Reasonable Climate Scientist Says AGW Is Like Exploding 400K Atomic Bombs A Day

Remember, these are the folks that are supposed to be interested in sciiiiiiiience, not hyperbole (via Climate Depot)

(Vancouver Observer) The amazing persistence of CO2 in the air has allowed billions of our small emissions, like those from the Enola Gay, to amass into an ever growing threat to civilization. How fast is that threat growing? In a must-see TED talk, NASA climate scientist James Hansen say the current increase in global warming is:

“…equivalent to exploding 400,000 Hiroshima atomic bombs per day 365 days per year. That’s how much extra energy Earth is gaining each day.”

That’s 278 atomic bombs worth of energy every minute – more than four per second — non-stop. To be clear, that is just the extra energy being gained each day on top of the energy heating our planet by 0.8 degree C. It is the rate at which we are increasing global warming.

Of course, this means we are doomed. That massive increase of 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit during the 2oth century proves it. Amazingly, the article gets even dumber after that

Warmer air can hold more water. Last year, NASA said satellite measurements showed it rained so hard around the world that the oceans fell.

Funny how they also seem to find a way to blame anthropogenic global warming for everything that happens that disputes their theory hypothesis crystal ball.

According to research by Hansen and others, extreme heat used to cover less than 1 per cent of our earth’s surface. But our CO2 has now cooked 10 per cent of our planet into “extreme heat” conditions at any given point in time.

Say, what caused all those deserts around the world before fossil fuels?

For a laugh, read the whole article.

    The current increase in global warming is “…equivalent to exploding 400,000 Hiroshima atomic bombs per day…”? Let’s try an experiment; pick a day and explode 400,000 of them. See if anyone thinks it’s equivalent.

    Atomic bombs are child’s play. My farts alone will end all life as we know it within three months. See? Just pull my finger.

  3. Warmists are a bit unhinged in their pronouncements.

  4. Moggsy says:

    The Oceans fell? What happened to sea level rise?

  5. klem says:

    I read in a peer reviewed paper that every human fart melts the equivelent of a football sized chunk of ice from Antarctica. How many ice footballs have you melted up to now?

  6. klem says:

    Hansen is paid millions ever year to make pronouncements like this. If you were paid that kind of money you’d probably say the same things. Anybody would.
