20 year anniversary

20 years ago James Hansen warned congress about the coming global warming catastophe due to the burning of fossil fuels by mankind. In our folly we were releasing unprecedented amounts of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere, ignorant of the consequences for our environment. James Hansen was the prophet sent to tell us of the future apocalypse and warn us to change our ways - or else.

Well, here we are, 20 years later. Where are we today? Considering that climate change hysteria is the new secular religion to which one must pledge belief or risk being mocked at any gathering of descent-minded folk, one would think that the prophecies of the founding prophet must have been amazingly accurate for global warming religion to be so triumphant today. You might want to take a look at this - then again, maybe not. You wouldn't want to be shaken out of your complacent religious beliefs by facts. Just genuflect and move along please.
