1988 : Hansen/Emmanuel Forecast 225 MPH Winds

FEROCIOUS STORMS AND DROUGHT SEEN

December 07, 1988

Dr. Hansen cited a model prepared by another scientist, Dr. Kerry Emmanuel, showing that the global warming trend is likely to intensify the severity of storms. He said the warming of the ocean would speed evaporation, which would cause more active convection currents in the atmosphere. This increased atmospheric activity could produce storms with 40 percent to 50 percent more kinetic energy than the fiercest storms known today. Hurricanes packing winds up to 225 miles an hour are foreseen.

World Record Wind Gust: 408 km/h

Geneva, 22 January 2010 (WMO) – According to a recent review conducted by a panel of experts in charge of global weather and climate extremes within the WMO Commission for Climatology (CCl) the record of wind gusts not related to tornados registered to date is 408 km/h during Tropical Cyclone Olivia on 10 April 1996 at Barrow Island, Australia. The previous record was of 372 km/h, registered in April 1934 across the summit of Mount Washington, USA.

Eleven years later inn 1999, Hansen wrote this about droughts.

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.

These “scientists” are completely useless spewers of propaganda, which is why the press trusts them.
