In 1988, NASA’s top climate expert told Congress that the Midwest will face frequent episodes of very high temperatures and drought in the coming decades.
In fact, the exact opposite has occurred. The frequency of hot days has plummeted since 1988 in the midwest, and is down 80% since the 1930’s.
The Midwest has been getting progressively wetter, with almost no drought since Hansen made his forecast.
James Hansen is considered the world’s top climate scientist, and has no idea what he is talking about. It only gets worse as you go down the ladder.
