Another Massively Failed Forecast By James Hansen

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.

    Tony, as a programmer did you ever study his SW.
    I am not a Fortran guru but the code looks very funny. He wanted to cover so much with so little CPU, volumes of unknowns or guesses and static parameters representing the world. It is fun reading. Also his report prior to the testimony is fun.
    Have you commented on that earlier and can provide a link. If not you should for the pure fun

    Just got back yesterday from a two week great American road trip to the Black Hills, Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons.

    We saw piles of hale a foot or more deep in the Black Hills July 17th and we had some rain in the Tetons on the 25th and 26th. It looked like there were storms to the south of us most of the time we were out west. But other than that gorgeous weather for us tourists. Fourth time I’ve been to Yellowstone & Old Faithful 1953, 1988, 2004 & 2018,

      I did a similar trip in April, entering Yellowstone North Entrance on the 2nd day it was open. 4″ of new snow that morning, on us and the Buffalo in the road. Old Faithfull erupting while snowing was special.

      A great trip.
