Here, from Fox so you know you can trust it.

NASA's chilling 30-year-old warning

We were warned. On June 23, 1988, a sultry day in Washington, James Hansen told the US Congress and the world that global warming wasn’t approaching — it had already arrived.

The testimony of the top NASA scientist, said Rice University historian Douglas Brinkley, was “the opening salvo of the age of climate change.”

Thirty years later, it’s clear that Hansen and other doomsayers were right. But the change has been so sweeping that it is easy to lose sight of effects large and small — some obvious, others less conspicuous.


Earth is noticeably hotter, the weather stormier and more extreme. Polar regions have lost billions of tons of ice; sea levels have been raised by trillions of gallons of water. Far more wildfires rage.

Over 30 years — the time period climate scientists often use in their studies in order to minimize natural weather variations — the world’s annual temperature has warmed 0.54 degrees Celsius, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. And the temperature in the United States has gone up even more — nearly 0.85 degrees.

“The biggest change over the last 30 years, which is most of my life, is that we’re no longer thinking just about the future,” said Kathie Dello, a climate scientist at Oregon State University in Corvallis. “Climate change is here, it’s now and it’s hitting us hard from all sides.”

...Numerous scientific studies and government reports calculate that greenhouse gases in the big picture account for more than 90 per cent of post-industrial Earth’s warming.

It would take centuries to a millennium to accomplish that kind of change with natural causes. This, in that context, is a dizzying pace,” said Kim Cobb, a climate scientist at Georgia Tech in Atlanta.

The RW's stupid denial of global warming is purely political. Why would they stupidly maintain it's false? Because they believe the no-brainer GOP politicians in the oil company's deep pockets who maintain NOTHING IS PROVEN. Why? The politicians know the scientists aren't lying. Because it makes big Energy look bad, destroying the world to make a tidy profit. And anything that makes Exxon look bad makes the guys taking Exxon's money look bad.

It's all about image. It's about the show. Reality doesn't matter, all that matters is that the politicians get greasy palms. That's it.

Big oil companies make money on climate hysteria.

Hansen never said that. So you are lying to "make your point". A profoundly stupid point at that.
