Al Gore's favorite scientist arrested again

If you watch An Inconvenient Truth, you will hear Al Gore mentions only one scientist by name: James Hansen. If you were thinking that Hansen was a calm, rational, reasonable man of learning, then you should think again. From Nature:
NASA climate scientist James Hansen has gotten himself arrested while protesting mountaintop coal mining. Again.

The Huffington Post reports that he was among about 100 people arrested outside the White House yesterday while protesting this particularly troublesome form of coal mining. The same thing happened last June, a few months after Hansen proclaimed his willingness to be arrested during another protest.

WattsUpWithThat has more.
