NASA’s James Hansen gets dissed by global warming establishment!

hansen eco vandalFormer Top NASA Scientist James Hansen Predicts Catastrophic Rise In Sea Levels – ‘Projects sea levels rising as much as 10 feet in the next 50 years.’ – The paper has already ruffled some, including Associated Press science writer Seth Borenstein, who said on Twitter that he would not cover it — primarily because it had not yet been peer-reviewed, a process that allows other scientists to critique the work. The Washington Post’s Chris Mooney asked other climate experts to weigh in on the paper. While many said it raised key discussion points, Kevin Trenberth of the National Center for Atmospheric Research called it “provocative and intriguing but rife with speculation and ‘what if’ scenarios.”

Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot and producer of the upcoming film ‘Climate Hustle’ (www.ClimateHustle.com):

Morano: “James Hansen’s new paper ratcheting up future sea level rise numbers is consistent with the new strategy of the global warming activists. Given that current sea level rise rates are not alarming, the only way climate activists can claim anything is ‘worse than we thought’ is to make more dire predictions of the future.

Simply making scarier predictions of the future in order to alarm policymakers is not ‘good science.’ Claiming that climate change impacts are ‘worse than we thought’ because predictions are now more frightening is a well worn playbook of the climate movement.

Simply put, when current reality fails to alarm, make scarier and scarier predictions of the distant future.

It is not surprising that James Hansen — a man who has been arrested nearly half a dozen times protesting ‘global warming’ and who has endorsed a book calling for ridding the world of industrial civilization — would continue to make scary predictions. The world needs to take a collective yawn at Hansen’s latest claims and ask how in the world was this man ever allowed to be in charge of the NASA temperature datasets!” – End Morano statement.

Global Warming Establishment severs ties with Hansen on sea level rise scare study:

Warmist publication Mashable on James Hansen’s new sea level scare paper: “..red flag..study’s conclusions so contradict [UN IPCC] consensus views expressed last year.”

Mashable’s Andrew Freedman: ‘The godfather of global warming’s scary sea level rise prediction is getting the cold shoulder.”

NYT’s Andrew Revkin on Hansen’s sea level scare paper: “Associated Press, The New York Times, the BBC and The Guardian..among those who steered clear of [Hansen] study”

NYT: UN IPCC Lead Author Kevin Trenberth on Hansen sea level rise paper: “Rife with speculation..many conjectures & huge extrapolation based on quite flimsy evidence.”

Michael Mann admits Hansen’s SLR estimates “prone to a very large “extrapolation error”

Scientists: Hansen’s wild sea level rise claims are hardly new. We’ve debunked them before here: Current Wisdom: Hansen’s Extreme Sea Level Rise Projections Drowning…

New scientific findings undermine James Hansen’s extreme sea level rise projections from human-caused climate change.

Hansen’s “scientific” paper prescribes global political policy of “near-global” “carbon fee or tax”

Warming leads to Cooling: Sea level rise could lead to a cooler, stormier world — Says unpublished work from NASA’s Jim Hansen – ‘A catastrophic rise in sea level before the end of the century could have a hitherto-unforeseen side effect. Melting icebergs might cool the seas around Greenland and Antarctica so much that the average surface temperature of the entire planet falls by a few degrees’

    [i]”It is not surprising that James Hansen — a man who has been arrested nearly half a dozen times protesting ‘global warming’ and who has endorsed a book calling for ridding the world of industrial civilization — would continue to make scary predictions. The world needs to take a collective yawn at Hansen’s latest claims and ask how in the world was this man ever allowed to be in charge of the NASA temperature datasets![/i]

    Proving that yet another “political” scientist has his priorities backwards. He begins with the premise that the world must be rid of industrial civilization (eco-Marxism), [i]and then[/i] sets forth to jigger the data and make scientific claims…

    Hansen ‘s track record speaks for itself . Elmer Fudd would now be more credible .

    I appreciate NASA scientists for launching the satellite Kepler. The satellite has found the new earth, named Kepler 452 B, which is revolving around another sun. The average day it takes to complete one revolution is 385 days and it is looking similar to earth with the possibility to live. But, humans cannot reach there as it is situated approximately 1400 light years far. [url=http://www.writeversity.com]Get more here[/url].

      Yeah, artist renditions of what it may look like and stuff, they just got a decent look at pluto and were surprised by what they found, and how far away is that again?

    Hansen types need to live in caves ,use no fossil fuel based products and eat nothing but vegetables they grow to demonstrate they are not hypocrites and to leave more for the rest of us carbon dioxide spewing critters .

    What about other low hanging fruit ?
    Should jogging be band to reduce humans carbon footprint ?

    Another goofy prediction of 50 years out . Well at least their learning to not make projections that they will be held accountable for like the ice free Arctic debacle repeated by AL Gore .

    Who funds Hanson now anyone ? Is this stuff coming from a peer review study ? Nah thought not . I predict
    Hanson will not be around in 50 years. Of course an extrapolation after a few years is easy so he can’t punt his scary scenario down the road too far .
    It ‘s all about getting attention … that’s my hypothesis ,not peer reviewed of course .
