Cherry Picking The New Normal

During the very hot summer of 1988, James Hansen sabotaged the air conditioning and told Congress that hot summer days were the new normal. It was the ultimate junk science cherry-pick of an outlier during a downward trend.

The second place award for junk science cherry picking goes to Katharine Hayhoe and Andrew Dessler, who pulled the same stunt in Texas during the summer of 2011.

Climate scientists don’t do anything even vaguely related to science. Their job is to keep the money flowing by making unsupported claims which politicians want to hear.

    The spike in 2011 seems far larger than that of 1988. Is that because of the scale used?

    Of course people like Mann and Hayhoe never retract their claims once the heatwave turns out to be a one year flash in the pan.
