James Hansen has been exposed as a two-bit fraud along with Al Gore for perpetrating one of the greatest hoaxes ever, yet I don't see anyone urging they be put on trial. Mercilessly ridiculed, yes; but charged with crimes?
Perhaps they should be sued for fraud, but put on trial?
James Hansen, one of the world's leading climate scientists, will today call for the chief executives of large fossil fuel companies to be put on trial for high crimes against humanity and nature, accusing them of actively spreading doubt about global warming in the same way that tobacco companies blurred the links between smoking and cancer.Well, sorry, Mr. Hansen, just because you think it's crime, doesn't make it so.
Hansen will use the symbolically charged 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking speech to the US Congress - in which he was among the first to sound the alarm over the reality of global warming - to argue that radical steps need to be taken immediately if the "perfect storm" of irreversible climate change is not to become inevitable.
Speaking before Congress again, he will accuse the chief executive officers of companies such as ExxonMobil and Peabody Energy of being fully aware of the disinformation about climate change they are spreading.
In an interview with the Guardian he 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."
The astonishing arrogance of these global warming freaks never ceases to amaze. It's when these true believers disregard any science disputing them and become drunk with power they become very dangerous.
It's clear Gore, Hanson and their ilk have no use for free speech. They could use a refresher.
Naturally, the media is lapping up his nonsense.
