Numnutz of the Week:

James Hansen uses propaganda tricks perfected by Nazi Propaganda Minister Josef Goebbles to try to convince the world that anti-nuclear is bad and nuclear is **clean** **green** **sustainable**… and also that his own fecal matter is not odoriferous.  Just remember what Goebbles said:  “Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty” and “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”  A perfect description of what James Hansen is doing, whether he understands the source of his strategy or not.
