The Oceans Will Begin to Boil, Raves Global Warming Hoaxer

As its radical divergence from reality causes the global warming hoax to dwindle away, those who have exploited it for fame and fortune have been ramping up their rhetoric to ever more risible extremes of apocalyptic fervor in a pathetic attempt to extend their 15 minutes of fame. Al Gore accomplice James Hansen has gotten so carried away that he now claims if we don’t sacrifice our liberty and standard of living to the bleak gods of left-wing authoritarianism, the oceans will boil and all life will die:

Time to add boiling oceans to The List.

Hansen makes a nice living at our expense as head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies. NASA was once involved in space exploration, but now has other priorities, such as helping Muslims feel good about their paltry scientific contributions and providing a soapbox for clownish ideologues like Hansen.

On a tip from Nobody. Hat tip: Watts Up With That?

    Boiling oceans? Awesome! Free energy. You’d think that would make the Eco-Fascists happy, no?

  2. Gaye Ellis says:

    We can dye Spring Equinox eggs. It will be AWESOME!

    Oh my GOD, what a bunch of drivel. This guy is totally making it up as he goes along. TOTALLY.

    First, sir, the atmosphere of Venus is Co2 and sulfuric acid, not just Co2. Next, the amount of Co2 in the entire earth (and I’m including that which is trapped in sea water, rocks, etc.) is a mere fraction of what Venus has. Releasing all of it at once wouldn’t get us the slightest bit close to Venus levels.

    Next, we have water vapor now constituting a “potent green house gas”. (Check out Wikipedia…they’ve already gotten on there and made this a “fact”). You must work for the EPA. When you can regulate WATER VAPOR, you have total control of everything.

    Next, you just about gutted your own theories because you admit we’ve had serious climate shifts LONG BEFORE MAN HAD ANY INFLUENCE WHATSOEVER. Mysteriously, that doesn’t figure in to your equation.

    Next, you somehow admit we’ve had ice ages, but say there has never been “runaway” warming. How do you account for all that mega-flora and other indications of a globally warmer, wetter earth?

    Lastly, you say warming is permanent and deadly…everything goes extinct during warm periods (when things seem to thrive) yet during ice ages (when things actually die) we survive.

    Oh, and ice ages end because of volcanos spewing that awful Co2 into the atmosphere and…

    This guy has his head so far up his ass he needs a plexiglass stomach to see where he’s going.

    My GOD what a lying idiot…and done with a straight face, no less. The money to be made from the AGW hoax must be INCREDIBLE.

    …AND, the amount of heat needed to get the oceans to 212 degrees, plus the amount of time it would have to stay that hot, is almost beyond comprehension.

    Water boils at 212 degrees. There is about 300,000,000,000,000,000,000 gallons (300 million trillion gallons) of water in the oceans. Do a little quick math. The number of BTU’s needed to get that much water to boiling temperature is just slightly more that you can get from a couple of cans of Sterno.

    Hanson should be put in jail.

  5. F.D.R. in Hell says:

    The Oceans Will Boil…when Lucifer says so, not before!

  6. RICH says:

    The weight of a trace gas “significantly” warming the mass of our oceans is physically impossibile.

    The crooks belong in jail and the loonies sent to Bellevue.

  7. Kevin R. says:

    There’s one thing for an absolute certainty, destroy freedom so crackpot socialists can claim that all of their tyrany is necessary or we’re all doomed, and no-ones life is going to be worth a plugged nickel and the civilized world will crumble. That is an absolute certainty.

    I’ll take my chances with a free society rather than the tender mercies of the crackpot oligarchical collectivists. People like Hansen can go to hell.

  8. rockman says:

    Do you people not believe in man-bear-pig?
    What the hell is the matter with you?

  9. Al Gore says:

    Look morons. The man just presented science.

    He took time out of his schedule to recite some SCIENCE for you half-wits out there.

    Let me sum up what he said…..

    “you can get to a situation…!”

    “We’re going to be Venus.. ! ”

    “Runaway greenhouse…The end…Melting…!”

    “Things start to get hotter and hotter…!”

    “Frozen methane hydrates are released…!”

