On June 24, 2008, Associated Press (AP) and the channels that distribute AP reported that Dr. James Hansen, NASA’s chief climate modelling expert, told Congress, “We’re toast if we don’t get on a different path.” And, “This is the last chance.” And, “The thing that I think is the most important is to block coal-fired power plants.”
“We see a tipping point occurring right before our eyes,” Hansen told AP. “The Arctic is the tipping point and it’s occurring exactly the way we said it would,” he said.
“Hansen, echoing work by other scientists, said that in five to 10 years, the Arctic will be free of ice in summer.”
U.S. Senator Ed Markey, Democrat of Massachusetts (a U.S. Representative in 2008) and head of the committee that heard Dr. Hansen’s testimony, added, “Dr. Hansen was right. Twenty years later, we recognize him as a climate prophet.”
As I write this, it is April 10, 2018. In just over 2 months from today it will be 10 years since Dr. Hansen’s dire warnings. So, let’s take a look at the ice in the Arctic North Pole and compare 2008 with 2018.
But first, here is the AP article from a newspaper. The details are interesting.
Here’s the link to the newspaper:
And here is the Artic ice in January 2008 and January 2018
There has been an increase in Arctic sea ice thickness and volume over the past ten years. Meanwhile, taxpayers and donors to the climate scheme have had billions of dollars re-destributed out of their wallets under color of authority.
U.S. Senators especially Democrats like Markey, Brian Schatz, Maizie Hirono and many others should reconsider their positions, their votes and spending the people’s money and time on such demonstrable nonsense as human-caused climate change, previously called global warming and Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW), as well as the United Nations and the myriad U.S. government bureaucracies, programs, policies, laws and NGOs that depend on this nonsense for funding. Soon the people will begin questioning what they knew and when did they know it.
The stink of fraud is in the air.
