…You’ll be a tree killer and global warming enabler or something if you do.
While we’re talking about environmental murder, it is with great pleasure that I take on global warming with today’s episode of Stutistics. In case you missed the debut a few weeks ago, Stutistics is my new series on GBTV that gives you a shareable, digestable, and understandable way to absorb stats that will help defeat your annoying friends in arguments. All in 3 minutes or less.
That’s plenty of time to debunk a fantastic fail of a prediction by global warming darling, Dr. James Hansen in episode 2 of Stutistics.
The debate about global warming is always stuck on trying to prove whether the future predictions of doom from global warming alarmists are correct or not. Unfortunately, there’s no way to know. They’re predictions. They don’t get proven right or wrong for decades.
Luckily, these same people have been whining about the same thing for so long, we can check their guesses from the past. In 1988, Al Gore’s favorite scientist James Hansen laid out three scenarios for what could happen to temperatures in the future if we dismissed his cries to heed global warming.
As we show in Stutistics, his predictions and the actual temperatures don’t really match up. At all. Shocking, I know.
Climate scientist Dr. John R. Christy was one of the first people to take a hard look at Hansen’s predictions to see if they were accurate.
He’s not just some guy. He’s the exact type of accomplished scientist that the left says doesn’t exist.
-Is a Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science and Director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama in Huntsville
-Was awarded NASA's Medal for Exceptional Scientific Achievement in 1991, along with Dr. Roy Spencer.
-Received a Special Award by the American Meteorological Society "for developing a global, precise record of earth's temperature from operational polar-orbiting satellites, fundamentally advancing our ability to monitor climate” also along with Dr. Roy Spencer.
-Has served as a Contributor (1992, 1994, 1996 and 2007) and Lead Author (2001) for the U.N. reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in which the satellite temperatures were included as a high-quality data set for studying global climate change.
-Has served on five National Research Council panels or committees and has performed research funded by NASA, NOAA, DOE, DOT
-And just because he’s a super guy, even taught the less fortunate physics and chemistry as a missionary teacher in Nyeri, Kenya for two years.
Now, he’s no Dr. James Hansen. Did Dr. Christy advise Al Gore on his factually incorrect film “An Inconvenient Truth?”
Was Christy asked to “refrain from including unproven remarks in public releases and websites.”
I think I’ll take Christy’s word over Hansen’s any day. But, I don’t have to take his word, and neither do you. The facts are clear, and the data tell the story. For the complete analysis of how James Hansen went spectacularly wrong on his global temperatures predictions be sure to watch Stutistics. We did the analysis originally for Fusion magazine, but you can see most up to date temperature data here.
Oh, and can someone please forward this video to Al Gore? I think he needs to see it.
