BREAKING: James Hansen to leave NASA to be full time activist
Watts Up With That? ^ | April 1, 2013 | o by Anthony Watts

james hansen arrested

I checked first, thinking this was some April Fools joke, it appears legit. (h/t to Tom Nelson and Skiphil)

Climate Alarmist Jim Hansen leaving NASA on Wed. to devote himself to legal and political activism:

Hansen retiring from NASA to press legal and activist efforts

At the same time, retirement will allow Dr. Hansen to press his cause in court. He plans to take a more active role in lawsuits challenging the federal and state governments over their failure to limit emissions, for instance, as well as in fighting the development in Canada of a particularly dirty form of oil extracted from tar sands.

“As a government employee, you can’t testify against the government,” he said in an interview.

In the interview and in subsequent e-mails, Dr. Hansen made it clear that his new independence would allow him to take steps he could not have taken as a government employee. He plans to lobby European leaders — who are among the most concerned about climate change — to impose a tax on oil derived from tar sands. Its extraction results in greater greenhouse emissions than conventional oil.

Dr. Hansen says he senses the beginnings of a mass movement on climate change, led by young people. Once he finishes his final papers as a NASA employee, he intends to give it his full support.

“At my age,” he said, “I am not worried about having an arrest record.”

Perhaps this is the only way we will find him ultimately hauled off to prison after some wild greenie sponsored march.

He fits the activist mold...doesn’t know squat.

And we wonder why NASA has been such a failure since the moon project.

It is to NASA’s shame that Hansen wasn’t fired in disgrace a long time ago. Now he’s going to ramp up his propaganda and continue to ride on the coat tails of NASA’s reputation.

He wants to get on the gravy train full time before the global warming scam comes to an end.

Shame that they don’t do a clawback on his salary for the last 20 years now that he has admitted that he was just a punk activist and not a real scientist.
