The week's news at a glance.

New York

A NASA climate expert says the Bush administration is trying to stop him from warning the public about the link between man-made greenhouse gases and global warming, The New York Times reported this week. James Hansen, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, has made a string of public speeches saying that climate change would render Earth “a different planet” unless emissions from automobiles and other pollution sources are drastically reduced. He said NASA headquarters has ordered public affairs specialists to “censor” all his future speeches and papers. A NASA spokesman said Hansen is simply being subjected to the same clearance procedures that apply to all NASA employees.
