Anthropocentric (man-caused) Global Warming (AGW): Should fraud, fiction, and fear provide the basis for public policy?
Man-made global warming is a hoax that threatens our future and the future of our children. Environmentalism is the new communism and climate change is a myth.

Some heated rhetoric for public consumption:
Climate Change is the greatest threat that human civilization has ever faced.
– Angela Merkel, German Chancellor
Humanity is sitting on a time bomb. If the vast majority of the world’s scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a major catastrophe that could send our entire planet’s climate system into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have ever experienced- a catastrophe of our own making.
I think we ought to have an immediate freeze on CO2 emissions.
– Former Vice President Al Gore, from “An Inconvenient Truth” and Congressional testimony
We are getting close to catastrophic tipping points, despite the fact that most people barely notice the warming yet.
– Dr. James Hansen, NASA scientist and Gore ally
The planet is on course for a catastrophe. The existence of Life itself is at stake.
– IPCC Principal Research Scientist
By the end of this (21st) century, climate change will reduce the human population to a few breeding pairs surviving near the Arctic.

True confessions by policy makers on policy objectives:
We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.
– Timothy Wirth, President of the United Nations Foundation
In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill.

The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are.Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund and Council on Foreign Relations
No matter if the science of global warming is all phony… Climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.

So if someone wants to build a coal power plant they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them because they will be charged a HUGE sum for all that greenhouse gas being emitted…. Under my plan of a cap and trade system electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket.
– Presidential candidate, Barak Obama, 2008
Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket.

I would freely admit that on (global warming) we have crossed the boundary from news reporting to advocacy.
– Charles Alexander
Not only do journalists NOT have a responsibility to report what skeptical scientists have to say about global warming. They a responsibility NOT to report what those scientists say.
– Ross Gelbspan
Some Real Climate Scientist/Skeptics Speak Out:
You can go outside and spit and have the same effect as doubling carbon dioxide… All this argument is the temperature going up or not, it’s absurd. Of course it’s going up. It has gone up since the early 1800’s, before the Industrial Revolution, because we’re coming out of the Little Ice Age, not because we’re putting more carbon dioxide into the air.
(Manmade global warming) is a theory for which there is no credible proof. There is very little truth to what is being said and an awful lot of religion. It’s mostly a religion where you have to believe in anthropogenic global warming or else you are nuts. I know of no vote having been taken, and know that if such a vote were taken of those who are most vocal about the matter, it would include a significant fraction of people who do not know enough about climate to have a significant opinion.”
(On Al Gore’s movie, “An Inconvenient Truth): Don’t make me throw up. It is not science. It is not true.

