Hansen Caught Lying Again

Hansen’s new paper is chock full of world class madness, but this direct contradiction of his past claims stands out.

March 27, 2013

Humanity, so far, has burned only a small portion of total fossil fuel reserves and resources.

This is the exact opposite of his agenda from five years ago.

6 April 2008

Hansen said his findings were not a recipe for despair. The good news, he said, is that reserves of fossil fuels have been exaggerated, so an alternative source of energy will have to be rapidly put in place in any case.

    You don’t have to go very far before the cracks start to show –

    Hansen does not know…
    Unfortunately, the first satellite mission capable of measuring the needed aerosol characteristics (Aerosol Polarimetry Sensor on the Glory satellite, (Mishchenko et al 2007)) suffered a launch failure and as yet there are no concrete plans for a replacement mission.
    The human-made aerosol climate forcing thus remains uncertain. IPCC (2007)concludes that aerosols are a negative (cooling) forcing…

    So we’ll have a guess based on prejudice
    …So is the new data we present here good news or bad news, and how does it alter the ‘Faustian bargain’? At first glance there seems to be some good news. First, if our interpretation of the data is correct, the surge of fossil fuel emissions, especially from coal burning, along with the increasing atmospheric CO2 level is ‘fertilizing’ the biosphere, and thus limiting the growth of atmospheric CO2 .

    Then blame it all on the productive foriegners
    Also, despite the absence of accurate global aerosol measurements, it seems that the aerosol cooling effect is probably increasing based on evidence of aerosol increases in the Far East and increasing ‘background’ stratospheric aerosols.

    More outgassing from Hansen.

    Hansen is too busy adjusting past data records to adjust his past publications. Since when does he know anything about global fossil fuel reserves anyway?

    Not only that, but, the idjit didn’t bother to check if he was right or not about the increased SO2 emissions. Shock news!!!! He wasn’t…. http://iopscience.iop.org/1748-9326/8/1/014003/article

    I’ve got a post up about it, but others may like to word it differently. 🙂

    Steve,
    Hansen didn’t lie — the newspaper quote was wrong.

    Below is a direct quote of James Hansen given on January 27, 2008 — 9 weeks before the Guardian article.

    “Fossil fuel emissions so far are a small fraction of known reserves and potentially recoverable resources, as shown in Figure 1. There are uncertainties in estimated reserves and resources, some of which may not be economically recoverable with current technologies and energy prices. But there is already more than enough fossil fuel reserve to transform the planet, and fossil fuel subsidies and technological advances will make more and more of the resources available.”

    Hansen quite plainly tells us in his own 2008 statement that there are uncertainties in estimated fossil fuel reserves but what has been used so far is only “a small fraction” of potentially recoverable resources. He also references a graph that supports this statement.

    You should be a bit more diligent in your research before you incorrectly call someone a liar as it only reduces your own credibility.

    Predictive powers concerning climate is unreal.
    Our neighbor, Mars now has what is called a dead core. As such it has no magnetosphere or any of the usual spheres associated with it and within it, such as a multi-layered & always changing ionosphere, mesosphere, stratosphere and troposphere.
    So, the temperature and pressure soup combined with the plasma above, right on down to the air we breathe and the ever-changing particle soups within each layer leave a long train of knowledge, yet to be known.
    When a group forms to make a working hypothesis based on molecular C02 only, you need to ask yourself, WTF!
    From the mutated ferrous core of our planet to the electromagnetic forces acting upon and interacting with our spheres, the climatologists have missed a boatload.
    As we know, when the magnetic fields generated from the core start to pop out in each hemisphere at other than the pole confinements, a switch in polarity is coming.
    If the MSM enjoys alarmist articles to scare the shit out people so much, they should pen up an article covering a 40 day dual planetary rift and a magnetospheric polarity shift (looks like a short duration dead core) for a big seller. Their ratings would soar!
