• “NASA scientist who is one of the world’s leading promoters of the theory that human industrial activity causes global warming
• States that “if we do not rapidly slow fossil-fuel emissions over the next few decades … one ecological collapse will lead to another”
• Calls for taxes to be placed on carbon emissions
• Characterizes coal-fired power plants as “factories of death”
“In a June 23, 1988 speech that was a seminal event in the movement to focus public attention on global warming, Dr. James Hansen of NASA addressed the U.S. Congress and warned that unless the burning of fossil fuels were to be curtailed quickly and dramatically, the natural world suffer irreparable harm.””
“In 2001 he received the Seventh Annual Heinz Award in the Environment for his research on global warming.”
“Soon after receiving a $250,000 award from Teresa Heinz Kerry’s Heinz Family Foundation (a major funder of left-wing environmental causes), Hansen, in a move considered highly unusual for a NASA scientist, endorsed the campaign of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry in 2004. He thereafter served as the primary climate advisor for Al Gore’s 2006 documentary film, An Inconvenient Truth.”
“Warning further that “our planet is in peril,” Hansen asserts that “if we do not rapidly slow fossil-fuel emissions over the next few decades,” “[O]ne ecological collapse will lead to another.” In particular, he predicts the mass “extermination of species” and the ultimate disappearance of all the earth’s ice, resulting in a “sea level 75 meters higher.”
“On the twentieth anniversary of his 1988 speech to Congress, Hansen returned to Capitol Hill to demand that the chief executives of large fossil-fuel companies be put on trial for “high crimes against humanity and nature.”
“In 2011 it was reported that Hansen, in violation of ethics laws that regulate government contracts, had failed to publicly disclose $1.6 million he had earned in outside income, apart from his GISS salary. This included money to cover the costs associated with Hansen’s own transportation to speaking engagements and awards ceremonies around the world; legal services that were provided to him free-of-charge; and gifts from various supporters. In 2006, for instance, the World Wildlife Fund gave Hansen an engraved Montres Rolex watch worth at least $8,000, which Hansen illegally failed to report as a “gift” on his SF 278 financial-disclosure form.”
“After the 2009 eruption of the so-called “Climategate” scandal – “Chris Horner, author of Red Hot Lies: How Global Warming Alarmists Use Threats, Fraud, and Deception to Keep You Misinformed, asserts that Hansen himself doctored temperature data on two occasions—in 2001 and 2007—in attempts to show an impending climate catastrophe.”

At the 2015 Paris climate meeting, President Obama and John Kerry pledged billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to Korean NGO Green Climate Fund and a World Bank operation which will loan that money with strings attached to developing nations (some of whom have already blown the corruption whistle) under the auspices of “climate change.” No treaty was ratified by the U.S. Senate. Congress did not approve the agreement or the taxpayer money (i.e. more debt) committed and down payment sent by Obama pursuant to this agreement. Kerry said in Paris, “If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions – remember what I just said, all the industrial emissions went down to zero emissions – it wouldn’t be enough, not when more than 65 percent of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the developing world.”
Others confirm these model calculations: “Using the same climate sensitivity modeling as the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, … if you included 100 percent [emission] cuts from the entire industrialized world in their modeling, then you would only avert warming by 0.278 degree C by the turn of the century.”
Securities markets were created to trade derivative securities based on carbon emissions. The trading fees on carbon derivatives have been estimated at over $10 trillion dollars per year…or about 75% of the annual GDP of the entire USA … a huge and extremely profitable commodity derivatives market that would be institutionalized by law, government policy, and international treaties…i.e. a government guaranteed market, funded by energy consumers and producers and taxpayers. In summary, they want to regulate and tax emissions of a harmless, helpful gas which is a byproduct of energy production and enrich themselves hugely in the process.
And all of this is about a colorless, odorless commodity, CO2, carbon dioxide, which, if we emit more of it, would make the world a greener and healthier place to live.
A vote for Hillary is a vote to continue this fraud.
