The Great Global Warming Swindle

Even after personal climate change e-mails and documents showing some climate change scientists discounting the "facts" behind global warming were leaked to the Internet, the media is still going strong, pushing the fear-mongering news that the oceans are rising, the ice is melting, and the forests could soon be disappearing! What will it take for the media to stop all this hype?

In 1997, global warming was an issue for climate scientists, environmentalists and policy wonks. Now biologists, lawyers, economists, engineers, insurance analysts, risk managers, disaster professionals, commodity traders, nutritionists, ethicists and even psychologists are working on global warming.

Maybe the media should start talking about research behind the debunking of global warming, as shown below, instead of constantly trying to scare us news that people like Al Gore want us to believe! Don't they know-  there is much more than just the tip of the iceberg!

For most of this week I like most minded people have been completely absorbed by the revelations coming from the e-mails from the Climate Research Unit at The University of East Anglia. Given the lack of reporting from the “trusted” alphabet soup of news organizations, ABC,CBS,CNN,BBC we have ourselves read the e-mails and inspected the notes in the code. My understanding is that the CRU headed by Dr Jones supplied the data in their possession to the United Nations IPCC to support the UN goal of implementing Cap and Trade legislation on the whole world in order to combat a man made contribution to the destruction of the world. A “if we do not act quickly there is no hope scenario” much like the financial bailouts No Time to Think Trust Us This is TOO BIG TO FAIL!  Trust is what the e-mails from the CRU speak to and manifest. How can I trust the data used to create the theory that Global Warming was man made and not influenced more by an object 93 million miles away that constitutes 99% of the mass of the solar system and in which we live, in its  “atmospheric influence”, recognizing that it only takes 8 min for the warm to reach us. All we ever asked for was Show Us the Math!, well we have seen the math and we have seen collusion, and we have seen stifling of criticism or inspection, and we have seen the trick of adding real temps where your code fails so that anyone else that has records from 1961 on cannot refute your algorithm, and we have seen willful and criminal misuse of US taxpayers money (Roger’s missed trip and all the stuff you did not buy that US hardworking and suffering taxpayers paid for through the NOAA), and we have seen the deliberate destruction of evidence in the face of Freedom of Information Act requests. I am more concerned about what we have not seen. I have not seen or heard a peep from Al Gore. I still see the President of the United States prepared to agree to putting a greater burden on the US taxpayer in the now unfounded belief that somehow man was responsible for this last period of warming that certainly ended more than 10YEARS AGO! Hide the decline my great-mother! I as a law abiding tax paying citizen of the United States Demand a Federal Investigation of this matter Climategate!

There remains a large and dangerous gulf between scientists’ concern about climate change and public understanding. Skeptics speak of the “scientific consensus" as though it is a consensus of opinion, when it is not. The National Academies of Science of 13 nations call for action based on a consensus of conclusions from almost 200 years of research. We ignore this knowledge at our great peril.

The concept of global warming was proposed in 1896 based upon physical principles discovered earlier in the 19th Century. The objective skepticism that is the heart of the scientific process has tested and refined this scientific understanding, and its predictions continue to be verified by observations.

Previous generations of scientists predicted that carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels were building up in the atmosphere, trapping heat, and warming the earth. That these gases trap heat is basic physics. It is why Venus is hotter than Mercury, though Mercury is closer to the sun. Air bubbles preserved in ancient ice sheets prove we have boosted carbon dioxide concentrations way beyond levels seen in the last 800,000 years. This has altered the Earth’s energy balance, as documented by air and ocean temperature changes, reduction in ice mass, and increase in sea levels.

Science now predicts more dangerous and costly changes in coming decades.

The predicted rise in global average temperature by a few degrees will be accompanied by serious and painful impacts to civilization, including changes in water distribution, more forest fires, acidification of the ocean, more frequent extreme weather events, and altered distribution of pests and diseases. These changes will cause vast economic and humanitarian consequences, including mass migrations, threatening U.S. national security.

In a time in which public understanding could not be more important, we keep retreading old, disproven ideas. Claims of "no global warming in the last ten years" are deceptive creations of a temperature record starting in very hot 1998. The last decade was actually the hottest on record. And don't be fooled by claims the temperature record is influenced by urbanization around weather stations. Not only is this obvious impact measured and controlled for in our records, the largest temperature increases on earth are occurring in nonurban regions of the arctic and the Antarctic Peninsula.

Similarly, the oft-repeated claim of a scientific consensus for global cooling in the 1970s is not true. Although global cooling attracted much media attention, the vast majority of scientific research at the time continued to point toward planetary warming.

Some folks think that since Earth's temperature has fluctuated in the past, what we're seeing today is probably just another natural cycle. But of the causes of these cycles (variations in the Earth’s orbit, changes in solar output, and alterations of heat-trapping gas concentrations), only the latter can explain the temperature changes we are measuring.

Since carbon dioxide stays in the atmosphere for decades, our past emissions have already committed us to more climate change. Of greatest concern that we will push the earth's climate across certain tipping points after which massive and possibly rapid change is inevitable.

Fortunately, global warming is a human caused problem, with achievable solutions. Simple changes in our habits and cost effective technologies to reduce emissions are available today.

 While denial of bad news is human nature, it can be dangerous. Those who continue to deny the facts of climate science are encouraging Americans to confuse the unprecedented with the improbable, and this would be a tragic mistake with devastating consequences.
