The great climate change extortion racket

CanadaFreePress | Klaus Rohrich | Nov. 30, 2007

Anyone who still believes that the Kyoto Accord is about actually reducing so-called greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere is in dire need of therapy. Kyoto is now and has always been about redistributing wealth. Recent statements by countries such as Brazil and India have confirmed this to be the case as developing nations are taking the position that climate change was caused by industrialized countries and should therefore be remediated by those countries.

Weather Channel Founder: Global Warming ‘Greatest Scam in History’

ICECAP | John Coleman | Nov. 7, 2007

It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM. Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long term scientific data to create an allusion of rapid global warming. Other scientists of the same environmental whacko type jumped into the circle to support and broaden the “research” to further enhance the totally slanted, bogus global warming claims. Their friends in government steered huge research grants their way to keep the movement going. Soon they claimed to be a consensus.

The Soros Threat To Democracy

Ed. (Banescu) Soros’ propaganda machine is continuing its assault on our culture.

Investor’s Business Daily | September 24, 2007

How many people, for instance, know that James Hansen, a man billed as a lonely “NASA whistleblower” standing up to the mighty U.S. government, was really funded by Soros’ Open Society Institute , which gave him “legal and media advice”?

That’s right, Hansen was packaged for the media by Soros’ flagship “philanthropy,” by as much as $720,000, most likely under the OSI’s “politicization of science” program.

Challenge to Scientific Consensus on Global Warming: Analysis Finds Hundreds of Scientists Have Published Evidence Countering Man-Made Global Warming Fears

earthtimes.org | Hudson Institute | September 12, 2007

WASHINGTON, Sept. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — A new analysis of peer-reviewed literature reveals that more than 500 scientists have published evidence refuting at least one element of current man-made global warming scares. More than 300 of the scientists found evidence that 1) a natural moderate 1,500-year climate cycle has produced more than a dozen global warmings similar to ours since the last Ice Age and/or that 2) our Modern Warming is linked strongly to variations in the sun’s irradiance. “This data and the list of scientists make a mockery of recent claims that a scientific consensus blames humans as the primary cause of global temperature increases since 1850,” said Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Dennis Avery.

Cool It – Interview with Bjorn Lomborg

Townhall.com | Bill Steigerwald | August 13, 2007

Cool It: The Skeptical Environmentalist’s Guide to Global Warming by Bjorn Lomborg (Knopf)

“Cool It” is not the first book Denmark’s Bjorn Lomborg has written about global warming. Lomborg’s heretical 2001 best-seller, “The Skeptical Environmentalist,” drew a firestorm of nasty criticism and unveiled hatred from environmentalists and the global warming crowd because it said most of the bad effects of climate change have been grossly exaggerated. Named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in 2004, Lomborg — a statistician by training — believes global warming is occurring. But he also believes we should approach the problem rationally — which means not wasting all our energy and resources today on global warming’s long-run effects when there are more-pressing human-killing problems like malaria and malnutrition we should be addressing.

Alarmist global warming claims melt under scientific scrutiny

Chicago Sun-Times | James M. Taylor | June 30, 2007

In his new book, The Assault on Reason, Al Gore pleads, “We must stop tolerating the rejection and distortion of science. We must insist on an end to the cynical use of pseudo-studies known to be false for the purpose of intentionally clouding the public’s ability to discern the truth.” Gore repeatedly asks that science and reason displace cynical political posturing as the central focus of public discourse.

If Gore really means what he writes, he has an opportunity to make a difference by leading by example on the issue of global warming.

They call this a consensus?

Financial Post | Lawrence Solomon | June 02, 2007

“Only an insignificant fraction of scientists deny the global warming crisis. The time for debate is over. The science is settled.”

So said Al Gore … in 1992. Amazingly, he made his claims despite much evidence of their falsity. A Gallup poll at the time reported that 53% of scientists actively involved in global climate research did not believe global warming had occurred; 30% weren’t sure; and only 17% believed global warming had begun. Even a Greenpeace poll showed 47% of climatologists didn’t think a runaway greenhouse effect was imminent; only 36% thought it possible and a mere 13% thought it probable.

Coal Man

Wall Street Opinion Journal | Kimberly A. Strassel | May 19, 2007

There’s at least one CEO left who is not buying global warming hysteria.

WASHINGTON–Every good party has its wet blanket. In the case of the energy industry’s merrymaking for a global warming program, the guy in the dripping bedspread is a 67-year-old, straight-talking coal-mine owner by the name of Robert E. Murray.

You won’t hear many of Mr. Murray’s energy-biz colleagues mention him; they tend to avoid his name, much as nephews avoid talk of their crazy uncles. GE’s Jeffrey Immelt, Duke Energy’s Jim Rogers, Exelon’s John Rowe–these polished titans have been basking in an intense media glow, ever since they claimed to have seen the light on global warming and gotten behind a mandatory government program to cut C02 emissions. They’d rather not have any killjoys blowing the whistle on their real motives–which is to make a pile of cash off the taxpayers and consumers who’ll fund it.

Climate change skeptics say it’s hard to get heard

Reuters Jeff Mason Apr 18, 2007

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – skeptics of the seriousness of global warming complained on Wednesday of not being heard by the public or policy makers while warning governments to take a second look at the scientific consensus on climate change.

Scientists who doubt the scope and cause of climate change have trouble getting funding and academic posts unless they conform to an “alarmist scenario,” said Roger Helmer, a British member of the European Parliament, at a panel discussion on appropriate responses to rising global temperatures.

The media and global warming

Townhall.com George Will April 12, 2007

WASHINGTON — In a campaign without peacetime precedent, the media-entertainment-environmental complex is warning about global warming. Never, other than during the two world wars, has there been such a concerted effort by opinion-forming institutions to indoctrinate Americans, 83 percent of whom now call global warming a “serious problem.” Indoctrination is supposed to be a predicate for action commensurate with professions of seriousness.
