Can you agree that the weather has been doing flip flops from horrible winters around parts of this nation to a lot of heat records being set around parts of the nation.. especially noteworthy this summer when I have, in fact, needed to put the space heaters on
from time to time... which until this year was unheard of.
Now... I wont dispute your assessment of James Hansen.... but I might dispute your seeming poopooing of Nasa observations in general on climate.
Rella, there is no question that the climate is changing. It has been changing since the very beginning. But that really has nothing to do with the whole "climate change" movement. And James Hansen and the rest of the movement has been doctoring data for years to bend the discussion to fit their narrative
The climate change movement is an anti-American, anti-human movement. It is based upon the idea that human beings are destroying the planet and it would really be better off without humans; or at least better off with a lot fewer humans.
You must understand that the entire argument for the coming disaster for the planet has its foundation on computer modelling with has proven to be wrong in any verification study. The move to get rid of fossil fuels is a move to depopulate the planet. The situation as it now stands is based entirely on the availability of low-cost, readily available, planet-wide energy. None of the renewables fit that description. Get rid of fossil fuels and we will be back to conditions of 150-200 years ago which was, for nearly everyone, a subsistence living situation.
There is no data which says that the planet cannot tolerate a couple of degree-increase in global temperature and provide for the projected population of humans over the next decades or centuries; and that perhaps even better than it is today.
