According to the L. A. Times today....
A government scientist, under sharp questioning by a federal panel for his outspoken views on global warming, stood by his view today that the Bush administration's information policies smacked of Nazi Germany.
James Hansen, director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, took particular issue with the administration's rule that a government information officer listen in on his interviews with reporters and its refusal to allow him to be interviewed by National Public Radio."This is the United States," Hansen told the House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee. "We do have freedom of speech here."
Dr. Hansen did have a government official with him at the time of addressing the panel, former chief of staff to the White House counsel on environmental affairs. And, guess what? One of Mr. Cooney's other former posts was as an official of the American Petroleum Institute. Because when you think of the Bush administration, you should think of one thing.....BIG OIL.
And remember big oil.....I mean the Bush administration's official stance on Global Warming is to create doubts. To create doubts in every one's minds that we have caused damage by dumping the atmosphere with pollutants. Tons and tons of pollutants. But many want you to think in doing so, we have caused no damage. If they really believed it, how come they require smog tests on our cars? Let's face it everyone, the Bush administration is good at two things, lying, and using rhetoric (and their friends) to cast doubt on the truth. Oh, I almost forgot, they were really good at making us fear things as well. Fear things based upon their lies.
Kudo's to Dr. Hansen for standing up to the worst friend the Bill of Rights ever had....the Bush administration. But, just where will you be working tomorrow, smart guy?

NASA Say warming is attributed to the Sun (most likely).

Most scientists and professors who are against global warming are fired or censored. not the other way around. Also, Gore had scientists (via Bill Clinton) who disagreed with his environmental outlook. So I guess the Clinton administration "smacked of Nazism."