A public relations campaign of staggering proportions is being carried forward to convince us that global warming is man-made and a crisis. The historic evidence, however, shows us two similar warming periods in the recent past: the Medieval Warming (950-1300 AD) and the Roman Warming (200 BC to 600 AD). Ice cores dug up from Greenland and the Antarctic show there have been 600 such cycles over the past one million years- all of them moderate.”
– S. Fred Singer and Dennis T. Avery, Unstoppable Global Warming Every 1500 Years (2007)
What a load of poppy-cock! Global warming- at least the modern nightmare version- is a myth.
(CO2) is in fact, the most important airborne fertilizer in the world, and without it there would be no green plants at all. Even a doubling of CO2 in the atmosphere would produce a rise in plant productivity. Call me a biased old plant lover, but that doesn’t sound like much of a killer gas to me. Hooray for global warming is what I say, and so do a lot of my fellow scientists.
It would be terrible if billions or trillions of dollars were wasted “on a problem that doesn’t exist- money that could be used in umpteen better ways: fighting world hunger, providing clean water, developing alternative energy sources, improving our environment, creating jobs.”
– David Bellamy, Botany Professor, Great Britain’s best-known environmentalist
In 1995, I published a short paper in the academic journal Science. In that study, I reviewed how borehole temperature data recorded a warming of about one degree Celsius in North America over the last 100 to 150 years. The week the article appeared, I was contacted by a reporter for National Public Radio. He offered to interview me, but only if I would state that the warming was due to human activity. When I refused to do so, he hung up on me. I had another interesting experience around the time my paper in Science was published. I received an astonishing email from a major researcher in the area of climate change. He said, ‘We have got to get rid of the Medieval Warm period.’”
– Dr. David Deming, University of Oklahoma, before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Dec. 6, 2006
How can a barely discernable, one-degree F. increase in the recorded global mean temperature since the late 19th century possibly gain public acceptance as the source of recent weather catastrophes? And how can it translate into unlikely claims about future catastrophes?
The answer has much to do with misunderstanding the science of climate, plus a willingness to debase climate science into a triangle of alarmism. Ambiguous scientific statements about climate are hyped by those with a vested interest in alarm, thus raising the political stakes for policymakers who provide funds for more science research to feed more alarm to increase the political stakes. Indeed, the success of scientific alarmism can be counted in the increased federal spending on climate research from a few million dollars pre-1990 to $1.7 billion (per year) today. Scientists who dissent from the alarmism have seen their grant funds disappear, their work derided, and themselves libeled as industry stooges, scientific hacks, or worse. Consequently, lies about climate change gain credence even when they fly in the face of the science that supposedly is their basis.”
– Dr. Richard Lindzen, former professor of mathematics, University of Chicago and Harvard University, “Climate of Fear,” April 12, 2006
Sophisticated climate models have been running for twenty years now. It has become evident that these models cannot be made to agree on anything except a possible relation between greenhouse gases and a slight increase in globally averaged temperatures…We should stop our support for the preoccupation with greenhouse gases our politicians indulge in. Global energy policy is their business, not ours. We should not allow politicians to use fake doomsday projections as a cover-up for their real intentions.”
– Dr. H. Tennekes, Professor of Meteorology, “A Personal Call for Modesty, Integrity, and Balance,” Climate Science, 2007.
I have studied their climate models and know what they can do. The models solve the equations of fluid dynamics and do a very good job of describing the fluid motions of the atmosphere and the oceans. They do a very poor job of describing the clouds, the dust, the chemistry, and biology of fields, farms and forests. They do not begin to describe the real world that we live in. They are full of fudge factors that are fitted to the existing climate, so the models more or less agree with the observed data. But there is no reason to believe that the same fudge factors would give the right behavior in a world with different chemistry, for example, in a world with increased CO2 in the atmosphere.
Here, I am opposing the holy brotherhood of climate model experts and the crowd of deluded citizens that believe the numbers predicted by their models. The problems are being grossly exaggerated. They take away money and attention from other problems that are much more urgent and important- poverty, infectious diseases, public education, and public health.

The full spectrum of spatial and temporal scales exhibited by the climate system will not be resolvable by models for decades, if ever.

“Uncertainties in emissions scenarios feed into uncertainties in carbon-cycle modeling, which feed into uncertainties in climate modeling, which drive and even larger range of uncertain climate impacts.

