Thirty years of data have been collected since Mr. Hansen outlined his scenarios—enough to determine which was closest to reality. And the winner is Scenario C. Global surface temperature has not increased significantly since 2000, discounting the larger-than-usual El Niño of 2015-16. Assessed by Mr. Hansen’s model, surface temperatures are behaving as if we had capped 18 years ago the carbon-dioxide emissions responsible for the enhanced greenhouse effect. But we didn’t. And it isn’t just Mr. Hansen who got it wrong. Models devised by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have, on average, predicted about twice as much warming as has been observed since global satellite temperature monitoring began 40 years ago.
Outside the warming models, his only explicit claim in the testimony was that the late ’80s and ’90s would see “greater than average warming in the southeast U.S. and the Midwest.” No such spike has been measured in these regions.
On the 30th anniversary of Mr. Hansen’s galvanizing testimony, it’s time to acknowledge that the rapid warming he predicted isn’t happening. Climate researchers and policy makers should adopt the more modest forecasts that are consistent with observed temperatures.
That would be a lukewarm policy, consistent with a lukewarming planet.

Humm funny thing is i do remember the ice age scare ( I am 52 )
They had no plan to combat it .
as for what is really happing to earths climate its a fact but being warmer has never been a problem only a fool would think that .
On the other hand over fishing over farming over producing to the point of acid rain is a problem .
The ocean fished out and pollution getting so bad 25 % of the great reff is dead is not something that you need a model for all you need to do is look .
Wild area left on the planet getting smaller and smaller ELE every last species of animal over 200 pounds is ether going extinct or in danger of it .
yes i know still some that number 500 k same could be said 20 years agaio about all the rest that are now going on just a few left .
Every one is so focused on how warm it is but no ones seams to give a darn soon the largest animal on earth will be a man .
