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.
I thought Hansen was an astrophysicist, until he smelt the money of the CAGW gravy train.
He’s a millionaire now, & has been a fraud since he & Senator Tim Wirth sabotaged the Congress air conditioning, on the traditionally hottest day of the year, in the middle of a heat wave, June 1988, when Hansen testified before Congress, & more importantly, before the TV cameras, of the potentially catastrophic dangers of man made global warming.
It’s been a scam, start to finish.
And, once again, the mid 1930s heat shows up.
You know, the 1930s heat wave that was nothing compared to nowadays.
Sarcasm heavily intended….
He’s a nut case. Three arrests now or has he gotten more?
I seriously think that anyone who participates in the IPCC is putting their own homes at risk because sooner or later the association will get sued for their appallingly bad advice.
The biggest irony would be if sceptics participate and then even though they disagree, they end up having to contribute the huge damages awarded against the IPCC merely for trying to be good citizens.
The IPCC is an intergovernmental body; that’s what the ‘I’ stands for. As such it can’t be sued.
A cell in Gitmo along side the rest of the criminal gang.
Simply astounding that the past was so much hotter. I have extensively examined the actual data from state monthly climatic recods, located at the NWS library and know it to be true.
Clinton is a nice quiet town where kids cruise the downtown square with their CO2 belching 60’s muscle cars. Well at least in the early 80’s when I was there.
