Global Warming: The BIGGEST LIE Exposed
I will never understand the kind of
thinking behind a lie so big that it became an international fraud and swindle.
I cannot understand why an international organization, the Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change, (IPCC) operating under the umbrella of the United
Nations, was permitted to issue reports of an imminent threat to the Earth, to
mankind, that a freshman student of meteorology would know were
At long last the Big Lie of Global
Warming has been totally exposed and we can thank The Heartland Institute, a free market think
tank that has organized and hosted eight international Conferences on Climate
Change since 2008 to expose the lies behind global warming—now called “climate
change”—as it became clear that seventeen years of continuous cooling has put a
Big Chill on this Big Lie.
suspect that the Heartland team, led by Joe Bast and including some remarkable,
dedicated people, will only get a line or two in some future historian’s account
of the deception that began in 1988 before a congressional committee. Thereafter
the global warming hoax was given momentum by former Vice President Al Gore who,
along with the IPCC, would receive a Nobel Peace Prize!
It helps to have a sense of humor when
you are doing battle with hucksters who have the entire world’s media to defend
them. The climate “skeptics”—some of the world’s most renowned
meteorologists—dubbed their effort the Nongovernmental International Panel on
Climate Change (NIPCC) and, working with the Heartland Institute, have just
released a new edition of “Climate Change Reconsidered
It arrives just as the IPCC will
release its 5th Assessment
Report. The IPCC’s lies will get lots of news coverage. Heartland's NIPCC report
was fortunate to have notice taken by Fox News, but beyond that most of the
intransigent U.S. news media ignored it.
As often as not one has to look to
foreign newspapers to get the truth. In Great Britain’s The
Mail, the headline on September 14 was “Global warming just HALF what we
said: World’s top climate scientists admit computers got the effects of
greenhouse gases wrong.” A leaked copy of the IPCC report revealed “scientific
forecasts of imminent doom were drastically wrong.”
Well, of course, they were wrong. The
so-called “science” on which they were based was idiotic. It focused primarily
on carbon dioxide (CO2) and other so-called “greenhouse gases”, claiming they
were trapping heat while being produced by all manner of human activity related
to generating energy with coal, oil, and natural gas.
Dr. Martin Hertzberg, Ph,D, co-author
of “Slaying the Sky Dragon—Death of the Greenhouse Gas Theory”, summed it up
neatly, pointing out that water vapor in the Earth’s atmosphere is a
primary factor affecting climate long term and weather short term.
“The determinant of weather is mainly
water in all its forms,” said Dr. Herzberg, “as vapor in the atmosphere, in its
heat transport by evaporation and condensation, as the enormous circulating mass
of liquid ocean whose heat capacity and mass/energy transport dominate the
motions of our atmosphere and the precipitation from it, and finally as cloud,
snow, and ice cover which influence the radiative balance between the Sun, the
Earth, and free Space.”
As you try to wrap your mind around
that explanation, just think about the way the Earth goes through regular
seasons as well as predictable cycles of warming and cooling. It has done this
now for some 4.5 billion years.
To read "Climate Change Reconsidered
II", visit its website.
Among its findings, the report notes that “no close correlation exists between
temperature variation over the past 150 years and human related CO2 emissions.”
Blaming the climate or even the weather on humans is insane. You might as well
blame the floods in Colorado on humans instead of the downpours of rain,
comparable to 1894 and 1969.
Indeed, the U.S. gives ample evidence
of greatly reduced events associated with the weather. There have been fewer
tornadoes over recent decades.It’s been
eight years since a Category 3 hurricane hit the U.S. Droughts have been shorter
and less extreme than the 1930s and 1950s. And sea levels are predicted to
increase barely four to eight inches per century and that may be on the high
side. There will be dramatic weather events, but there have always been dramatic weather events!
The Heartland’s new report is welcome,
but both they and I know that the same deceitful charlatans are still at work in
the United Nations, in the United States, and around the world to keep this
greatest of hoaxes alive.
The harm the global warming hoax has
done and continues to do is best seen in the efforts of the Environmental
Protection Agency to wipe out the coal industry based entirely on the lie that
CO2 is a “pollutant.” When the House Energy & Commerce Committee held a
hearing on the Obama administration’s climate policies thirteen agencies were
invited to testify, but the administration provided only EPA administrator Gina
McCarty and Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz. The latter read a prepared statement
that was one long lie about global warming. Presumably he was under
Ms. McCarty, the latest in a long line
of environmental fanatics to run the agency, was forced under questioning to
admit that current and proposed greenhouse gas regulations are not there to protect the public but to
influence “the international community” to reduce their CO2 and other alleged
emissions. Not only do the regulations have no basis in science, but they exist
to keep the environmental war on energy use going and to pressure developing
nations such as China and India. Within the past month, the citizens of
Australia rose up and threw out the politicians who imposed a “carbon” tax on
them. The new prime minister has shut down the “climate ministry” that existed
to enforce it.
And while most of the world wasn’t
watching, the United Nations was seeking to impose, once again, an international
agreement similar to the failed and defunct Kyoto Protocol to limit CO2 and
other greenhouse emissions, based on the BIG LIE! The 44th Pacific Islands Forum, held in the
Marshall Islands, was intent on “an ambitious future climate regime to be
finalized in 2015.”
That is what must be understood. These
people will not give up until they have no other option. They will continue to
exploit the ignorance of people regarding the actual science, penalizing them by
driving up the cost of energy use, by closing down energy industries,
prospective projects, and the jobs they provide,
They sustain the malignant ethanol
scam that is ruining engines as this is being written. They are behind the
useless solar panel and wind turbine industries that produce so little actual
electricity they are a negative drag on the national grid. You, however, are
picking up the tab for their mandated use. They practice a form of child abuse
to tell children the Earth is doomed if their mother uses a plastic bag to bring
groceries home from the supermarket.
The world’s BIGGEST LIE has been
exposed and it will have to be exposed again and again until a stake is driven
into the evil heart of the “global warming” hoax.
