NASA’s Hansen on Obama enemies list?

“We’re going to punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends,” President Obama famously told Hispanics in a Univision interview before last year’s midterm election. And as Dr. James Hansen has just learned, your status as Obama’s ‘friend’ or ‘enemy’ can flip fast”, writes Conn Carroll.

Carroll reports in the Washington Examiner:

Hansen, chief of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, has been a darling of the progressive movement since he first testified on global warming before the Senate in 1988.

Since that time, Hansen has been a relentless activist for draconian regulations on fossil fuels. This past Sunday, for the second time this year, Hansen was arrested outside the White House protesting against the Keystone XL pipeline.

But while that activism was accepted while a Republican was in the White House, such behavior simply cannot be tolerated while Obama is in the White House.

So on Friday the Obama administration stopped fighting a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and released documents showing that Hansen was paid $250 an hour by a Canadian law firm for testimony against developing Alberta’s oil sands; income which Hansen does not appear to have disclosed. [Emphasis added]

Oops.

Read Carroll’s “FOIA reveals NASA’s Hansen was a paid witness”.

  1. Obama might be a politician, with all the negatives that that implies, but I’ve seen nothing to imply complicity in criminal actions. Now, EPA officials have committed perjury, and investigation might go all the way to the top, but he seems to at the very least have plausible deniability.

    Careful, my friend. You are veering very close to Larouche PAC levels of utility (ie: easily ignorable, and your comments actively undermine the credibility of this site to outsiders).
