    Meanwhile, back in the real world:

    It really is amazing (to me anyway…) how the warmunist scammers have convinced large segments of the world population that mild warming along with enhancement to the biosphere due to CO2 enrichment are problems. That we can do anything about the non-problem of warming is also a novel, psychotically delusional, idea.

      Yes Dr R0y’s graph is interesting, however he is highlighting the Feb figure for 2018 and not the Feb Figure for any other year for comparison.
      However the majority of the energy goes into the oceans and melting the ice which the Troposphere does not capture, however with his measurements he can also capture the stratosphere and that is cooling as predicted by the theory and models which he has not highlighted.
      The trend tells the story

    Hansen is looking more and more like jelly, not toast.

  3. Jim Zuccaro says:

    I love it.

    But the Camping reference is probably over the heads of non-Americans…

  4. John F. Hultquist says:

    David Wallace-Wells is a first order nut case.
    I wonder how much they paid him for making this stuff up?

  5. Ralph says:

    Are all climate alarmist as neurotic as James Hansen?

  6. Mark Fife says:

    Personally, I am pretty happy to be living during warm times which are generally far more conducive to health and prosperity than cold times. Even better to be living in warm times with sufficient CO2 for plants to prosper.

    Imagine living in a time of long, harsh winters and poor crop yields. Times when death by starvation and disease become more common.

    But hey, that’s just me.

    Explan “Harold Camping” please.

    So climate change is going to cause the sun to cook us. I wonder how that works?

    Harold Egbert Camping (July 19, 1921 – December 15, 2013) was an American Christian radio broadcaster, author and evangelist. Beginning in 1958, he served as president of Family Radio, a California-based radio station group that broadcasts to more than 150 markets in the United States. In October 2011, he retired from active broadcasting following a stroke, but still maintained a role at Family Radio until his death. Camping is notable for issuing multiple failed predictions of dates for the End Times, which temporarily gained him a global following and millions of dollars of donations

    Camping’s teachings regarding the timing of Christ’s second coming were based on the cycles of:

    Jewish feast days in the Hebrew calendar, as described in the Old Testament,
    the lunar month calendar (1 synodic month = 29.53059 days), and
    a close approximation of the Gregorian calendar tropical year (365.24219 days, rounded to 365.2422).

    He projected these cycles into modern times and combined the results with other information in the Bible.

    Camping’s date for the crucifixion of Christ – Friday, April 1, AD 33 (Gregorian) – is nominally the same day as one of those supported by other twentieth-century commentators: Friday, April 3, AD 33 (Julian).[48] However, the dates differ because Camping used the Gregorian calendar, while most commentators use the older Julian calendar, which had a two-day difference during the 1st century AD (they now differ by thirteen days).

    In 1992, Camping published a book titled 1994?, in which he proclaimed that Christ’s return might be on September 6, 1994. In that publication, he also mentioned that 2011 could be the end of the world. Camping’s predictions use 1988 as a significant year in the events preceding the apocalypse; this was also the year he left Alameda Bible Fellowship. As a result, some individuals criticized him for “date-setting.” Camping’s later publications, We are Almost There! and To God be The Glory, referred to additional Bible passages which, in his opinion, pointed to May 21, 2011, as the date for the Rapture and October 21, 2011, as the date for the end of the world.
