Apparently time began in 1970. Nothing that happened before then really did happen.
Climate history deniers are busy telling us that Sandy is unprecedented, that 50 people dying from a weak hurricane is worse than the 8,000 who dies in 19023 in Galveston.
Or the 20,000 who were wiped out in 1780, with CO2 at 280ppm.
Hansen has performed a neat trick, he has started time in 1970, yet was born earlier than that.
How did he perform such an ingenious thing?
