Hansen’s ex-boss: He’s an embarrassment

Via Doug Ross @ Journal Global warming alarmist James Hansen has “embarrassed NASA” according to his former boss

Retired senior NASA atmospheric scientist, Dr. John S. Theon, the former supervisor of James Hansen, NASA’s vocal man-made global warming fear soothsayer, has now publicly declared himself a skeptic and declared that Hansen “embarrassed NASA” with his alarming climate claims and said Hansen was “was never muzzled.”

…”I appreciate the opportunity to add my name to those who disagree that global warming is man made,” Theon wrote to the… Committee on January 15, 2009. “I was, in effect, Hansen’s supervisor because I had to justify his funding, allocate his resources, and evaluate his results,” Theon, the former Chief of the Climate Processes Research Program at NASA Headquarters…

“Hansen was never muzzled even though he violated NASA’s official agency position on climate forecasting (i.e., we did not know enough to forecast climate change or mankind’s effect on it). Hansen thus embarrassed NASA by coming out with his claims of global warming in 1988 in his testimony before Congress,” Theon wrote…

Hansen has maintained erroneous projections of global warming since 1988; advocated criminal penalties against his critics; and recently proposed a government wealth redistribution scheme leveraging his false prognostications (AGW) as a weapon against capitalism and free markets.

Time is running out for this leftist apparatchik and bogus computer whisperer.


Earth Climate Update – Brrrr!

Speechless in Dubai

Speechless in Dubai

It is understandable that Emirate citizens lack a word for snow. After all, the vast majority of them have never seen it. On Thursday, they saw and touched 4 to 8 inches of it, most for the first time.

Useful information from NOAA and NASA and other no-expense-can-be-spared government science projects, regarding the climate of Earth, is presently not available. To assess Earth’s climate for the forseeable future, anecdotal information only can be trusted. Since the climate of Earth has turned cold, there is no shortage of anecdotal information. Ice Age Now!

On the other hand, we do have some useful scientific data on the Sun’s climate (although solar climate anecdote is scarce). Could the onslaught of Earthly anecdotal information, which comes because people are COLD, be related?

Sun Toys With Earth’s Climate

David Hathaway and James Hansen didn’t predict any cycle 23 spots for today! Hello (a pun in there).

David Hathaway and James Hansen predicted instead global temperatures today would be a about a degree

You saw it here first

You saw it here first

Celsius warmer than they are right now. Thank you, esteemed doctors. Do any of your patients survive?

Now is the time to consider your own personal survival plan, with government, and certifiable “doctors” stomping the life out of the entire energy supply – all of it.

Hmmm; Cycle 23, or Cycle 24?

Hmmm; Cycle 23, or Cycle 24?

Here is the story: Solar Cycle 23 not done yet

Al Gore Cuts CO2 Emissions

Needless CO2 emissions terminated

H/T: Dead of Moonbattery

Hope your Mum has an extra $30K laying around when Al Gore shows up at her door. If that’s her last cash, Al Gore won’t mind. He is saving the planet from its only scourge; which Gore considers to be humanity.

Goodbye, Dorothy Hacking.

Collectivist Fabrication: AGW

H/T: Gore Lied Dumb and Dumber

In the estimation of Bobby Kennedy, free markets are to be abhored as elements of an economic system. Bobby abhorred free markets before AGW was ever a tingle in Al Gore’s thigh; and so did Al Gore.

There is only one solution to AGW. It is the same old solution. It was the easy solution to every problem before AGW, and it will be the easy solution to every problem when AGW is gone. It is the only solution halfwitted moonbat Bobby knows or will ever know. It is the universal solution for every problem; the wrench that fits all fasteners. Bobby is not familiar with the history of previous efforts to implement his solution; nor does he care to be. Bobby thinks history is not progressive, I would venture. The easy solution is all that matters, whatever, whenever, or why ever the problem. Whatever ills Bobby’s one trick solution has caused humanity over history, including 100s of millions of human deaths, should not distract Bobby from his delusion.

Bobby’s magic solution is central bureaucratic control of not just all energy, as he demonstrates in the video below! It is the central control of all wealth, all “capital,” all chattels, all real property, called generously “collectivism.” Wealth or assets must be controlled by central planners; not capitalists competing in free markets, not citizens, not corporations, not free economies. Only central planners will do. Otherwise Earth will perish in 5-4-3-2-1 years. Humans have no right to control wealth; only the collective does.

We have an emergency, a catastrophe, a cataclysm completely fabricated by failed collectivist fear mongers to leverage finally their backward ideology – which ideology fails disasterously whenever or wherever it it is tried, and fails at a horrific mortal human cost.

AGW was manufactured by collectivists and is propounded today for one overwhelming purpose. AGW is the ultimate wedge “issue” to finally unseat and remove capitalism forever from human economic endeavor. No factual evidence of AGW has ever been presented. No convincing argument against capitalism is offered, either. Data, evidence, facts mean nothing. Collectivism feels good to half-witted moonbats like Bobby Kennedy and Al Gore, no matter how many humans it always starves or destroys. Capitalism and free markets do not feel good to simpletons like Bobby Kennedy.

These fools are actually proud of their delusions and distortions! Village idiots Bobby, James Hansen, and Mike Papantonio, foolishly plot the final abandonment of the greatest, most successful economic system ever devised; under the disingenous guise of fixing the imaginary cataclysm called AGW, a cataclysm fabricated by them.

Capitalism alone resulted in the greatest culture and the greatest society the world has ever seen. AGW is a fabrication and an excuse to replace capitalism with the most devastating failure of a system the world has ever seen; perhaps permanently. Enjoy the video.

Oceanic Uptake of Atmospheric CO2?

Has oceanic uptake of CO2 become a significant factor?

Has oceanic uptake of CO2 become a significant factor?

Yearly data update is now available on Mauna Loa carbon dioxide atmospheric content in Mauna Loa CO2 record posts smallest yearly gain in its history – maybe at Watt’s Up With That?

What we see is the smallest increase in carbon dioxide atmospheric content, apparently, in the history of this observation.

There is a little concern that the data may not be “final” for a few months.

We know the ocean is cooling from the nearly unmentionable Argo float data. The oceanic uptake should be a very significant factor in the atmospheric observation. Reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will not help humans, however, or human food either. Maybe more carbon dioxide in the ocean will increase the supply of seafood. If the Earth does get colder, as it shows every indication of doing, we will need more food from somewhere. Acidity will be the next complaint we hear, I think some such comment is coming in now . . .

Steady Growth, Polar Ice

Steady increase in Antarctic ice extent

Steady increase in Antarctic ice extent

Reported by Steven Goddard Polar Sea Ice Changes are Having a Net Cooling Effect on the Climate at Watts Up With That.

. . . We all have heard many times that summer sea ice minimums have declined in the northern hemisphere over the last 30 years. As mentioned above, this causes more sunlight to reach the dark ocean water, and results in a warming of the water. What is not so widely discussed is that southern hemisphere sea ice has been increasing, causing a net cooling effect. This article explains why the cooling effect of excess Antarctic ice is significantly greater than the warming effect of missing Arctic ice.
Over the last 30 years Antarctic sea ice has been steadily increasing, as shown below (article continues).

I would only amplify strongly that Arctic sea ice has been increasing for the last two years; so heat transfer into the arctic ocean is also decreasing year over year.

Overall albedo of Earth is up by what I consider is a large factor, reported in Earthshine Draft Report – Albedo. It certainly looks like we are in store for continued cooling, particular with the turn-over in the Pacific cited often by J.S. D’Aleo writing at ICECAP (and many other writers).
