Every city has its good side and bad side. Eric Cartman compared East Denver to Afghanistan.

For James Hansen, the safe side of the tracks is 350 ppm CO2 ? i.e. 1988 (aka the year Tim Wirth turned off the Congressional air conditioner to make it hot for Hansen?s testimony.)

So how safe was the climate before 350 ppm?

All seven continents set their high temperature records prior to 1988.

The biggest Atlantic hurricane occurred prior to 1988.

The deadliest Atlantic hurricane occurred prior to 1988.

The deadliest tornado occurred prior to 1988.

The worst decade for hurricanes occurred prior to 1988.

The worst decade for tornadoes occurred prior to 1988.

The worst floods occurred prior to 1988.

The worst droughts occurred prior to 1988.

The worst famines occurred prior to 1988.

The worst heatwaves in the US occurred prior to 1988.

The worst tornado outbreak occurred prior to 1988.

So, just what was so ?safe? about the climate below 350 ppm? Please stop trying to scare our children. They deserve to grow up with the same hopefulness which we did. There isn?t a damn thing you could do about the CO2 ? even if you scared half the people on the planet.
