“The Earth has Changed Before, What’s the Big Deal?” – Hansen on Deep Time
February 25, 2016
The new Hansen interview vid caused youtube to remind me of this jewel from my “Climate Denial Crock of the Week” series. (people say,” why don’t you do more of those” – dude, fund me. I’m working as hard as I can)
This is the video I refer people to when they give me the “earth has been warmer before, don’t scientists know that?” line. (trust me, scientists have thought of this)
I took a lecture that James Hansen had online, and enhanced with explanatory graphics – and a teensy bit of sarc. And it’s not your ears, the sound is muffled first 30 seconds.
Yeah. Scientists know it’s changed before.
