Why can’t this guy choke on his own vomit? All the rest of us are.
“Hansen is channeling Jimmy Carter.”
I think it’s more Rachel Carlson.
Exactly! When these people live a completely “carbon free” life themselves, I might listen to them. Until then, they are just hypocrites.
Hansen is not without his own Nemesis.
Steve McIntyre of Climate Audit hauls Hansen up by his short hairs rather regularly. It was McIntyre who forced Hansen to back off his pronouncement that 1998 was the warmest year on record, and putting that title back where it belongs, to 1934.
Coal is the only significant source of power generation native to the UK. We still have a bucketload of the stuff underground and the only reason we don’t still mine the stuff on any real scale any more is because Thatcher, to her eternal shame, completely shafted the industry back in the 1980s instead of supporting it. Which is why we are now mostly dependent on foreign sources of energy when before we were net energy exporters in a big way....
ANY CHANCE WE COULD SEND HIM TO THE CLOSEST FAR-AWAY SPOT IN SPACE?
Few make it to retirement age. Most find a “medical” reason to quit, (bad knees, bad back, stroke, We have allowed several very incompetent persons to use “medical” as an excuse to get them out of the company, One died from appendicitis, heart attacks, alcoholism. Only ONE got a disease (Mesothelioma, Asbestos). One from Louisiana, cancer capitol of the world, died of cancer. He smoked like a chimney.
The cooling lake is loaded with fish, Bald eagles are all over the place in winter, and I have seen more deer here than anywhere I have ever lived. There were were few deer thirty years ago.
The worst thing about that coal fired plant is that we had a couple of JERKS promoted to supervisors .
Hansen is full of it.
But Algore says the greatest threat is the internal combustion engine! Dissention in the lunatic fringe.
Why is this man pontificating on the taxpayer’s dime?
Easier said than done.
Good question. During the Bush years, supporters cried "muzzling" if he did not express his views as frequently as he wanted. No with Obama supporting his views to the max, I suspect he's the poster child, and the red carpet and feast on the table are laid before him.
Is there ANYTHING in nature that is irreverseable?
This is just fear-mongering plan and simple, just like the stimulus bill. Same playbook, it’s time we fight back.
He’s wrong, Its Ice.
