Shocking, I know...

Climate Expert Says NASA Tried to Silence Him.

Quote du jour:

Dean Acosta, deputy assistant administrator for public affairs at the space agency, said there was no effort to silence Dr. Hansen. "That's not the way we operate here at NASA," he said. "We promote openness and we speak with the facts."


Excuse me, I have to pause to wipe my eyes and catch my breath. NASA is sweating bullets over its funding after a not-so-sterling track record (We've FIXED THE SHUTTLE! Everything's FINE NOW!!! Whoops, maybe not...) and if the Administration decreed that NASA officials had to make all public appearances in fuzzy pink bunny suits they'd do it. The Climate Guy is no little flake looking for publicity. He's a scientist sick of the crap. Go, Dr. Hansen!
