While NASA climate alarmist James Hansen insists record summer heat and drought are caused by man-made global warming, leaked internal emails from just three summers ago reveal that he and his colleagues expressed alarm that the planet was inexplicably ... cooling.
Hansen, often called the "godfather of global warming," announced earlier this month that blistering heat across the United States is so rare that it can't be anything but the man-made global warming he has been warning about for decades.
"This is not some scientific theory," he told the Associated Press. "We are now experiencing scientific fact."
But in 2009, as the thermometer hit record lows in America, he and other climate scientists panicked in a flurry of emails: "Skeptics will be all over us - the world is really cooling, the models are no good."
They lamented that Mother Nature was not cooperating with their predictions that global temperatures would smash heat records last decade. They blamed their miscalculation on sulfate emission trajectories and revised their forecast to show a cooling trend lasting until 2020.
