MANY UPDATES! The Evidence continues to Pile Up like a Giant Snowdrift: Global Warming is the Hoax of the Century


Never have so many otherwise balanced and rational people been so cowed and so completely sold a bill of goods than have those who have bought into to the Great Global Warming Hoax.

As the scientific evidence continues to pile up that whatever warming has occurred over the last half century has nothing whatsoever to do with human CO2 emissions; nevertheless the same snake oil salesmen (who are profiting obscenely from this hysteria with their "carbon credits" -- just as men like Jimmy Swaggert and Jim Baker took advantage of fearful and gullible Christians for millions of dollars) continue to preach the same tired "the end is nigh" prophecies of doom and gloom to keep their own sleazy "money train" coming in. Meanwhile real problems like cancer research, AIDS, drinking water and basic services for the third world continue to receive peanuts in comparison.

The worldwide purveyors of this "religous cult" have one overriding purpose, and that is to transform a sovereign, powerful United States into a funding mechanism (that means out of YOUR paychecks, folks..) for their bankrupt vision of World Socialism. The idea is to create enough hysteria that Americans will gladly give up billions of dollars of their own money for UN sponsored programs, corrupt governments, and NGOs.

Meanwhile the Green Lobby continues to line the pockets of Global Warmism "evangelists" and corrupt Democrat politicians, designed to prevent the same US from harnessing its own plentiful energy resources, becoming more self-dependent, and becoming less dependent on the countries who want to spread the pestilence of Islamic Radicalism to a neighborhood near you.

They want to generate enough hysteria and fear that these same "on the take" politicians will have the cover needed to sink hundreds of billions of YOUR money into unproven Green technologies (some, like Ethanol, which are already driving food prices through the roof). Meanwhile free market solutions--for example energy companies like Exxon, Chevron, and Shell, who are already investing billions in private research into clean energy alternatives, more efficiently than our bloated Government could ever dream of--are roundly condemned by the same politicians, that are in the pocket of the Green lobby, and who in many cases are making hundreds of millions of dollars in selling hysteria-based "carbon credits". What is their response to these energy companies? Why to tax them heavily for making profits (thus removing the capital these companies are putting into this valuable research.). Insanity.

If the scare-mongers' scheme succeeds, the result will be to further cripple our already stretched-to-the-limit economy, to send still greater numbers of American workers s to the unemployment lines (and thus making more citizens more dependent on their social programs and handouts--funded again, by higher taxes on YOU)...and ultimately to cede increasing amounts of American sovereignty to organizations like the utterly corrupt United Nations.

And for what? The same "scientists" who can't tell you with accuracy what the temperature in one location is going to be exactly one week from today are pretending they have unassailable "models" (which has flatly been proven to be complete fabrication) that know what temperatures worldwide are going to be 100 years from now?

The most stunning thing of all is that people are actually swallowing this load of garbage, with the help of the leftist media and corrupt politicians. Con men selling snake oil remedies in the old West had as much "science" behind their outrageous claims as do today's "consensus scientists".

Unfortunately for those who are on the receiving end of the Global Warming Church's "collection plates", real scientific evidence does continues to pile up--but against the poison they are peddling. Previous "true believers" have now turned into skeptics--esteemed scientists who now are treated as pariahs by their colleagues, who fear that if the truth does come out, all of their grants and funding will dry up. Which it probably would do...

The immorality of this waste is staggering; there are so many more pressing problems that would be a better use for an estimated $558 Trillion which governments advocate spending on this what amounts to nothing more than "religious faith" (and in reality, is as much of a leap of faith as is the immaculate conception), that it defies the imagination. Yet in the face of all this new evidence, the very same charlatans continue to preach the same message--gloom and doom--even as the science now coming in refutes their outrageous claims one by one.

When will the madness end?

Gateway Pundit continues to chronicle the hoax of the Century, that becomes more fantastic with each passing day:
Several scientific studies along with record cold temperatures this past year in both hemispheres is shedding light on the fallacy of manmade global warming.
Merinews reported:
Satellite measurements available since 1979 show no warming in the southern hemisphere and the trend in the northern hemisphere appears to have waned since 2001.

--In August 2007, the UK Met Office acknowledged that obvious global warming had stopped.

--Paleo-climate scientist Bob Carter testifying before the US Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works has noted that the accepted global average temperature statistics used by IPCC show no ground-based warming has occurred since 1998.

