James Hansen, Still Spreading The Crazy

Environmentalist-Psycho and NASA Scientist (non-rocket science division) James Hansen is back in the news again, this time claiming that oil company executives should be put on trial for “high crimes against humanity and nature” for what he describes as actively spreading doubt about Global Warming™, despite the fact that they know that it’s really happening. Supposedly.
This is the same James Hansen who claimed that he was being censored and blocked from giving interviews about Global Warming™, even though he had given over 1400 interviews on the subject. He’s also the same James Hansen who had a Y2K bug in his temperature data that caused his climate model (which provides the output that drives many of NASA’s climate proclamations) to erroneously place several recent years as the hottest on record. It was also later discovered, after he was compelled to release the algorithm he used for his model, that it was designed to subtly influence the output to make it appear that temperatures were rising, when in fact they were declining slightly.
What the hell is going on with NASA? They used to be dedicated to the exploration of space. Now it seems like they’re just another government agency dedicated to keeping the looniest five percent of the population off the streets by employing them at the taxpayer’s expense. Why do I have to keep reading this man’s proclamations? He’s already been exposed as a fraud and a liar. What’s does one have to do to get fired from NASA? Attack an astronaut? Deny the holocaust? Drive from state to state in a beat up old VW bug picking up female hitchhikers and killing them Ted Bundy style? Apparently falsifying scientific data while working for a government science organization doesn’t count. Let’s see if using the power of a governmental position to silence the free speech rights of those who disagree with him will rise to the level.
I somehow doubt it.
