Tracing Hansen’s Insanity

Gavin’s FakeClimate website bragged last year about a 1981 Hansen forecast which was below GISS.

RealClimate: Evaluating a 1981 temperature projection

I overlaid his 1988 forecast (red) on top of the 1981 forecast, to show how he lost his mind between 1981 and 1988.

So how did his 1988 forecast do? Temps are below his zero emissions Scenario C.

    Seems he and Dr Stephen Schneider were conferring

    “To capture the public imagination, we have to offer up some scary scenarios, make simplified dramatic statements and little mention of any doubts one might have. Each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective, and being honest.”

    – Leading greenhouse advocate, Dr Stephen Schneider
    ( in interview for “Discover” magagzine, Oct 1989)

    Hansen just came out of the closet a bit earlier.

    H/T to Dr. John Daly’s website.

    These faux scientists now have a long track record, clearly documenting their failed science and now their utter corruption and insanity. It should not be hard to get this information out to the public in a conservative leaning media outlet, like Forbes or the Wall Street Journal.

      What makes you think the message hasn’t gotten out there? Also via Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Shawn Hannity, and others. A majority of Americans get the scam part.

    Hansen’s 1988 failed prediction proves that we are all doubly doomed. /

    Ever since ’88, Hansen’s prediction has been the guiding framework for the doomer “scary scenario” fabricators. That prediction, though, turned out to be outrageously off the mark. “Reality” shows virtually nothing as far as temperature gain, but their climate models, reflecting Hansen’s unrestrained fear mongering, show skyrocketing temps. Wrong. Period. End of story.

    Well, I guess it’s not end of story actually. These Chicken Littles just keep on going, like the Energizer Bunny. Now they are even more certain then ever that temperatures are going to rise even higher than Hansen predicted. 95% certain now, this in the face of the undeniable glaring failure of their models and past predictions? Now Hansen is saying that it is going to rise 6 maybe 10 degrees, or worse Hansen claims the oceans will rise 75 meters… before they boil away! It’s unbridled lunacy. But the leftist msm doesn’t call them on it.

    Indeed all of the foundational elements of the agw scare mongering campaign have been removed. All of them. The foundations of their theory.. are gone, kaput. The hockey stick showed runaway 20th century warming and no MWP or LIA. Debunked. The causal correlation between CO2 & temps that in 1988 the IPCC contended was proven… debunked as false. Antarctic ice at record levels?? Not an issue for the warmists despite their predictions to the contrary. Record current levels of overall sea ice? That’s to be expected, but not what they predicted. But the leftist elitist climate clowns are now more certain than ever that we are doomed. Right rudy. Put them all in straight jackets.

  4. I hope that you will consider lending a hand to Mark Steyn, if you are not already doing so.

    I just have to say I love this website. Lifts my spirits every time I drop in, which is several times a day. Thanks for the effort. Truly appreciated.

    Nice. Even Harold Camping’s predictions that Judgement Day is a coming were relatively non-controversial until he started putting a date on it. Hansen followed a similar path towards his own personal Apocalypse, it seems.

    Steve,
    There’s another great graph for your attention on page 9 here:

    The conclusion is clear: high emissions are the same (climatologically) as no emissions.
