The big story today, which we wrote about last night was some outrageous statements made by White House appointed NASA administrator, Michael Griffin.
Today, Jim Hansen, a top NASA scientist is coming back at Griffin hard in an exclusive interview with ABC News. Hansen states:It's an incredibly arrogant and ignorant statement,” Hansen told ABC News. “It indicates a complete ignorance of understanding the implications of climate change.”
In the same week that NASA scientists are reporting that we are at a dangerous and critical global warming tipping point, their top administrator will take to the airwaves tomorrow morning with a very different, if not diametrically opposite message.
