Where Is He Now?
John: Cindy Sheehan isn't the only such personality to disappear down a memory hole. NASA's chief climate scientist James Hansen--you know, the one who compared the Bush White House to the Gestapo or the Soviet gulag (because they monitored his media appearances?!?!)--is loudly saying the Waxman-Marley cap and trade bill is a fraud. Yesterday I told a reporter, "James Hansen is the Cindy Sheehan of climate change--great to have around in opposition, but inconvenient, as Gore might say, when you're in power."
