Climate change myths

Interesting that the Obama Administration is desperately trying to silence the overwhelming majority of scientists in the US who disagree with the now politically driven "Global Warming" runaway train. As the following piece, taken from Hard Astarboard's blog shows, there is now a large body of evidence that shows the climate models and the media hysteria fueled by a small number of politically active and aware activists in the Greenpeace, Fiends of the Earth and similar eco-terrorist organisations are deeply flawed. In fact the data over the last ten years shows that the earth is actually cooling, not warming - something I can readily believe as I sit in the UK in mid July watching it rain and with the temperature hovering around 18*C. Even a few years ago this would have been considered unseasonal, but now the weather forecast is predicting several more weeks of this and a quick look at weather stats tells me that this is the weather we used to have in the UK in the late 1960's.

In the last few weeks Obama and his minions have rammed something called "Cap and trade" through Congress in the name of "reducing emmissions" and "saving US industry and jobs" among the usual raft of "liberal" agendas based on Socialist ideology. That it is happening in the US should worry the rest of us deeply.

Cap and trade” is first a massive indirect tax on the American people and hence another source of revenue for Congress. More importantly “cap and trade” is just about the most effective tool for controlling most economic activity short of openly declaring ourselves a communist nation and it’s a radical environmentalist’s dream come true.

So why the rush and the press on the Senate? Increasing evidence is emerging that far from there being global warming, the Earth has been cooling and has been doing so for 10 years. Prominent atmospheric scientists have recently sent a letter to Congress saying, “You are being deceived about global warming. … The Earth has been cooling for ten years. … The present cooling was not predicted by the alarmists’ computer models.” Last March, more than 700 international scientists went on record dissenting over manmade global warming claims. About 31,500 American scientists, including 9,029 with Ph.D.s, have signed a petition, that in part reads, “There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate.”

The Obama administration’s EPA sees the increasing evidence against global warming as a threat to their agenda and has taken desperate measures. About a week before the House vote on “cap and trade,” the Washington, D.C.-based Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) released some EPA e-mails, demonstrating that an internal report by Alan Carlin, a 35-year career EPA analyst, criticizing EPA’s position on global warming, had been squelched for political reasons ( One of the e-mails is from Dr. Al McGartland, director of the EPA’s National Center for Environmental Economics reads, “The administrator and administration has decided to move forward on endangerment, and your comments do not help the legal or policy case for this decision. … I can see only one impact of your comments given where we are in the process, and that would be a very negative impact on our office.”

The problem is that the "Global Warming" 'loobby' is actually falsifying the data, discarding or suppressing anything that doesn't fit their model. This is not scientific, it is fraudulent, but now that the politcians have decided there is mileage in running with it so they can push through a raft of regulations and restrictions on personal choice and liberty, its probably unstoppable. Once again the mantra is heard "Some must give up some of their privileges in order that others may prosper." Animal Farm in the 21st Century. The report can be accessed here as a *.pdf

  1. Pat,
    The Gorse Fox recommends as an excellent source of information the the BBC, the Guardian, and the government are keen that we don't find out about.
