    NASA Scientist Accused of Using Celeb Status Among Environmental Groups to Enrich Him

    The NASA scientist who once claimed the Bush administration tried to "silence" his global warming claims is now accused of receiving more than $1.2 million from the very environmental organizations whose agenda he advocated.
    In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Washington, D.C., a group claims NASA is withholding documents that show James Hansen failed to comply with ethics rules and financial disclosures regarding substantial compensation he earned outside his $180,000 taxpayer-paid position as director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
    "Hansen's office appears to be somewhat of a rogue operation. It's clearly a taxpayer-funded global warming advocacy organization," said Chris Horner, a co-founder of The American Tradition Institute, which filed the lawsuit. "The real issue here is, has Hansen been asking NASA in writing, in advance, for permission for these outside activities? We have reason to believe that has not been occurring."
    The lawsuit claims Hansen privately profited from his public job in violation of federal ethics rules, and NASA allowed him to do it because of his influence in the media and celebrity status among environmental groups, which rewarded him handsomely the last four years.
    Gifts, speaking fees, prizes and consulting compensation include:
    -- A shared $1 million prize from the Dan David Foundation for his "profound contribution to humanity." Hansen's cut ranged from $333,000 to $500,000, Horner said, adding that the precise amount is not known because Hansen's publicly available financial disclosure form only shows the prize was "an amount in excess of $5,000."
    Well well well, what have we here? That's right, the father of global warming caught breaking the law. Let the apologies begin.

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Read the thread title and just knew it was going to be Hansen. Always getting himself into trouble, that one.

    Disproves it as a whole? No....Man's involvement in causing it? Well, serious questions should arise about the so called Science of this religion.

    Do you have serious questions about the skeptics side of things? For example, Lord Monckton has testified before Congress with information that is provably false. He distorts and sometimes outright reverses the claims made in papers he is supposedly citing.

    So that's the defense? The other side does it too?

    No, I'm just wondering if you apply the same standards to your side of the argument. I've not defended Hansen's actions at all.
