The Global Warming Inquisition Begins

This story is making the rounds, including The Guardian.
James Hansen, one of the world's leading climate scientists, will today call for the chief executives of large fossil fuel companies to be put on trial for high crimes against humanity and nature, accusing them of actively spreading doubt about global warming in the same way that tobacco companies blurred the links between smoking and cancer.

According to the article, Mr. Hansen also wants to target U.S. Congressmen and lobbyists for daring to disagree with his discredited hypothesis. This is going beyond stupid and illogic. We are witnessing a frightening repeat of history. Even the global warming leftists should recognize and fear Mr. Hansen's tactics. How many times must civilization endure liars who silence their critics with prison and/or death?

I wish this guy would shut up. He is in violation of the Hatch Act- prohibition of government employees from engaging in partisan political activity. Plus, he is making NASA look bad who is now desperately fighting for funding of the Constellation program.
He should be fired.
