James Hansen Jumps the Shark

Global warming profiteer James Hansen (who formerly hawked global cooling) has exploited his high-level position in the NASA bureaucracy to establish himself as a second Al Gore. His antics have included calling for a communist China-led boycott of the USA, advocating Stalin-style show trials for those who provide us with energy, repeatedly peddling phony data, soaking up money from anti-American radical George Soros, and giving over 1,400 interviews in the span of a few years while yelping that he was being silenced by the Bush Administration. His former boss denounced him as a fraud. Through all this, he has continued to draw a presumably generous paycheck from NASA as if he were actually doing constructive work on behalf of the American taxpayer. But as the global warming hoax begins to disintegrate, the very shamelessness that brought Hansen wealth and fame has caused him to cross the line into farce.

Once regarded (if only by fools) as a wise sage nobly struggling to save the planet from climatic doom, he has been reduced to getting himself arrested with the guffaw-inducing Daryl Hannah, a clownish actress now best known for having to be extracted by the fire department from someone else’s tree. Not even a liberal could take Hansen seriously after this:

James Hansen was arrested alongside Hannah and several other people at a sit-in to protest the Keystone XL project, a proposed $7-billion, 1,700-mile pipeline that would transport crude oil from Alberta, Canada, to the Texas Gulf Coast. Environmentalists fear the project will destroy pristine forests and pave the way for another devastating oil spill, but proponents say it will create jobs and reduce the nation’s reliance on oil from places such as Venezuela and Saudi Arabia.

Hansen heads NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, which examines such hot-button issues as climate change and humans’ effect on the planet.

Once NASA reached for the stars. Now it employs militant luddites who would have us traveling by bicycle.

Hansen, who has been arrested before for protesting climate change issues, was recently named in a lawsuit seeking documentation about his employment beyond NASA, and whether he violated ethics and financial reporting guidelines by accepting funds from environmental organizations.

A government bloated enough to employ a corrupt and useless toad like Hansen hardly needs any more hikes in its debt ceiling.

A useless, corrupt, luddite toad gets busted.

    A protest? The horror.

  • Tim

    ignoring the facts that the man is a tax payer funded con artists shocking!

    Here’s my question for today;

    Given the pathetic and deplorable condition of our country, our economy, and our society in general, should Americans be trusted with something as powerful and potentially damaging as the vote?

  • SPURWING PLOVER

    Time for this James Hansen wacko to be demoted to janitor

  • Alan

    For my NASA dollars I want to see astronauts on Mars in my lifetime. I suspect it was conservatism that got men to the moon, not moonbattery (no pun intended).

    Moonbattery is only about shuttling people up to a multi-culti space station that looks down on Gaia, looking for ways to prove humanity is ruining the planet. Space stations are so been there done that.

    Not all Americans. And certainly not non-Americans.

    The vote is the one last weapon real Americans interested in America have against the blanket despotism pursued by lackies like BO and envied by the liberal mob.

    A constitutional amendment that specifies that only those individuals who pay federal income tax and therefore have a vested interest in the stewardship of the U. S. Republic would pass, I think, 3/4 of the states in a landslide.

    Some say nay. Some say let hyperinflation destroy the economy so that the people will then have to turn to the GOP adults to start all over again.

    Sort of an Emperor Tiberius Claudius approach to a decaying Rome.

    But those types are just Nagging Nabobs of Negativism.

    Put a bill on the table.

    The lemings will stop at the precipice.

  • Ghost of FA Hayak

    If NASA employees are protesting the very same energy their jobs rely on to put rockets in space, Then why fund NASA ?

  • FrankW

    Somewhere I can picture the Mercury Seven laughing their asses silly at what has become of NASA.

  • Patriot

    Oh yeah! Remember when global cooling was going to bring on a catastrophic new ice age within the next decade (gasp)? And this loon was pushing the global cooling Kool-Aid, back when it was “kool” Lol. Thanks for the flashback!

  • Tim

    the world was supposed to end by 1985 according to these same “scientists” Earth was supposed to be a frozen wasteland by now

  • Spurwing Plover

    He is just as wacky as that CARL SAGAN nut case Blabbering this STAR STUFF poppycock SAGAN took his wacky sea urchin shaped star ship IMAGINATION in the ROMULAN NUETRAL ZONE and they vaporized him and his crew of evolution wackos

  • John Lewis

    Just another goon.

  • SPURWING PLOVER

    I hope he jumps on the GLOBAL WARMING bandwagon and lands ona pitchfork in his butthole

  • Steve D.

    Is anyone really shocked that this a$$hole is employed by a federal agency charged with space exploration who can no longer send a man into space and who’s most important goal is to make muslims feel good about themselves? You can’t make this barack up!

  • rjp

    James Hanson should be arrested, but for treason.

  • Billy Walsh

    Are you all insane? You actually think this tar sands project is a good idea? Do you even research things for yourself or just buy into all the B.S. that is told to you by the media who has been purchased by the very companies who fund projects like the Tar Sands. I don’t wish to get into arguments here, I wish to discuss how you could possibly think the Tar Sands Project is NOT insane? Because I can’t fathom even the remotest potential that it could carry other than further destruction of our planet.
