The Great Global Warming swindle

Barbara Boxer emerging as Senate's new Al Gore

By Dr. Timothy Ball & Tom Harris

Wednesday, September 26, 2007

Barbara Boxer, Al GoreSince taking over as Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works in January, California Senator Barbara Boxer has emerged as a truly bizarre figure in the global warming debate. Making climate change the focus of committee activities, Boxer maintains that "the American people have the will to slow, stop, and reverse global warming."†

Whether such a statement is due to a genuine naivetť about climate science on Boxer's part, or is strategically crafted to take advantage of public confusion on the issue, it is an assertion she is making often.† Speaking at the National Press Club on April 14 and again in her introduction to the June 7th Senate committee hearing, Boxer promised her audience that "Working Together we can reverse Global Warming!"† The issue usually dominates her personal site, www.barbaraboxer.com, and she even includes a button, "Act Now to Stop Global Warming", on the Senate committee site (http://epw.senate.gov/public/).

US being hoodwinked into draconian climate policies

By Dr. Timothy Ball and Tom Harris

Thursday, September 13, 2007

Imagine basing a country's energy and economic policy on an incomplete, unproven theory -- a theory based entirely on computer models in which one minor variable is considered the sole driver for the entire global climate system.

This is precisely what Al Gore, U.S. Senate environment committee chairman Barbara Boxer and others want their nation to do. ††They expect Americans to accept on blind faith the thesis that human carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are causing catastrophic climate change.† Boxer, Gore and their allies readily resort to emotional bullying against anyone who dares question this dogma. Their pronouncements -- Boxer's juvenile "the American people have the will to slow, stop and reverse global warming" is a prime example - are merely displays of arrogance that expose their lack of basic science understanding (or their complete disrespect of public intelligence). The policies they advocate are wholly unjustified scientifically and have extraordinarily damaging economic implications for the developed world.

Antarctic ice grows to record levels

(By Meteorologist Joe D'Aleo)

Excerpt: While the news focus has been on the lowest ice extent since satellite monitoring began in 1979 for the Arctic, the Southern Hemisphere (Antarctica) has quietly set a new record for most ice extent since 1979. This can be seen on this graphic from this University of Illinois site The Cryosphere Today, which updated snow and ice extent for both hemispheres daily.

The Year the Global Warming Hoax Died

By Alan Caruba

Monday, September 3, 2007

When did the global warming hoax die? Historians are likely to pinpoint 2007. It will take another decade to insure it cannot be revived, but the avalanche of scientific studies and the cumulative impact of scientists who have publicly joined those who debunked the lies on which it has been based will be noted as the tipping point.

Global Warming rivals Sponsorship Scandal

By Dr. Tim Ball, Natural Resources Stewardship Project

Friday, August 24, 2007

Many years ago, I warned Henry Hengeveld of Environment Canada (EC) that, if he thought it was difficult to convince ministers and MPs that global warming was due to human carbon dioxide (CO2) production, it would be twice as difficult to change their minds once they were convinced. The theory was, and still is, unproven of course, but by adopting it so completely so early on, Hengeveld would find himself on a treadmill virtually impossible to get off. †After all, it would be very dangerous for a bureaucrat to go back to those same politicians with the message that their political positions were wrong because they were based on wrong information.

Climate change moral failings are cowardice and ignorance, not inaction

By Tom Harris, & Professor Bob Carter , Natural Resources Stewardship Project

Friday, August 17, 2007

†Virtually overnight, Portland (Maine) High School student Kristen Byrnes has become a climate change sensation and a role model for freethinking young people everywhere.† As an extra credit project for an earth science course, she created "Ponder the Maunder", an attractive website designed to demonstrate "that the Earth's warming climate is a result of natural variance and that man-made changes in the warming climate in the last 40 years are negligible at best."† After being highlighted in a number of articles in two local newspapers and on several prominent Web sites, "Ponder the Maunder" attracted over 500,000 hits in May.

