For some strange reason, it appears that the global warming cult has many of its most ardent followers in Scotland. Now the clan of Scottish warmists have decided to award NASA´s James Hansen with what the Guardian describes "the prestigious Edinburgh Medal".
The Guardian - always happy to promote the cult - gives a glowing presentation of the high priest:
Now 70, Hansen is regarded as one of the most influential figures in climate science; the creator of one of the first global climate models, his pioneering role in warning about global warming is frequently cited by climate campaigners such as former US vice president Al Gore
Hansen will, of course, use this opportunity to present yet another catastrophic global warming scenario and call for a "worldwide tax on all carbon emissions".
The very rich and most profligate energy users, people with several homes, or private jets and fuel-hungry cars, would also be forced into dramatically changing their energy use. In the new paper, Hansen, director of Nasa's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, and his colleagues warn that failing to cut CO2 emissions by 6% now will mean that by 2022, the annual cuts would need to reach a more drastic level of 15% a year.
Will we soon see Hansen´s pupil Al Gore - a member of the group of "the very rich and most profligate energy users, people with several homes, or private jets and fuel-hungry cars" - "dramatically" change his lifestyle and energy use?
