After he secretly arranged to have the air conditioning in the building disabled in order to lend credence to his blatant lies.
and declared the unvarnished, undeniable scientific truth: “The greenhouse effect has been detected,” James Hansen said. “And it is changing our climate now.” The year was 1988. Global temperatures were about 0.6 degrees Celsius (1.1 degrees Fahrenheit) above the preindustrial average.
No, that was a lie. The real "pre-industrial" average -- i.e., the average temperature of the earth for at least the last several hundred million years -- was in fact at least several degrees higher than the temperature in 1988. What Hansen and the other anti-fossil-fuel hysteria mongers incorrectly and deceitfully call the "pre-industrial" average was actually the temperature at the end of the coldest 500-year period in the last 10,000 years
. By dishonestly choosing that cold period as their basis for comparison, and falsely and dishonestly calling it the "pre-industrial" average when it is in fact only the Little Ice Age average, they falsely and dishonestly make it seem like the world has warmed beyond the limits of natural variation when it indisputably has not.
It was, at the time, the hottest 12-month period scientists had ever seen.
After they falsified the temperature records of the 1930s to make them cooler. However, temperatures plunged immediately afterwards, in September 1988, putting the lie to Hansen's claims.
None of us will ever experience a year that cool again.
2008 was that cool or cooler.
In 2021, global temperatures were between 1.1 and 1.2 degrees Celsius (2.2 degrees Fahrenheit) above the preindustrial average, according to new data from NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Berkeley Earth.
Again, calling the temperature at the end of the coldest 500-year period in the last 10,000 years the "pre-industrial" average is a bald lie designed to divert attention from all the natural factors that affect climate, and pretend that only increasing CO2 emissions from industrial civilization have affected climate in the last 200 years.
All of the seven hottest years on record have happened in the last seven years.
No, that is false. 1998 was hotter than 2017, 2018 and 2021.
The new global temperature data sets, which come from three of the world’s top climate research institutions, are packed with alarming signs of a world in crisis."
Because they have been systematically falsified to create that impression. In reality, anyone can look out their window and confirm that those who claim there is some sort of climate "crisis" or "emergency" are simply lying. This is not disputable, and any claim to the contrary is self-evidently just gaslighting.
