NASA’s top climate science modeler said…

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.

And here is the Artic ice in January 2008 and January 2018

Arctic Ice 2008

Arctic Ice 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.

    Three decades of rancorous handwavium debate over evidence for and the physics behind the Radiative Greenhouse House Effect and man-caused climate change, aka CAGW.

    What a waste since none of it is real.

    The earth being 33 C warmer with an atmosphere is based on the difference between two completely unrelated made up numbers: 288 K, a wild ass guess pulled straight out of WMO’s butt and 255 K, a theoretical S-B BB ideal calculation for the 240 W/m^2 Long Wave Infrared Radiation leaving the top of the atmosphere.

    Furthermore, the lunar studies by Volokin/Nikolov and Kramm clearly conclude that without an atmosphere the earth would be much like the moon, a barren rock with the lit/hot side maybe 390 K, the dark/cold side maybe 150 K and not even colder by 33 C.

    The LWIR up/down/”back” GHG energy warming loop is a theoretical S-B BB ideal baseline calculation for any surface at 288 K and likewise not real. Contiguous participating media, i.e. atmospheric molecules, render impossible any BB emission from the surface.

    No 33 C warmer + No GHG energy loop = No RGHE & No CAGW.

    Am I wrong?
    Always possible – for all of us.
    ’cause if I’m not wrong decades of research, “evidence,” publications and billions of dollars goes straight in the dumper and the entire trillion dollar global climate change industry is suddenly unemployed.

      Thanks for reading and your comments. I wish more people who reject CAGW and the people propagating this garbage. Imagine what could be done with the billions of U.S. dollars wasted, not to mention the time, resources and billions of Euros and other currencies.

    The animation in this post “masked out all Arctic sea ice which is less than five feet thick. Over the past ten years, thick ice has expanded 1,000 miles into the East Siberian Sea.”


  4. budbromley says:

    This science post from 2008 suggests that there may have been no ice in the Arctic 6,000 to 7,000 years ago.


  5. How did you come to the conclusion that, “There has been an increase in Arctic sea ice thickness and volume over the past ten years.”? To my eye, it looks like a decrease of about one inch. Jan08, thickness is about 20″; Jan18, T=18″ at the start of year. At year end, Jan08: T=18″; Jan18 T=17″.
    Your reading beats Hansen’s prediction but it hardly looks like an increase.


  6. Reblogged this on The GOLDEN RULE and commented:
    There is a need to promote this post. A need for the public to be aware of the unscientific bases supporting the unsupportable claims from the top drivers of pseudo science that still is grimly clung to by political agenda mongols.
    All their predictions are now shown to be incorrect, yet they still somehow have respect.
