A compilation of information and references clearly showing just cause for any clear-minded person to recognize that the ‘climate change’ alarmist program is built on propaganda, political agendas and some very shaky science.

Turning Science on its head.
The steps of the Scientific Method:
- Hypothesis. Propose a hypothesis. …
- Experiment. Design and perform an experiment to test your hypothesis. …
- Data/Analysis. Record observations and analyze what the data means. …
- Conclusion. Conclude whether to accept or reject your hypothesis.
However, although temperature increases before CO2 in every single record, the UNFCCC/IPCC started out with the hypothesis that human CO2 was driving temperatures upward.
How did this come about?
In 1972, Club of Rome issued a report: Limits to Growth (pdf –link)
Limits to Growth stated that:
- the battle to feed the population is over;
- four billion people….would perish from famine in the 1980s;
- In ten years (eg ~1980) all important animal life in the sea will be extinct
Maurice Strong in the opening speech at Rio 1992 Earth Summit said, inter alia:
Agenda 21 is the product of an extensive process of preparation at the professional level and negotiation at the political level. It establishes, for the first time, a framework for the systemic, co-operative action required to effect the transition to sustainable development. And its 115 programme areas define the concrete actions required to carry out this transition.
Destruction of Capitalism
Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialised nations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about? Note the similarity to (then) UNFCC chief Christiana Figueres in February 2015: (link)
Our aim is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.
and a similar comment from Naomi Klein in her book This changes Everything:(link)
Forget everything you think you know about global warming. The really inconvenient truth is that it’s not about carbon—it’s about capitalism. The convenient truth is that we can seize this existential crisis to transform our failed economic system and build something radically better.
and a similar comment from Ottmar Edenhofer, lead author of the IPCC’s fourth report. Speaking in 2010:
“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. Instead, climate change policy is about how we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth.”(source)
The First Global Revolution: Club of Rome’s 1991 Report
An inconvenient truth – this now has been deleted
The document The First Global Revolution – Club of Rome’s 1991 Report has been deleted.
Before deletion, on P75:
In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages famine and the like would fill the bill. In their totality and their interaction these phenomena do constitute a common threat which must be confronted by everyone together. But in designating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into a trap, which we already warned readers about, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are natural processes and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy is humanity itself.
Back to Maurice Strong. Elaine Dewar wrote the book
When Elaine asked Strong why he didn’t get into politics to implement his plan to get rid of the industrialized civilisations, he said “you couldn’t do anything as a politician.”
However, he knew you needed a political vehicle to achieve your goal and he chose the UN as his political vehicle.
There is much background on Maurice Strong in Elaine Dewar’s interview with the Corbett Report.
(Strong) also described his situation at the UN, he loved working at the UN because he said he had more unfettered political power at the UN than any Canadian cabinet ministry, even a Prime Minister would have. He was able to fund his own office, he was able to fund his own officials, he could do it without being audited, he could move money here, there, and everywhere without anybody asking him any questions, I mean, he had unfettered power. And he also described the UN system as an open leaky ship in which everybody was watching everybody else.
Strong set up the bureaucratic structure to control the political and scientific agenda.
At the Stockholm 1977 UN Conference on the Human Environment Strong achieved three goals:
- Declaration on the Human Environment;
- Action Plan
- Organisation supported by the World Environment Fund (Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Sept 1972 – p17)
Although business representatives were excluded from these meetings, a body called World Business Council for Sustainable Development was set up. They participated in the Conference for Climate Change Convention which set up the original Kyoto Accord.
As Dr. Tim Ball says in “The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science,”
‘It furthered Strong’s agenda of controlling climate science through politics.’ The UNFCCC defined climate change as
‘a change of climate which is attributed directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the composition of the global atmosphere and which is in addition to natural climate variability observed over considerable time periods. (link) NOTE: the emphasis on human activity whereas a true scientific study would put natural climate variability first. (Again turning science on its head.)
IPCC turning science on its head.
First, it must be understood that the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) is NOT a scientific body. It is a political body.
The IPCC’s Summary for Policy Maker’s (SPM) is not supported by the reports. The reports might say ‘perhaps’ or ‘maybe’ whereas the SPM goes into degrees of certainty.
As Donna Lafamboise points out in her Book: The Delinquent Teenager…
Called a Summary for Policymakers, these documents are a few dozen pages in length. Now here’s the punch line: Scientists only draft these documents. The final wording is argued over, line-by-line, at those large IPCC meetings that drag on for days You heard that right: the only IPCC documents likely to be read by outsiders aren’t scientific statements at all. Before the public is permitted to see them, Summary for Policymakers documents are subject to a process of political cleansing. Were these meetings televised, most people would need witness only one of them before they lost any remaining illusions about the IPCC being a science-driven organization that produces science-based reports. But these meetings take place behind closed doors. Representatives from activist organizations are permitted to observe the proceeding – but journalists are barred.
Again this is the IPCC turning science on its head and shows demonstrably that science is NOT in the driver’s seat at the IPCC.
Michael Mann turned Science on its head.
Michael Mann’s “hockey stick” graph which, in 1998, turned climate history on its head by showing that, after 1,000 years of decline, global temperatures have recently shot up to their highest level in recorded history. The fraud in Mann’s hockeystick was exposed by McIntyre & McKitrick when they fed numbers from the Canadian phone book into Mann’s model and they produced a hockey stick.
In February 2015, Climate Scientist John Christy testified to the US senate that, comprehensive satellite data of global temperatures covering 37 years (from December 1978 to the end of 2015) demonstrated that a speculated, pronounced warming of the atmosphere from water vapor does not exist.
