WASHINGTONThe relentless, weather-gone-crazy type of heat that has blistered the United States and other parts of the world in recent years is so rare that it can't be anything but man-made global warming, says a new statistical analysis from a top government scientist. The research by a man often called the "godfather of global warming" says that the likelihood of such temperatures occurring from the 1950s through the 1980s was rarer than 1 in 300. Now, the odds are closer to 1 in 10, according to the study by NASA scientist James Hansen. He says that statistically what's happening is not random or normal, but pure and simple climate change.
"This is not some scientific theory. We are now experiencing scientific fact," Hansen told The Associated Press in an interview.

A similar link can be found between jalepineo’s and toilet paper.
Hansen of NASA gives the proof that he was correct on green house gases cause globalony warming:
“In a landmark 1988 study, Hansen predicted that if greenhouse gas emissions continue, which they have, Washington, D.C., would have about nine days each year of 95 degrees or warmer in the decade of the 2010s. So far this year, with about four more weeks of summer, the city has had 23 days with 95 degrees or hotter temperatures.”
It seems like a cooler summer than normal in the NYC area.
(Can I be arrested for saying that?)
Of course the climate is changing. It always has. There even was a time where there was NO oxygen (there was no CO2 then either). The climate also causes weather. Therefore, all weather can be explained by climate change......So?
When I see it's Hansen, I stop. The boy has ZERO credibilty. He's just one of Algore's two bit climate change pimps.
Gotta hand it to these nut cases, they sure are open minded scientists.
Hansen and bogus are synonymous. W should have fired this bas-—d when he had the chance.
So...Hansen was wrong, and by a rather wide margin.
Those percentages must be true.
Because it's a 2 to 1 certainty that author Seth Borenstein is a flaming environazi who left his integrity at the back door of Obama's favorite bathhouse in Chicago.
Okay, I accept that. What does this study have to say about detected warming on other planets?
More bovine excrement.
NASA....please fire this man....Oh, that's not how it works.
One man's scientific fact is another man's scientific fiction.
NASA? We still have a NASA? What for?
Ah, there lies the rub.
I didn’t hear anything about the 1956 severe drought and heatwave. Where is it in this article.....I can’t seem to find it.
Maybe it was not studied in depth simply because it was BEFORE the widespread use of air conditioners with freon and hair spray huh????? Could that be it?
Climate change my ass.....it’s simply a cycle of the earth. Remember it happened last in 1956 and there was no mention of global warming back then. As a matter of fact people said “it’s hot as hell and just as dry” and simply took it for what it was....a hot dry summer.
Now the “chicken littles” otherwise known as liberals hide under their beds, shaking in their winnie the poo pJ’s and crying “WE ARE ALL GONNA DIE UNLESS WE CONTROL GLOBAL WARMING!”
Little do they know we can’t change ANYTHING about the earth’s climate cycles.
These people will never stop trying to take over this country by any means necessary to fundamentally transform us into a socialist hellhole. We have to defeat them. This is a cold civil war to be sure.
W should have fired a lot of folks....beginning with Karl Rove as it turns out.
I’m just surprised that it took Hansen so long to claim this summer as proof of his theory.
I knew it!! Chick-Fil_a Appreciation Day caused global warming. /s
When they talk about weather records falling, I generally smile.
The other day one reporter was trying to make hay out of the highest temperature in the last fifty years.
Another-words, fifty years ago the temperature was actually higher. And you know what, we somehow survived.
I know there’s a drought going on right now. It has been terrible for some folks. That’s rotten, but the worst they can say about it is that it’s the worst since the drought of the 1930s. Weather is cyclical. In twelve years they will be complaining about the temperature falling like they did in the 1970s.
In the early 70s they were hawking the idea that we were all going to die due to overpopulation too. Somehow we survived that too.
Buck up Lefties... we’re gonna make it, unless your presidents kill us all.
I don’t even like to hear Rove’s pompous a$$ voice.
Hansen is damaged goods. A Watermelon.
It’s been hotter and dryer than this in the past, and it will be hotter and dryer than this in the future. That’s my scientific theory on the subject.
NASA recently called CO2 one of the greatest coolants for its deflection of energy from solar flares. So, I have to wonder, could the lower levels of CO2 caused by closing coal plants and using less fossil fuels be the cause of this heat and dryness resulting from increased solar activity.
We’ve had cooler than average temperatures resulting from low solar activity, and we all knew the warming kooks would pounce on this high solar activity as an opportunity for demagoguery. In fact, it was predicted by many, making it a fact, not theory.

they couldnt predict their own bankruptcy but were predicting the climate 100 years ahead.
Me either anymore. As it turns out, Rove was behind a lot of the bad advice that W got over the years. Like never fighting back against the lies and smears. That drove me crazy for 8 years! Never understood it. That was Rove’s job to fight back! I can see the President not getting in the muck..but Rove and W ‘s surrogates sure as hell should have. They did little to nothing.
The more science you know, the less worried you are about climate
Thus, in a just-published US National Science Foundation-funded study, participants’ science knowledge and numeracy was tested and compared with levels of concern regarding climate change. The soft-studies profs were amazed, however, to find that as one moves up the scale of science knowledge and numeracy, people become more sceptical, not less.
Our goobermints answer to this will to be:
Deny grants, loans or scholarships for hard sciences students and increase those for journalism majors. (gotta have them to spread the BS from the “studies” put out by the race baiters ,”queer studies” majors, womens studies students, and “environmental justice” majors.)
Searching...searching...searching.........Got it print it hope they believe it hope it sticks then we can set up camp and siphon money from them. They don’t give up
One clue is that the bubbles would have ALL melted, ALL over, not just two facing one direction.
I believe that Rove was behind the fact that W never used his veto pen during his first term—he should have used it, the stupid Republicans were spending money like drunken Democrats. This was the primary reason the Democrats took control of the House and Senate in the 2006 elections.
