Monday morning issued a “Litigation Hold Notice” directing its employees to preserve all documents and data relating to the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia.

A litigation hold order requires all personnel to preserve the information in anticipation that it may become evidence in judicial or investigative actions.

What this means is that enough traction has been gained by the climategate revelations that the Inspector General in the Department of Energy now realizes that the agency may be liable if it destroys any information relevant to the case.  One would wish that the order were broader and included other US agencies including the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration and the NASA Goddard Institute as well, but it is an important first step in securing evidence.

From the order:

DOE-SR has received a “Litigation Hold Notice” from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) General Council and the DOE Office of Inspector General regarding the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in England. Accordingly, they are requesting that SRNS, SRR and other Site contractors locate and preserve all documents, records, data, correspondence, notes, and other materials, whether official or unofficial, original or duplicative, drafts or final versions, partial or complete that may relate to the global warming, including, but not limited to, the contract files, any related correspondence files, and any records, including emails or other correspondence, notes, documents, or other material related to this contract, regardless of its location or medium on which it is stored. In other words, please preserve any and all documents relevant to “global warming, the Climate Research Unit at he University of East Anglia In England, and/or climate change science.”

Update:

The Litigation Hold Notice appears to have been triggered by a letter from Senator Inhofe (see copy below) which was written back on November 30th.  Why did it take two full weeks for the DOE to comply?

Climate Rationalists, also called skeptics, are holding a Counter-Conference in Copenhagen to lay out the climate facts!

They challenge the Global Warmists to prove their allegations with science so they can be debunked using science!

Sounds like a plan to us, though I doubt it will get any traction in the media!

Here is an overview:

Here’s an interview!

And Another:

At the Global Warming Cult Conference Saudi Arabia spoke out against the proceedings specifically citing the revelations of climategate:

Belief in Global Warming has now fallen to less than 50% of the U.S. population.

More on the EPA move against the U.S. economy here!

An example of Data Fudging from Darwin Australia!

The statists at the EPA have made their bid for control of the economy of the United States of America and destroy any semblance of rights of American citizens.

Here is the EPA announcement:

Here is Senator Inhofe’s response:

Glen Beck interviews David Kreutzer of the Heritage Foundation:

If you have not yet woken to the fact that all American liberties are under assault by this Statist regime your time is rapidly running out.

The EPA announced this in the face of the climategate revelations about fraud and deceit in the climate science arena by the key proponents of Global Warming, and the overwhelming evidence that mankind is not the cause of climate change.  We are truly being slipped into the chains of slavery by the know nothings of the left wing.

Here’s the lame White House justification for the EPA announcement:

It’s not our fault, the Supreme Court made us do it!

Here the EPA Administrator, Lisa Jackson, says that there is nothing to the Climategate scandal:

The Most Influential Tree in The World

Coming to light in recent days has been one of the most extraordinary scientific detective stories of our time, bizarrely centred on a single tree in Siberia dubbed “the most influential tree in the world”. On this astonishing tale, it is no exaggeration to say, could hang in considerable part the future shape of our civilisation. Right at the heart of the sound and fury of “Climategate” – the emails leaked from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) in East Anglia – is one story of scientific chicanery, overlooked by the media, whose implications dwarf all the rest. If all those thousands of emails and other documents were leaked by an angry whistle-blower, as now seems likely, it was this story more than any other that he or she wanted the world to see.

Understanding Climategate’s Hidden Decline

First and foremost — contrary to what you’ve likely read elsewhere in the blogosphere or heard from the few policymakers and pundits actually addressing the issue, it was not the temperature decline the planet has been experiencing since 1998 that Jones and friends conspired to hide. Certainly, the simple fact that the e-mail was sent in November of 1999 should allay any such confusion.

Why won’t American Media Broadcasters cover the scandal?

Could they be so invested in their socialist ideology that they would not report the truth when it slapped them in the face?  Heh, like we need to ask that question!  Of course they are.

At least Canadians are getting the straight scoop:

Fox News has been the only broadcaster consistently reporting the news on this.  Here Sean Hannity interviews Congressman James Inhofe:

And here Bill Hemmer moderates debate between Jonah Goldberg of National Review and Nat Keohane of the Environmental Defense Fund:

The wave of publicity for Climategate has reached near biblical proportions.

But enquiring minds want to know: “Who opened the flood gates?

James Hansen of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies?

Tom Wigley, recently retired from the National Center for Atmospheric Research?

Or one of a number of other candidates?

I’m thinking this guy might be a contender!

No one knows for sure, no one has stepped forward to accept the credit, and the official party and media line is that the files were ‘hacked’ by some unnamed and unknowable computer geek.

So here is our scientific poll!

Sarah Palin made the following statement on her facebook page urging President Obama not to travel to Copenhagen for the Glodal Warming Summit:

Mr. President: Boycott Copenhagen; Investigate Your Climate Change “Experts”

The president’s decision to attend the international climate conference in Copenhagen needs to be reconsidered in light of the unfolding Climategate scandal. The leaked e-mails involved in Climategate expose the unscientific behavior of leading climate scientists who deliberately destroyed records to block information requests, manipulated data to “hide the decline” in global temperatures, and conspired to silence the critics of man-made global warming. I support Senator James Inhofe’s call for a full investigation into this scandal. Because it involves many of the same personalities and entities behind the Copenhagen conference, Climategate calls into question many of the proposals being pushed there, including anything that would lead to a cap and tax plan.

Policy should be based on sound science, not snake oil. I took a stand against such snake oil science when I sued the federal government over its decision to list the polar bear as an endangered species despite the fact that the polar bear population has increased. I’ve never denied the reality of climate change; in fact, I was the first governor to create a subcabinet position to deal specifically with the issue. I saw the impact of changing weather patterns firsthand while serving as governor of our only Arctic state. But while we recognize the effects of changing water levels, erosion patterns, and glacial ice melt, we cannot primarily blame man’s activities for the earth’s cyclical weather changes. The drastic economic measures being pushed by dogmatic environmentalists won’t change the weather, but will dramatically change our economy for the worse.

Policy decisions require real science and real solutions, not junk science and doomsday scare tactics pushed by an environmental priesthood that capitalizes on the public’s worry and makes them feel that owning an SUV is a “sin” against the planet. In his inaugural address, President Obama declared his intention to “restore science to its rightful place.” Boycotting Copenhagen while this scandal is thoroughly investigated would send a strong message that the United States government will not be a party to fraudulent scientific practices. Saying no to Copenhagen and cap and tax are first steps in “restoring science to its rightful place.”
