Seriously? You are going to try to pass HANSON off as VALIDATION? If this is what passes for validation among climate "scientists" than the entire field is a ****ing joke. Hanson was thoroughly and unequivocally wrong in his predictions. I often use him as an example to prove MY point.
I love how your "reader's digest" version of the facts blatantly lies about CO2 levels to try to make him less wrong. The fact is, our CO2 levels rose MORE than even his most dire scenario was set up for. (This depends on where you get your numbers but it varies from marginally above to significantly above) That scenario predicted a 1 degree Celsius change in temperature. REALITY= less than HALF that.
I find it frankly amazing that anyone would ever try to pass Hanson off as validation when anyone with a clear objective view can see it is nothing of the sort.
