NASA’s retired ex-con James Hansen’s ‘scandalous interview’: Hansen opened with the most astonishing claim about global temperatures: ‘In the last decade it’s warmed only about a tenth of a degrees as compared to about two tenths of a degree in the preceding decade. A claim which completely contradicts Hansen’s own GISTEMP dataset’
'Hansen also spoke of the climate sensitivity, making the bizarre claim that our understanding is based on paleoclimate rather than models and speaking of the excellence of the data in this area. This is mind-boggling, since these datasets contain so little information that they can barely constrain the climate sensitivity at all...He also tried to blame the standstill on aerosols, ignoring the fact that the IPCC's best estimate now finds that their effect is small, and he described heat going into the oceans as 'a detail' and 'a diversionary tactic.' Quite disgraceful.
