In 1988, NASA’s top climate expert told Congress that the Midwest will face frequent episodes of very high temperatures and drought in the coming decades.

In fact, the exact opposite has occurred. The frequency of hot days has plummeted since 1988 in the midwest, and is down 80% since the 1930’s.
The Midwest has been getting progressively wetter, with almost no drought since Hansen made his forecast.

James Hansen is considered the world’s top climate scientist, and has no idea what he is talking about. It only gets worse as you go down the ladder.
This is done in front of US senate-respect!
Why quote Chicago Tribune when Hansen’s direct words are available using a quick search?

As usual media drops all mention of uncertainty that Hansen put in. “Climate models are certainly an imperfect tool at this point”, “I would like to stress that there is a need for improving these global climate models” etc. So maybe Hansen “didn’t have a clue”, but at least he was aware of it.
He was merely providing a caveat in the event he turned out to be wrong. It`s called covering his ass which he`s had to do ever since then. He`s like a little boy in grade 2 giving his mother excuses for failing all his subjects by telling her that he actually passed everything with flying colours but all his teachers were grade deniers.
So he recognizes this short comings and we are supposed to invest $billions, if not $trillions in mitigation into what is turning out to be a non-problem?
Hey Mike H! “So he recognizes this short comings…”
Yeah, go figure! And at the same time, the CAGW cult members tell us that anyone who is unconvinced is a denier, that the science is settled, and that it is basic high school physics.
The CAGW community has raised the art of Orwellian double-think to any entirely new level. Amazing!
The source of energy that powers the Sun and sustains every atom, life and planet in the solar system is indelibly recorded in exact rest masses of the 3,000 types of atoms that compromise all matter.
Einstein reported mass (m) is stored energy (E) in 1905:
E = mc^2
Aston measured the exact rest masses of the atoms and reported in the last paragraph of his Nobel Lecture in 1922:
1. The PROMISE of “powers beyond the dreams of scientific fiction”, and
2. The WARNING nuclear energy might be uncontrollable and change Earth to a star
After atomic bombs destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Aug 1945, independent nations and national academies of sciences were united on Oct 1945 to
1. Avoid Aston’s WARNING of nuclear annihilation, and to
2. Sacrifice Aston’s PROMISE of essentially unlimited energy.
NAS directed public funds to scientists to claim ~97% “consensus scientific evidence” for false standard models of Earth’s climate, the cosmos, the nucleus and the Sun.
Hmmmm is that good or bad
Hansen is not a scientist, he is a dishonest salesman, a grantologist. I just wish the laws that apply to marketers also applied to grantologists.
He is also an activist.
Pity Hansen did not have access to common knowledge available, even in his days.

Note tables II and III.
The Gleissberg cycle has been calculated from isotope measurements to be 86-88 years, 43-44 years of cooling followed by 43-44 years of cooling.
To calculate approximate drought times in the USA, just add 86-87 years.
i.e. dust bowl drought 1932-1939
+ 87 years
43-44 years of cooling followed by 43-44 years of cooling.
sorry, that should read
43-44 years of cooling followed by 43-44 years of warming.
to understand the behavior of sun-earth interaction, here is a [one] key
from the big zero in ca. 1970 till the big zero in 2013 is 43 years….half the Gleissberg cycle
It only gets worse as you go down the ladder.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
but I don’t think global cooling is something to laugh about.
ice ages have not brought forth much life, I am afraid….
The Climate Change agenda, is as fragile as the incumbent Government that supports it..!
We’ve had one hot, dry summer in the Corn Belt during the last 27 years, when they used to be a rather common experience. When you combine that with fewer hurricanes, tornadoes and wildfires, an excellent argument can be made that CO2 has significantly improved the climate.
Andy DC… whatever improvements or negative outcomes occur ; CO2 has next to nothing to do with it.! But it’s good, when “Natural Variability” is running with you…
If Hansen said the models should be refined or improved, in 1988, why the hell doesn’t he get on with it.
A friend of mine who is a scientist and a modeler (although not a climate modeler) starts off many of his presentations with the following: “All models are wrong . . . some . . . are useful.”
I’ve seen worst…. including people who made confusions between climate and weather, like shown here: http://oceansgovernclimate.com/weather-and-climate-do-they-know-what-they-are-talking-about/.