    “Add it to the CO2 and the water vapor, bitch!…”


    So there you have it. Proof. Positive.

    Dumb bastards.

  10. Al Gore says:


    This is in my own words. Maybe you can understand that.

  11. Al Gore says:

    Didja notice my boots, bitches?

  12. Lyle says:

    As I watched him, I couldn’t help but notice a half cocked smile that would occasionally creep across his face. I think it was everything he could do to keep from breaking out laughing as he laid one whopper on top of another.

  13. ZZMike says:

    He’s the guy who, 40 years ago, would be walking around Times Square wearing a sandwich board.

  14. SeaFoamGreen says:

    ZZMike, you mean “Repent, the end is nigh” kind of sandwich board?

    Difference is, that guy was right.

  15. SpideyTerry says:

    Eh, fine by me. Ocean’s always been too cold for my tastes anyway.

  16. Dr. 9 says:

    Mr. Hansen is living proof that we must reinstate public hangings.

  17. SeaFoamGreen says:

    …and just think: you could net a pre-boiled lobster, pull him up and immediately dip him in melted butter. The energy savings are staggering…

  18. chuck in st paul says:

    How does one go about parodying a parody of life?

    OMG! I have to tell you this one reminded me of that rather old bit, “Beam me up Scotty… no intelligent life forms.”

  19. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Ironic how he can relate to butterflies, isn’t it ?
    The whole time I was watching, I kept waiting for a couple of guys in in white to drag him away

  20. octa bright says:

    It would seem that Mr. Hansen is assuming that there are no limiting factors. If that were the case the periods of heavy volcanic activity would have already caused the run away greenhouse effect long before man came on the scene. In addition Mr. Hansen totally ignores the fact that we have had cycles of warming and cooling as far as we can tell without a great deal of human input.
    finally if this truly is the huge problem which is claimed the endangered spcies act should be modified so that it does not affect the construction of hydroelectric plants, there shoud be an expidited process to construct nucular plants, and Brizal, Russia, India, and the Peoples Republic of China should be given ultimatums to reduce their carbon emissions or be destroyed. Since that is not even mentioned I tend to view this hysteria with a rather cynical gaze.

  21. Winston Smith says:

    So I guess that means everyone will have nice hot tea or coffee down by the sea shore. Scoop some boiling ocean and add some tea or coffee.

  22. deep red says:

    Maybe he’s just mixed up. He’s thinking of Gaia’s sister Venus.

  23. Sam Adams says:

    Those wasted minutes watching Hanson can never be recovered.

  24. Tim from TK says:

    Nice chart of global mean temperature going back to the Precambrian that gives he lie to the whole mess. Even better, the chart is from the usually leftoid New Scientist:

    You may need to click on the graph to embiggen.

  25. Jodie says:

    I started the video, then went to the kitchen and cleaned up a few things. When I came back, the video was done. Thank God I didn’t waste my time on someone who is clearly just making up nonsense to get attention.

  26. deep red says:

    Venus… now she’s HOT!!!!!!

  27. FrankHD says:

    This idiot thinks we are all bigger idiots. These fools like Hanson prey on the lack of knowlege and common sense that, because of the FAILED education system in this country, makes it easier to push this garbage down younger peoples throats.
    Common sense would tell us that the temperature needed to melt the ice caps and boil the oceans would have to be constant and would take many years. Also you would have to forget that melting ice thats already in water will not cause ocean levels to rise (only a small amount of ice is land locked).
    I say that if the earth is going to boil away in 100 years, (funny its always doom for the planet AFTER these people will be dead and not have to answer for their FRAUD), then after 10 years if the planet isn’t 1/10 of the way to boiling, meaning that if the earths tempature isn’t 20 degrees warmer ALL THE TIME, we take all these Hansonites and throw them in jail.

  28. John Lewis says:

    Let’s see: global warming has been promised to us for about 35 years now. I live in Canada, and frankly would enjoy some warmth, global or otherwise. There has been no observable rise in the sea level down in the port (observation) and CO2 is a minor greenhouse gas (theory).

    So it is all BS.

    Boiling oceans! Free green thermogenic energy! lol
