17 Nov 10 - (Excerpts) - November 20, 2009 is an important date because it was
the day that “global warming” ended. It was the day that a total fabrication, a
hoax, was revealed to be the work of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change (IPCC), aided and abetted by a vast network of governmental
and business leaders, a compliant media, and scientists who sold their souls for
grants and other funding.
It was the day that Al Gore was shown to be unworthy to share a Nobel Peace
Prize with the iniquitous IPCC, nor an Oscar for his documentary, “An
It was the day that Cap-and-Trade legislation, the largest tax ever on energy
use, was eviscerated as lacking any basis in science. The legislation proposed
to establish a “carbon credits” trade that would have enriched the
Chicago Climate Exchange created by investors that included Goldman Sachs.
Following the "global warming" hoax revelations, the Exchange would close its
doors within a year.
November 20 was the day that three thousand emails between the meteorologists at
the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, England,
specifically its director, Phil Jones, and Penn State’s Michael Mann, as well as
others involved in the hoax were made available on the Internet.
The Washington Times reported that “Obama administration climate czar Carol
Browner rejected the revelations in the email exchanges, saying “I’m sticking
with the 2,500,” referring to the IPCC climate science members. “These people
have been studying this issue for a very long time and agree this problem is
real.” This, like all the other assertions about “global warming” was a lie.
It must be noted that President Barack Obama continues to talk about “climate
change”, the term used to replace “global warming”. His administration has many
“global warming” advocates including his science advisor, Dr. John Holden, and
Secretary of Energy, Dr. Steven Chu. The
Environmental Protection Agency is engaged in securing authority to regulate
carbon dioxide and other “greenhouse gas emissions” as this is being written.
A segment of IPCC members did not support the global warming hoax and tried for
years to marshall opposition to the Panel’s findings, published in reports shot
through with baseless distortions and assertions that the Earth was heating to
an extraordinary degree. Over time, they came forth and publicly disputed the IPCC
for spreading the "global warming" hoax.
A year earlier in 2008, testifying before a congressional committee, Dr. Roy
Spencer, the principal research scientist of the Earth System Science Center at
the University of Alabama in Huntsville, said, “Despite decades of persistent
uncertainty over how sensitive the climate system is to increasing
concentrations of carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels, we now have
new satellite evidence which strongly suggests that the climate system is much
less sensitive than is claimed by the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
“The warming we have experienced in the last 100 years is mostly natural,” said
Dr. Spencer, adding that whatever warming had occurred had since been replaced
by satellite data documenting that the Earth had “not warmed for at least seven
A “little ice age” from about 1300 to 1850 was well known to meteorologists and
climate scientists.. Dennis T. Avery, the director of the Center for Global Food
Issues at the Hudson Institute, noted in April 2008 that “The Earth’s warming
since 1850 totals about 0.7 degrees C. Most of this occurred before 1940.” The
global warming hoax went into high gear in the late 1980s when no significant
warming was occurring. Avery, too, noted that “The Earth has experienced no
discernible temperature increase since 1998, nearly nine years ago.”
Following the leaked emails, on November 26, 2009, an editorial in The Wall
Street Journal concluded that “the impression left by the correspondence among
Messrs. Mann and Jones and others is that the climate-tracking game has been
rigged from the start.”
By then, however, the lies put forth by the IPCC had been debunked by a series
of international conferences on climate change sponsored by
The Heartland Institute. Participants represented many internationally
respected climate scientists.
How profitable was it for those involved? Al Gore and others are alleged to have
made millions from the now defunct Chicago-based Climate Change Exchange. The
emails revealed that CRU director Phil Jones had, since 1990, collected a
staggering 13.7 million British pounds (about #22.6 million US) in grants.
In the United States, an estimated $50 to $60 billion in government grants for
climate research had been squandered since the late 1980s when James E. Hansen,
a NASA employee, Director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS),
testified before a congressional committee claiming that a massive heating of
the Earth was occurring.
On November 20, 2009, the world began to awake from a totally fictitious
nightmare called “global warming.” It persists among those desperate to keep the
truth from reaching a world that has been duped by the largest collection of
governmental leaders, politicians, scientists, and media collaborators ever to
engage in such a Big Lie.
