Hansen rakes it in

Disclosure Obtained by ATI Environmental Law Center Shows the Wealth Keeps Flowing for Dr. James Hansen

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday, October 3, 2011
Contact: Paul Chesser, Executive Director, paul.chesser@atinstitute.org

As it waits for the resolution of its Freedom of Information Act lawsuit ( http://bit.ly/nnKpxS ) against the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), which seeks the outside employment permission records of global warming activist Dr. James Hansen, American Tradition Institute�s Environmental Law Center has received the belatedly filed 2010 public financial disclosure of the renowned director of the NASA�s Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

ATI obtained Dr. Hansen�s Form SF 278, which is required to be filed annually, also under the Freedom of Information Act. The disclosure revealed that Dr. Hansen received between $236,000 and $1,232,500 in outside income in 2010 relating to his taxpayer-funded employment, which included:
� Between $26,008 and $72,500 in honoraria for speeches;
� Between $150,001 and $1.1 million in prizes;
� Just under $60,000 in the form of in-kind income for travel to his many outside-income generating activities
The travel reporting marked the first time Hansen detailed such �in-kind� benefits, which included apparent first-class travel for him and his wife on trips to Australia, Japan, and Norway. The new detail raises the question of whether Dr. Hansen wrongly submitted forms in previous years, which he left blank and attested �none� in the space where he is required to report travel expenses taken as part of his outside employment, all in years in which he was busy with numerous paid outside activities of the same sort as he was in 2010.

�Now that Dr. Hansen�s outside income has come under scrutiny, we see a newfound attention to detail on forms where he reports about these sources,� said Christopher Horner, ATI�s director of litigation. �It also shows that Dr. Hansen continues to enjoy a healthy level of earnings that supplement � and for his curious exploitation of � the taxpayer-funded position he holds.�
