James Hansen : Mathematical Mental Midget

December 07, 1988

Dr. James E. Hansen, director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, who presented recent data compiled from computer models, said that predicted regional effects of global warming show that the chances of summer drought in the low and middle latitudes would be 1 in 3 by the year 2030, as against 1 in 20 in the 1950’s.


More than half of the years during the 1950s were drought years. Hansen just makes numbers up as he goes along.

    One wonders whether journalists ever bothered to check simple facts like that

      Only real journalists check facts before publishing stories. Gossip rags publish this type of trash without verifying the facts.
      National Enquirer is a accurate news source compared to some of these sources.
