We’ve heard several anecdotal examples of local children becoming frightened after seeing Al Gore’s movie, and maybe that’s why we’re so angry with him. To counter that, the British High Court has ruled that the film, if shown in their schools, must be preceded by a disclaimer that it is propaganda, not a documentary.. and a specific list of 9 distinct inaccuracies must be included in the warning. The 9 have since expanded to 35, and we heartily encourage you to examine each and every one by clicking HERE.
From our point of view, we’re watching a world gone mad, with everyone hustling to get a piece of the action. Politicians, radical environmentalists, and even mainstream businesses are scrambling to appear as “green” as they can – and reap of piece of the financial action sure to follow as funds are diverted from normal paths in a headlong race to save the planet.
Some of this is actually good. We do need to cut down on our use of petroleum fuels, because they’re becoming more and more expensive to find and recover – and as Will Rogers said, “They’re making more people every day, but they ain’t making any more dirt.” Green is good, and we here at the Community Network try very hard to be good stewards of the environment. We recycle everything, drive 2nd-hand cars that get high gas mileage, and even had only one offspring – thus gaining one whole human lifetime of “carbon credits”. It is overpopulation, after all, that is using up our resources at an ever-increasing rate. So the Great Global Warming Hoax could have a unintended positive side in energy conservation, and even Hitler made the trains run on time in Nazi Germany.
But is it wise to achieve a noble goal by deceit, information spin, bad science, dire predictions, censorship, and outright terrorism of our children? We think not.
We understand that those who jumped on the Global Bandwagon early on are now in a difficult position. Many are now searching for a way to back out quietly, without having their professional careers ruined. Others are continuing to miss-quote all the bad “science” on the subject, desperate to perpetuate what appears now to be only a myth. The Popular Journalists would starve if folks stopped reading their global hysteria books, and if folks stopped believing that Global Warming is man-made, they’ll have to find some new themes on catastrophic events and sell us on the idea that we’re to blame.
A recent U.S. Senate report quotes 400+ scientists who originally bought the global warming hoax, and are now confessing that they don’t believe in it any more. Yes, Sen. Inhofe, who sponsored the report is a minority Republican on the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, and the liberal Democrats aren’t about to believe anything he says, but we’ll give him credit for being the first member of Congress to take a stand against the growing hysteria. It’s a mess, and we’re in it up to our cultural necks.
What is potentially more alarming, is that some of the early knee-jerk scientists that were so quick to jump on the climate panic bandwagon are now fighting desperately to save their careers by deliberately producing falsified data in a last-ditch effort to support their individual research and save their professional reputations. In our own research, we uncovered some “data” in which a CO2 curve from an ice core study was conveniently moved some 83 years down the time scale, so the desired “results” could be obtained. It’s much too lengthy to discuss here, but if you’d like to delve into the subject in depth, we’ve posted the full paper by Prof. Zbigniew Jaworowski, Chairman of the Scientific Council of Central Laboratory for Radiological Protection in Warsaw, Poland.
Powerful political forces are also hard at work, attempting to preserve what we currently perceive as to be a myth by government-enforced “education”. The State of California is attempting to require the myth to be taught in all of their public schools. Given the general level of science literacy of most public school teachers, particularly in the lower grades, we wonder from where the course materials would come. We’re betting Greenpeace would be more than happy to supply the “information”. We’re also betting that Vermont could soon follow suit. We don’t call ourselves the Green Mountain State for nothing.
The “debate” now seems to be settled down between two opposing political forces, commonly labeled “liberal” and “conservative”, and two separate scientific “methods” of proving their points. Here they are, in a nutshell:
All of the empirical evidence now favors the “conservatives”, who apply the laws of physics and chemistry to known data and conclude that anthropogenic global warming can’t be happening. The coup de grace on the conservative side is the fact that CO2 is lagging temperature, and thus, they say, what happens next month can’t possibly be affecting what is happening today. We tend to favor this logic.
The “liberals”, on the other hand, have turned to computer modeling to “prove” the world is about to come to an end. Models can and in fact are being constructed which can prove anything you want. By tweaking the data, you can even make them come out with the opposite answer. “Modeling” is a perfect tool for perpetuating a scam like this, because they have absolutely no basis in factual science, yet are easy to sell to the unsuspecting public who thinks they are a part of legitimate research process. Unfortunately, there is much “model tweaking” (OK, “faking” is the better word ) being done by the Hysterians to “prove” the sky is falling. This is commonly known as Junk Science. We saw one climate model in which the temperature was held constant while the CO2 concentration was arbitrarily doubled, a brilliant erasure of the laws of physics.
