Global warming alarmist since 1988 and head of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies James Hansen has answered his critics who 1) pointed out that his agency put out false but significant data on US warming trends, and 2) refused to publicize these figures after changing them. Wrote Hansen:

This is what we've been getting from environmentalists for decades. If you can't beat 'em on the facts, you smear 'em. It was utterly predictable that Hansen, a very little man with a big title, would go this route.
