Climate will continue to be variable and there is still a significant chance of a season being cooler than the long-term average.[Laughable quotes about James Hansen]
‘Fig. 5 also reveals that the 1930s heat was exceptional. It was not until 2012 that the 1936 extreme temperature was exceeded by a significant amount.”
Dr. James Hansen is Paul Revere to the foreboding tyranny of climate chaos—a modern-day hero who has braved criticism and censure and put his career and fortune at stake to issue the call to arms against the apocalyptic forces of ignorance and greed.

When the history of the climate crisis is written, Hansen will be seen as the scientist with the most powerful and consistent voice calling for intelligent action to preserve our planet's environment.

Jim Hansen is the planet's great hero. He offered us the warning we needed twenty years ago, and has worked with enormous courage ever since to try and make sure we heeded it. We'll know before long if that effort bears fruit—if it does, literally no one deserves more credit than Dr. Hansen.
