Hansen and Bill Nye are down there intellectually polluting the atmosphere
A wildfire that began in Boulder County yesterday brought a local flare to James Hansen’s lecture on “The Venus Syndrome,” as he touched on how temperature anomalies are causing wildfires to be more frequent, more destructive, and to burn hotter. “The smoke in the room just adds another dimension,” Nye said, referring to the campfire smell that permeated the building from the recently ignited Flagstaff fire.
Hansen has absolutely no idea what he is talking about. Temperatures in Boulder have declined four degrees over the past sixty years.
He is still promoting his Venus hoax. The lapse rate on Venus is nearly identical to Earth and is nearly identical to the adiabatic lapse rate. The temperature on both planets is determined by atmospheric pressure, not the composition of the atmosphere.
It is a real shame having the clueless driving science.
