Throughout his career, James Hansen has demonstrated an uncanny ability to be wrong nearly 100% of the time about both the future and the past.
Dr. James E. Hansen, director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, who presented recent data compiled from computer models, said that predicted regional effects of global warming show that the chances of summer drought in the low and middle latitudes would be 1 in 3 by the year 2030, as against 1 in 20 in the 1950’s.

The 1950’s had the most persistent droughts on record, with the US in drought about 50% of the time, not 5% as Hansen claimed Since then, and particularly since Hansen’s 1988 forecast, the US has been getting and wetter and droughts have become infrequent.
Out here in the west, we are having the wettest permanent drought on record, with the rain pouring down day after day – and lots more in the forecast.
Hansen’s incompetence combined with his air of certainty and total lack of concern for the truth, makes him the perfect Democrat.
