People had an excuse for believing James Hansen’s BS this week in 1988. Temperatures were very hot and the Mississippi River nearly dried up. Almost the entire country was above 90 degrees. But 1988 was an outlier – summer temperatures have been declining in the US for a century.
People didn’t know what was causing the drought, and snake oil salesman James Hansen offered them a cure. All they had to do was give up their modern lifestyle and submit to global governance.
Thirty years later, the only excuse people have for believing Hansen’s nonsense, is ignorance.