--A research led by David Bromwich, Professor of Atmospheric Science in the Department of Geography at Ohio State University and researchers with the Byrd Polar Research Centre at Ohio State University shows that during the late 20th century, the temperature in Antarctica did not rise to the level predicted by many global warming models.

--According to UN scientist Madhav L. Khandekar, a retired Environment Canada scientist and an expert IPCC reviewer in 2007, the recent worldwide analysis of ocean surface temperatures shows that sea surface temperatures over world oceans are slowly declining since mid-1998.

--While the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is steadily rising from 280 ppm and might reach 560 ppm by 2100 as predicted by IPCC, the world’s average temperature, instead of following a steep upward gradient, is actually plunging after a period of upward trend. However, the IPCC is not coming out publicly with the truth surrounding the correlation between rise in carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere and its possible consequence on global warming, if any.

--A study by researchers of the Atmospheric Science Group, Department of Mathematical Science, at the University of Wisconsin, found that global warming in the last century was linked to natural causes.

--The Royal Meteorological Institute at Brussels in its report last year said that not carbon dioxide but the most important greenhouse gas was water vapour; it was responsible for 75 per cent of the greenhouse effect. According to Belgian climate scientist Lu Debontridder, the warm winters of the last few years in Belgium are simply due to the North-Atlantic oscillation that has absolutely nothing to do with carbon dioxide.

--A study published in Science last September found that contrary to past inferences from ice core records, carbon dioxide did not cause the end of the last ice age. According to the same study, deep-sea temperatures warmed about 1,300 years before the tropical surface ocean and well before the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide.

--USC geologist Lowell Scot, the lead author of the study, said that the climate dynamics are much more complex than simply saying that carbon dioxide rises and the temperature warms.

--The IPCC climate model is based on the assumption that increased warming would cause more rainfall that would produce more clouds on the higher reaches of the atmosphere. Since high clouds have a net warming effect this would cause more warming, more rainfall and the cycle will continue. It is this positive feedback that causes the UN climate models to predict a temperature rise in the range of 2.5 degree Celsius to 4.7 degree Celsius due to rise in the level of carbon dioxide to 560 ppm. Dr Roy Spencer along with researchers at the University of Alabama Huntsville and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, California, after observing the temperatures, clouds and rainfall reported that warming is actually associated with fewer high clouds. There is no data to support the theory that more rainfall will produce more high-altitude clouds.

--The mainstream media seems to be purposely ignoring the bulk of the findings by renowned researchers throughout the globe that the current global warming fear attributed solely to carbon dioxide rise is utterly unfounded.
Dave wrote in that the February global temperature anomalies show that February like January was another cold month.

Have they asked Al Gore to return the Peace Prize, yet?
If you still are a believer that man-made CO2 is a problem, this may be the most important hour or so you will ever spend. And if you you are one of those who used to "go along with the 'progressive' on this, just to get along", it is not too late to let your Congressmen and Senators know that there are much more pressing matters that deserve more attention than does this charade. The American economy for one...

"Progressive" - one who believes in progress--towards the destruction of the greatest experiment in democracy, freedom, and created wealth in World History. And Global Warming is their primary vehicle to make this happen. Don't let these modern day televangelists get away with it.

Finally there are three video segments of Charlie Rose grilling Dr. Michael Crichton regarding his views on Global Warming, and a couple of other Crichton videos that are really worth watching here on the subject:
It is difficult to fathom how any reasonable person--who actually who spent the time to read all of what I have linked and view the linked videos (especially the one linked above as "the most important hour, etc..."), yet persists in calling this a crisis that argues for a $558 Trillion crash program for the world to end this "catastrophe" now--is either a religious fanatic or a Marxist--or both.

Many of the same people who refuse to view this evidence did not have any problem whatsoever throwing their money away to watch Al Gore's refuse film (I actually saw it on HBO and almost became ill...). In reality the alarmist conclusions of An Inconvenient Truth have been all but disproven already. It is pure fear-mongering. And it has made this modern day Oral Roberts a very rich man, and the toast of the Far Left.

The longer that we as a society continue to treat unfounded alarmist predictions like Gore's as "fact", when almost none of the actual science supports his conclusions, the closer we will come to a real catastrophe--and one that could have easily been avoided if we had only had the good sense to listen to the facts, not to America-hating politicians.
