On Global Warming

     

     President Obama seems to think global warming, um, I mean, “climate change”, is killing people; John Kerry believes it is the biggest threat the world currently faces. Liberals claim the world will end if we don’t stop global warming, that humans will not be able to survive its consequences (unless of course you are a hobbit). But thankfully we Conservatives know the truth; we know that we aren’t in any danger from “climate change” because simply put, global warming is the biggest fraud in recent history, and we have the facts to prove it.

     Take for example two years ago, in January of 2012, when the Daily Mail reported that global warming was no longer the consensus, as it was revealed that the earth had not warmed for 15 years:

The supposed ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years… Based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations, the data was issued last week without fanfare by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. It confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures ended in 1997. (1)

     The irony of this is that East Anglia University, one of the strongest proponents of global warming alarmism, is now forced to admit that global warming hasn’t happened in nearly 2 decades. And even top climate scientist Hans von Storch admitted in 2013 that over said 15 years, the earth’s climate warmed at a value close to zero:

In a June 20 interview with Spiegel Online, German climate scientist Hans von Storch said that despite predictions of a warming planet the temperature data for the past 15 years shows an increase of 0.06 or “very close to zero.” “That hasn’t happened,” Storch said. “In fact, the increase over the last 15 years was just 0.06 degrees Celsius (0.11 degrees Fahrenheit) – a value very close to zero.” Spiegel asked Storch why the Earth’s temperature has not risen significantly in the past 15 years despite 400 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) being emitted into the atmosphere from human activities.“So far, no one has been able to provide a compelling answer to why climate change seems to be taking a break,” said Storch. (2)

     Also in 2013, the UN Climate Change Chief took it a step farther, admitting that global warming hadn’t occurred in seventeen years:

THE UN’s climate change chief, Rajendra Pachauri, has acknowledged a 17-year pause in global temperature rises, confirmed recently by Britain’s Met Office, but said it would need to last “30 to 40 years at least” to break the long-term global warming trend…(3)

     Furthermore, even more scientists are now acknowledging that this “17 year pause” will actually last for another 20 years; a sentiment that seems to put to shame the idea of global warming killing us off in the next few decades:

The 17-year pause in global warming is likely to last into the 2030s and the Arctic sea ice has already started to recover, according to new research. A paper in the peer-reviewed journal Climate Dynamics – by Professor Judith Curry of the Georgia Institute of Technology and Dr Marcia Wyatt – amounts to a stunning challenge to climate science orthodoxy…The research comes amid mounting evidence that the computer models on which the IPCC based the gloomy forecasts of a rapidly warming planet in its latest report, published in September, are diverging widely from reality. (4)

     In September of 2013, The Telegraph also reported on the IPCC, and how scientists are now realizing that not only is the earth cooling, not warming, but there has been an increase in sea ice as well:

There has been a 29 per cent increase in the amount of ocean covered with ice compared to this time last year, the equivalent of 533,000 square miles. In a rebound from 2012’s record low, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores, days before the annual re-freeze is even set to begin…A leaked report to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seen by the Mail on Sunday, has led some scientists to claim that the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century. (5)

     Not to mention that the Daily Mail details how tree rings are proving global warming peddlers wrong, showing that the earth has (overall) been cooling for a lot longer than we previously thought it was:

 A study suggests the Britain of 2,000 years ago experienced a lengthy period of hotter summers than today. German researchers used data from tree rings – a key indicator of past climate – to claim the world has been on a ‘long-term cooling trend’ for two millennia until the global warming of the twentieth century…In general the scientists found a slow cooling of 0.6C over 2,000 years, which they attributed to changes in the Earth’s orbit which took it further away from the Sun. The study is published in Nature Climate Change. It is based on measurements stretching back to 138BC. The finding may force scientists to rethink current theories of the impact of global warming…In so doing, the researchers have been able for the first time to precisely demonstrate that the long-term trend over the past two millennia has been towards climatic cooling. (6)

