NASA Scientist Lies About His Faulty Climate Predictions

Published by at 1:40 pm under All General Discussions,Global Warming

NASA “Scientists”, media whore and alarmist Hansen is out again screaming “the sky is falling” because of Global Warming, and more importantly crowing about his prediction 20 years ago – which never came true! Here is Hansen discussing everything about the Church of Al Gore – except the fact the IPCC predictions from 18 years ago never became reality:

On June 23, 1988, I testified to a hearing chaired by Senator Tim Wirth of Colorado that the Earth had entered a long-term warming trend, and that human-made greenhouse gases almost surely were responsible. I noted that global warming enhanced both extremes of the water cycle, meaning stronger droughts and forest fires, on the one hand, but also heavier rains and floods.

My testimony two decades ago was greeted with skepticism. But while skepticism is the lifeblood of science, it can confuse the public. As scientists examine a topic from all perspectives, it may appear that nothing is known with confidence. But from such broad open-minded study of all data, valid conclusions can be drawn.

Very true.  So let’s go to the data and the predictions.  In 1990, primarily because Hansen screamed ‘fire’ based on what was later found to be faulty data and his inability to use statistical models correctly, the UN-formed IPCC came out with their dire predictions of future disaster:

Based on current models, we predict: under [BAU] increase of global mean temperature during the [21st] century of about 0.3 oC per decade (with an uncertainty range of 0.2 to 0.5 oC per decade); this is greater than that seen over the past 10,000 years; under other … scenarios which assume progressively increasing levels of controls, rates of increase in global mean temperature of about 0.2 oC [to] about 0.1 oC per decade.

Two decades later, if these folks were even close to being right, that would result in a 0.6° C increase since 1988-90 (within a range of 0.4°-1.0° C).  Back in 1988, according to NASA and NOAA, the average global temperature was about same as it is today.  Looking at the chart below we see the global temp is about 0.2° C higher from two decades ago, which per the IPCC own predictions is statistically the same level (click to navigate to original site).

Hansen and his cultists were clear and resolute – we were going to destroy our planet if we did not control CO2 output. We did not control CO2 output and the temperature did not change as the promised. And they did promise this, with error bars for the estimation. But Hansen and the IPCC was proven wrong. If we look at the hard data, as Hansen says we should, the facts are his results were wrong, his methodology was wrong, his predictions were wrong. How many ways can Hansen screw up? Well, he’s out repeating all his wrongs as if he was right the entire time. Is that mean he is now wrong exponentially?

Whatever, the man cries fire and nothing happens. That is all we need to know,

    Anthony Watts has an interesting graph in his site showing that it is now colder than it was when Hansen made his initial testimony.

    Why are American taxpayers’ dollars being wasted on a political tool in a science position?

    Come, come AJ … we don’t need no stinkin’ facts. Any enlightened post-modernist “knows” that reality is a social construct and therefore whatever we wish it to be.

    <SarcasmOn>And any caring, concerned person “knows” that humanity is a cancer on the sacred surface of Gaia – besides, it is unjust that some are more privileged than others. Since we can’t lift everyone to the lifestyle of greedy white westerners, the only fair alternative is to level us all back to the pristine aboriginal condition, where we all share a limited lifespan and a mean existence, at the mercy of nature and the beasts, befitting our proper place in the scheme of things. If we have to lie to achieve this noble goal, then we are doing God’s (or Gaia’s) work.<SarcasmOff>

    One more time. I was on the Board of Directors of a national “Environmental” Organization when this scheme was dreamed up by the “I can bullshit anybody about anything ” (direct quote from one of the leaders) crowd. After their Communist revolution of the 60′s, using blacks stirred up by civil rights agitators, as their vanguard troops, failed, they fell back and regrouped and came up with “The Environment” as the cause under which they could muster the most people, because everyone had some big nasty thing in their area that they didn’t like back in 1975. They hired canvasers, mostly college students, to go door to door all over the country to find out what people were most concerned about. People were sorted out via computer into groups, envirnomental, animal rights, child abuse, etc. They were then invited to Local, State Regional and national meetings, conferences, workshops, etc, where they could “network with others with like concerns” and receive instructions on how to influence elected and appointed officials , and get assistance in organizing local grass roots organizations which would then be afflilaited with one of the National dissident groups. These groups were called upon frequently to take part in some national protests by holding a press conference, demonstration or other “action.” Thus they were trained to turn out in force to support each other’s causes.

    When I discovered that my national group’s real mission was “to unite all dissident groups and empower them to overthrow the government” I resigned, or was kicked off the board for being a racist, after being tried a a real kangaroo court, I went to the FBI where I was told that the list of national leaders of all the dissident organizations I gave them looked like a Who’s Who of the radical extremists from the 60′s Peace and Civil Rights movements.

    How did I get roped into being a part of such an organization? I was president of a local grass roots group with over 6,000 members. Our big nasty? A commercial hazzardous Waste landfill which sat directly over the aquifer that provided our drinking water. Everybody in our county signed membership cards to join our organization. There were three of us on the board who headed big local groups and were not aware of the true purpose of the national organization. The reason we were named to the board is because they needed to count our memebership numbers to qualify for grants.

    Long story short. I can safely say that global warming started out as a scheme to unite people to support their communist revolution. But it has turned into a money making scheme where the leaders make big salaries paid paid by grants from government agencies and private foundations. And the government is going socialist without their revolution.

    Here’s an interesting article on the subject. Money quote:

    One clue we can see is that NASA has been reworking recent temperatures upwards and older temperatures downwards – which creates a greater slope and the appearance of warming. Canadian statistician Steve McIntyre has been tracking the changes closely on his Climate Audit site, and reports that NASA is Rewriting History, Time and Time Again. The recent changes can be seen by comparing the NASA 1999 and 2007 US temperature graphs

    A little later:

    The pre-1970 temperatures have been nearly uniformly adjusted downwards (red below green) – and the post 1970 temperatures have been adjusted upwards (red above green.) Some of the yearly temperatures have been adjusted by as much as 0.5 degrees. That is a huge total change for a country the size of the US with thousands of separate temperature records.
