Hoax Whore James Hansen Calls for Stalinesque Show Trials

Believe it or not, Al Gore isn't the creepiest moonbat to exploit the global warming hoax. Creepier still is his friend James Hansen, the NASA bureaucrat who during the 70s prostituted science for global cooling. Hansen, who provided propaganda support for Gore's A Convenient Lie, is making a pretty penny from the pernicious hoax. Revealing the Bolshevik red that can always be found beneath the green facade of environmental fanaticism, Hansen is now calling for the arrest of oil company CEOs.

Their crime: providing the energy required for modern civilization to function. The charges are to be something along the lines of "high crimes against humanity and nature." Specifically, they are accused of spreading doubt about the global warming hoax.

Like Lenin, Mao, Castro, and other luminaries of the Left, Hansen regards doubting progressive ideology to be literally criminal. Also like his fellow authoritarian moonbats, he insists on the remaking of society. Not only are critics to be coercively silenced, but there must be a moratorium on coal-fired power plants, so that wind, solar, and pixie dust can be given a chance to keep the economy from collapsing as completely as in Pol Pot's Kampuchea.

Hansen had better keep screaming at the top of his lungs, if he wants to drown out the fact that it hasn't gotten any warmer in the last 11 years. Hopefully he will yell himself hoarse before disseminating such information becomes illegal.

Hoaxers like Hansen hope to master the world.

From the Guardian article on Hansen that is linked from "arrest of oil company CEOs" above:

A group seeking to increase pressure on international leaders is launching a campaign today called It is taking out full-page adverts in papers such as the New York Times and the Swedish Falukuriren calling for the target level of CO2 to be lowered to 350ppm. The advert has been backed by 150 signatories, including Hansen.

Check out this list of what I presume is supposed to be an impressive list of signatories. What a bunch of crap.

Hansen is a mentally unstable buffoon.

Hansen needs to be the first one put on "show trial," for "Idiocy, Fabrication, being a general weenie, a failure as a scientist, being a 'bought-and-paid-for' shill for the EnviroNazi movement -- hey, whoever pays the most, owns my ass! -- generally being a miserable jerk and worthless piece of crap; and being an all-around screw-up of the first water, no longer necessary for the New World Order of Strict Environmentalism."

Should be interesting; maybe they'll televise it, world-wide, following up with his execution by slow torture (Vegetarianism), supervised by His Enormity, King algore, for "Stupidity, Mendacity and Other High Crimes and Misdemeanors." I'll be there, cheering!

Hansen is not a scientist at all. No scientist would condemn others for questioning the received wisdom, but rather would answer with dispositive data. If such data are not to hand, as they are not in this case, scepticism and doubt are entirely rational.

Shouldn't NASA be more concerned with stopping rogue asteroids from careening with the earth or some other more plausible risk to humankind?

We better thank God for the "oil crisis" at the moment. It's the only thing standing between us and these fanatics. If gas were a reasonable price, these guys would have everyone (read: people who don't know any better) scared and ready to agree to any of their insane demands.

They'd set impossible standards for "greenhouse" gases, take away personal transportation, kill capitalism and free short, impose an "ecological" totalitarianism on the U.S. and the rest of the free world.

They are letting us know to what lengths they'd go, also. You won't just get a fine or have your business shut, you'll go on trial for "crimes against humanity". These are dangerous people, true Enviro-Nazis, and I don't use that word lightly. They are not "nuts" or "whackos"...that crowd are the tree-sitters in Berkeley.

No, these are calculating, hate-filled, agenda-driven socialist-communists who are feeling their oats, and think they've finally gotten the key to foist their brand of repressive government on the whole world (note: they always talk "global" "planet" etc.).

Ain't it funny how the only cure for Global Warming is a massive transfer of wealth to environmental activists?

But don't call it a scam.

"Think the thoughts I dictate or go to jail."

The stinking SOB lunatic can definitely kiss my hairy white butt. And I want him to PERSONALLY come to attempt to arrest me.

matt: you noted: "They'd set impossible standards for 'greenhouse' gases, take away personal transportation, kill capitalism and free short, impose an 'ecological' totalitarianism on the U.S. and the rest of the free world."

Couldn't agree with you more. Only problem is, McLame wants to do exactly the same thing (unless he can be persuaded over the next precious few weeks to abandon his moronic notion of being seen as a "Greenie" helping him get elected in November). With McLame, I'm afraid, it's ALL about McLame. Period. So I don't hold out much hope . . .

Hansen could be in violation of the Hatch Act .

James Hansen is to a space scientist what Valerie Plame is to a secret agent. They may have worked for the same agencies as those they claimed to be, but they have little in common with them.

Whatever happened to Paul Ehrlich? I know he has a page dedicated to him on Ought not he and Hansen be rooming together someplace that resembles the G*d-forsaken interior of their souls? Both are equally irrelevant, and only out of chronological sync.
