NASA “Climate Prophet” James Hansen said the Arctic would be “Free of Summer Ice” by 2018
Bolstered by the sycophantic-praise he received following his 1988 Congressional testimony on man-made global warming, NASA climate scientist/activist James Edward Hansen continued his prophesies well into the 2000s–despite his ever-growing list of climate fails.
“The greenhouse effect is here,” pronounced doomsayer Hansen back on June 23, 1988.
“We’re [still] toast,” he repeated with a straight face 20 years later, in 2008.
in preparation for his 1988 Congressional testimony, scientists/activist Hansen produced three potential scenarios regarding the future trend for global average temperatures:
A) “Business As Usual” — if human’s did nothing regarding rising CO2 levels.
B) If we managed to moderately reduced CO2 emissions.
C) If atmospheric carbon dioxide was reduced to year 2000 levels.
Scenarios A and B significantly over-predict the warming trend. Digging into the Hansen’s data, A overstates CO2 and other greenhouse gas growth and rejects against the observations; Scenario B slightly understates CO2 growth, overstates methane and CFCs and zeroes-out other greenhouse gas growth, and it too significantly overstates the warming.
The scenario that best-matches the observations is C — the one where Hansen has CO2 topping-out at 368 ppm in 2000 but then sees it fixed at that level thereafter (something that obviously didn’t happen). Yet this scenario ended up with a warming trend most like the real world observations.
Here is one thought, proposed by climate scientist John Christy:
Suppose Hansen had offered a Scenario D, in which greenhouse gases continue to rise, but after the 1990s they have very little effect on the climate. That would play out similarly in his modeled Scenario C, and it would match the data — this hypothetical Scenario D is the reality we’re living today.
James Edward Hansen is still considered a “climate prophet” by many, but his 1988 scenarios simply DO NOT FIT THE DATA–speaking of which, let’s look at his Arctic sea ice predictions.
Back in 2008, Hansen claimed that within just “five to 10 years, the Arctic will be free of sea ice in the summer”:
10 years after Hansen made his ice-free claim, Arctic sea ice volume was up 7% from when he made his prophesy, and melting at the slowest rate on record, according to data composed by Tony Heller at realclimatescience.com:
How anyone can be so wrong for so long and yet still garner the praise and accolades James Hansen does is testament to the agenda at play.
The political tool that is Global Warming will keep-on-rolling, for as long it’s needed, and the ever-growing line of the poor & ill-informed will continue following that Pied Piper into the Hamelin cave, where their self-respect and ability to think-critically will never be seen again.
Objective scientific research –stifled these days– leads one to think it’s the COLD TIMES are returning, that the lower-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow. Even NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with their forecast for this upcoming solar cycle (25) seeing it as “the weakest of the past 200 years,” with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Don’t fall for bogus, political agendas.
Prepare for the COLD — learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
