James Hansen is generally considered the godfather of global warming alarmists. He recently retired from NASA’s Goddard Institute. What he says is swallowed by his followers and a naïve press without a dissenting murmur or a moment’s checking.
He, and his fellow warmists, are working in overdrive to produce as much shocking material as possible in the run up to the all important Paris conference when the world’s leaders are supposed to dip into our pockets like never before to stop the rise of CO2. According to Hansen this is the planet’s last chance to save us from a scary scenario of rising sea levels, record droughts, catastrophic storms, horrendous loss of life – in fact every conceivable negative effect you can imagine.
Hansen has been leading from the front. His latest paper is a monument to idiocy and gratuitous, publicity-seeking, humbug. He and a bunch of no-name sycophants have predicted a warming of “at least 2 degrees” (would have been nice this morning!!) and “sea level rise of 3 metres by 2100” with another 2 metres within a “couple of decades”. The paper contains unscientific language describing “super storms” wreaking havoc around the world. (Can feel a movie in the making? Where are you Sir Peter??)
