Video: Hansen’s Global Warming Prediction at 30. How did He Do?

This is a re-post from Climate Denial Crock of the Week

June 23, 1988.

Easy to remember, because it’s my birthday.
And the day I thought that, at last, humans were serious about the 800 pound gorilla of environmental issues.

Senior NASA scientist James Hansen, whose work I had been following for some time, came before the Senate, on a brutally hot summer day – and laid out his findings. He was pushing the envelope of what the data could tell, but his instincts were telling him that what he was seeing was real.

How did he do?
I made a point to ask a number of senior scientists this question at last December’s American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting.
