September 20, 2008


A NASA scientist known for his climatology research will speak about climate change during an event Monday at Kansas University.

James E. Hansen, of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, will discuss "Threat to the Planet: Dark and Bright Sides of Global Warming" at 3 p.m. in Spahr Auditorium of Eaton Hall, 1520 W. 15th St. The event is sponsored by the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets.

Hansen testified before Congress in the 1980s about climate change and is credited with raising awareness about the issue.

"I can't wait to hear his answer because nobody has yet answered this simple question for me."Why don't you go have that discussion with him, Devo? Or are you afraid you might here an answer you can't refute?

devo: "... nobody has yet answered this simple question for me."Well, there you have it.It's the simple questions which one must answer for oneself.

The global warming messiah will be here Monday. Kneel at his feet.Partake in his wisdom.Receive his admonishment and his forgiveness.Follow him, the new guilt purveyor. Receive his gift.Anoint him with crude oil.Repent, ye who deny him his scientific sovereignty .Yield to his Nobel and David sword and shield.But ask him the most pertinent question of his realm:Just what is the temperature of the globe? Troposphere, atmosphere, sea surface.5 feet above the ground?I must know his truth. The simple scientific definition of global temperature. Ask him. Receive his wisdom. Look for the clarity of his answer. The beauty, the simplicity. The utter weight of his intellect. I can't wait to hear his answer because nobody has yet answered this simple question for me.
