James Hansen: ‘Advertisement has convinced the public that global warming is all a hoax’ — (Does he mean the CFACT billboards?)

Professor Hansen: That is a good question because I think that that dialogue is really important. I can specifically comment on the situation in the United States, but I think it is very analogous to the one in the United Kingdom. I have taken some initiative to speak with conservatives in the United States. A large fraction of our members of the Republican Party, which is the more conservative party, have taken the position that this whole climate thing is a hoax, and, because of the huge amount of advertisement in the media, have even convinced a fraction of the public-perhaps a quarter or a third-that this is all a hoax dreamed up by scientists who want to get research funding, which is, of course, silly.
