‘The doomsayers were right’: James Hansen’s 30-year-old climate warning rings true today

This article discusses scientist James Hansen’s documenting climate change, and how deniers now rule the landscape. 30 years after a brave scientist warned us about global warming, deniers run America. This is a good article showing how deniers mobilized to stop the truth from getting out.

On June 23, 1988 NASA’s James Hansen told the U.S. Congress that global warming had begun — and he predicted it was just going to get worse and worse as levels of human-caused carbon pollution kept rising.

“Thirty years later, it’s clear that Hansen and other doomsayers were right,” the AP explained this week after talking to more than 50 scientists.

Indeed, earlier this year, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) tweetedout that “the five warmest years on Earth have all occurred since 2010.”