The ultimate “judge” at present is the press. Fortunately for the Junk Scientists, the scientifically illiterate reporters and other popular journalists are quick to grab anything that calls for change, change, change ( does that have a familiar ring to it?). Since most of the press, ranging from our local folks to the New York Times, tend to showcase the Junk Science and suppress the empirical results, the equally science illiterate public gets only one side of the story, and they, in turn, quickly organize mass demonstrations calling for change, change, change. Presumably, if you march enough protest signs around the country, the Laws of Physics will bend to your will.
There’s Big Bucks to be made promoting the hoax. Take a look at this clipping from a “green” directory site:
|Great News!! We now have a 34 ACRE NURSERY SITE underway in Maine with a wood and solar heated greenhouse for tree seedling production. This will enable us to grow out millions of seedlings for transplanting to deforested areas across the north woods.If you would like to DIRECTLY OFFSET YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT there is a PAYPAL DONATION button under the picture. ANY AMOUNT will help further the CO2 Reduction project!! Thanks!!|
Editors Note: We have an even better offer: For every 10 bucks you send us, we will hold our breath for one full minute before exhaling the CO2 into the atmosphere. This “carbon offset” will make you feel good about driving your Hummer to the next Global Warming demonstration.
“Climate Science” has become the new gold mine for research funding. Any funding grant application today had better have the words “Global Warming” in it somewhere if you want to rise to the top of the pile when the money is handed out. Spending on “climate research” has skyrocketed from $175 million to $5 billion annually, and you’d better make sure your “results” support AGW, or the Leprechaun will get away and your pot of gold will vanish. “Peer Review” has generally become a laugh, as the Hoaxters now all review each other’s work, and the cash register keeps ringing. A huge proportion of the “climate scientists” now at work weren’t even interested in the subject a few years ago, and it’s a bandwagon playing the new pop tune of “Ca-Ching, Ca-Ching”. The Hoaxters now control many of the science journals, and are suppressing any honest research that exposes what John Coleman, founder of The Weather Channel, has called “the greatest scam in history”. In writing this editorial, we of course automatically become “deniers”, the heathens of physics who haven’t converted to the new religion of global panic. It’s now 100% honorable to fake your results, because keeping a paycheck is a most honorable pursuit. It’s now critically important to keep the hoax afloat, for if the public ever finds out global warming is a purely natural phenomenon, the money will dry up in a heartbeat, because no government wants to waste money on something man can’t possibly change.
Recently, several NASA scientists have resigned in protest of the bureaucrats who run the agency supporting Junk Science in order to secure more funding for climate-related satellite systems and other “research”. And scientists who speak out too loudly against the hoax have actually been fired for crossing paths with the politicians promoting Junk Science, as recently happened to University of Washington climate scientist Mark Albright, who was dismissed from his position as associate state climatologist, just weeks after exposing false claims of shrinking glaciers in the Cascade Mountains. Seems Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels claimed the Cascade glaciers were melting, and Albright, in charge of the glacier studies, said they weren’t. Nickels had enough clout to get Albright bounced from his job.
Our public schools seem to be highly infected with what the serious climate scientists are now calling the new “religious cult” of anthropogenic global warming hysteria. No longer are teachers inviting their students to explore climate change – now they are being instructed to “make a nice poster showing how you can stop global warming”. This appears to be primarily an American phenomenon. Graduate schools in technology report their classes are mostly filled with foreign students, and U.S. Public High School students are the most science and mathematics illiterate of all developed nations. “Education” majors ( our future teachers ) have the lowest SAT scores of any college major so we are stuck in a catch 22 situation where the least qualified to teach anyone about anything are churning out mostly scientifically illiterate students who then go off to college and emerge with thousands of degrees in Art History with no job in their field waiting for them when they graduate.
|Let’s all lie to our children while we’re at itThe Down-To-Earth Guide to Global Warming
by Laurie David and Cambria GordonThis children’s book “explains” the Global Warming Hoax to English-speaking children everywhere. Here’s a textbook case ( pun intended ) of how to pull the wool over their eyes.
|Simply insert a fraudulent graph clearly showing Climate Temperature to be following CO2 levels, in the same manner as Al Gore. This is easily done by swapping the actual CO2 and Temperature graphs, as shown below.|
Then finish with the statement:”What makes this graph so amazing is that by connecting rising CO2 to rising temperature scientists have discovered the link between greenhouse-gas pollution and global warming.”
Of course, the actual data shows just the opposite – that CO2 lags, not leads temperature, and thus “proving” just the opposite.Don’t worry, the parents aren’t smart enough to detect the lie, either.
