Nasa astronauts turns on James Hansen and the man-made Global warming agenda

JAMES Hansen, of NASA – he’s Director of the Goddard Institute of Space Studies – reportedly, has been writing to Solvenia’s President – the foreigner taking it upon himself to tell an elected leader how to build greener power plants. Oddly, Hansen sees himself as the little guy up againt the machine. As the Telegraph reports:

Dr James Hansen, director of the Nasa Goddard Institute for Space Studies, who first made warnings about climate change in the 1980s, said that public scepticism about the threat of man-made climate change has increased despite the growing scientific consensus …

He blamed sceptics who are opposed to major social and economic changes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for employing “tremendous resources” to undermine the scientific evidence.

Both arguments have “tremendous resources“. But what of that argument for man-made global warming – is the science settled? No. Hansen’s underfunded Nasa is wondering about the facts:

In an unprecedented slap at NASA’s endorsement of global warming science, nearly 50 former astronauts and scientists –including the ex-boss of the Johnson Space Center – claim the agency is on the wrong side of science and must change course or ruin the reputation of the world’s top space agency.

Challenging statements from NASA that man is causing climate change, the former NASA executives demanded in a letter to Administrator Charles Bolden that he and the agency “refrain from including unproven remarks” supporting global warming in the media.
