- From the earliest days the global warming “theory” was proposed I knew
that it was a complete hoax.
It never made any
sense to me that an element of the earth’s atmosphere, carbon dioxide
that measured an infinitesimal 0.0389%, could have an effect on the
planet’s climate. Just one of the so-called “greenhouse gases”, water
vapor—clouds—is 51 times greater than CO2.
Moreover, not one single
computer model can factor in the effect clouds have on the planet’s weather
because not one single meteorologist, living or dead, has a clue why they do
what they do. They appear and disappear in the very definition of chaos. So it
struck me as odd that all the computer models of the advocates of global warming
always came to the same conclusion; it’s coming and the earth's temperature will
rise dramatically IF…
IF is the key word that global warming advocates, now called “warmists”, kept
saying. If you don’t stop using coal and oil for energy, we’re doomed. If you
don’t reduce your personal “carbon footprint”, we’re doomed. If we don’t
immediately start using ethanol, wind and solar power, we’re doomed.
Beyond IF came an endless avalanche of claims that global warming was altering
or affecting every single natural phenomenon in the world. The claim was that
glaciers were melting. Polar bear populations were disappearing. Hurricanes were
increasing. The seas were rising. Eventually, just about everything happening
anywhere was blamed on global warming.
Follywood and the mass media signed onto this absurdity, ignoring the science
involved and the most obvious fact that an entirely natural cooling cycle began
in 1998 and continues to this day. The worst of it, however, was a
combination of the way the government and the nation’s educational system became
parties to this massive fraud. And still are!
The EPA claim that it has the authority to
regulate CO2 is a pure lie and it is based on the global warming lie.
Ultimately, however, not one "warmest" ever once pointed to the single greatest
factor in the earth’s climate, the sun.
All this brings me to a new book, “Slaying
the Sky Dragon: Death of the Greenhouse Gas Theory”,
by eight co-authors, contributors whose expertise ranges across climatology,
meteorology, physics, and mathematics, along with an expert in the legal aspects
of the hoax. All have been derided as “deniers” and “skeptics.”
I know several of them as Internet friends, I count Hans Schreuder, Joseph A.
Olsen, and John O’Sullivan among the many people who have helped me, over the
years, to understand the complexities of climate science.
This book is not light reading. Indeed, if you don’t come equipped with an
understanding of physics, for example, some chapters will remain beyond your
grasp. And mine! Happily, most is easily comprehended. In sum, it is a damning
condemnation of the great hoax of the modern era, perhaps the greatest hoax
since the bogus economic theory of communism.
Real science is not arrived at by “consensus.” Real scientists actually seek to
disprove the findings of other scientists until they cannot be disproved,
affirming them finally as accurate.
Real science can be corrupted in the same way as other aspects of society can
be. For me, the real crime of global warming is the way governmental agencies,
beginning with the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change,
deliberately falsified data, mostly based on computer models, to underwrite the
global warming fraud. That is also what NOAA, NASA, and the EPA, have done, to
name just three.
Now add in billions of dollars lavished on “climate research” conducted on
university campuses from coast to coast. There were exceptions. Some
university-based scientists disputed the bogus research and some were threatened
with the loss of their jobs. The other crime involves the corruption of formerly
respected science journals and general science-related media such as National
I have used the words “hoax” and “fraud” interchangeably, but the latter refers
to the way global warming was never about the climate and all about a handful of
people becoming quite wealthy by setting up exchanges to buy and sell bogus
“carbon credits” mandated by governments in order to emit CO2 in the normal
process of manufacturing production and other applications.
Others have cashed in building solar and wind farms, or became producers of
ethanol. None of these ventures would survive without government mandates
requiring their use.
The Cap-and-Trade Act is one such fraud and is currently in the U.S. Senate’s
political dead zone, hopefully to never be enacted. It is the global warming
equivalent of Obamacare; the death of thousands of jobs and the economy.
I recommend you read “Slaying the Sky Dragon” as the definitive answer to more
than twenty years of global warming lies.
