On June 23, 1988 NASA’s James Hansen gave his famous testimony to Congress which started the global warming scam in earnest. He warned of increasing heat and drought, both of which have dropped off dramatically in the 30 years since.
Hansen and Senator Tim Wirth cherry-picked a hot day for the testimony, and then sabotaged the air conditioner.
we called the Weather Bureau and found out what historically was the hottest day of the summer. Well, it was June 6 or June 9 or whatever it was, so we scheduled the hearing that day, and bingo: It was the hottest day on record in Washington, or close to it. It was stiflingly hot that summer. [At] the same time you had this drought all across the country, so the linkage between the Hansen hearing and the drought became very intense.
… What we did it was went in the night before and opened all the windows, I will admit, right? So that the air conditioning wasn’t working inside the room and so when the, when the hearing occurred there was not only bliss, which is television cameras in double figures, but it was really hot. … So Hansen’s giving this testimony, you’ve got these television cameras back there heating up the room, and the air conditioning in the room didn’t appear to work. So it was sort of a perfect collection of events that happened that day, with the wonderful Jim Hansen, who was wiping his brow at the witness table and giving this remarkable testimony.
June 23, 1988 was one of the last really hot days the US has seen.
Hansen has no clue what he is talking about, but he and Senator Wirth did a great job picking a hot day to start their scam. This is what the US looked like on June 23 last year. Hot in the southwest, and 70 and 80 degree temperatures across most of the US.
