White House squelches global warming expert

For yet another example of the Bush administration’s war on science, take a look the Sunday New York Times today. It seems that James Hansen, a NASA climate scientist, has been talking a little bit too much about global warming. The White House wants him to cool it.

The party line apparently is that global warming is a myth, despite disturbing evidence that the average sea level globally has been steadily rising, indicating polar ice cap meltdown. (See this BBC article about rising sea levels for details.)The Daily Kos has a great commentary on the NYT article by DarkSyde, who seems to have an inside track on the allegations.
