Recent heat waves that have triggered wildfires, droughts, and heat-related deaths in the United States and around the globe “almost certainly would not have occurred” without global warming—and will become more routine in coming years, NASA climate scientist James Hansen says.
This is a blatant lie by the world’s greatest climatologist. Heatwaves used to be much worse in the US, and have been becoming progressively less severe. In 1913, the Midwest had a heatwave which caused 20 straight days over 100 degrees at Clinton, Missouri. The last year that came anywhere close to that was 1980, when CO2 was well below 350 PPM
During a 90 day stretch in 1936, maximum temperatures at Appleton City, Missouri averaged 101 degrees.
Weather this hot is incomprehensible now. James Hansen is a fraud, who has been spreading junk science for decades and is a hero of the left for doing exactly that.
