The Global Warming Hoax Continues: Top 12 Misconceptions About
headlines have exposed some of Barrack Obama's involvement in
the global warming hoax which is now firmly one of the hottest
topics of debate in both the mainstream and alternative media
outlets around the world.
plus scientists rebuked the global warming position so defiantly
maintained by Obama and his administration's policies.
McLeods excellent article for Canada Free Press, which
she expanded from a Fox
News piece, highlights how years before he became president,
Obama helped directly fund a carbon trading exchange that will
likely play a critical role in the proposed cap-and-trade carbon
The charity was the Joyce Foundation on whose board of directors
Obama served and which gave nearly $1.1 million in two separate
grants that were instrumental in developing and launching
the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, which now calls
itself North Americas only cap and trade system
for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and projects
Obama helped fund the profiteers of the carbon taxation program
that he is now seeking to steer through Congress.
notes that The Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) has direct ties
to both Al Gore and Maurice Strong, two figures intimately involved
with a long standing movement to use the theory of man made
global warming as a mechanism for profit and social engineering.
unearthed documentary that sought to expose this agenda at its
inception is George
Hunts excellent research piece on the environmental movement.
the information unearthed concerning Obamas links to all
of this, it is not surprising that he is now pushing the cap-and-trade
carbon tax program, which in reality represents a war on the
middle and working classes.
politics and science have become dramatically entangled in the
global warming hoax. The science of climate change warming has
become more of a partisan political issue, so positions more
entrenched. Politicians and the public prefer simple and less-nuanced
messages. At the moment the politicians strongly supports carbon
emissions as the cause of global warming, to the point of sometimes
rubbishing or silencing critics.
integrity of the scientific community will win out in the end,
following the evidence wherever it leads. But in the meantime,
the effects of the political climate is that most people are
overestimating the evidence in favor of carbon emissions as
the cause of global warming.
Some people take strong rhetorical positions on global warming.
But the cause of global warming is not just another political
issue that is subject to endless debate and distortions. The
cause of global warming is an issue that falls into the realm
of science, because it is falsifiable. No amount of human posturing
will affect what the cause is. The cause just physically is
there, and after sufficient research and time we will know what
most climate experts now easily refute are some of the myths
being propogated as truths. These myths are especially parroted
by the warmists/alarmists whose mentality on dangerous CO2 levels
and its effect on the earth is nothing short of ludicrous.
1: Global temperatures are rising at a rapid, unprecedented
Accurate satellite, balloon and mountain top observations made
over the last three decades have not shown any significant change
in the long term rate of increase in global temperatures. Average
ground station readings do show a mild warming of 0.6 to 0.8C
over the last 100 years, which is well within the natural variations
recorded in the last millennium. However, the ground station
network suffers from an uneven distribution across the globe;
the stations are preferentially located in growing urban and
industrial areas ("heat islands"), which show substantially
higher readings than adjacent rural areas ("land use effects")
i.e. local heat retention due to urban sprawl, not global warming…and
it is these, 'false high' ground readings which are then programmed
into the disreputable climate models used by your favourite
enviro groups such as Greenpeace, which live up to the GIGO
acronym — Garbage In,
at it from the long term, the planet has been gradually recovering
from the Little Ice Age which ended in 1850. Our temps are in
fact right where they should be. From a short term perspective,
satellite measurements (which are far more accurate than land-based
stations) are now showing a gradual decrease in global temperatures,
and it is currently well accepted that temperatures have been
slowly falling for over a decade now.
there has been no catastrophic
warming recorded from either method whatsoever.
MYTH 2: It's never been warmer in the past.
We are in a relatively cool period and it
used to be much warmer over countless periods in the past. Even
just a few hundred years ago, the Vikings used to live in parts
of Greenland without snow, and vineyards flourished in the North
of London! There is nothing apocalyptic about warmer temperatures,
in fact it's quite the opposite. In the UK, every mild winter
saves 20,000 cold-related deaths, and scaled up over northern
Europe mild winters save hundreds of thousands of lives each
year. ALSO, data from ice core samples shows that in the past,
temperatures have risen by ten times the current rise, and fallen
again, in the space of a human
lifetime. Nothing is happening "faster than normal" with
today's weather/climate change/temperature variations, etc.
