It Just Doesn't Get...

...any better than this.  At Hot Air, they are reacting to an alarmist, doom and gloom article by James Hansen that was published in the New York Slimes, sliming the Alberta "Tar" Sands, of course.

One of the best comments, so far, provides a link to this Nixonian era document authored by Daniel Moynihan predicting doom and gloom by the year 2000.
"“It is now pretty clearly agreed that the C02 content will rise 25% by 2000. This could increase the average temperature near the earth’ s surface by 7 degrees Fahrenheit. This in turn could raise the level of the sea by 10 feet. Goodbye New York.

Goodbye Washington, for that matter. We have no data on Seattle.”"
I wonder if Moynihan lived in Seattle?

In any case, helloooooooo. It's now 2012.
