When Scientists Become Crusaders ...

... they cross the line.

In fact, they cross a lot of lines.

See "This is blatant scientific fraud." And gain a better understanding of the mindset that drives the now-discredited global warming movement.  And a better understanding as to why its leaders felt the need to manipulate data.

The fictional Elmer Gantry, in his day, let on like he was a crusader for Christ.  He, like Dr. James Hansen, had a huge following of true-believers.  Until he was exposed for being the fraud that he was.

In the case of Hansen, because he's inflicted so much damage, the demise of his credibility - if not his lucrative gig - couldn't have come soon enough.
