Hansen : Blogging More Disruptive Than Jail

Hansen takes a cheap (and lame) shot at Hoerling, implying that posting a couple of paragraphs on Revkin’s blog is more disruptive than going to jail, giving thousands of interviews, altering temperature data over and over again, or wasting a month with Al Gore pretending to be observing Antarctica.

Some scientists may be able to spend their time blogging and e-mailing without a significant impact on their scientific productivity — I’m not one of them — but I do make an effort to make my papers understandable to a wide audience.

    Nothing the Shroud-Waver-General says is cheap, consider these failures to report often elegant air and hotel/resort accommodations received on his SF278 as required by law (the amount of direct cash income received from the party providing him travel, as well, is in parentheses):

  2. Does Hoerling have a blog or did Hansen just make that up?

  3. John B., M.D. says:

    “Understandable” is not the same thing as truthful.

  4. Don Gaddes says:

    Does this mean Hansen is blogging from jail? Whew, they finally got the duplicitous wanker! Now for the rest of them, (Steffen, Cook, Flannery,etc etc.)

  5. Kaboom says:

    Hansen has contributed to science after 1979? And by that I don’t mean the work he is making for honest scientists who have to rebuild the GISS record from scratch after he “fixed it” into uselessness.

  6. Sundance says:

    Hansens sense of self importance combined with his dismissive nature towards other scientists is further evidence of his mental deficits. He is an ill-formed person who lacks judgement and stability and unaware of his numerous inconsistencies such as the one brilliantly pointed out by Steve n this post. You would never see this type of behavior from someone like Feynmann. I think Hansen is teetering on the edge of sanity heading towards (arguably there already) becoming the mad scientist portrayed in B movies. He will become more radical and more detached as he loses noteriety and fades in importance to society.

  7. “Hansens sense of self importance combined with his dismissive nature towards other scientists”

    Err… I think you’ve just described most scientists actually, because that’s human nature. 😉

    On the other hand, Hansen has a worshippers, and some of those should know better.

    Nice put-down. But does this include Gavin Schmidt?

    keep seeing him as Homer S, its a perfect likeness, except homers brighter

    if he didnt have some spiffy govvy alphabet soup departments he arranges and quotes stuff for from etc
    and he was out in the real woprld science wise.
    would anyone give him airtime?
    I really DO wonder if he’d pass a sanity check.I think hes lost the plot bigtime
