We have 100 months to save the planet. When the clock stops ticking we could be beyond the climate's 'tipping point', the point of no return.
Or, of course, equally we may not be. Since the world's scientists have absolutely failed to show that the Earth's climate is reliant on positive feedbacks to the extent that there actually could be a "tipping point", I think that I shall call "bullshit".
Of course, I entirely endorse Nick M's view of this too.
I propose a wager with these criminal charlatans and miserable chicken lickens. If the sky hasn’t fallen within their 100 months (down to 94 now) and reached the fabled “run-away” tipping point of no return then Monbiot, Gore and Porritt and all their thieving scumbag acolytes should do the decent thing and make their own leaps of faith off Beachy Head. Seems only fair. They afterall have been asking the entire planet to make a leap of faith and pay for it ourselves. They want the world to gamble it all and I think they should be prepared to cover that bet.
James "Liar" Hansen: look at the man—he looks like some kind of comedy baddie from the X Files or something. Seriously, would you trust this cunt with your money?
None of these climate alarmists are exactly renowned for their accuracy anyway; after all, having gone to the trouble to set up this site, only a few days ago the High Priest of AGW, James "Liar" Hansen, rendered the whole fucking thing obsolete.
Being super at maths, you will have worked out that 94 months is a little under eight years—and yet, on the 18th Janary, it was reported that Hansen believed there was less than four years until we all die in a blazing fireball or something.
Barack Obama has only four years to save the world. That is the stark assessment of Nasa scientist and leading climate expert Jim Hansen who last week warned only urgent action by the new president could halt the devastating climate change that now threatens Earth. Crucially, that action will have to be taken within Obama's first administration, he added.
Only four years? Come on, guys: this is the most important issue facing mankind, is it not? On this hinges the entire existence of the human race and the health of Gaia herself!
So, is it eight years, or four? Or is it, in fact, neither of these options because the whole thing is just a colossal scam?
ADDENDUM: it was very kind of the Head of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Liar Hansen, to give the incoming President such a clear warning, eh? Obviously, far from following the recent trend of making massive cuts to NASA's budgets, President Obama really needs to throw more money at the space agency in order to probe this impending catastrophe.
If only James Hansen's old boss, Dr John S Theon, hadn't popped up and basically called his old employee a liar, a fraud and a massive gobshite and rubbished his climate models into the bargain.
Still, some years on, we can test the truth of some of Hansen's predictions and see whether he is likely to be right with his wild prognostications. What about his famous original speech to the Senate Committee, and his model-based prediction of rocketing temperatures—what he right? That's right, chaps, his predications were way off.
And now, over at the Prometheus blog, here's another Hansen's great predictions, concerning the "super El Nino": surely this one must be right?
About three years ago I made note of a prediction by NASA’s Jim Hansen that a “super El Niño” could be on the way. In Hansen’s words then:We suggest that an El Nino is likely to originate in 2006 and that there is a good chance it will be a “super El Nino”, rivaling the 1983 and 1997-1998 El Ninos, which were successively labeled the “El Nino of the century” as they were of unprecedented strength in the previous 100 years.
How did this prediction do? Well there is a little something for everyone. There was in fact a 2006-2007 El Niño event.
Ooh, ooh! looking good, James: looking good...
In the words of climatologist Mike McPhadden the event:
started late, ended early and was below average strength
So it wasn’t nearly a super El Niño, and by contrast, the tropical Pacific has been mostly in La Niña conditions since Hansen made his forecast.
Oops! That's a swing and a miss, Jimmy! A swing and a miss! So, what's Liar Hansen's next move...?
For his part, Hansen is still predicting the onset of an El Niño event that will drive global temperatures to a new record high in 2009 or 2010.
Yep: if you are found to be wrong, just shift that date forward a bit, eh, James?
"Hey, everyone: I know that I said that the world will end in four years, but I was mistaken. It'll be in eight. No, really... Wait! Where are you all going? Look, seriously guys, I mean it this time..."
James "Liar" Hansen, ladies and gentlemen: give him a big hand for being one of the biggest, most corrupt, scare-mongering sacks of shit on the last thirty years...
