Here we go again with more Obama Administration FOIA (Freedom of Information Antics), this time with a subsidiary of NASA, GISS (Goddard Institute for Space Studies).
According to the Daily Caller GISS doesn’t want to give up any information on Hansen’s outside income that may potentially be a conflict of interest…….
The American Tradition Institute’s (ATI) Environmental Law Center filed a lawsuit Tuesday to force the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to make public ethics records for global warming activist and chief climate scientist at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies James Hansen — to ensure that he did not use his public position for personal gain.
According to ATI, over the past four years Hansen has earned an estimated $1.2 million from outside opportunities.
I guess that they’re perhaps afraid that ATI may find out that Hansen, who’s known about for adding some ‘warming’ here and there might just be adding that ‘warming’ to feather his own nest.
