Hansen can't have it both ways. He named a date with the clear implication his CO2 condition was likely to be met. His poor estimate on the condition cannot be an excuse for his silly prediction of the date.:roll:
Hansen was asked "what would happen if CO2 doubled in the next 40 years?" Surprise! CO2 hasn't doubled in that time.
And of course, your own chart proves you wrong. We've seen multiple declines, over and over, while overall temperatures keep going up. We can easily see that the average anomalies before 1997 were all negative, while the anomalies after 1997 were almost all positive. And that May 2018 anomaly? Yeah, that's still higher than most months.
Thanks for displaying, yet again, the utter bankruptcy of the denialist position.
Anomalies are headed down and will be back in negative territory before long. With the sun approaching minimum, we're looking at several years, perhaps decades of cooling.
Thanks anyway, Captain Obvious.
