Skip to comments.MICHAELS: China-style dictatorship of climatologists (James Hansen)
Posted on 01/18/2011 5:41:11 AM PST by Track9
The nation's most prominent publicly funded climatologist is officially angry about this, blaming democracy and citing the Chinese government as the "best hope" to save the world from global warming. He also wants an economic boycott of the U.S. sufficient to bend us to China's will.
NASA laboratory head James Hansen's anti-democracy rants were published while he was on a November junket in China, but they didn't get much attention until recently. On Jan. 12, the hyperprolific blogger Marc Morano put them on his Climate Depot site, and within hours, the post went viral. In a former life, Mr. Morano was chief global-warming researcher for Sen. James M. Inhofe, Oklahoma Republican.
According to Mr. Hansen, compared to China, we are "the barbarians" with a "fossil-money- 'democracy' that now rules the roost," making it impossible to legislate effectively on climate change. Unlike us, the Chinese are enlightened, unfettered by pesky elections. Here's what he blogged on Nov. 24:

"Several years ago I received the Heinz Environment Award. I don't know who nominated me for that award or how the selection works."
"I am confident that it has no impact on my evaluation of the climate problem or on my political leanings."
"In the upcoming election I will vote for John Kerry."

NASA's Hansen Mentioned in [George] Soros Foundation's Annual Report:
"Hansen is best known for his research in the field of climatology, his testimony on climate change to congressional committees in 1988 that helped raise broad awareness of global warming, and his advocacy of action to limit the impacts of climate change."
Hansen has gone completely bonkers - he needs to be confined to a rubber room.
Amazingly ignorant, Mr. Hansen. Tariffs are an immediate backfire. The US is a CONSUMER nation, not a producer nation.
Science under the Marxist O regime is a weapon in the hands of sworn enemies of our nation, to wit, the Communist cabal.
These are the darkest days since the Civil War. WWII was a time of hope, of courage and sacrifice. Now we are living through an era of fear, cowardice, and ignorance. God save us from ourselves.
This guy’s comments were traitorous.......
And he wants a New World Order global government, too, ruled under communist lines!!!!
That's pretty much what all the lefty democrats want, particularly the obamanation administration.
VENEZUELA: Chavez calls for global offensive for socialism
August 31, 2005
"The environment is suffering damage that could be irreversible global warming, the greenhouse effect, the melting of the polar ice caps, the rising sea level, hurricanes with terrible social occurrences that will shake life on this planet."
"I believe this idea has a strong connection with reality. I don't think we have much time. Fidel Castro said in one of his speeches I read not so long ago, 'tomorrow could be too late, let's do now what we need to do'."
"I believe it is time that we take up with courage and clarity a political, social, collective and ideological offensive across the world a real offensive that permits us to move progressively, over the next years, the next decades, leaving behind the perverse, destructive, destroyer, capitalist model and go forward in constructing the socialist model to avoid barbarism and beyond that the annihilation of life on this planet."
--Hugo Chavez, at the 16th World Festival of Youth and Students, held in Caracas on August 8-15, 2005
Obama and his 'climate team' are on the same page with Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez:
From The Washington Times, January 12, 2009
Obama climate czar has socialist ties
Group sees 'global governance' as solution
by Stephen Dinan
Until last week, Carol M. Browner, President-elect Barack Obama's pick as global warming czar, was listed as one of 14 leaders of a socialist group's Commission for a Sustainable World Society, which calls for "global governance" and says rich countries must shrink their economies to address climate change.
By Thursday, Mrs. Browner's name and biography had been removed from Socialist International's Web page, though a photo of her speaking June 30 to the group's congress in Greece was still available.
Someone needs to point out to Mr. Hansen that China brings on-line another coal-fired generating plant about every two weeks.
And, no, Chinese scientists have not developed a method to burn coal that yields any carbon compound other than carbon dioxide.
Old Science: “We’re smarter than you. Trust us.”
New Science: “We’re smarter than you. Shut up!”
Interesting about the Heinz Award. Thanks for the connection.
Yep, there are many parallels to that period. Economic regional protectionism dictated by Washington DC. The thoroughly corrupt central government after the CW has much in common with Obozo's administration, except this time he is targeting the entire nation, not just a defeated region. He is bent on destruction of the Republic. He must be removed from office and his menions identified, tried and punished for the crimes against the nation.
The Khmer Rouge were even greener.
not even original.

Whether our consumerism was intentional or not, the fact that we got a great deal of imports from outside of the United States in proportion than previously was the case could very well have been helpful and supportive to numerous foreign economies following the war. There’s few places on Earth that don’t earn some sort of income because someone from the U.S. is willing to have their product shipped over and sold into the United States. As bad as some of what we are doing may be, and forget the tall-tale of pure intent, the fact that the U.S. consumes drives other nations to produce, which in time reduces their poverty. Corporations are certainly not infallible, but honestly most of the world would not be as well off had America and other developed nations not been willing to buy their products and send money to their coffers.
My argument went to Dr. Hansen's ridiculous notion that foreign tariffs on US goods would get us in line with global environmentalism.
Suffice it to say such a ploy would result in tariffs on goods imported into the US causing, as you make clear, substantial discomfort for exporting nations such as China, India, et al.