MYTH 3: The "hockey stick" graph proves that the earth has experienced
a steady, very gradual temperature decrease for 1000 years,
then recently began a sudden increase.
The hockey stick graph seen in An
Inconvenient Truth and elsewhere has been completely
debunked and proven fraudulent. It has airbrushed out the significant
changes in climate which have continually occurred throughout
geologic time. For instance, the Medieval Warm Period, from
around 1000 to1200 AD (when the Vikings farmed on Greenland)
was followed by a period known as the Little Ice Age. Since
the end of the 17th
Century the "average global temperature" has been rising at
the low steady rate mentioned above; although from 1940 –
1970 temperatures actually dropped, leading to a Global Cooling
scare. And now the temperatures are dropping once again, in
fact they've been dropping since 1998.
stick", a former poster boy of both the UN's
and Canada's Environment Department, ignores historical recorded
climatic swings, and is proven to be flawed and statistically
unreliable as well. It has now been quietly removed from the
IPCC reports and thoroughly discredited throughout the scientific
world and is well regarded as one of the biggest scientific
hoaxes of our time, yet you can still find it being used today
by organizations such as the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, etc. The
chart is a computer construct and a very faulty one at that.
But what else would you expect, seeing as it was created only
to help perpetrate the climate change lie.
of computer generated scams, let's not forget the drowning polar
bears in Gore's movie and the fraudulent claim that the bears
are disappearing. In fact they are actually thriving. Polar
bear populations are 500% larger than they were 50 years ago.
Shame on you, Al Gore, for playing on people's emotions to drive
support for your enormous $45 trillion carbon tax hoax.
MYTH 4: Human produced carbon dioxide has increased over the
last 100 years, adding to the Greenhouse effect, thus warming
Carbon dioxide levels have indeed changed for various reasons,
human and otherwise, just as they have throughout geologic time.
Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, the CO2
content of the atmosphere has increased. The RATE of growth
during this period has also increased from about 0.2% per year
to the present rate of about 0.4% per year,which growth rate
has now been constant for the past 25 years. However, there
is no proof that CO2 is a measurable driver of global
warming, let alone the tiny amount released by humankind. As
measured in ice cores dated over many thousands of years, CO2
levels move up and down AFTER the temperature has done so, and
thus are the RESULT OF, NOT THE CAUSE of warming.
the man-made global warming theorists have put effect before
cause — this completely debunks the entire global warming
theory and shows that reducing carbon dioxide emissions is a
futile King Canute exercise! Geological field work in recent
sediments confirms this causal relationship. There is solid
evidence that, as temperatures move up and down naturally and
cyclically through solar radiation, orbital and galactic influences,
the warming surface layers of the earth's oceans expel more
CO2 as a result.
Greenhouse gases form about 3% of the atmosphere by volume. They
consist of varying amounts, about 96.5% is water vapour and clouds,
with the remainder being trace gases like CO2, CH4,
Ozone and N2O. CO2 constitutes about 0.037%
of the atmosphere. And then the human portion of that 0.037% is
MYTH 5: CO2 is the most common greenhouse gas.
But isn't CO2 the most important of the greenhouse gases? Nope.
Not even close. Most of the greenhouse effect is due to water
vapor, which is about 100 times as abundant in the atmosphere
as CO2 and thus has a much larger effect.
In summary, water vapour is by
far the most important and overwhelming greenhouse gas.
Those attributing climate change to CO2 rarely mention
these important facts.
What's next? A steam tax when you boil a kettle for your cup of
MYTH 6: Computer models verify that CO2 increases will cause
significant global warming.
The computer models assume that CO2 is the primary climate driver,
when in fact CO2 does not drive climate, and they do not take
into account the Sun, which has the most significant effect
on climate. You cannot use the output of a model to verify or
prove its initial assumption - that is circular reasoning and
is illogical. Computer models can be made to roughly match the
century temperature rise by adjusting many input parameters
and using strong positive feedbacks.
