NASA’s Leading Climate Scientist Says Corrupt Politics is Covering Up the Truth About Global Warming
James Hansen, head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, is widely respected as one of the world’s leading climate scientists. He says the public is being lied to and duped by special interest groups about the severity of the threat that global warming poses. He also claims that policy makers and big oil executives are sacrificing public interest to line their own pockets.
“The problem is not political will, it’s the alligator shoes – the lobbyists. It’s the fact that money talks in Washington, and that democracy is not working the way it’s intended to work,” says Hansen.