     But not only is the science proving the scientists wrong, but we are constantly discovering the misconduct and exaggerations of both scientists and the media when it comes to the issue of “climate change.” For example, Fox reported in early 2013 that a leaked UN IPCC report showed that the agency had been overstating the issue of global warming for nearly 20 years: 

A preliminary draft of a report by the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was leaked to the public this month, and climate skeptics say it contains fresh evidence of 20 years of overstated global warming. The report — which is not scheduled for publication until 2014 — was leaked by someone involved in the IPCC’s review process, and is available for download online. Bloggers combing through the report discovered a chart comparing the four temperature models the group has published since 1990. Each has overstated the rise in temperature that Earth actually experienced. “Temperatures have not risen nearly as much as almost all of the climate models predicted,” Roy Spencer, a climatologist at the University of Alabama at Huntsville, told FoxNews.com. (7)

     Multiple reports from August and September of 2013 also show that not only has the UN been struggling to figure out why the earth hasn’t warmed in nearly two decades, but also that they were urged to cover this fact up:

Scientists working on the most authoritative study on climate change were urged to cover up the fact that the world’s temperature hasn’t risen for the last 15 years, it is claimed. A leaked copy of a United Nations report, compiled by hundreds of scientists, shows politicians in Belgium, Germany, Hungary and the United States raised concerns about the final draft…But leaked documents seen by the Associated Press, yesterday revealed deep concerns among politicians about a lack of global warming over the past few years. Germany called for the references to the slowdown in warming to be deleted…Belgium objected to using 1998 as a starting year for statistics, as it was exceptionally warm and makes the graph look flat…The United States delegation even weighed in, urging the authors of the report to explain away the lack of warming using the ‘leading hypothesis’ among scientists… (8)

     A peer reviewed study also found that the UN over-exaggerated the supposed havoc that global warming is supposed to cause:

A peer-reviewed climate change study released Wednesday by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change finds the threat of man-made global warming to be not only greatly exaggerated but so small as to be “embedded within the background variability of the natural climate system” and not dangerous…The 1,000 page study was the work of 47 scientists and scholars examining many of the same journals and studies that the United Nations International Panel on Climate Change (UNIPCC) examined, producing entirely different conclusions.“This volume provides the scientific balance that is missing from the overly alarmist reports from the IPCC, which are highly selective in their review of climate science,” the authors write (9)

     In terms of the media misinformation on climate change, in May of ’13, a Scientist had to correct a reporter on the correlation between climate change and severe weather (maybe he should also talk to congressional Democrats!): 

One such person who appears to have been influenced in this way is Los Angeles Times reporter Stacey Lessca. Fortunately for her, yesterday she received some much-needed education during an interview with a scientist working for the National Severe Storms Laboratory. After discussing some of the particulars of the recent tornado that struck Moore, Oklahoma, Lessca shifted her questioning toward environmental orthodoxy…

…“It seems like there’s been more severe weather, it seems, it just feels like hurricanes are getting worse. Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East Coast. This tornado now has killed 24 people in the town of Moore. Do you think that more severe storms are becoming the norm, and do you think that they are directly related to climate change?” Tanamachi answered that this was not the case whatsoever and that people who thought otherwise were likely being influenced by the media’s continual reporting on weather events. (10)

     Lastly, multiple high ranking officials are also feeling the heat, as the UK’s Climate Change Czar now admits that “global warming” is not caused by humans; and the EPA’s top climate expert has been charged with and sentenced to jail for 32 months for fraud (which he participated in to avoid doing his real job at the EPA). 

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; the idea of catastrophic man-made global warming is an absolute lie and one of the greatest acts of fraud perpetrated on not only the citizens of the U.S, but of other nations as well; and even though the science and scandals continue to prove them wrong, scientists and politicians continue to perpetuate the myth in order to pass their agenda and make their money (Al Gore and Lord Ron Oxburgh are two that spring to mind). The facts speak for themselves, but I think it’s time they gain our collective voice as well.
