Democrats Hang Election Hats On Defending A LieIt takes a leader with confidence to have the resolve to take on most of the American media, as well as the Democratic Party’s relentless campaign that global warming or climate change will destroy the world in 12 years.  In one of his first decisions as President, Donald Trump took The United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement for sound economic reasons, but he also had equally compelling climatical reasons for exiting the arrangement.

The cornerstone of the Green New Deal is the belief that the earth is getting warmer because of greenhouse gases produced by man.  In 2015 Harvard Law student, Tyler Vigen published a book that contained a detailed and compelling graph which showed that over a ten-year period from 1999 to 2009, there was an undeniable correlation between the overall trend in the increasing amount of energy generated by nuclear power plants and the growing trend in the number of people drowning in swimming pools.

.

Vigen chose “Spurious Correlations” as the name for his book for good reason because although his graph showed a substantial correlation between these two events, they were completely unrelated. Seeking a remedy based on a belief that correlation equals causation can be problematic, even dangerous. Only forty years ago, scientists made catastrophic predictions that the earth was heading for life-threatening temperature drops because of air pollution.

An October 19, 2018 article in a publication from the Heartland Institute mentioned that the debate in the 1970s centered on the fear of manmade global cooling. It pointed to TIME magazine’s January 31, 1977 cover that featured a story, “How to Survive The Coming Ice Age.” where scientists were predicting that Earth’s average temperature could drop by 20 degrees Fahrenheit due to manmade global cooling.  And that an April 28, 1975, Newsweek edition proposed solutions that included outlawing internal combustion engines.

Imagine the waste of resources and incredible damage that would have occurred had there been a 1970s Paris Climate Agreement to confront global cooling. And the Democrats urged the country to quickly lead the way and spend trillions of dollars to change the economy, and alter the quality of life in America to find the best ways to heat the planet?

The Democrats, were at it again in 2006 when former U.S. Vice President Al Gore made the documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.”  Gore made the argument celebrated by the media, regarding the correlation between CO2 and the warming of the earth.  While standing in front of an impressively large graph, Gore pointed to the eye-catching relationship between the CO2 and temperature levels based on ice core surveys going back some 650,000 years. “There is one relationship that is more powerful than all the others.” said Gore, “When there is more carbon dioxide, the temperature gets warmer.”

But according to a 2007 documentary, The Great Global Warming Swindle, by British television producer Martin Durkin, Gore is correct that there is a relationship seen in the ice samples between CO2 and temperature. However, Durkin points out that what Gore failed to mention is that it’s the temperature that rises first followed by an increase in CO2 and not the other way around as Gore’s documentary suggests.  After studying the ice core survey graph and data used to produce the conclusions in Gore’s documentary, as well as several ice core surveys taken at later times, leading Arctic paleoclimatologist, Dr. Ian Clark stated that CO2 is seen lagging behind temperature by about 800 years. “CO2 clearly cannot be causing temperature changes,” said Clark. “It’s a product of temperature. It’s following temperature changes.”

Climate analyst and authority on polar history and exploration, Dr. Fred Goldberg points out that CO2 from all sources comprises only about 1.5% of the greenhouse effect while water vapor accounts for 95%.  So according to Goldberg, any impact that CO2 may have on the warming of the earth is “insignificant.”

Also, Goldberg states that man-made CO2 accounts for only 4% of that 1.5% total CO2 amount. Hence man’s’ CO2 contribution to the greenhouse effect is 0.06%.

So although many scientists agree that the earth is warming, many also believe that CO2 is not the cause let alone the tiny amount of CO2 produced by man.  Numerous scientists think that the warming trend is not unusual, permanent or harmful. They state that there is plenty of evidence that shows that the earth has gone through hotter periods for longer durations and that many of the warmer trends ushered in times of prosperity, advances in technology as well as architecture. For a study to be seen as scientific, it must be based on facts and not opinions. The evidence collected as well as the conclusion must be measurable.



A 50-year veteran in geology, Dr. Don Easterbrook, addressed several other common falsehoods by the media as well as other supporters of man-made global warming. Holding original temperature data, Easterbrook said, “1936 was the hottest year of this century, and the 1930s were the hottest decade.”  But Easterbrook added that NASA and NOAA are constantly manipulating the data.  He said that every time there is an “adjustment,” the original 1930s temperature data decreases while the temperature data after the year 2000 increases.

What about the frequently used statement by Democrats and the media that, “97 percent of scientists believe humans contribute to man-made global warming.“?  Easterbrook was direct in his response, “A fraudulent statement,” he said.

Easterbrook pointed out that the 97% figure is based on manipulated data and that only 77 scientists agreed with man-made global warming.  On the other hand, he said that 31,487 scientists including 9,022 holding Ph.D.s, signed “The petition project,” which rejected man-made global warming.

In response to the Global Climate Action Summit and the anthropogenic global warming myth, Richard A. Keen Ph.D. Emeritus Professor of Atmospheric Science, University of Colorado stated that of the 4.65 billion years of total geologic history, 90 % of the time the earth been warmer than it is today. He also agreed with Tom Harris, Executive Director of International Climate Science Coalition that today’s CO2 levels are some of the lowest levels in earth’s history.  Harris added that 440 million years ago when the earth was in the depths of the coldest period in the last half billion years, there was a CO2 level 1,100 % of today’s levels. But just like nearly every other conclusion that runs counter to the radical left’s agenda, the biased media and Socialist Democrats have never reported these facts to the public.

However, there exists a report that everyone interested in the truth or lie about climate change must come to terms with. According to an American Meteorological Society Weather Review, “The Arctic Ocean is warming up. Icebergs are growing scarce and in some places, the Seals are finding the water too hot…fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions.” The review goes on to say, “Within a few years it’s predicted that due to the ice melt, the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.” So it is clear from this review that if remedies are not quickly established, the earth faces immediate disasters of biblical proportions.  The only problem is that the report was published in November 1922.
