Thirty Years Of Failed Climate Predictions
On June 23 1988, NASA's James Hansen testified before Congress and made very specific predictions about global warming. In this video I show how he got them exactly backwards, and how scientists and j...
Can Climate Models Predict Climate Change?
Predicting climate temperatures isn't science – it's science fiction. Emeritus Professor of Physics at Princeton University Will Happer explains. Donate today to PragerU! http://l.prageru.com/2eB2p0h ...
NASA Plans To Deploy Micro Satellites To Help Forecast Hurricanes: How Will It Work
The new microsatellites that NASA plans to deploy in space are said to improve weather forecasting on Earth. The operational aspect of this system is said to enhance data collection and thus enable sc...
