On March 29, 1986 almost the entire country was over 70 degrees, with temperatures above 100 degrees in California. CO2 was below 350 PPM. The only other years with similar warmth on March 29 were 1910, 1946 and 1968.
A few weeks later, NASA’s James Hansen was ramping up his global warming insanity, spreading wild mispredictions and flat out lies.

Hansen predicted the DC area would see a huge increase in the number of 90 and 100 degree days. The exact opposite has occurred. The frequency of both 90 and 100 degree days in the rural DC area has been plummeting for 85 years.
Hansen predicted a large increase in the number of nights above 80F. Rural DC hasn’t had such a night for 20 years.
Hansen predicted nine degrees rise in US temperatures by 2020. Afternoon temperatures in the US have been plummeting for a century.
Hansen said the evidence of a warming trend was overwhelming. Three years later Tom Karl directly contradicted him, and said almost all warming occurred before 1919.

In 1989, NOAA also said that the US was not warming.
U.S. Data Since 1895 Fail To Show Warming Trend
In 1992, Mark Serreze said there was no evidence of global warming.
The 1995 IPCC report showed no evidence of troposphere warming.
The 1986 article said half of sea level rise was due to global warming, but Hansen 1982 showed sea level rise slowed greatly after 1950, when atmospheric CO2 was 310 PPM
Hansen’s final prediction was a total 3-5 degrees US warming by the 2010s. Obviously that hasn’t happened. The global warming scam is being pushed by crooks, liars, witch doctors and frauds, and has been since the day it began.
Nine degrees by the 2020’s? So nine degrees in 3 years? Time to dump all remaining stations and start “infilling” immediately. Oh, and better ground all those pesky skeptical satellites.
Come on gator …. aren’t you scared by just a little bit. Almost 30 years of scary stories, each story scarier than the last scary story have ladies like Griff shitting themselves silly with fear of the falling sky!
I’m trying to figure out how it is always “worse than we thought”, when we still have nine degrees to go, 30 years later. I would be scared, if I was a poor brown person.
The fake temperature readings from Reagan National Airport show a dramatic rise in 80+ degrees minimum temperatures during summer. My non-fake thermometer has never has a low temperature above 77.
Using the averages of Hansen’s testimony to Congress, this is what you get…
Hansen’s sea level forecast related to San Francisco actual…
Yet every new 2m rise prediction is met with horror and calls for world genocide. Is it impossible for Congress to make a chart like this (took about 5 min)?
Here’s a You Tube with the same idea:
Sea Level Projections vs Tide Gauge Data
What a scam! Your site I mean.
Oh brother, no counterpoint to the blog post, Oh my!
What exactly is being scammed here Ms O’Brother?
And who is asking you to spend trillions?
Ahhh.. the usual, pointless, irrelevant, blah of a troll infant.
Yes, we evil deniers are all controlled hand and glove and are on the payroll of the Koch Brothers and the greedy fossil fuel industry (we should be that lucky!).
How do I know? Because Dr. Mann says it’s so and according to Dr. Mann, Dr. Mann is ALWAYS right and can NEVER be wrong about anything!
What toad, your life I mean.
