In August of 2000, James Hansen co-authored a study on global warming as projected into the coming decades.
The study, entitled Global warming in the twenty-first century: An alternative scenario , pointed out that “rapid warming in recent decades has been driven mainly by non-CO2 greenhouse gases . . . not by the products of fossil fuel burning, CO2 and aerosols.”
After conducting the study, Hansen concluded that it was not man-made CO2 that was causing global warming.
However, Hansen still pushes that the method of controlling emission output should “focus on air pollution has practical benefits that unite the interests of developed and developing countries. However, assessment of ongoing and future climate change requires composition-specific long-term global monitoring of aerosol properties.”
The consensus, Hansen claims is that “the warming is at least in part a consequence of increasing anthropogenic greenhouse gases (GHGs)”, yet without evidence supporting that global warming is caused by man, the assertion is purely conjecture.
In April of this year, Hansen gave a lecture where he argued that future generations would be challenged by climate change and these effects could be mitigated by “a flat-rate global tax is needed to force immediate cuts in fossil fuel use.”
In the study, Hansen cites the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a UN environmental agency, as authority. The Special Report on Emissions Scenarios and their attention to GHGs.
Although the climate change computer models used by the ICPP and Hansen are focused on “business as usual” scenarios with rapidly increasing GHGs, that has not been the case in real world observation by environmental scientists across the globe.
After spending more than a decade observing the glaciers in Greenland, scientists have concluded that they are not melting with the veracity that climate change alarmists would have us believe.
Along with the glaciers not preforming up to climate change alarmists expectations, it has been noted that flowers are blooming up to 8 times faster than were projected.
In a study published in the journal Remote Sensing, co-author Dr. Roy Spencer reported that real data from NASA’s Terra Satellite completely contradicts the assumptions made by climate change alarmists.