A Cloudy Mystery

By Alan Caruba

Thursday, August 16, 2007

There's a reason why one should be extremely wary of the computer models that are cited by the endless doomsday predictions of Al Gore, the UN's International Panel on Climate Change, and all the other advocates of "global warming."

The reason is clouds. Computer models simply cannot provide for the constant variability of clouds, so they ignore them.

Global warming hysteria, the new eugenics

By Henry Lamb

Monday, August 13, 2007

The BP oil company ads on television are, or should be, enough to make you never buy another drop of British-Petroleum gasoline. The farmer-type guy who stands there and talks about how wonderful it would be if you could grow a crop that you could convert to fuel to put in your tractor to plant next year's crops - is disingenuous, deceptive, and disgusting.

Green Fakers: Why eco-hypocrisy matters

By Jeff Bercovici

Monday, August 6, 2007

A few weeks ago, I wrote an item about Barbra Streisand, who was on tour in England. Though she's a big backer of environmental causes, and even offers tips for low-carbon living on her personal website, she was busted by the British press for touring in a private jet with a massive entourage that required 13 trucks and vast amounts of laundry—in other words, for sponsoring a traveling CO2 extravaganza.

Society of Environmental Journalists called Global Warming Propaganda Factory

By EPW Blog

Saturday, August 4, 2007

Excerpt: In January of this year, the SEJ published what they call Climate change: A guide to the information and disinformation. The guide is neatly organized into twelve chapters. Except for the seventh chapter titled with the freighted descriptive: "Deniers, Dissenters and Skeptics", the guide is a one sided presentation that resoundingly affirms global warming and puts down anyone with a different point of view. The site is a virtual digest of the global warming industry. If you're looking for a road map to the special interest groups behind the hysteria, this is the place to go. The journalist members of this association have obviously abandoned all pretense of objectivity. The site is largely a compendium of links to global warming promoters. Many of the links use adjectives like prestigious, best respected, and reputation unrivaled to burnish their credibility. The so-called deniers on the other hand are described with adjectives like, highly polemical, outright false, and deceptive partisan attack dogs. The description of the Competitive Enterprise Institute is especially derisive, citing the often leveled false accusation that they the tool of Exxon Mobile. And this is journalism at its finest? The SEJ is supported mainly by foundation grants from many of the places that fund Bill Moyers and PBS. The remaining revenue is generated from membership dues and conference fees. American Thinker

Latest Scientific Studies Refute Fears of Greenland Melt

By EPW Blog

Tuesday, July 31, 2007

Ilulissat, Greenland – The July 27-29 2007 U.S. Senate trip to Greenland to investigate fears of a glacier meltdown revealed an Arctic land where current climatic conditions are neither alarming nor linked to a rise in man-made carbon dioxide emissions, according to many of the latest peer-reviewed scientific findings. Recent research has found that Greenland has been warming since the 1880's, but since 1955, temperature averages at Greenland stations have been colder than the period between 1881-1955.

Water Experts Find Earth's Warming, Rainfall Linked to Sun

By Dennis T. Avery, Hudson Institute

Tuesday, July 24, 2007

A team of water experts says the pattern of droughts and floods in South Africa shows our global warming was triggered by the variability of the sun's irradiance rather than by human-emitted CO2. They say variations in South African rainfall patterns are keyed to periodic reversals of the sun's magnetic field—and to the constantly changing distance between the sun and the earth as both move through space.

The price of global warming

By Henry Lamb

Monday, July 23, 2007

It is widely agreed that the global mean temperature has increased .07 degree C, over the last century. It is also widely agreed that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has increased from about 280 parts per million (ppm) to nearly 380 ppm. And there is general agreement that at least some, if not most, of the increase in atmospheric carbon is the result of humans burning fossil fuels. Here's where the agreement ends.

Climate Extremism: the Real Threat to Civilization

By Dr. Timothy Ball and Tom Harris

Friday, July 20, 2007

There is nothing particularly unusual about current weather and climate change -- it is generally well within long-term normal patterns. However, the public believes otherwise due to a combination of the way in which people have been taught to view nature, political exploitation of science and the hidden motives of environmental extremists. ††How did this happen and where are we headed if climate change hysteria continues unchecked?

