In 1988, Hansen sabotaged the air conditioner at Congressional hearings, in order to make Congress stupid and gullible to his scam.
And did you also alter the temperature in the hearing room that day? …
What we did it was went in the night before and opened all the windows, I will admit, right? So that the air conditioning wasn’t working inside the room and so when the, when the hearing occurred there was not only bliss, which is television cameras in double figures, but it was really hot. … So Hansen’s giving this testimony, you’ve got these television cameras back there heating up the room, and the air conditioning in the room didn’t appear to work. So it was sort of a perfect collection of events that happened that day, with the wonderful Jim Hansen, who was wiping his brow at the witness table and giving this remarkable testimony.
Tomorrow’s hearing is occurring in near record cold. After 25 years of unprecedented warming, it seems only sensible to turn off the heat – to keep the Congressmen safe from global warming.
