Is he speaking for NASA?: Warmist Jim Hansen (identified as "NASA's James Hansen") goes on Al Gore's TV network, claims we "have" to implement his wealth-redistribution policies to prevent bad weather

James Hansen: 'Neither Party Wants To Offend The Fossil Fuel Industry' | ThinkProgress
And these climate effects — $20 billion effect from this storm. Who’s gonna pay for that? You are, the taxpayer. Not the fossil fuel industry. So what we have to do is collect a fee from the fossil fuel company at the domestic mine or the port of entry and distribute that money to the public.
Hey Jim: Let's say we obediently implemented all of your bad-weather-preventing policies over the last three decades.  Would the New York City storm surge in that scenario have been measurably different than the storm surge we actually saw?  If so, how much different?

Could this show just how out of touch with reality, and not just the climate, that James Hansen really is? It appears that there is already the mechanism in place to ''redistribute the wealth'' regarding the fossil fuel industry.
''Thanks to Uncle Sam, the states and some local governments, gasoline taxes typically raise the price of a gallon of gas by nearly 50 cents.
According to the American Petroleum institute, Americans pay an average of 48.8 cents per gallon in taxes. The federal gas tax is 18.4 cents per gallon, while states set their own gas taxes.''
