In our April 12 editorial, “The global warming hoax,” we said global warming is the greatest hoax every perpetuated on mankind.
Referenced today in letters to the editor, the hoax is mankind is responsible for global warming. That is false. The sun determines our naturally occurring climate cycles.
Beginning in the 1960s, global warming predictions, have been wrong for decades.
Realizing in May 2014 that the public recognized global warming as fraud, the environmental elites mutated the phrase into “climate change.” Thinking this was smart because climate change politicizes weather, man-made global warming is now glorified political propaganda.
Echoing that with an admonition, The Wall Street Journal said “The climate may change but one thing that never does is the use of climate change as a political wedge.”
Climate change occurs daily and will continue as long as Earth exists. It’s weather.
The pseudo-scientific sales pitch of global warming has morphed into the lie that we have 12 years to reverse man-made global warming or face a catastrophic doomsday.
Quoting the far left magazine ThinkProgress, the editorial said researchers at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research found “Current C02 levels of 410 parts per million were last seen on Earth three millions years ago.” Preceding fossil fuel automobiles, airplanes and electricity, climate change fluctuations are not anthropogenic — man-made.
American Thinker columnist Todd Royal noted, “A recent study reported in the peer reviewed ‘Organization Studies’ found that just 36% of earth scientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a climate change crisis. A majority of the 1,077 respondents in the survey believe that nature is the primary cause of recent GWCC (global warming/climate change).”
Asking why this information hasn’t been widely reported, he said: “The media ignore a petition on the internet signed by more than 31,000 scientists, including 9,029 Ph.D.’s, 7,157 with a master’s of science, and 12,715 with a bachelor of science degree, all of whom dispute the global warming thesis.” He cites many other disputative facts refuting man-made global warming too numerous to report here.
Carrying the water for the left wing political environmental slant, global warming dominates the political news in the compliant media as the issue du jour. And why not?
Those who disagree, particularly those in academia, are ridiculed and find their freedom of speech shut down and negated and their grants cut off. Either they hew to the global warming dictum or face purgatory.
The hype is now being used to justify the illegal alien invasion of the U.S., saying global warming has caused this. Which is another lie.
Other than the fulminations of Democrat socialist New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez, given to such idiocies, what evidence exists of the catastrophic claim of man-made global warming?
Global warming is a money machine fueled by politicians and scientists milking the money trough. Curbing global warming is all about climate cash, about the redistribution of wealth, taking wealth from rich nations and distributing it to Third World nations.
Investor’s Business Daily pointed this out in March 2016, quoting Ottmar Edenhofer, former chairman of the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Working Group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008-2015.
“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmentally policy,” he said. “This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole.” The goal of environmental policy is to “redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.”
In 2015 Christina Figueres, executive secretary of the U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, said: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development development model for the first time in human history.”
The plan is to allow Third World countries to emit as much carbon dioxide as they wish because as Mr. Edenhofer said, “in order to get rich one has to burn coal, oil or gas.”
The design of global warming alarmists is to choke economic growth in developed nations because achieving socialism is paramount.
At the December 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, from which President Trump wisely withdrew the United States, leaders of nearly 200 nations pledged to cut emissions of carbon dioxide over the 10 to 15 years to avert a total temperature rise of only 0.306º Fahrenheit, or 0.018º Celsius by 2100.
The cost was roughly $1 trillion a year in global gross domestic product, which would cause a lower standard of living and continued deepening poverty in Third World nations. To offset that, “rich countries were to fund poorer nations to help them cut emissions and adapt to global warming.”
Which is nonsense. National Academy of Sciences President Dr. Ralph Cicerone has said there is no evidence of a catastrophic claim of man-made global warming.
We acknowledge climate change. We’ve had it ever since creation, time immemorial. It’s called weather.
