On Monday, June 23, 2008, James Hansen, Director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, spoke to Congress. He warned,
"Earth's atmosphere can only stay this loaded with man-made carbon dioxide for a couple more decades without changes such as mass extinction, ecosystem collapse and dramatic sea level rises."
The address marked the twentieth anniversary of his speech before Congress to launch the claptrap about global warming. That speech was not based upon actual science and the speech was framed with stagecraft.
Senator Al Gore (D-TN) and Rep. Tim Wirth (D-CO) orchestrated Hansen’s time before Congress in 1988. For this and following information, see here and here. Wirth ". . . admitted they picked the day after calling the National Weather Service to ensure it was a hot day." It happened to be a hot day in a drought and hot spell on the east coast. Wirth ". . . admitted proudly later they opened all the windows the night before, making air conditioning ineffective and making sure all involved including Hansen would be seen mopping their brow for maximum effect."
Ministers should take a cue from the Goracle every time they preach about hell! There might be more conversions as Gore, Wirth and Hansen were hoping for 20 years ago. In truth, we would rightly condemn religious manipulation of the temperature of the setting for a sermon on hell, yet these political charlatans did not have any qualms about fakery. Gore is still at it, shamelessly acting the religious quack, pounding the pulpit about the doomsday of climate change.
These quacks are crying wolf when there is no wolf. Look at this temperature chart to see the quackery of Gore and Hansen. The average temperature is a half a degree cooler today than in 1988. The highest temperature in 1998 was only 0.4o warmer than in 1988.
People like the false prophet Hansen would sell their soul to Gore’s snake-oil cure, all the while decrying the hawking televangelists. "In 2001, the Heinz Foundation "awarded" James Hansen with a payment of $250,000 for his work on global warming."
"In 2007, Hansen split a $1 million prize from the Dan David prize category of "Future Quest for Energy" (layman’s translation: a world without oil). In addition he also reported to have acted as a consultant to Gore’s global whining slide show, which was the impetus to the Prince of Peace’s film, "An Inconvenient Truth." In fact, in 2006 Hansen had the gall to appear on a New York City stage with Mr. Gore to promote the then upcoming film-though he did reportedly inform the audience, "I’m not speaking as a government employee."
A scientist looks at the facts and does not fudge facts and evidence. A scientist does not frame inconclusive evidence to tell an inconvenient lie. A scientist’s head is not turned by money. A scientist does not sell his soul. Any scientist who does, betrays science, evidence, principle and people.
