In that interview, Hansen admitted a couple of basic things that many people do not realize. So if you’re new to discussions of global warming and rising sea levels read on. First, global surface temperatures were warmer during the last interglacial than they are today. An interglacial is a period between ice ages. That will be news to many readers. How then, many will wonder, do we know for sure that the recent warming was caused by manmade greenhouse gases since we’re still within the realm of natural variability? Of course the answer is: Climate models tell us so, even though those climate models are not simulating Earth’s climate as it existed in the past, as it exists now, and as it might exist in the future…climate models do not simulate naturally occurring ocean-atmosphere processes that can cause global warming. Hansen’s second admission was sea levels were 6 to 9 meters (20 to 30 feet) higher during the last interglacial than they are today.
You do know that the oceans are a carbon sink and the trees take carbon from the air . Particulate matter like volcanoes usually comes back down eventually . I remember Mount Saint Helens putting ash on my car and I am on the east coast .Hard to say how much blew out to the Atlantic .
We have changed the climate since the industrial revolution with all the particulates we pumped into the atmosphere , much carbon was produced and sent skywards

Hello, thought I would go ahead and clear things up about the whole global warming debate once and for all.
This article is a mess, I'm sure someone out there can make it more coherent, but the truth remains.
