Editor’s note: This summary serves as a fact check on the biggest false claims made in the media in June, 2023. 

June 23, 2023 marked the 35th anniversary of Dr. James Hansen’s front-page Senate testimony formally launching climate idiocy.

But Hansen’s predictions haven’t panned out so well. A point-by-point fact check of it is here.

Ten more false climate claims from June have already gone bust and are presented below.

We’ll close out by returning to James Hansen’s June 1988 testimony. As it turns out, June 2023 was 1.53°F cooler in the U.S. than June 1988.

It would be interesting to hear Dr. Hansen explain how June 2023 could possibly so much cooler than June 1988 despite a doubling of industrial era atmospheric CO2. Though pinged for a response via Twitter, so far not a peep from him.

Until next month…
