James Hansen’s Former NASA Supervisor Declares Himself a Skeptic – Says Hansen ‘Embarrassed NASA’, ‘Was Never Muzzled’, & Models ‘Useless’

“Hansen was never muzzled even though he violated NASA’s official agency position on climate forecasting (i.e., we did not know enough to forecast climate change or mankind’s effect on it). Hansen thus embarrassed NASA by coming out with his claims of global warming in 1988 in his testimony before Congress,” Theon wrote. [Note: NASA scientist James Hansen has created worldwide media frenzy with his dire climate warning, his call for trials against those who dissent against man-made global warming fear, and his claims that he was allegedly muzzled by the Bush administration despite doing 1,400 on-the-job media interviews! ]

Waitaminnit….

…Obama is President now! When I woke up, shouldn’t my driveway already have been cleared?
By a unicorn-drawn snow blade?
Where the hell are all my benefits from my shiny new president?

Paging Al Gore

Please come shovel this 12.4″ of global warming off my driveway.

Snow? Did someone say snow?

Where is Al Gore today, anyway?

…WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM THIS EVENING TO 7 AM EST WEDNESDAY…
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN INDIANAPOLIS HAS ISSUED A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR SNOW…WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM THIS EVENING TO 7 AM EST WEDNESDAY. THE WINTER STORM WATCH IS NO LONGER IN EFFECT.
A PROLONGED PERIOD OF WINTRY WEATHER IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP AS A COUPLE OF WEATHER DISTURBANCES MOVE ACROSS THE AREA. ONE DISTURBANCE WILL BRING SNOW TO THE AREA TONIGHT…AND A SECOND ONE WILL BRING MORE SNOW TUESDAY AFTERNOON INTO EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS OF 2 TO 5 INCHES ARE EXPECTED FROM NORTH TO SOUTH IN THE ADVISORY AREA.

Well, it was enough to get me off my ass and get the snowblower running, at any rate. I had to put some gasoline stablizer in the tank before it would start. Which is odd, because supposedly the 2-cycle oil I put in the flippin’ gas had gasoline stabilizer in it. Guess I won’t trust that again.
At least I didn’t have to resort to starter fluid. Or to saying “fuck it” and trading up to a 4-cycle machine.
