Jul 11 - The most surprising thing about the current heat wave affecting much of
the United States is that no global warming charlatan is claiming that it is the
result of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Since the late 1980s, Americans were
assailed with the global warming hoax until, in November 2009, the release of
emails between the trolls ginning up false “climate models” were exposed.
These days the term “climate change” is used as a substitute for “global
warming”, but fewer of us are fooled by this. Al Gore is planning a last-ditch
effort in September to revive the hoax, but that will fail.
Even those in the mainstream media are too embarrassed to report the absurd
notion that CO2, a trace gas in the Earth’s atmosphere (0.0380%) vital to all
vegetation on the planet has anything to do with climate cycles. A new cooling
cycle that kicked in around 1998 is the predictable result of less solar
This is not to say it’s not hot. Heat waves are as common to summer months as
blizzards are to winter ones. For those who possess the memory of fungus, there
was a heat wave that engulfed the East Coast from July 4 through 9th in 2010.
Weather records reflect that heat waves are a natural event, often following or
preceding record setting cold waves.
While Al Gore and the last holdouts of the global warming hoax continue to tell
us that CO2 emissions (the use of fossil fuels for energy to produce
electricity, drive anywhere, and manufacture anything) will destroy the world,
the world’s most sophisticated particle study laboratory, CERN in Geneva,
Switzerland, will soon announce a finding that will blow the CO2 nonsense to
Dennis T. Avery of the Hudson Institute, reports CERN has demonstrated “that
more cosmic rays do, indeed, create more clouds in the earth’s atmosphere.”
Cosmic rays are subatomic particles from outer space. More clouds means that
less of the sun’s warmth reaches the Earth’s surface.
This completely overturns the torrent of lies that the UN’s Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change has been churning out for decades. The IPCC’s scientists
went into full panic mood as a new cooling cycle asserted itself in 1998.
As Avery points out, the IPCC scientists had deliberately ignored “the Medieval
Warming (950-1200 AD), the Roman Warming (200 BC-600BC) or the big Holocene
Warmings centered on 6,000 and 8,000 BC.” There was also a Little Ice Age from
1300 to 1850 to account for as well.
While the global warming crowd has been telling everyone that they must stop
burning coal, using oil or natural gas, and “reduce our carbon footprint”, a
recent volcanic eruption in Iceland, in just four days, negated every
government-mandated effort to control or reduce CO2 emissions worldwide for the
past five years! When Mt. Pinatubo erupted in 1991, it put so much smoke and
other gases in the atmosphere that it cooled the Earth’s temperatures for a few
years until they dissipated.
Meanwhile, the Environmental Protection Agency is frantically issuing new rules
and regulations to reduce the CO2 emissions from utilities and manufacturing
facilities before the public realizes that its actual goal is to kill the U.S.
economy by increasing the cost of electricity and everything else. It is
insanely trying to shut down the mining of coal, while other elements of the
Obama regime are trying to stop any drilling for oil.
Unable to scare everyone with the global warming hoax, new horrors are being
invented, from ocean acidification to the claim that the atmosphere is being
overloaded with nitrogen. Relax, there’s four times more nitrogen in the
atmosphere than oxygen and it’s no big deal.
