Why is a raven like a writing desk?

In Hansen’s world, 2010 was La Nina and 2011 is El Nino.

Even for a near record-breaking year like 2010 the broader context is more important than a single year. “Certainly, it is interesting that 2010 was so warm despite the presence of a La Niña and a remarkably inactive sun, two factors that have a cooling influence on the planet, but far more important than any particular year’s ranking are the decadal trends,” Hansen said.

(2011) Based on sub­sur­face ocean tem­pera­tures, the way these have pro­gres­sed the past sever­al months, and com­parisons with de­velop­ment of prior El Niños, we be­lieve that the sys­tem is mov­ing toward a strong El Niño start­ing this summ­er. It’s not a sure bet, but it is pro­b­able.

So now we know – cold La Nina brings positive anomalies and warm El Nino brings negative anomalies.

    Hansen better get busy if 2011 is going to be another hottest year on record.

    Notice he is setting up an “out”:

    “the presence of a La Niña and a remarkably inactive sun, two factors that have a cooling influence on the planet”

    This will be the message next year – that the world is warming because of humans and we’re all going to diiieeeee, but it is being masked by the “remarkably inactive sun”.

    What’s most remarkable with his blathering about El Nino and La Nina is that he’s stating they are driving the climate.

    Has a psychological evaluation been done on James Hansen yet?
