|Dr. Hansen, with much to smile about|
Climate alarmist James Hansen compares the AGW issue to slavery:
Averting the worst consequences of human-induced climate change is a "great moral issue" on a par with slavery, according to the leading Nasa climate scientist Prof Jim Hansen.
He argues that storing up expensive and destructive consequences for society in future is an "injustice of one generation to others".
Hansen, who will next Tuesday be awarded the prestigious Edinburgh Medal for his contribution to science, will also in his acceptance speech call for a worldwide tax on all carbon emissions.Hansen, a NASA big-wig and winner of countless awards for his courage and scientific acumen, has been soaking up the cash (1.6 million in fees and awards as of November 2011) and not reporting it as he is required to do so by law.
He has been harshly critical of the motives of unpaid skeptics who ask questions about global warming science.
Hansen's scientific skills fall somewhat short of his award-winning skills. In 1986 he predicted:
The AGW controversy is about slavery. It is about whether humanity will be subject to a "worldwide tax" on the gas we exhale, and whether we will be subject to the rule of junk-scientists and politicians and green investors who assure us that granting them trillions of dollars and unprecedented power over every aspect of our lives is the only way to save the planet.
“Within 15 years,” said Goddard Space Flight Honcho James Hansen, “global temperatures will rise to a level which hasn’t existed on earth for 100,000 years”.
The proper response of free people to this unprecedented attempt at enslavement is quite venerable.
