One of the articles linked in there, Argus Press, had this little gem: "But Rep. Markey, D-Mass, committee chairman, said, 'Dr. Hansen was right. Twenty years later, we recognize him as a climate prophet.'" Yes, a climate prophet. Smells just a tad religious, not scientific.
Not just a tad religious! For mine, the global warming doomsayers have been referencing passages from the Bible: Re: floods, drought, etc, all along. Next they'll be telling us it'll start raining frogs [to help stave off starvation]... and that they can part the Red Sea to reduce sea levels and ocean warming.
And what about all those prophets who predicted the world's end in 2012 and various other years before it? Did any of them ever mention it happening because of man-made global warming? No, of course not. No, it'll be by the hand of God, and he shall smite us with the sound of trumpets and turn politicians and bankers into pillars of salt.
Now for a prophesy of my own. The world will have gone into deep recession by 2020 and all the top economies will fall, thus opening the door for the lesser economies of our ape brothers and sisters, who will take over world politics, Wall St, the London Stock Exchange and worldwide manufacturing, for which the majority of mankind will be enslaved to run. As you can see, not a lot will have changed politically or in the workforce, but at least we will be thankful for the bananas,
