NASA Climate Scientist Says Bush Administration Trying To Silence Him

The top climate scientist at NASA says the Bush administration has
tried to stop him from speaking out since he gave a lecture last
month calling for prompt reductions in emissions of greenhouse
gases linked to global warming.
Dr. James E. Hansen, 63, is a physicist who joined the space agency in 1967,
is a leading authority on the earth's climate system.

Dr. Hansen said that nothing in 30 years equaled the push made
since early December to keep him from publicly discussing what he
says are clear-cut dangers from further delay in curbing carbon
dioxide.

George Deutsch, a recently appointed public affairs officer at NASA headquarters,
rejected a request from a producer at National Public Radio to interview Dr. Hansen,
said Leslie McCarthy, a public affairs officer responsible for the Goddard Institute.

Citing handwritten notes taken during the conversation, McCarthy said Deutsch called N.P.R.
"the most liberal" media outlet in the country. She said that in that call and others DEUTSCH SAID HIS JOB WAS "TO MAKE THE PRESIDENT LOOK GOOD" and that as a WHITE HOUSE APPOINTEE that
might be Deutsch's priority.

If you'd like to send Herr Deutch your comments, here's
his email address:  george.deutsch-1@nasa.gov

Identify yourself, and be sure not to "annoy" him.
Annoying anonomously is now a Federal crime.

IF THE ADMINISTRATION DOESN'T LISTEN TO A
"LEADING AUTHORITY ON THE EARTH'S CLIMATE SYSTEM",
then exactly where do they get their data from, in order
to make informed decisions on the subject??????

Probably ARCO, Shell, & Citibank.

Buried? I don't know about that 30.Jan.2006 13:47

Here's the link to the New York Times story:

It was above the fold on the front page of the Sunday Times. It's hard to see how that can be called "buried".