Climate rhetoric does not justify bad policy

By Tom Harris & Dr. David Wojick, P.E.,

Thursday, June 28, 2007

Like the spices that have been used since ancient times to hide the flavor of spoiled meat, a liberal reference to ‘stopping climate change' has become the perfect ingredient to hide bad public policy.† Speech writers sprinkle the oratory of politicians with repeated allusion to ‘stabilizing climate' and other virtuous sounding, but impractical green rhetoric whenever they want to avoid serious debate.† Assertions of future climate crises are impossible to disprove and make even the most hard-nosed and scientifically-illiterate politician look wise and caring.††

Global Warming and its Evil Twin 'Climate Change' Predictions Wrong on Both Counts

By Tom DeWeese, American Policy Center

Wednesday, June 13, 2007

Global warming alarmists are a clever bunch. They have very carefully changed the issue from "global warming" to "climate change." Now any change in weather, be it mild winters or cool summers can be attributed to "climate change." Whatever the weather, the news is very bad.

PM's summit speech shows Parliamentarians have come full circle on climate change rhetoric

By Dr. Tim Ball and Tom Harris, www.nrsp.com

Wednesday, June 6, 2007

Echoing his environment minister's increasing assertions of future climate catastrophe, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has now labeled "the fight against climate change, perhaps the biggest threat to confront the future of humanity today."

"Obviously, if we really want to stop climate change, all the big emitters need to step up to the plate and must accept real targets," Harper told his audience at the EU-Canada Summit in Berlin on Monday. Calling the G8 meeting "the perfect opportunity -- to develop a new universal consensus on how to prevent global warming", the PM demonstrated, perhaps more than ever before, that when it comes to climate change, the extremists have won the PR war inside Canada's House of Commons.

"Stopping climate change" may be all the rage with celebrities and environmental lobbyists, but fortunately for the rest of us, the scare's scientific foundation is rapidly disintegrating.›

    The Case of Mikhail Gorbachev

    By Vasko Kohlmayer, The American Thinker

    Friday, May 11, 2007

    The most remarkable aspect of the man-made global warming claim is the lack of solid scientific evidence for it. Yet there are those whose apparent goal it is to advance this theory at all costs. Blatant in their disregard of the facts, they try to convince as many as would believe of the real nature of this alleged danger. But since this activism does not rest on scientific evidence or hard facts, it must be driven by motives other than those publicly stated.

It would also be the warning that I would forward to anyone wishing to enter the debate over the validity of man made global warming. I stepped into this discussion after watching the similarities between the scare tactics of the global warmers and what I had seen of the scientific community's certainty of global cooling back in the 1970s. When ex-vice president Al Gore started saying, in a time of war, that global warming was a more important issue for us all to focus upon than international terrorism, I placed even more focus on the issue.

    Is classroom Global Warming preaching indoctrinating the next generation?

    By Dr. Tim BallNatural Resources Stewardship Project

    Do you know what your children are learning in school about climate change? Have you ever looked at their textbooks? Is it education or indoctrination? How accurate are the facts? How much is it an ideological or a political message? Is it a balanced curriculum offering options or one imposing a singular view? How much is fear the vehicle of indoctrination?

    Do you only learn about the material when your elementary school child can't sleep because of threats of a rising sea level? Are you like the mother who told me how children at a birthday party for her seven-year-old cried when a balloon burst because they said there would be another hole in the ozone? I hear from many people about children traumatized by what they have learned in school. A British survey of children between 7 and 11 found half of them are anxious about the impacts of global warming to the point of losing sleep. At what age do we place societal or world problems on young shoulders? US TV celebrity psychologist "Dr. Phil" says emphatically, don't put adult problems on children's shoulders.

