Climate scientist sees cover-up

This being reported by The Washington Times today...

Wow! James Hansen a director at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies is claiming he was muzzled by the Bush administration about speaking out on Global Warming.

He is one of the scientists behind Al Gore and his alarmist approach to the problem. Mr. Hansen claims the Bush adminstration block his interview on NPR because it is a liberal slanted outlet. Mr. Hansen claims it was an oral threat made to a public affairs person and then relayed to him.

Let's take a look at some interesting facts about Mr. Hansen.

Ironically he had a tough time reconciling the fact that during this time period he had participated in over 1400 other interviews with the press although he claims he was controlled by the Bush administration.

He was paid $250,000 in form of a grant from the Heinz foundation (controlled by Teresa Heinz AKA John Kerry's wife).

He is also a senior advisor to Al Gore and was a consultant (paid I am sure) to Al Gore's outrageous Global Warming docudrama "An Inconvenient Truth".

The fact behind his interview being blocked has nothing to do with politics but because of Mr. Hansen's repeated violations of NASA's policies regarding interviews. Mr. Hansen did not deny violating the policy. So he is paid by NASA and when hired and by accepting a paycheck agrees to NASA's policies. He violates the policy and get himself blocked from the interview but he somehow wants to blame the Bush administration.

It seems the only inconvenient truth here is the fact that James Hansen looks to be bought and paid for by liberal wing of the democrats which are jumping on the Al Gore view of science and Global Warming. It looks more like a democratic cover-up not a Bush cover-up.

But then again this kind of logic is consistent with the logic applied to the science surrounding human made Global Warming.

Oh and by the way Mr. Hansen also stated that the White House is making strides in the environmental agenda and claims "It is a success story" and Bush should be given credit for it.

Go figure?
