A Conversation with Dr. James Hansen.

Apparently it is not allowed to discuss Global Warming, particularly if you happen to be a scientist and especially if that scientist is a NASA expert on the subject.

Please watch and listen to this New York Times vid in which Hansen relates how the US administration prefers to gag his findings.

Climate Expert Says NASA Tried 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.

Regardless of the controversy surrounding this contentious issue, is it
right that the voices of scientists are muzzled by the government because their findings may conflict with their political/financial purposes?

Oil Men don't like to hear about GW and Oil Men running countries like America/Canada (as they are currently are) have the power to silence anyone, no matter who or what the message.

If it is happening in this case, is it also happening to other scientists? Is this the 'smart thing' to do? Does this not undermine the very purpose of science... to understand ourselves and the world we live in?