We’re talking here of mathematical models whose results have consequences costing billions of dollars and involve the responsibility of all the governments of the world. It is necessary to bring these basic themes back to the scientific laboratories where they belong, talking them away from the hands of those who use them to satisfy ambitions that have nothing to do with scientific truth.
– Dr. Antonio Zichichi, professor of Advanced Physics at the University of Bologna.
The paucity of information in the IPCC reports was hardly surprising: not one of the lead authors had ever written a research paper on the subject! Moreover, two of the authors, both physicians, had spent their entire careers as environmental activists.
(The real problem is that) the Intergovernmental Panel (on Climate Change) is precisely that- it is a panel among governments. It is the governments of the world who make up the IPCC, define its remit, and direction. The way in which this is done is defined in the IPCC Principles and Procedures, which have been agreed by governments”
– Paul Reiter, Professor of medical entomology, Pasteur Institute in Paris (who resigned from IPCC)
I cannot in good faith continue to contribute to a process I view as both being motivated by preconceived agendas and being scientifically unsound. I have decided to no longer participate in the IPCC AR4.”
– Dr. Christopher Landsea, NOAA research meteorologist, in his letter of resignation from the IPCC
Atmospheric physics is quite clear that increasing CO2 concentrations increases temperature. The best way to demonstrate this is to model the temperature of the atmosphere with all CO2 removed. It is very cold. Then, increase CO2 by small increments and plot the graph of temperature increase. It is very rapid initially and then flattens out. Doubling CO2 from today’s concentration, holding all other parameters constant, has a “negligible” effect.
– John Bluemle, North Dakota State Climatologist
Effectively, this (new study) means that the global economy will spend trillions of dollars trying to avoid a warming of about 1.1 degree C by 2100 AD… Recall that most of the 1.1 degree- about 0.7 degrees- has already occurred. As far as I can say, all the people who end up with 2 or even 3 Celsius degrees are just playing the children’s game to scare each other by making artificial biased assumptions about positive feedbacks.
– Dr. Ian Wilson, reviewer of Dr. Stephen Schwartz’ “Heat Capacity, Time Constant, and Sensitivity of Earth’s Climate System,” Journal of Geophysical Research, 2008
Sadly the presidential candidates are relying far too much on the reports of the IPCC, a body which has used sloppy science to further specific political and policy goals.
I predict that the IPCC experience will end up being the worst case of scientific malpractice in history. Not that the scientists are at fault, I think they have been led around by some politically savvy, almost charismatic leaders.
If the new President and Congress are not careful, the resulting “sub-prime science meltdown” we are headed for will have caused carbon dioxide regulations which will make the current financial crisis seem puny by comparison.Ex-NASA meteorologist, Dr. Roy Spencer, author of Climate Confusion; How Global Warming Hysteria Leads to Bad Science, Pandering Politicians, and Misguided Policies that Hurt the Poor (2008)

Anthropocentric Global Warming (AGW): Centerpiece of a twisted new “Green Agenda” and world government under the UN?
Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class- involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, air-conditioning, and sub-urban housing- are not sustainable….. Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?
– Maurice Strong, Secretary-General of the United Nations’ Rio Earth Summit, founder of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), founder, president of Earth Council, co-author of the Earth Charter with Mikhail Gorbachev, etc. etc. etc.
The emerging “environmentalization” of our civilization and the need for vigorous action in the interest of the entire global community will inevitably have multiple political consequences. Perhaps the most important of them will be a gradual change in the status of the United Nations. Inevitably, it must assume some aspects of a world government…..
I envisage the principles of the Earth Charter to be a new form of the Ten Commandments. They lay the foundation a sustainable global earth community.
Nature is my god. To me, nature is sacred; trees are my temples and forests are my cathedrals.

One American burdens the earth much more than twenty Bangladeshes. This is a terrible thing to say. In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It’s a horrible thing to say, but it’s just as bad not to say it.

A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions.
A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-develop means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.
Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.

So should we now ask United Nations to save us from the threat of catastrophic man-caused global warming?
More and more it is becoming clear that those who support the so-called “New World Order” or World Government under the United Nations have adopted global environmentalism as a basis for the dissolution of independent nations and the international realignment of power.
– Dixie Lee Ray, former chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, 1993
The recent global warming hysteria is in reality a geopolitical push by leading global elite circles to find a way to get the broader population to willingly accept drastic cuts in their living standards, something that were it demanded without clear reason by politicians, would spark strikes and protest. The UN’s latest IPCC report on Global Warming calls for diverting a huge 12% of global GDP to “prevent the harmful effects of climate change.” The UN report, for example, estimated that its recommendations to reduce certain manmade emissions would cost about $2,750 per family per year in the price of energy.
– F. William Engdahl, “Disproof of Global Warming Hype,” 2008
So where does the passion in support of the man-made global warming hoax originate? Freedom First Society believes that the best explanation for the widespread propaganda is that the “crisis” hoax supports an immense power grab. High-level internationalist insiders have selected the global warming scare as one pretext to help them drive forward their revolutionary “new world order.” In particular, they seek to persuade independent nations to submit to world government, cleverly controlled by an elite few from behind the scenes.
– Tom Gow, “The Global Warming Hoax,” 2008
In short, the house of world order will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down. An end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old fashioned frontal assault…. One way to garner public support for new international treaties would be to propagandize world wide predicaments. If people are scared of terrorism, financial chaos or global warming, they will be willing to cede national sovereignty, freedom and liberties for global authority.
