Will the game playing of the news by the Bush administration never end? Check out what the administration has been doing…

The Director of NASA‘s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Dr. James E. Hansen, appeared on 60 Minutes stating that the White House edited climate-related press releases reported by federal agencies to make global warming seem less threatening.

Can you imagine that? They couldn’t even get the intelligence on Iraq right before they tried to force the world into adopting their stand. Now we hear that there is an even bigger issue, which affects the entire world, that they have doctored the results of scientists. They have been going against the advice of scientists. I doubt that anyone in the White House even has a Bachelor of Science, which is the first order college level degree, much less a doctorate, which is the highest level college degree. I guess if you manufacture the news, it matters not.

Dr. Hansen, has challenged global warming, NASA, and, yes, even the White House. Since 1988, the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York City has been very vocal about the effects of greenhouse gases. This Iowa native was one of the first scientists to publicly testify on human-caused climate change. His reason for returning to Iowa is to testify that the proposed Marshalltown, Iowa coal plant will significantly contribute to global warming.

Dr. Hansen continued, “In my more than three decades in the government I’ve never witnessed such restrictions on the ability of scientists to communicate with the public.”

Director Hanson feels that a global tipping point will be reached in 10 years (starting from 2006), if levels of greenhouse gases such as methane and CO2 are not reduced. Once past the tipping point, he says global warming becomes unstoppable.

Dr. Hansen added, “Coal will determine whether we continue to increase climate change or slow the human impact. Increased fossil fuel CO2 in the air today, compared to the pre-industrial atmosphere, is due 50% to coal.”

Dr. Hansen is expected to testify as an expert of Plains Justice at the public hearing of the Iowa Utilities Board on Thursday, January 17. Other opportunities for the public, to hear Dr. Hansen speak, are below…

They hope to see Iowa Legislators at this event:

***WHO: Dr. James Hansen, Director, Goddard Institute for Space Studies, NASA;

***WHAT: Educational briefing by NASA’S top climatology expert;

***WHERE: State Historical Building, Auditorium, on East Locust between East 6th and East 7th Streets, Des Moines; and

***WHEN: Wednesday, January 16, 2008, 6:30 p.m.

AND there’s a briefing in Iowa City:

***WHO: Dr. James Hansen, Director, Goddard Institute for Space Studies, NASA;

***WHAT: Educational briefing by NASA’S top climatology expert;

***WHERE: Old Brick, in Iowa City; and

***WHEN: Thursday, January 17, 2008, 7:00 p.m.

Remember: if we let our planet go past the environmental recovery tipping
point, there won’t be any do-overs!
