James Hansen’s Scary New Math

A new analysis by the NASA climatologist for the first time ties specific weather events to human-induced climate change

How can NASA physicist and climatologist James E. Hansen, writing in the New York Times today, “say with high confidence” that recent heat waves in Texas and  Russia “were not natural events” but actually “caused by human-induced climate change”?

It wasn’t all that long ago that respected MIT atmospheric scientist Kerry Emanuel flatly refuted the notion that you can pinpoint global warming as the cause of an extreme weather event. “It’s statistical nonsense,” he told PBS.

In 2005, Emanuel reported that hurricane intensity, which is fed by warmth, had increased some 80 percent during the previous 50 years, a period during which temperatures had increased more dramatically than any time in at least 500 years. Nonetheless, he asserted, that didn’t mean Hurricane Katrina, the sixth strongest Atlantic storm on record, had been brought on by climate change.

Complete BS. Hansen has blamed practically every weather event since 1988 on coal death trains, evil oil executives, or missing Arctic ice.

The most intense hurricane in US history occurred in 1935, and seven of the ten most intense hurricanes occurred below 350 ppm. It has been seven years since a major hurricane hit the US – the longest period on record.

Is there any way to make these babbling morons shut up?

    lol. perfect example of a rhetorical question!

  2. The extreme weather meme is going to backfire because it’s so obviously stupid. As I pointed out, when this strategy was attempted by government appointed researchers yesterday, a major media outlet seemed to declare “bullshit” and actually got a sceptic on the bulletin to have the last word. His last word being, if I recall correctly, “this report is a travesty against science.”

    I have never seen that happen before. Up until now the major middle of the road media outlets have always been uncritically supportive of AGW claims.

    Yes, and everyone laughed at him. Sadly, the answer to your question is no. These babbling baboons won’t shut up. Their aim is to advocate and deceive. They are serial liars and they told us they would do exactly this.

    “I would freely admit that on [global warming] we have crossed the boundary from news reporting to advocacy.”——Charles Alexander, Time Magazine science editor

    “Rather than seeing models as describing literal truth, we ought to see them as convenient fictions which try to provide something useful.”—-David Frame, climate modeler, Oxford University

    The serial dishonesty of these morons is transparent.

    “In 2005, Emanuel reported that hurricane intensity, which is fed by warmth, had increased some 80 percent during the previous 50 years..”

    One has to wonder where those figures come from, especially since ACE has been declining, not increasing.

  5. Shooter says:

    Katrina wasn’t a hurricane. It was a tropical storm. The reason why it was so devastating was because people didn’t build dams and such to prevent water from destroying their homes.

    • NoMoreGore says:

      Agreed. I suspect Katrina doesn’t belong on the list at all. Based on previous behavior, it’s reasonably likely Katrina’s numbers had a little help.

    • papiertigre says:

      Katrina wasn’t a hurricane? Irene was a tropical storm when it made landfall in NC.
      Maybe that’s what you meant? Because the other way, that’s just crazy talk. Katrina was a hurricane when it crossed Key West. There were 120 mph winds recorded as it landed in Slidell.

  6. Shooter says:

    Anyone else find it weird that Emmanuel says that alarmist claims are BS, yet the journalists twist his words and says he does? No wait, he did that…

  7. dmmcmah says:

    Hey look at this – ad in Craigslist hiring people to “fight climate change deniers”. Funny they are hiring people to spread “climate change” propaganda while making the accusation that “deniers” get outside funding.

    “Climate change deniers have powerful financial backers, overriding the lack of scientific proof. The Koch brothers billionaires have sunk nearly 25 million dollars into groups that attack climate change. They use their immense wealth to advocate for false science and their own financial gain.

    We do not have their money, but we are activating people who are ready to stand up for future generations.”

  8. Here is an example of the strategy in play:

    “Yesterday’s Daily Telegraph reported that Tim Flannery and the Climate Commissions’s Professor Lesley Hughes warned that mental illness and all kinds of other maladies would increase with a few extra hot days… So here’s the real news. Scientists don’t actually believe heatwaves will send us all mad. They’re just saying stuff like this because they’re desperately fumbling for new ways to grab the public’s attention. How do I know this? Because Tim Flannery himself told me (and a small room of other people) pretty much exactly that this very weekend.”

    So the scientists don’t actually believe this crap either. It’s because they need to get the public’s attention… OK…

  9. Don Gaddes says:

    Yes, and a large increase in days over 35 degrees centigrade. More ‘hockey-stick’ bullshit to counteract the BOM’s ENSO bullshit. Hopefully they will destroy each other, before the rest of us laugh ourselves silly while we freeze to death!

  10. Rogelio says:

    If the Qld government was smart they should be suing the Federal Government for allowing this guy to make predictions and then base it on official policy ie: close the dams because it aint gonna rain anymore! and then cause billions of losses and kill 14 people in Brisbane.

  11. GoodBusiness says:

    Unforgivably, we are now forced to review GRANT SCIENCE – product paid for result not pure research. NASA was kept going by the green research which was based on the faked data. They then claim to be real scientist – they say their research was PEER reviewed and accepted but they never provided the access to the base data used to construct the computer models – No that is not peer review.

    Money yields poor science that never ends as ending it would cut off the grants and monies.

    As if we’d expect anything less from them!
    Seriously, does this surprise anyone? I’d be surprised if the actually didn’t write something stupid.

    Russian heat waves predicted by Piers Corben Solar Physicist months before they happened by monitoring sun spot activity…..
    Amazing site. Worth following.
