One of the more influential warmists out there, James Hansen of NASA, has more or less announced his attention to call for the criminal sanction of various energy company execs for opposing tenets of AGW dogma. Its rather common for Hansen and his supporters to accuse 'deniers' of being in the pockets of Big Oil. Paul @ C-Junk turns the tables:
In 2001, the Heinz Foundation "awarded" James Hansen with a payment of $250,000 for his work on global warming...
...In 2007, Hansen split a $1 million prize from the Dan David prize category of "Future Quest for Energy"...
...Hansen was packaged for the media by Soros' flagship ‘philanthropy' by as much as $720,000, most likely under the OSI's ‘politicization of science' program."
Hansen could perhaps be forgiven for being just an extremely well-funded professional activist, except for the fact that he is the Director of NASA's GISS (Goddard Institute of Space Studies). A government employee, with all the resources of NASA at his beck and call, abusing his position to make hundreds of thousands of dollars engaging in alarmism and political activism.
