The Sky Is Falling: Obama's Presidency is Validated by the Lunatics

Jim Hansen the Goddard Institute of Space Studies (why is he even working for NASA) idiot has come out with yet another assinine prediction.

President 'has four years to save Earth'

However, Hansen said feedbacks in the climate system are already accelerating ice melt and are threatening to lead to the collapse of ice sheets. Sea-level rises will therefore be far greater - a claim backed last week by a group of British, Danish and Finnish scientists who said studies of past variations in climate indicate that a far more likely figure for sea-level rise will be about 1.4 metres, enough to cause devastating flooding of many of the world's major cities and of low-lying areas of Holland, Bangladesh and other nations.

As a result of his fears about sea-level rise, Hansen said he had pressed both Britain's Royal Society and the US National Academy of Sciences to carry out an urgent investigation of the state of the planet's ice-caps. However, nothing had come of his proposals. The first task of Obama's new climate office should therefore be to order such a probe "as a matter of urgency", Hansen added.

Okay the guy is talking about how it is almost too late, however you have this:

Recent cold snap helping Arctic sea ice, scientists find

"It's nice to know that the ice is recovering," Josefino Comiso, a senior research scientist with the Cryospheric Sciences Branch of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Centre in Maryland, told CBC News on Thursday.

Evidently the head of Goddard forgot to talk with other people within the same agency.
