Please, no questions from critical thinking adults...
Controversial climate scientists Dr James Hansen, currently at the center of a storm regarding comments he made praising the communist Chinese dictatorship, has made another startling prediction at a public library in Westport, Connecticut.
Speaking to an audience of around 200 people, Dr Hansen warned that the North Pole will shortly be ice-free, thanks to global warming. As the Westport Patch reports:
Hansen went on with frightening statistics: carbon emissions to the atmosphere have increased 2.5 percent over the past decade, a time of heightened awareness. “We will lose all the ice in the polar ice cap in a couple of decades,” he said, predicting the impact from rising sea levels will devastate coastal communities worldwide.
Dr Hansen didn’t cite any peer-reviewed studies in support of this assertion, and only took questions from children, saying: “I want to hear questions from the young, not the old”.
