Mar 11 - (Excerpts) - Have you noticed that you rarely hear “global
warming” mentioned on radio or television and the term rarely occurs any
more in the print media?
One reason is that it has been replaced with “climate change” and the
other reason is that the only people talking about climate change seem
to be leaders of governments like the United States or Australia.
The end didn’t begin until November 2009 and the release of thousands of
“Climategate” emails between the meteorologists supplying the bogus data
that the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
used to generate the greatest hoax of the modern era.
Not since the discovery of the “Piltdown Man” had so many scientists
allowed themselves to be taken in by a complete fabrication; one based
entirely on falsified computer model data. Worse still, many climbed on
board the global warming bandwagon to reap some of the billions in grant
The fact that “global warming” was generated by the United Nations
should have been the red flag that something was not just wrong about
it, but that it hid an agenda aimed at Western industrialized nations.
I think global warming gained credibility as much from the support of
the leaders of Western nations as from the great difficulty skeptical
scientists encountered in gaining any traction against it. To this day
President Obama still prattles on about the need for solar and wind
power to replace fossil fuels in order to avoid “climate change” from
The current Prime Minister of Australia is busy trying to impose a
carbon tax on that nation. The British have dug themselves a deep hole
by embracing windmills instead of coal mines. Billions have been wasted
by Spain and Germany on alternative energy sources.
The anti-energy agenda will have devastating affects on life in the
West. Electricity consumers in the United Kingdom were recently told by
the CEO of the country’s grid operation that, by 2020, they will have to
get used to having no electricity for periods during the day and night.
This will put the U.K. on par with North Korea. And the U.S. is not far
behind if it does not quickly reverse current energy policies.
In the U.S., the leading voice for “global warming” became the former
Vice President Al Gore who, following his defeat for the presidency, set
about becoming a multimillionaire with all manner of “global warming”
projects and enterprises. He would eventually win an Oscar for his
documentary and a Nobel Peace Prize that was shared by the IPCC. Today,
however, Al Gore is a joke.
The legacy of “global warming” has been the decades-long attack on U.S.
energy sources until today our vast resources of coal and oil remain in
the ground instead of being available as the price of oil increases due
to troubles in the Middle East and the cost of electricity increases due
to laws mandating that utilities must buy from wind and solar
electricity producers who would be out of business by next week without
those government mandates.
The public acceptance of the “global warming” hoax has waned even as the
mainstream media has tried to hide the truth. The rise of the Internet
has seen to that and other more pressing, real challenges are shoveling
dirt onto its grave. 9/11 refocused public attention on a real threat.
The 2008 financial crisis still holds the nation in its grip.
And a President whose first two years have generated massive resistance
now only occasionally references “climate change.”
The global warming corpse is not quite dead, but dead enough for now.
The question is what new fraud will the United Nations and environmental
organizations perpetrate? The “acidification” of the world’s oceans?
“Species extinction” or “Invasive species”? Be assured, the UN mafia is
at work on something.
