The “world’s top rated climatologist” – James Hansen warns that continued use of coal will completely eliminate the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets. Be afraid – be very afraid …..

    James Hansen stated in the past that soot was at least just as responsible as co2. In recent years he has forgotten his peer reviewed papers and is now acting on behalf of his embarassed grandchildren. Stop the continued arrests! Stop the climate Rapture! Decease from your Pinatubo nonsense!

    What else can you expect from someone who was so hung up on Venus?

    After graduate school, Hansen continued his work with radiative transfer models, attempting to understand the Venusian atmosphere. Later he applied and refined these models to understand the Earth’s atmosphere, in particular, the effects that aerosols and trace gases have on Earth’s climate.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Hansen

    Did Steig’s paper ultimately eek out .0000012 C temp rise or something like that? And it was primarily the peninsula?

    So, in a couple hundred thousand years it could…. oh wait.

      lol, something like that, Steig’s paper did show mostly peninsula warming, but that’s what one would expect, knowing that’s where most human activity is occurring. Oddly, O’Donnell’s showed more subtle but more dispersed warming. That said, even the authors note that the temp record is so poor its impossible to tell whether its warming or not.(Two very incomplete data sets for the interior antarctic.) I believe the whole impetus of the O’Donnell paper was an attempt to bring statistical reality to climate studies. I’m not optimistic they were successful in that endeavor.

      Its a funny story, Steig was fairly smug in that the results of both papers could be construed as similar, but as one of the authors noted(I don’t remember which one) , if the results did reflect reality it would be by mere chance that Steig’s results got there.

    The mainstream media talks about Greenland/Artarctic melt as if it is really happening. No sense letting the facts get in the way of a good story.
