NASA's Hansen Films Ad For Upcoming Protest Against Coal

NASA's James Hansen has created an advertisement for a protest at the Capitol Power Plant in Washington, D.C., on March 2.

In the piece, Hansen claims:

We cannot burn all the fossil fuels without creating a very different planet. The only practical way to solve the problem is to phase out the biggest source of carbon and that is coal.

Is this what someone working for the United States government and paid with our tax dollars should be doing (video embedded below the fold):

Last September, Nobel Laureate Al Gore called for this kind of civil disobedience against coal-fired power plants.

Now, he's got one of his key shills in the government advocating such. 

Is this what our tax dollars pay for?

Exit questions: When Gore-loving press members report this protest, will they share how many millions of dollars the Global Warmingist-in-Chief stands to make if America moves away from coal as an energy source?

And will they discuss that it was this very kind of eco-hysteria that moved us away from nuclear power facilities in the '80s and towards coal?

Finally, will they address the number of people who work in the coal industry that will be laid off if Gore and Hansen get their wish?  

Yes, those are rhetorical questions.
