Global Warming is the equivalent of a religious belief for liberals. Barack Obama was a devoted member of this cult. Obama probably never talked to a Global Warming skeptic in his life. Most liberals surround themselves with an impenetrable wall of imbeciles. They don’t talk to engineers or competent scientists or well-informed conservatives, who might try to “confuse” them with facts.
The U. K. Daily Mail reports: “They were duped – and so were we. That was the conclusion of last week’s damning revelation that world leaders signed the Paris Agreement on climate change under the sway of unverified and questionable data.”
It may have taken the employees of the Daily Mail this long to figure out Global Warming was a hoax, but many people on the Right didn’t believe it from the start. History is full of warming and cooling periods and creating a hysterical claim that industrialization is somehow significantly altering the world’s climate never sat well with rational people. Why blame mankind and progress for everything bad that happens?
The Daily Mail goes on “A landmark scientific paper –the one that caused a sensation by claiming there has been NO slowdown in global warming since 2000 – was critically flawed. And thanks to the bravery of a whistleblower, we now know that for a fact.”
That’s another thing that has been known for years. There was a warming period that went from 1980 to 1998 and then stopped. Prior to that, there was a decade of cooling in the 1970s that had some liberals wailing about global cooling and a coming ice age. There are cycles of warming and cooling which seem to be normal for planet Earth, at least so far as we can tell from all the records ever kept over some centuries now.
If mankind and factories were to blame for global warming, then why did the earth cool down in the 1970s? The population of the world was still growing and factory pollution continued to increase, but the average global temperature went down. This period of cooling basically proves to any open-minded person that mankind’s effect on the planet is overwhelmed by random changes in the heat output from the sun.
The article continues “The response has been extraordinary, with The Mail on Sunday’s disclosures reverberating around the world. There have been nearly 150,000 Facebook ‘shares’ since last Sunday, an astonishing number for a technically detailed piece, and extensive coverage in media at home and abroad.”
“The Paris Agreement, a landmark scientific paper –the one that caused a sensation by claiming there has been NO slowdown in global warming since 2000 – was critically flawed It has even triggered an inquiry by Congress. Lamar Smith, the Texas Republican who chairs the House of Representatives’ science committee, is renewing demands for documents about the controversial paper, which was produced by America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the world’s leading source of climate data.”
This isn’t the first time the Left has been caught committing fraud to bolster their Global Warming theory so that liberal academics would get enormous government grants to study something that doesn’t exist. The first big scandal was “Climategate.”
One source notes “The Climategate scandal erupted on November 19, 2009, when a collection of email messages, data files and data processing programs were leaked from the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit (CRU) located in the UK, revealing scientific fraud and data manipulation by scientists concerning the Global Warming Theory.” The fraud involved Global Warming scientists faking data to try to pretend that Global Warming had not stopped in 1998.
Barack Obama abused his power as president pressuring NASA and NOAA to fake data to support Global Warming as noted here. If Global Warming is real, why is there so much fraud by leftists to try to prop up this theory?
Global Warming has always been a massive grab for money and power by the Left. A whole new branch of “science” dedicated to Global Warming would be created at (already liberal) universities to study this phenomenon (or to fake more data to support it). Billions of dollars of taxpayers’ money would go to fund these left-wing scientists, who would then “kick back” some of that money to liberal politicians and the circle would be complete.
The solution to “global warming” or “climate change” somehow always seems to involve a one-world socialist government regulating every aspect of human behavior and all national economies.
And yes, it’s a complete lie. “Climate change” was perched on the edge of becoming a mandatory orthodoxy along the lines of the Holocaust throughout Western society, where any expressed skepticism or disbelief would be a criminal offense. Careers have already been destroyed for questioning climate change.
Here in the U.S. we should be thankful that we finally have a sane president, Donald Trump, who isn’t part of a corrupt liberal establishment that pushes one fraud after another on the public so they can tax us more and regulate our lives even more.
