Yep – the very same James Hansen who now heads NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, and has become the High Priest in Prelate Al Gore's Church of Global Warming.
According to the Washington Post story, the scientists making the frigid prediction were asked about the coutervailing influence of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere during combustion. The result? "They found no need to worry about the carbon dioxide fuel-burning puts in the atmosphere."
The existence of this rather incriminating news story was reported in the Washington Times and picked up by LiveLeak.com. You can read the whole thing here: Global Warming Guru Bitten By His Own Words.
According to the article,
Hansen has some explaining to do. The public deserves to know how he was converted from an apparent believer in a coming ice age who had no worries about greenhouse gas emissions to a global warming fear monger.
Yes, I'd say he does, indeed. Was he lying then, is he lying now, or both?
