Scientist James Hansen Getting Bitter   December 3rd, 2009
Looks like ClimateGate is taking a toll       


More observations...

Another global warming scientist, James Hansen of NASA, seems to be getting downright grouchy and bitter--perhaps as a result of ClimateGate...

In an interview with the Guardian, James Hansen, the world's pre-eminent climate scientist, said any agreement likely to emerge from the negotiations would be so deeply flawed that it would be better to start again from scratch.

No argument there! But it's interesting that the "godfather" of global warming is supposedly hoping that Copenhagen fails.

In Hansen's view, dealing with climate change allows no room for the compromises that rule the world of elected politics. "This is analagous to the issue of slavery faced by Abraham Lincoln or the issue of Nazism faced by Winston Churchill," he said. "On those kind of issues you cannot compromise. You can't say let's reduce slavery, let's find a compromise and reduce it 50% or reduce it 40%."

This is just scary. In other words, this guy wants draconian reductions without compromise, everything else be damned. It's clear that certain scientists are seeing the very clear possibility of their political influence diminishing and are trying to mount a counter-offensive. Just as the whole premise of global warming becomes more and more questionable, Hansen is out there saying that there's no room for compromise.

He added: "We don't have a leader who is able to grasp it and say what is really needed. Instead we are trying to continue business as usual.

What an arrogant, condescending, and insulting statement. Only he, and other CRU-style "scientists," are apparently capable of grasping what needs to be done.

The problem isn't that people don't grasp what's going on. The problem for these scientists is that we do understand.
