In 1988, James Hansen told Congress that the Midwest will have frequent episodes of very high temperatures in the current decades, predicted 3 to 9 degrees warming by 2025, and predicted 1 to 4 feet sea level rise by the middle of this century.
In fact, the exact opposite occurred. The frequency of hot days in the Midwest has plummeted over the past century, with 1988 being the last really hot summer.
Temperatures have risen just over 0.2 C since 1988, and that is mainly due to the current El Nino. Next year will probably be cooler than 1988. Hansen’s forecasts missed by more than 2000% so far.
NOAA says that sea level is rising 1.8 mm/year. That is a rise of less than two inches since 1988. Hansen’s forecasts missed by more than 1000% so far.
absolute global sea level rise is believed to be 1.7-1.8 millimeters/year.
Then these world class buffoons known as “climate scientists” went on to predict lowering of Great Lakes water levels.
Greta Lakes water levels are exactly the same as they were in 1988.
Hansen and his fellow alarmists have demonstrated repeatedly that they are completely incompetent and understand nothing about the climate. Yet governments push forward with mass insanity based on Hansen’s junk science.
