Skip to comments.New study links current events to climate change

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.
