Some of you may have read about the Greenpeace coal power plant fiasco in Kingsnorth. Some of you may not know how big of a crush Greenpeace has on Jim Hansen. When looking through their trial updates on the Greenpeace site, I noticed something. They didn’t mention Hansen’s name without referring to him as “the world’s leading climate scientist.”
Here they are, in their full and wonderful entirety.

I don’t know about you, but I’m just getting this …… feeling that Greenpeace thinks Jim Hansen is the world’s leading climate scientist.
How do you get to be the so called “world’s leading climate scientist?” Is it by lying about the temperature data that you control? If so, he’s got that covered.
Maybe it’s by absolutely ignoring and breaking the Hatch Act. Cause he loves making political suggestions to people.
Or maybe to be the world’s leading climate scientist you have to recieve grant money from political groups and then claim to be silenced by the Bush administration, when in reality he gave “over 1,400 interviews in recent years, including 15 the very month he made the claim.” Check off those two.

If not those, it’s gotta be calling for oil executives to be put on trial for spreading misinformation about global warming, all while the Earth was actually colder than it was 20 years ago when he told the Senate the sky was falling.
Ahhh, I see now. He has successfully completed all of those, which makes him the World’s Greatest Climate Scientist.
Holding this esteemed position, he is above all scrutiny and criticism, becuase he is the best. The WGCN has no time for “debate” or “skepticism.” Those are not important, says he.
Instead, the WGCN says more meaningful stuff, like “a recipe for global disaster” and “there’s just barely still time.” You know, really level headed and non alarmist kinda stuff. That is some real good science, but hey, did you expect anything less? It’s the World’s Greatest Climate Scientist.
