Atmospheric scientist and former James Hanson supervisor John Thoen has this to say about the fruitcake:
"I have publicly said I thought Jim Hansen should be fired,” Theon said. “But, my opinion doesn’t count much, particularly when he is empowered by people like the current president of the United States. I’m not sure what we can do to have him get off of the public payroll and continue with the campaign or crusade. I think the man is sincere, but he is suffering from a bad case of megalomania."
Fired for what? Well, taking a quarter-mil from the Heinz Foundation and then endorsing Kerry, for starters. Of course, Les Enfants readers were aware of this massive, and undisclosed, conflict of interest back in 2007.
