Here's the interview
the Bush administration didn't want you to hear!
The lead story on the New York Times last Sunday read: "Top NASA climate scientist says the Bush administration is trying to stop him from speaking out on global warming."
The scientist is James E. Hansen - NASA's number one climate watcher, who says he's been muzzled on a dire threat facing the planet. The media James Hansen was trying to talk to? Well, yes, it was NPR, as the Times reported, but more specifically, it was WBUR's On Point.
Hansen is on the air now from the show that was this morning.
He's be talking about the danger of a different planet being inevitable soon without dramatic action, and the danger of politics cutting the public off from the warnings of their own scientists.
Also on the show is the NYT reporter Andrew Revkin, who wrote the story.
