The Wall Street Journal Environmental Capital Blog alerts us to a story on James Hansen:

James Hansen, climate scientist and scourge of our carbon-intensive lifestyle, is the subject of a 5,000-word profile in the current issue of the New Yorker magazine.

In it, he rails against the Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill as watery slop and is critical of environmental-organizations-turned-Washington-insiders. Here’s Mr. Hansen on environmental groups supporting the Waxman-Markey bill: “This is just stupidity…the fact that some of these organizations have become part of the Washington ‘go along, get along’ establishment is very unfortunate.”

The climate-industrial complex at work.
