NASA climate expert: thank China when they bring the U.S. to its knees

"Pay no attention to the man behind the government's space agency global warming/climate change/environmental welfare agenda!" 

It's the Wizard of Oz, for rocket scientists. Sorta. Except in this one, it seems the wicked ones are the heroes. 

NASA's climate expert is also an expert on governing with an iron hand rather than an open mind, it would seem. Few seem to be paying attention to him, especially leading media outlets in the United States, it seems, based on coverage of his wacky comments. Upon seeing what he said, you might just think the leading NASA climate expert is as crazy as a bouncing bag of squirrels.

China-style dictatorship of climatologists
NASA's Hansen prefers rule by decree to fight 'global warming'

The Washington Times' Patrick Michaels is among the few in big media who have been willing to quote a NASA leader, bringing needed attention to his pro-dictatorship, pro-China, anti-democracy, anti-American rants with regard to global climate change policy.
... NASA laboratory head James Hansen's anti-democracy rants were published while he was on a November junket in China, but they didn't get much attention until recently. On Jan. 12, the hyperprolific blogger Marc Morano put them on his Climate Depot site, and within hours, the post went viral. In a former life, Mr. Morano was chief global-warming researcher for Sen. James M. Inhofe, Oklahoma Republican.

According to [NASA's] Mr. Hansen, compared to China, we are "the barbarians" with a "fossil-money- 'democracy' that now rules the roost," making it impossible to legislate effectively on climate change. Unlike us, the Chinese are enlightened, unfettered by pesky elections. Here's what he blogged on Nov. 24:

"I have the impression that Chinese leadership takes a long view, perhaps because of the long history of their culture, in contrast to the West with its short election cycles. At the same time, China has the capacity to implement policy decisions rapidly. The leaders seem to seek the best technical information and do not brand as a hoax that which is inconvenient."
Uhh... NASA, fire him, please.
