Dr. James Hansen of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) has announced that 2010 was the “hottest year on record” – by 0.01 degrees. His claim has been widely touted in the press as strong evidence that the climate is rapidly heating – due to human generated CO2 emissions. Dr. Hansen has also stated: “I would not be surprised if most or all groups found that 2010 was tied for the warmest year.” But most groups do not support his claim.