They do not "prove" anything. Also, computer models predicting
global warming are incapable of properly including the effects
of the sun, cosmic rays and the clouds. The sun is a major cause
of temperature variation on the earth surface as its received
radiation changes all the time, This happens largely in cyclical
fashion. The number and the lengths in time of sunspots can
be correlated very closely with average temperatures on earth,
e.g. the Little Ice Age and the Medieval Warm Period. Varying
intensity of solar heat radiation affects the surface temperature
of the oceans and the currents. Warmer ocean water expels gases,
some of which are CO2. Solar radiation interferes with the cosmic
ray flux, thus influencing the amount ionized nuclei which control
cloud cover. Again, models are in essence: GARBAGE IN = GARBAGE
OUT. (Maybe they should also
take note that when the Earth warms, so do other planets in
our solar system. Now please explain how CO2 can cause that?!)
is absolutely not true. Nitrogen forms 80% of our atmosphere.
We could not live in 100% nitrogen either. Carbon dioxide is no
more a pollutant than nitrogen is. CO2 is essential to life on
earth. It is necessary for plant growth since increased CO2 intake
as a result of increased atmospheric concentration causes many
trees and other plants to grow more vigorously. Unfortunately,
the Canadian Government has included CO2 with a number of truly
toxic and noxious substances listed by the Environmental Protection
Act, only as their means to politically control it. In the US,
president Obama is also trying to classify CO2 as a "pollutant"
for the same political reasons. It's really quite terrifying and
is a slap in the face to science.
7: Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is a pollutant.
8: Global warming will cause more storms and other weather extremes.
There is no scientific or statistical evidence whatsoever
that supports such claims on a global scale. Regional variations
may occur, and always do. Growing insurance and infrastructure
repair costs, particularly in coastal areas, are sometimes claimed
to be the result of increasing frequency and severity of storms,
whereas in reality they are a function of increasing population
density, escalating development value, and ever more media reporting.
Weather records clearly show there has been a decrease
in violent and extreme weather over the past century.
correlates with the cycle of solar activity, not
carbon dioxide emissions or political elections. The recent
heavy rainfall in winter and spring is a perfect example of this
— it occurred at solar maximum at a time when solar maxima
are very intense — this pattern may well repeat every 11
years until about 2045. Furthermore, the hottest and coldest days
on record occurred more than 60 years ago (before industry) and
the wackiest most extreme weather recorded over the last 100 years,
including the strongest hurricanes, and devastating droughts/floods,
all occurred in the 1940's. And guess what? They will always happen,
every year, with new records set daily. Normal.
Contrary to media
hysteria claiming increasing storm severities, scientists
have studied this issue and come to the opposite conclusion: extreme
events are becoming LESS common. Atlantic hurricanes were much
more numerous from 1950 to 1975 than from 1975 to present. Hailstorms
in the US are 35% less common than they were fifty years ago.
Extreme rainfall in the US at the end of the 20th century is comparable
to what it was at the beginning of the 20th century. Also, there
is much empirical evidence to suggest that when global warming
does happen from time to time, more warmth generally leads to
a more stable climate with less weather extremes. Once
again, the greenies got it backwards.
MYTH 9: Global warming must be real since governments are trying
to cover it up and I see protests all the time!
FACT: It's exactly the opposite.
Governments everywhere are not only active supporters of the climate
change lie, they are promoters
of it. And they've done an absolutely brilliant job of it by easily
convincing the world's alarmists and Earth-conscientious citizens
of an impending catastrophe, thereby utilizing the protesters
and subsequent immense political pressure to push through the
very policies they aspire to implement on all of us. Governments
have learned the power of activism ever since the days of the
revolution, and they've managed to use it to their advantage.
Extremist environmentalists have been duped into becoming a tool
for the very governments they believe they're "fighting" against.
A recent example of this was the declaration by Al Gore and James
Hansen which encouraged activists to consider civil disobedience
to stop the construction of new coal power plants.
