Climate alarmism and groupthink

Via Benny Peiser's CCNet emails, Tom Nelson investigates the links between prominent climate alarmists and suggests, not a conspiracy, but:

When this worldwide global warming hysteria inevitably dies, it will probably become clear that a core cause was groupthink among a surprisingly small set of people.
One such, in some ways the man at the centre, is James Hansen of NASA'a Goddard Institute for Space Studies. Hansen's work was also at the heart of the global cooling scares of the 1970s.

It may have started as groupthink among a bunch of inept, incompetent, hubristic pseudo-scientists, but it has developed into self-aggrandising crookedness.
