Tim Blair and Andrew Bolt are both ahead of me on this one, but it is worth listing anyway.

James Hansen is the NASA scientist who complained loudly and incessantly about being silenced, particularly under the evil chimpybushitler regime. At the same time he got a huge amount of publicity, and some additional income, from equally loudly and incessantly telling the world the sky was falling. Since the sky falling is what sells newspapers and TV advertising spots, Mr Hansen was Mr Popular with the media.

Now NASA atmospheric scientist Dr. John Theon, just retired Chief of Climate Processes Research and Hansen’s former supervisor, has said that Hansen was never silenced or pressured in any way, despite the fact that his claims and high media profile were an embarrassment to NASA, and that he Theon, disagrees completely with the anthropogenic global warming theory.

‘Theon declared “climate models are useless.” “My own belief concerning anthropogenic climate change is that the models do not realistically simulate the climate system…  there is no rational justification for using climate model forecasts to determine public policy.”’
