Multi-Billion Dollar Global Warming Fraud
By Alan Caruba

As the massive global warming fraud implodes, the one aspect of it that
has not been explored in depth is the equally massive waste of billions
of dollars spent by the United States and nations around the world, we
were told, to avoid global warming.
Whole industries such as automobile manufacture had demands and limits
put on them. Some states required utilities to buy “carbon credits” to
offset their use of “fossil fuels.” The list of things attributed to
global warming expanded to the point of total absurdity.
The data to support the fraud came out of the UN Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change (IPCC) that specialized in distorting climate data in
every way possible to emphasize a normal warming cycle and then to
minimize any indication of a new cooling cycle dating to around 1998 or
The IPCC data...purporting to be the
work of some 2,500 scientists from around the world, were actually based
the handiwork of a few academic centers such as the Climate Research
Center (CRU) at East Anglia University in England, Penn State
University, the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder,
Colorado, and climate modeling from the Lawrence Livermore National
Laboratory in California.
Other participants in the fraud were NASA’s Goddard Institute and NOAA,
both of whom produced claims, predictions, and questionable data to
support “global warming.”
In the U.S. alone, I have heard figures in the area of $50 billion that
have been spent on “climate change” over the course of administrations
dating back to Clinton. In England, between 2006 and 2008, the
government spent the equivalent of nearly $14 million (U.S.) on
publicity stunts to convince Brits that global warming was real.
It is legitimate to ask if global warming has not in effect been a
The cost of accepting this commitment is measured in several ways, not
the least of which was the sale of “carbon credits” to utilities and to
industrial enterprises that would permit them to function outside the
limits imposed. The exchanges created for this purpose prospered but it
increased the cost of providing electrical energy and the manufacture of
all manner of products.
The limitations, however, did not apply to either China or India, both
of which were exempted, as were undeveloped Third World nations.
The climate change fraud also affected major U.S. corporations, none of
whom wanted to appear to be opposed to it. However, on Tuesday, February
16th, BP America, Conoco Phillips, and Caterpillar all announced they
were dropping out of the Climate Action Partnership that advocated
At this point, any corporation that speaks of “climate change” in its
advertising and other public statements is part of the global fraud that
originated in the United Nations Environmental Program.
The carbon emissions limitations also served to justify huge public
subsidies for U.S. producers of wind and solar energy, called “clean”
energy. Several nations, such as Spain, Germany and Great Britain,
invested heavily in these alternative energy sources only to discover
that they were massively inefficient and unreliable.
At the same time, the global warming fraud in the United States limited
the building of coal-fired plants to generate electricity when, in fact,
coal provides 50% of the nation’s electricity needs. Combined with fears
of nuclear energy dating back to the 1970s, the United States has
essentially starved itself of the energy it needs.
This constitutes a form of energy and economic suicide!
In essence, the IPCC reports were all fraudulent and all were used to
advance the global warming fraud. That is why President Obama’s claim of
“overwhelming evidence” of climate change, i.e., global warming is
It is essential to understand that the “Cap-and-Trade” legislation
passed by the House and waiting for a vote in the Senate is based on the
IPCC reports and the threat by the Environmental Protection Agency to
begin regulating carbon dioxide emissions throughout the nation have no
legitimate basis in science.
It’s long passed the time when the nation’s news media should stop
referring to it as anything other than a fraud perpetrated on the people
of the world.
