Going where no scientifically astute person has gone before: James Hansen claims Texas Heat Wave directly caused by “Global Warming”

NASA's James Hansen looking creepy

NASA's James Hansen is claiming there is a direct link between the Texas 2011 heat wave and global warming climate change.
(Houston Chronicle) — Well known climate scientist and activist James Hansen has a new paper on climate science titled, Climate Variability and Climate Change: The New Climate Dice.

In the paper he directly and without equivocation ties the Moscow (2010) and Texas (2011) heat waves to climate change:
Thus there is no need to equivocate about the summer heat waves in Texas in 2011 and Moscow in 2010, which exceeded 3σ – it is nearly certain that they would not have occurred in the absence of global warming. If global warming is not slowed from its current pace, by mid-century 3σ events will be the new norm and 5σ events will be common.
I will let the words of Andrew Dessler professor at Texas A&M University in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences refute this outrageous claim.
I know that climate change does not cause any specific weather event. 
James Hansen presides over the GISS data set. He has been accused of fudging the numbers.
