It is not a consensus

Curiously news items that do not support man-made or anthropogenic, global warming do not seem to make it to the main-stream media so I will do my bit to raise the profile of two quite astonishing pieces of news. In short Dr. James Hansen's* supervisor, Dr. John S. Theon, has stated publicly that Hansen “embarrassed NASA”, he was never muzzled” and his “climate models are useless.” Read the story here. Then Dr J. Scott Armstrong** makes a statement which states that there are "eight reasons as to why the current IPCC computer models lack a scientific basis." Read that story here.

* Dr. James Hansen is the chief climate scientist at NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) and is the man who originally raised the alarm on global warming in 1988 in an appearance before congress.

** Dr J. Scott Armstrong is the founder of the International Journal of Forecasting, Journal of Forecasting, International Institute of Forecasters, and International Symposium on Forecasting, and the author of Long-range Forecasting (1978, 1985), the Principles of Forecasting Handbook, and over 70 papers on forecasting.
