      Depends on which past you pick. Given the snow in New England this one might be appropriate.

      • Hey Gail. Boston has received 77 inches of snow this winter so far. That would be a mild winter for us uptate NY’ers huh. The winter I lived in ‘cuse we got 171 inches. Go Orange Men!!

        Somehow, I doubt that the Mississippi Delta and the DelMarVa Peninsula looked exactly the same when the ice coverage was at that extent.

          If being more representative of the gaps in our knowledge of the past is better, then sure, it’s better.

          I don’t mean to bitch at you, Gail. It just bothers me that people seem to think that the world had always been exactly the way they rememer it as children, until Homo Carbonensis started messing with it.

          The world changes, folks. Live with it.

          No problem Lee.

          I realize the second map is much more accurate. I used the first because it is more dramatic and gets the point across that the glaciers did not cover the entire area north of 43°N (Toronto, Ont., Can.) The use of light gray for ice and dark gray for polar desert just doesn’t make it easy to see for the casual reader.

          Too bad the first map isn’t a bit more accurate. I think the guy pulled up a current topo and just added the glaciers to it.

          Unfortunately the Siberian map is even harder to understand at first glance. Since it does not even have the small light gray section labeled as ice and the dark gray as desert.

    That seems more of an indictment on Markey than Hansen. Anyone can guess wrong. But to double down on it after it is proven wrong is just stupid.

  3. Hansen also predicted a runaway greenhouse tipping point, Earth’s oceans would boil away and it will be like Venus. I’m glad I knew ahead of time so I could buy a runaway greenhouse rider on my homeowners insurance from State Funnyfarm

    Global warming is wreaking climate havoc wherever it rears its ugly head. I predict in 5 years Phoenix winters will be ice-free.

  5. Andy DC says:

    It has only been 8 years since Markey made that statement and already Gore and Hansen are already recognized as apes and buffoons, not prophets!

    • Gail Combs says:

      Hansen lost his credibility when he started protesting. He further lost it when ex-senator Wirth bragged about how he and Hansen DUPED Congress. just to give Mass. Gov. Dukakis an edge in his run for president.

      Now Wirth works for the man who said “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” at the United Nations Foundation.

    “climate prophet” —-> climate profit

    Hansen, echoing work by other scientists…

    Yeah. Seems like a lot of echoing has been going on in climate-so-called-science.

    I wish where I live here in Central Indiana and where I’ve been driving was “ice free”. Despite a little warming here early this week that my wife told me even brought some flies and wasps out I still have a chunk of ice in my front yard. Now it’s blowing and snowing again.

    I guess there is a good side to it though. Getting warm enough to bring out some of the bugs and then this arctic cold following will help keep the population of the little buggers down some this spring.
