COFFIN NAILED SHUT ON CLIMATE DEBATE
You would never argue that smoking is good for you, because everyone knows someone who has died early from smoking. It’s right outside our door. It’s hardly a theory. Now NASA scientist James Hansen has published a study proving that the planet is too hot, and it’s not a theory. Hansen has continuously made accurate predictions about droughts, extreme weather, Arctic melting and climate science for 30 years. This illustration from his study makes it very real.
Hansen says that: “Our analysis shows… a stunning increase in the frequency of extremely hot summers, with deeply troubling ramifications…for the extreme hot weather of the recent past, there is virtually no explanation other than climate change…When I testified before the Senate in the hot summer of 1988…I painted a grim picture (and still) I was too optimistic.”