In defense of many environmentalists and "cause-jumpers", quite
often they simply do not know any better but are actually well
MYTH 10: Receding glaciers, the calving of ice shelves, and
the shrinking of snow on Mt. Kilimanjaro
are proof of global warming.
Glaciers have been receding and growing cyclically
for hundreds of years. Recent glacier melting is a consequence
of coming out of the very cool period of the Little Ice Age.
Ice shelves have been breaking off for centuries. Scientists
know of at least 33 periods of glaciers growing and then retreating.
It’s normal. Besides, glacier's health is dependent as
much on precipitation as on temperature. What you see on your
television newscasts are images of the annual summer melt off,
which happens every single year and is nothing to worry about.
is not melting Mt. Kilimanjaro's alpine glacier. Temperatures
at Mt. Kilimanjaro have been slightly cooling since at least the
middle of the twentieth century, and those temperatures virtually
never rise above freezing. Scientists have long known that deforestation
at the base of the mountain is causing the mountaintop glacier
to shrink, by reducing the moisture and resultant precipitation
in mountain updrafts.
MYTH 11: The earth’s poles are warming; polar ice caps
are breaking up and melting and the sea level rising.
The earth is variable. The western Arctic may be gotten somewhat
warmer last century, due to unrelated cyclic events in the Pacific
Ocean, but the Eastern Arctic and Greenland are getting colder.
And now the western Arctic is cooling again. The small Palmer
Peninsula of Antarctica is getting warmer, while the main Antarctic
continent is actually cooling. Ice
thicknesses are increasing
both on Greenland and in Antarctica.
monitoring in the Pacific (Tuvalu) and Indian Oceans (Maldives)
has shown no sign of any sea level rise.
There are literally tens of thousands of signatures from scientists
worldwide on many petitions, ranging from the Oregon
Petition Project, the Manhattan
Declaration, all the way to the Leipzig
Declaration which all state that there is no evidence for
the man-made global warming theory nor is there any impact from
mankind’s activities on climate. Many scientists are now
against Al Gore and the IPCC and strongly believe that the
Kyoto agreement is a total waste of time, expensive, dangerous
and one of the biggest political scams ever perpetrated on the
public … as H L Mencken said "The fundamental aim of practical
politics is to keep the populace alarmed, and hence clamorous
to be led to safety, by menacing it with an endless series of
hobgoblins, all of them imaginary" … the desire to save
the world usually fronts a desire to rule it. Of the scientists
who support the climate change theory, many are on payrolls of
government agencies and others are simply securing their funding.
The consensus is clear: Man-made climate change is a hoax.
MYTH 12: There are only a tiny handful of maverick scientists
who dispute that man-made global warming theory is true.
several motives for the media and politicians to lie to you about
global warming, aside from money and control.
~The media sells more papers, magazines, and television ratings
soar when their audience is scared of some imminent catastrophe
your respective service is reporting on. Although, they can't
decide whether we're going to burn to death, freeze to death,
or drown. http://epw.senate.gov/speechitem.cfm?party=rep&id=263759
~Environmental organizations and some scientists will lie to you
because their funding depends on it. If theres no crisis to work
through, then they start losing funding. This is well
~Foreign countries are lying to us (by means of the IPCC) because
they wish to throw a monkey wrench into the inner workings of
western economies, which are the strongest in the world. If our
economy slows down, the economic standing of other countries improves
because we will no longer dominate the markets.
~Development and industrialization of third world countries will
be stamped out, along with hundreds of millions of lives, all
under the guise of "saving the planet from climate change". It's
absolutely sickening. So, who's really on the "immoral" side?
Us or the alarmists?
~Wanna talk about new taxes and restricted freedoms? Try carbon
taxes on everything and strict regulations for everyone....all
coming soon by convincing you that CO2 & greenhouse gases
are somehow evil and you must pay to emit them. Too bad they can't
tax the oceans since they are the cause of 96.5% of all greenhouse
emissions, naturally, eh! Also too bad they can't go back in time
and tax the dinosaurs since CO2 levels were MUCH higher back then
and it must have been their fault.
The motives for deception are
there. Do your part to fight alarmism!
