During my nearly sixty years on Earth, I have observed that winters are cold and summers are hot. We sometimes get storms and hurricanes and tornadoes and droughts and floods.
Predators like James Hansen are attempting to convince children that these things didn’t used to happen, even though they know that what they are saying isn’t true.
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.

I wonder why Hansen decided to start lying about the climate?