The battle now seems to have settled down as a war between two major information sources. The “mainstream media” who controls the printed word on paper ( such as the book above ) and the talking heads on TV are generally supporting the Junk Science. The Internet – last bastion of free speech and the only significant outlet for empirical science, is slowly gaining ground exposing the scam, but so far it’s pretty much an imbalanced situation, since the Junk Scientists also know how to build web sites and blogs and are doing their best to spread the panic in that media as well.
For example Richard S. Lindzen, in his paper at the 2005 Yale Center for Globalization conference clearly points to one particular pro-hoax web site calling itself “Real Climate” which tells us that it is all about “climate science from climate scientists”, featuring among others, the now universally discredited work of Michael Mann and others who were too quick to become his overnight followers. The site isn’t actually run by “scientists”, it’s actually run by Environmental Media Services, which specializes in spreading environmental junk science on behalf of numerous clients who stand to financially benefit from scare tactics through environmental fear mongering. Lindzen says, “This website appears to constitute a support center for global warming believers, wherein any criticism of global warming is given an answer that, however implausible, is then repeated by the reassured believers. A collection of stock responses for believers is also featured on Gristmill, where the Popular Journalists and mainstream media can quickly obtain a handbook for perpetuating the scam, and become instant experts on the spot.
In the end, time will be the final judge. If the ice caps don’t melt in our lifetimes ( or in 5 years, as Al Gore is predicting ) then future historians are going to have a rich trove of material on how the entire world went bonkers over a global temperature shift of a few tenths of a degree attributed to our “carbon footprint”. If New York floods during the last game of the World Series, then the Computer Modeling has won out over the Laws of Physics and at least we’ll be able to make new models which will cure cancer, end starvation, stop wars, and lower our taxes all at the same time.
Most of the best research has been performed in the last 3 years, and strongly supports the notion that CO2 plays little role in global warming. You will probably not be allowed to find this out, except in places like this. The IPCC policy writers were actually instructed to ignore the most recent and likely best information in their earlier reports to the world’s governments, and of course the Popular Journalists continue to quote the older, now debunked “science” that led to the panic in the first place. It has turned real nasty, and it is our strong feeling that much skullduggery is afoot.
One of the hallmarks of American politics is to tell a lie often enough until it magically becomes the truth. The corruption of the UN IPCC would make another long treatise in itself, but we won’t go there in this particular piece, because we don’t want to scare our children into thinking that scandals in the UN were making unwitting liars out of their teachers. Remember, the UN IPCC reports are the very foundation of the Global Warming Hysterians’ arguments. That’s where they get the “all the world’s climate scientists now agree” baloney. Scientists who disagree with the policy writers ( who are largely bureaucrats appointed by their own governments ) are ignored in the reports, a well known phenomenon. And several IPCC scientists are currently raising Cain with the IPCC policy writers to stop using their name as “agreeing” with the Junk Science IPCC reports. ( The IPCC claims that all of their member scientists and contributors approve of their phony reports, and as best we can determine at the present time, a majority probably does not).
Alec Rawls probably sums up the IPCC corruption best: “What I found interesting in the IPCC report is how blatant the statistical fraud is, omitting the competing explanation from the models completely, while pretending that they are using their models to distinguish between anthropogenic and natural warming. These people are going to hang on to their power grab until the bitter end.”
And we might be wrong. We’re pledged to good science, without any political or environmental agenda producing hasty conclusions, and this ball game is still in play. We’ve done an enormous amount of homework, and reached a preliminary opinion on the matter, and are intent on remaining politically independent in this regard. If we’re wrong, delaying immediate action will only hasten doomsday. If we’re right, then nature will take its course as it always has, and normal life will go on by adapting to climate change, rather than freaking out over a pending climate catastrophe. That’s what the Scientists’ letter to the U.N. was all about.
What can you do to further expose this Global Hoax seemingly being spread to promote radical political and environmental issues? You could start by sending the URL of this page to your friends and other “regular” folks who have no environmental ax to grind and are only seeking some realistic appraisal of the situation. This article has now been “peer reviewed” by dozens of highly qualified scientists in fields related to climate change, and there has been no fault found in our physics, chemistry, or mathematics to date. It has already “gone viral” world-wide, and has been read in 83 foreign countries at last check.
We invite Comments, but flames and rants and other childish stuff will be deleted and you won’t even get the courtesy of a reply. We do welcome comment from intelligent folk who have something original to say, but please don’t bombard us with cut-and-paste cherry-picking from climate hysteria sites on the internet, because trust us, we’ve already read all that.
We admire your tenacity in reading this all the way to the end.
