As the global warming hoax unravels, the masks are coming off its major profiteers. Disgraced propagandist James Hansen of NASA unsurprisingly reveals himself to be a treasonous authoritarian with delusions that may qualify as psychotic. In his alternate universe, the communist Chinese are the good guys; only they can save the planet from America by leading a worldwide boycott against us. He spewed this in the South China Morning Post:
“After agreement with other nations, e.g., the European Union, China and these nations could impose rising internal carbon fees. Existing rules of the World Trade Organization would allow collection of a rising border duty on products from all nations that do not have an equivalent internal carbon fee or tax.
“The United States then would be forced to make a choice. It could either address its fossil-fuel addiction … or … accept continual descent into second-rate and third-rate economic well-being.”
That is, the WTO (largely funded by the USA) is going to destroy the largest economy on the planet so that the ecofriendly ChiComs can save the polar bears from the cold weather caused by global warming. So far gone is Hansen into his envirofascist fantasy world, he hasn’t noticed that most everything in this country is manufactured in China, largely because they impose virtually no environmental restrictions.
Hansen has lost himself in lurid daydreams before:
In 1988, he reportedly told Bob Reiss, author of yet another apocalyptic screed, “The Coming Storm,” that in the next 20 years, “The West Side Highway [in Manhattan] will be under water” and, “There will be more police cars” in New York because “well, you know what happens to crime when the heat goes up.”
Well, there are more cops and less crime, and the West Side is high and dry. One out of three isn’t bad for baseball, but it is horrendous for science.
But then, Hansen’s politically and financially motivated ravings never did have much to do with science.