    So, approximately, goes the little ditty I learnt long, long ago. It seemed 'right' then. But now one sees the flaw in the logic. It took a while! It's a faulty premise leading to an illogical conclusion. Yet perhaps one can, in one's imagination, 'see things that aren't there'. If you really, really, want to believe someone or something you can. Just as some people believe in those that profess to talk to the dead, some folk hypnotize more easily than others, and some reckon there are UFOs. But why do they have to 'fly' and be 'objects'? It sells better - that's why.

    Global Warming? Journalism? Don't Make Me Laugh!

    By Alan Caruba

    Wednesday, February 14, 2007

    As a very young man, fresh out of college and the army in the mid-1960s, I found myself employed as a rookie reporter on a weekly newspaper in New Jersey. I had never taken a course in journalism in my life, but I could write. The managing editor of the newspaper group that serviced a number of communities taught me all I ever needed to know about journalism. He taught me to be skeptical of everything and everyone.

    The Creeping Fascism of Global Warming Hysteria:
    Man-made orthodoxy is a dogma of coercion, bias, and junk science

    By Paul Joseph Watson, Propagandamatrix.com

    Tuesday, February 13, 2007

    The hoax of the doctrine of man-made global warming that is being foisted upon the world by decree, and the junk science that is manipulated to support it, represents a creeping fascism whose agenda to stifle open debate betrays the fact that climate change hysteria is a farce intended to crush freedoms and further centralize global power.

    Cutting through the climate jargon

    Tuesday, February 13, 2007

    New Environment Minister John Baird remarked that it was unusual to not be wearing boots in January in his home town of Nepean. How true -- there aren't many back yard rinks in Eastern Ontario right now either. But it is also true that it is unusual to wear boots in Victoria where I live -- and yet that has been a necessity many times in the midst of the record cold we have been experiencing.

    Inhofe Praises Czech President's Courage in Confronting Global Warming Fears

    Climate Skeptics Vindicated as Growing Number of Scientists & Politicians Oppose Alarmism

    By EPW Blog

    Tuesday, February 13, 2007

    Washington, D.C. -- Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Environment & Public Works Committee, congratulated Czech President Vaclav Klaus for speaking out against the fears of man-made global warming. Klaus told a Czech newspaper on February 8, 2007 that fears of catastrophic man-made global warming were a "myth" and critiqued the UN IPCC process, calling it a "political body." Klaus also said other government leaders would speak out, but "political correctness strangles their voice."

    Global warming ethics, pork and profits

    Global warming alarmism generates political and financial incentives

    By Paul Driessen

    Wednesday, February 7, 2007

    The ink has barely dried on its new code of conduct, and already Congress is redefining ethics and pork to fit a global warming agenda. As Will Rogers observed, "with Congress, every time they make a joke, it's a law. And every time they make a law, it's a joke."

    U.N. Report: Humans are to Blame for Global Warming

    By EPW Blog

    Wednesday, February 7, 2007

    GIBSON: The big debate now, are humans to blame for all this extreme weather. Well that's what a new United Nations report on climate change tells us. Not only are scientists saying they believe global warming is man-made, they're also saying it's now too late, it's all unstoppable. But the global warming debate has gotten so ugly now, some people are demanding that anyone who doesn't believe in these theories of climate change should be punished. Is it a legitimate point of view to question if these extreme weather changes are really a product of man-made global warming?

    Economic suicide for Europe and the US

    Climate alarmism threatens intense pain, for no environmental gain

    Tuesday, February 6, 2007

    Europeans have worked themselves into such a lather over "climate chaos" that they've set themselves up for a head-on collision between eco-ideology and economic reality. With the new Democratic Congress poised to ram through heavy-handed climate legislation, the US may be heading down the same path.

    Should We Believe the Latest UN Climate Report?

    By Dennis T. Avery, Hudson Institute

    Tuesday, February 6, 2007

    The UN Climate Change panel is asserting—again—that humans are overheating the planet.› Again, they have no evidence to support their claim—but they want the U.S. to cut its energy use by perhaps 80 percent just in case. Stabilizing greenhouse gases means no personal cars, no air-conditioning, no vacation travel. Nancy Pelosi says one-third of the Senate want this too.›

    Global Warming: The Cold, Hard Facts?

