This is very interesting information. How do we know who to believe. Follow the money......
You made a statement about Dr. James Hansen receiving $250,000 in some form from a foundation run/financed by Heinz (Ketchup)Kerry. Can you document that? Nobody can hold a candle to the hypocrisy of the Kerrys. They make Al Gore look like a rank amateur.
Dr. Jim Hansen, Chief of the Goddard Space Flight Center's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, N.Y., and one of this year's recipients of a $250,000 Heinz Award, receives his award tonight at a ceremony at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C.
Dr. Hansen began his lifelong study of the Earth’s atmosphere in the 1970s at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies. It was Dr. Hansen’s interest that led the Goddard Institute to concentrate on global climate change.
If a climate skeptic receives any money from industry, the media immediately labels them and attempts to discredit their work. The same media completely ignore the money flow from the environmental lobby to climate alarmists like James Hansen and Michael Oppenheimer. (ie. Hansen received $250,000 from the Heinz Foundation and Oppenheimer is a paid partisan of Environmental Defense Fund) The alarmists have all of these advantages, yet they still feel the need to resort to desperation tactics to silence the skeptics.
