    The plot thickens: White House aides Monday were mum about what would happen to the Office of Energy and Climate Change except to declare that Browner, a former Senate staffer to Al Gore, believed energy issues would remain front and center for the president. Read more: One wonders now if Obama will even mention climate during the State of the Union Address Tuesday night. With jobs and economy taking front and center and Browner’s announcement right before SOTUA, government climate initiatives may be relegated to the back-burner.

    James Hansen, the controversial scientist at the centre of the global warming movement has turned on America’s Democrat party in a shock announcement, savaging past Democrat administrations for “huge mistakes” that denied America the possibility of producing zero carbon emissions energy by now. Andy Revkin of the New York Times reported that Hansen was not happy with the current Obama administration, as despite offering his services “I never heard back anything from the White House”. This “lame” approach, he said could be seen in past Democrat administrations: Nowhere is the lame middle-of-the-road go-slow compromise approach clearer than in the case...

    You gotta hand it to the guy, despite almost every single one of his prognostications turning out to be wrong, he doesn’t bat an eyelid but just right on going. And they keep letting him.The latest escapade from Beijing Jim involves  a paper he’s writing which says it’s “almost dead certain” that the sea will rise by a multiple number of metres this century. As Treehugger reports:“[Business as usual] scenarios result in global warming on the order of 3-6°C. It is this scenario for which we assert that multi-meter sea level rise on the century time scale are not only possible, but...

    Patrick J. MICHAELS: China-style dictatorship of climatologistsNASA’s Hansen prefers rule by decree to fight ‘global warming’Excerpts: From the Washington Times Monday, January 17, 2011November’s election made it quite clear that the people of the United States do not want to radically change our society in the name of global warming. Pretty much every close House race went to the Republicans, while the Democrats won all the Senate squeakers. The difference? The House on June 26, 2009, passed a bill limiting carbon-dioxide emissions and getting into just about every aspect of our lives. The Senate did nothing of the sort. The...

    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...

    The NASA scientist at the heart of the global warming fiasco seems set to stir more controversy after declaring in an op ed piece for The South China Morning Post and a personally published follow-up that American democracy is not competent to deal with global warming, and communist China now represents the world’s “best hope”. In the op ed piece for the Chinese newspaper, which he entitled Chinese Leadership Needed to Save Humanity (published as The Price of Change) Hansen placed the blame for the vast majority of Co2 emissions supposedly causing global warming on his home country of America,...

    Much of the data cited to support warmist claims is pure conjecture, says Christopher Booker Dr James Hansen, of Nasa's Goddard Institute for Space Studies Photo: PA We have lately heard much of the claim that 2010 will turn out to have been “the hottest year on record”. No one has done more to promote this belief than Dr James Hansen, head of Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), responsible for one of the four main official global temperature records. As reported by the US blogs Real Science and Watts Up With That, in a post headed “GISS temperatures...

    Godfather of the global warming hoax, James Hansen has received a $100,000 "environmental prize for decades of work trying to alert politicians to what he called an unsolved emergency of global warming." Climate scientist James Hansen wins Sophie Prize : The "Sophie Prize" is awarded for disrupting free-market capitalism and pushing the world toward centralized control. In its mission statement, the organization behind the prize states: Today’s economic system is at odds with the limits set by nature. Too many decisions are based on short-term profit for a few select groups rather than a moral and fair distribution of...

    Guardian (UK) ^ | Sunday 29 November 2009 | James Hansen NASA
    Nasa's James Hansen was the first to point out the perils of climate change to the US Congress. Here, he begins a heated debate with experts from around the world, from China to the threatened Maldives, and argues that our leaders must be shaken out of their complacency. But will they show enough courage at next week's Copenhagen summit to take the first steps to saving the planet? Absolutely. It is possible – if we give politicians a cold, hard slap in the face. The fraudulence of the Copenhagen approach – "goals" for emission reductions, "offsets" that render ironclad goals...

    Global Warming Alarmists have more reason to be alarmed thanks to Chris Horner's ongoing investigation of the climate science community. The more Chris digs, the uglier the science gets. PJTV's Danika Quinn talks to the "Red Hot Lies" author about the latest troubling revelation. The data NASA scientists use to calculate global warming, it turns out, is totally tainted. Why does the mainstream media continue to treat the institution as credible? Horner has some thoughts. Watch here:

    Email messages obtained by the Competitive Enterprise Institute via a Freedom of Information Act request reveal that the climate dataset of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) was considered — by the top climate scientists within NASA itself — to be inferior to the data maintained by the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit (CRU). The NASA scientists also felt that NASA GISS data was inferior to the National Climate Data Center Global Historical Climate Network (NCDC GHCN) database. These emails, obtained by Christopher Horner, also show that the NASA GISS dataset was not independent of CRU data....

    Two families have left Middle Coon Valley Lutheran Church in rural Chaseburg after the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s national assembly vote last August to allow gay clergy. “It’s been a hard year, and I say that coming from a congregation that hasn’t had an intense split,” said Middle Coon Valley Pastor Daniel Wollman. Pastors across the La Crosse Area Synod see anger and separation in their churches and have the difficult task of explaining to their congregations that they can be together despite their different opinions, he said. Wollman looked for answers about how to deal with that anger...

    …Civilization is the problem. Hansen recommends a book that incites violent sabotage, and promotes illegal activities to bring about an end to industrial civilization. Is this kind of book legal in the US?James Hansen has called for industrial sabotage and defended lawbreakers before, but did he really read all of Keith Farnish’s words before he endorsed the book “Times Up”? Farnish has put together a frightening compilation. He tried non-violent protest with Greenpeace for five years, but then he changed tactics. He got angry, and recommends you do too: “Constructive Anger, on the other hand, does achieve something useful –...

    Watts Up With That blog ^ | Tuesday, february 9, 2010 | Anthony Watts
    While perusing some of the review comments to the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report, I came across the contributions of Andrew Lacis, a colleague of James Hansen’s at GISS. Lacis’s is not a name I’ve come across before but some of what he has to say about Chapter 9 of the IPCC’s report is simply breathtaking. Chapter 9 is possibly the most important one in the whole IPCC report – it’s the one where they decide that global warming is manmade. This is the one where the headlines are made. Remember, this guy is mainstream, not a sceptic, and you may...

    During my enlistment in the Air Force, I was a meteorologist and while stationed here in Alaska, I spent my time as a meteorologist at Elemdorf A.F.B. And when Mt Pinatubo and Mt Redoubt erupted in the early 1990‘s, I personally briefed NASA pilots and provided upper air soundings (Skew-Ts) so they could conduct their missions of collecting ash samples and gas samples. And it is well known that volcanic eruptions and the gases that are present in the eruptions will increase the chlorine concentration in the stratosphere and break down the ozone layer over the arctic.

    On January 22, 2010 you published a statement: “2009: Second warmest year on record” . As we all know, the global average surface temperature is a sum of two quantities. One is the so-called effective temperature, determined by the available incoming energy (depending on the solar constant, planetary albedo (reflectivity) and internal heat sources as ocean-atmosphere heat exchange, industrial heat generation and so on), now about 255 Kelvin or minus 18 Celsius. The other is the greenhouse temperature, coming from the presence of infrared-active gases (H2O, CO2, methane, ozone, etc.) and clouds in the atmosphere, generally accepted as about 33...
