Will The Real Jim Shady Please Stand Up, Please Stand Up …

Hansen said the exact opposite in 1999

Empirical evidence does not lend much support to the notion that climate is headed precipitately toward more extreme heat and drought. The drought of 1999 covered a smaller area than the 1988 drought, when the Mississippi almost dried up. And 1988 was a temporary inconvenience as compared with repeated droughts during the 1930s “Dust Bowl” that caused an exodus from the prairies, as chronicled in Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath.

There is no indication that droughts are getting worse. In 1934, 80% of the US was simultaneously experiencing drought. 190001-201202.gif (650×534)

Over the past decade, extreme drought has plummeted in the US.

So what evidence caused him to change his mind?

    Yes, we need the Government to confiscate what little money we have left and have it done right this instant or else it will be too late!

    We hold sellers of soap to higher ethical standards than NASA?

    The “extreme drought” graph almost looks like a plot of sunspot numbers … any connection?

    Why are you using a reference that’s 13 years old? That’s more than one generation in science.

    What did Einstein have to say about it?

    I repeat, will the real Jim Shady please stand up?
    We’re gonna have a protest here..

    Y’all act like you never seen data adjustment before
    Jaws all on the floor, cuz Mann just burst in the door
    and started shaking his hockey stick worse than before
    the trends had diverged, so he threw the data overboard (Ahh!)
    It’s the return of the… “Ah, wait, no way, you’re kidding,
    he didn’t just do what I think he did, did he?”
    And Dr. Schneider said… nothing you idiots!
    Dr. Schneider’s dead, he’s locked in my basement! (Ha-ha!)
    Enviromentalists love Mann’n’Jim

    Having arrested Hansen, they should have had him sectioned and confined to a padded cell for our own protection.