    By Timothy Ball

    Monday, February 5, 2007

    What would happen if tomorrow we were told that, after all, the Earth is flat? It would probably be the most important piece of news in the media and would generate a lot of debate. So why is it that when scientists who have studied the Global Warming phenomenon for years say that humans are not the cause nobody listens? Why does no one acknowledge that the Emperor has no clothes on?

    Auditor General right to remove Environment Commissioner

    G»linas' environmental evangelism conflicted with her role as auditor

    Auditor General Sheila Fraser was right to dismiss her environment auditor, Johanne G»linas.› In fact, she really had no choice.› While G»linas received praise for her work from most politicians, including Environment Minister John Baird, she clearly stepped well beyond her role as auditor and assumed the mantle of activist, an approach that undermined the credibility of the Auditor General's office.

    The Weather Channel's most prominent climatologist is advocating that broadcast meteorologists be stripped of their scientific certification if they express skepticism about predictions of manmade catastrophic global warming. This latest call to silence skeptics follows a year (2006) in which skeptics were compared to "Holocaust Deniers" and Nuremberg-style war crimes trials were advocated by several climate alarmists.

    Geo-engineering to save planet

    By Klaus Rohrich

    Wednesday, December 27, 2006

    It's like one of those really bad black and white science fiction movies of the 1950s. The world is in danger of being destroyed. Particles that have mysteriously appeared in the atmosphere are heating up the planet and threatening to incinerate all life. The media is in a feeding frenzy. The populace is hysterical. Debate rages on what to do about these invasive particles; how to save the world. A thoughtful, pipe-smoking scientist conducts experiments in how to best attack the problem and in a flash of brilliance comes up with a solution: build giant cannons that fire millions of tons of an antidote into the atmosphere to reverse the impending doom. The planet is saved, life continues.

    The global warming debate has developed a pattern: In part A, a scientist makes a scary claim and gets headlines for himself, and his funding source, across the known world. In part B, a few months later new evidence blows the scary claim away—but with no press coverage of its demise.›››

    Imagine living in a world where no one is allowed to think independent thoughts or take independent actions. Only pre-approved human response would be acceptable. To break the rule and engage in forbidden thought would result in terrible retribution, perhaps leading literally to one's destruction.

    Climate McCarthyism and Eco-Inquisitions

    Censoring news and views to advance ideologies and legislation

    By Paul Driessen

    Wednesday, December 13, 2006

    Two centuries years ago, Voltaire proclaimed, "I disapprove of what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it." Today, our free speech traditions are under assault.

    Colleges prohibit "offensive" or "politically incorrect" speech. Radical Islamists threaten to kill scholars, artists and even popes who "disrespect" the Prophet. And when we desperately need unfettered scientific debate, intolerant eco-activists have ushered in an era of climate McCarthyism and eco-Inquisitions.

    The false premise behind climate change

    By Vasko Kohlmayer

    Saturday, December 9, 2006

    Energized by the latest election results, the global warming community is getting ready for a major push to stop what is referred to as climate change. Claiming that it represents a major threat to our survival, they argue for tough laws to contain the ecological calamity that is allegedly unfolding even as we speak. At the center of their legislative efforts will be Barbara Boxer, the incoming chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. A fierce environmental crusader, Ms. Boxer has already promised ‘a very long process of extensive hearings.' It is to be hoped that among the many dire scenarios that will undoubtedly be painted, someone asks this simple question:

    Can British Wine Grapes Resolve a Global Warming Question?

    By Dennis T. Avery, Hudson Institute

    Thursday, December 7, 2006

    British wine grapes are suddenly in the midst of the global warming controversy.

    Historic records tell us that Britain grew wine grapes 2,000 years ago during the Roman Warming, and 1,000 years ago during the Medieval Warming. Since 1300, however, Britain has been too cold for wine grapes.
