[HT: Watts Up With That]
Washington DC: NASA warming scientist James Hansen, one of former Vice President Al Gore’s closest allies in the promotion of man-made global warming fears, is being publicly rebuked by his former supervisor at NASA.
Retired senior NASA atmospheric scientist Dr. John S. Theon, the former supervisor of James Hansen, NASA’s vocal man-made global warming fears soothsayer, has now publicly declared himself a skeptic and declared that Hansen “embarrassed NASA” with his alarming climate claims and said Hansen was “was never muzzled.” Theon joins the rapidly growing ranks of international scientists abandoning the promotion of anthropogenic global warming fears.
This is good. That loose cannon Hanson goes around saying whatever it takes to convince the proles that Anthropogenic Climate Change is real, even as the allegedly rock solid consensus crumbles beneath his feet. Unfortunately, the fact that he works for NASA gives him some credibility that he does not deserve.
Hopefully this will tarnish his credentials somewhat.
