James Hansen, Uncensored

Terry Gross interviewed NASA climate scientist James Hansen and author Mark Bowen about Bowen's new book Censoring Science: Inside the Political Attack on Dr. James Hansen and the Truth of Global Warming. Listen to the interview here.
Read the intro to the program below:
James Hansen, who's widely described as being NASA's leading climate scientists; he's been studying the topic for more than three decades, and he began speaking publicly about the threat of global warming almost 20 years ago.
Just over a year ago, he went public with a charge that made headlines around the world: The Bush administration, Hansen said, had been trying to silence his warnings about the urgency of the need to address global warming.
Now, writer and scientist Mark Bowen has literally written the book on the affair. It's called Censoring Science: Inside the Political Attack on Dr. James Hansen and the Truth of Global Warming.
