Meet the Devil: Hansen and Mann are "Fearmongers"

on

So who are the fearmongers again?

 

“The cycle of alarmist predictions is now well established. Not long before some new UN moot, a prominent fearmonger like James Hansen or Michael Mann will make a tremulous statement about the accelerating tempo of the warming crisis. The cry is taken up by the IPCC and headlined by the New York Times, with exactly the same lack of critical evaluation as that newspaper’s recycling of the government’s lies about Saddam’s WMDs.” – Alexander Cockburn
