The re-building you referred to, lazarus, was nowhere near the waterlevel stretch of the Westside Highway (properly called the Henry Hudson Parkway north of 72nd Street) that Hansen can see from his office on West 112th Street today, as he did back in 1988.
So what are you claiming now? That he wasn't talking about the Westside Highway but the Henry Hudson Parkway?
The point is that there is nothing to collaborate what was said and this alleged conversation seem to have come to light just when the alleger is publishing a Hansen bashing book.
Yes - Mr Hansen predicted 80 feet of sea level rise by 2000. You pointed to a link which stated 136mm actual rise in 40 years. My personal recordings have shown negligable rise. What have your personal recordings shown?
Yes - Mr Hansen predicted 80 feet of sea level rise by 2000.
But he didn't. None of the science he published states anything remotely like this.
But this has neatly demonstrated that people without evidence to support their beliefs will latch on to the smallest thing and delude themselves it is really significant.
Even if he was on record, recorded on tape or film saying this it wouldn't be science unless it was published and peered. It would just be personal opinion (one he has never publicly expressed remember), NOT science. Of course if he was saying something that supported your beliefs you would accept it as good 'evidence' just as you do with nut jobs like Glenn Beck.
Here's more from Glen Beck. www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y40D1Kgb8ngThis is mainstream American news. Oh the irony of it. No science here. That's why I'm posting this on a science forum. IRONY writ large here. Remember that Clash song that opened with the lines : Sitting in my garage with my bullshit detector.....this interview makes me so angry..........
