The hot summer of 1988 was seized upon by global warming fraudsters like James Hansen and Steven Schneider, as an opportunity to begin working their scam into the public consciousness. The scamsters predicted 3-9 degrees warming by 2030 in this Chicago Tribune article.
This is the same Steven Schneider who previously explained why a runaway greenhouse effect is impossible, and why two degrees warming was highly unlikely over the next several thousand years.
In 1984 the Chicago Tribune reported a sharp cooling trend, and that Illinois temperatures were barely warmer in 1980 than they were in 1870.
The summer of 1988 was the last really hot summer in Illinois, where hot days have become a thing of the past. Ninety degree days occur less than half as often now as they did in the 1930’s.
A year later in 1989, Hansen bumped his scam forecasts up to nine degrees warming – while Tom Karl of NOAA explained that almost all observed warming occurred before 1919, and that Earth had cooled from 1921 to 1979.
In 1989, NOAA stated that there had been no warming in the US over the past century.
The 1995 IPCC report showed no global troposphere warming from 1958 to 1994.
In 1992, Mark Serreze found no evidence that Earth is suffering from the greenhouse effect.
There was no indication that Earth was warming, but by 1989 the UN had recognized that pushing global warming was a way to seize power, and said it would kill us all by the year 2000.
Globalists co-opted a few crooked scientists like Hansen and Schneider by 1988, and eventually Tom Karl and Mark Serreze went over to the dark side too.
Global warming is the biggest scam in science history. It is based on the same idea which globalists have always used.
Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.
