to this nauseating 1988 presentation.
Note how wrong he is and how a few lies are easily exposed.
He was already a alarmist nut back then and now he 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.
–William O. Douglas, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1952
Match that to what is claimed now about what he meant. I have discussions with people claiming B was the proper scenerio or that the model used actual initial conditions rather than estimated conditions. I was not able to locate a statement from a person who claimed to assist in orchestrating the summer event because the one in November 1987 did not impress those present. Somewhere in the national archives there is a digital copy of this which I have seen but am not able to locate now.
It was stunts like this one that allowed GISS to maintain a contract with NASA because the original contract was for studying the atmosphere on other planets. The decision to cancel the exploration of other planets put an end to GISS having a contract with NASA but also reduced the funding from the government for NASA. With a new Enemy (CO2) GISS and NASA were needed to investigate. The Thing with Theon recently wnere he made claims about Hansen being a loose cannon even then. That was a CYA for his role in allowing Hansen to agitate for additional funding. The other who agitated for funding investigating a fabricated problem was Revelle who basically made the Scripps institute what it is today by hounding government agencies for funding.
Science became a business of creative grant seeking. Michael Mann became a pro at it!
Interesting. The IPCC was established in 1988. Coincidence, or what?
Neither the report nor the IPCC could have been put together in less than a year or so. The IPCC is a UN organisation and the Hansen report went to the US Senate. Makes you think!
Environmentalism is based on lies and the lies reflect an agenda that regards humanity as the enemy of the Earth.
