Willis Eschenbach: James Hansen is the NASA scientist who is leading the charge to stop all forms of cheap energy. Coal is bad. He calls trains of coal “death trains”. He wants to deny cheap energy to all of those folks in the bottom half. He wants to deny access to cheap energy to everyone, but where it hurts is the bottom half.
