    Well...well....top story on DRUDGE right now!!

    In 1988, Hansen predicted dire warnings about global warming getting out of control. It was a hail Mary pass based upon one heat wave.

    30 years later?

    "Using only Hansen’s own data, the above demonstrates that Hansen was not “extremely accurate” in his 1988 predictions because a simple, commonly unreliable, linear extrapolation performed better than his model in predicting the last 30 years of temperatures. One of the consequences of demonstrating the ‘Business As Usual’ linear extrapolation of past temperatures as being superior to the model used by Hansen, is that it isn’t necessary to appeal to anthropogenic influences to account for a phenomenon that started 12 millennia ago, with the end of the last major glaciation. Occam’s Razor suggests that the best explanation for something is the simplest explanation. That is, there is no compelling need to complicate the explanation with human interference."

    Bwhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    Munich Re is one of the largest re-insurance companies in the world. That graph goes to 2014, the years missing, 2015, 2016, and 2017 would continue the upward trend. Dr. Hansen predicted this long ago.
