Hindsight used to be 20/20, wasn’t it?
Not in the case of Al Gore and his Science Advisor, James Hansen of NASA. Hindsight is unreal.
For James Hansen, and thus for you, the past keeps getting colder; and the present keeps getting hotter! History is an abstraction; a twilight zone, a dimension without temperature, surface stations, or time. A dimension of infinitely flexible hockey sticks, where the mushy puck is your mind. A dimension where toxic carbon dioxide creates heat today, frost yesterday, and confusion tomorrow, all on the same day.
A dimension where the anomaly is the correction, and the correction is the anomaly.
Here is James Hansen’s twilight zone correction factor of temperature; but wait, it is the same as James Hansen’s temperature! Beyond Outer Limits? or standard operating procedure to Al Gore, the IPCC, and the cash-sucking government of the United States.
Climatology may never remove the stain left by James Hansen. In the twilight zone, even the most obnoxious stains can smell good.
