Claims of human caused global warming began with a deception and the pattern continues.
It appears a new response of climate scientists caught in malfeasance has evolved as the original deception fails. It’s called self-victimization that Wikipedia defines as;
“the fabrication of victimhood for a variety of reasons such to justify abuse of others, to manipulate others, a coping strategy or attention seeking.”
James Hansen, 71 years old and director of the NASA Goddard Institute of Space Studies (GISS), produced a recent example. Going to Scotland for another speech, he played the victimization card now familiar to IPCC affiliated and Climatic Research Unit (CRU) people, like Director Phil Jones who claimed he considered suicide after the emails were leaked. Hansen played the card in October 2011 when he said,
“Climate sceptics are winning the argument with the public over global warming.”
His latest comments are an expansion and suggest political tunnel vision rather than scientific awareness. Here are his comments (H) with my commentary (B).
