A Tale of Two Predictions

Real Climate has done two posts recently that I thought would be served well by their juxtaposition. The first one highlights an early projection of global mean temperatures made by Jim Hansen in 1981.

Scientists flummoxed by snowstorm

As fate would have it, no sooner does a disengenous commenter here point out the unusual cold and snow falling on my hometown of Vancouver, Canada than I come accross this amusing comic from Jen Sorenson:

Roger has really lost the plot (again)

Roger puts up another post (guest post, gotta love plausible deniability) about James Hansen: blah blah blah….dictator who ordered millions of people to be gassed and then burned in crematoria…blah blah blah

Power Shift 09 and Capital Climate Action

Over 12,000 people are expected at a student climate conference this weekend and today over one thousand will gather today in Washington DC.

October 2008, yet another phony record

This is just one of dozens of responses to common climate change denial arguments, which can all be found at How to Talk to a Climate Sceptic. Objection: In October, 2008, Al Gore’s science advisor, James Hansen announced yet another "hottest" month on record. After all the alarmist banner headlines sank in, yet another "correction"…

Hansen Has Been Wrong Before

This is just one of dozens of responses to common climate change denial arguments, which can all be found at How to Talk to a Climate Sceptic. Objection: In 1988 Hansen predicted dire warming over the next decade and he was off by 300%. Why in the world should we listen to the same doom…
