Strange words from a scientist. Especially one who’s into future prediction (by the by, his 1988 model was touted as accurate by many AGW proponents– although the data from 2000-2008 works in the opposite direction of his dire predictions of AGW temperatures).
Here’s what Hansen said:
When you are in that kind of position, as the CEO of one the primary players who have been putting out misinformation even via organisations that affect what gets into school textbooks, then I think that’s a crime.
Dangerous words, especially as Hansen’s models were among those that sparked the AGW movement and concerns of a catastrophic climate change, a change that never happened (so James, if you predicted a change, and the change never happened, and it seems Global Warming is on hiatus, does that mean what you’re pushing into textbooks is misinformation? Turn yourself in, criminal!)
Hansen wants BIG OIL executives to go to jail for publishing “misinformation”. Of course, this leads to arrests of scientists who worked for BIG OIL. Effectively, Hansen wants the AGW Brownshirts to show up and start dragging away the dissenters. Nothing like the state policing science, eh?
