Blame blistering heat waves on global warming, study says

By The Associated Press and NBC News staff
  • The relentless, weather-gone-crazy type of heat that has blistered the United States and other parts of the world in recent years is so rare that it can't be anything but man-made global warming, says a new statistical analysis from a top government scientist.

    The research by a man often called the "godfather of global warming" says that the likelihood of such temperatures occurring from the 1950s through the 1980s was rarer than 1 in 300. Now, the odds are closer to 1 in 10, according to the study by NASA scientist James Hansen. He says that statistically what's happening is not random or normal, but pure and simple climate change.

    "This is not some scientific theory. We are now experiencing scientific fact," Hansen told The Associated Press in an interview.

We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”.J Robert Oppenheimer.

LOL,

as usual Hansen is full of shit because it is easily shown to be just another weather event that has happened many times before and some far hotter and drier than these few below:

Hansen Uses 30 Year Cherry Picked Time Period To Prove That Climate Is The Most Extreme In 10,000 Years

Hansen Is Defiling US History

US Temperatures Plummeted From 1930 To 1979


The Four Stages Of Hansenization

I could go on and on from just this one website I have been linking to and there are other websites that show what a jerk Hansen is.
It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.
