The 6 Quadrillion Dollar Climate Change Scam
Flopping Aces ^ | 08-22-12 | Curt

Posted on 08/22/2012 10:19:51 AM PDT by Starman417

President Vaclav Klaus delivered the keynote address this year to the World Federation of Scientists:

This brings me to the topic of my speech. I will try to argue that current as well as realistically foreseeable global warming, and especially Man’s contribution to it, is not a planetary emergency which should bother us.

I am not a climatologist, but the IPCC and its leading spokespersons are not climatologists either. I am content to be a consumer of climatology and its related scientific disciplines. In this respect, I am located – in the economic jargon – on the demand side of climatology, not on the supply side.

There are many distinguished scientists here, and some of them are on the other side. I have no intention to break into their fields of study. By expressing my doubts about a simple causal relationship between human CO2 emissions and climate, I do not have the slightest ambition to support one or another competing scientific hypothesis concerning the factors leading to global warming (or eventually cooling).

Nevertheless, my reading both of the available data and of conflicting scientific arguments and theories allows me to argue that it is not global warming caused by human activity that is threatening us.

My views about this issue have been expressed in a number of speeches and articles in the last couple of years all over the world. The book “Blue Planet in Green Shackles” has already been published in 18 languages, last month even in Indonesian. The subtitle of the book asks, “What is Endangered: Climate or Freedom?” The real problem is not climate or global warming, but the Global Warming Doctrine and its consequences. They may eventually bring us close to a real planetary emergency. Absolutely unnecessarily, without any connection with global temperature.

This doctrine, as a set of beliefs, is an ideology, if not a religion. It lives independently on the science of climatology. Its disputes are not about temperature, but are part of the “conflict of ideologies”. Temperature is used and misused in these disputes. The politicians, the media and the public – misled by the very aggressive propaganda produced by the adherents of the global warming doctrine – do not see this. It is our task to help them to distinguish between what is science and what is ideology.

Believers in the global warming doctrine have not yet presented its authoritative text, its manifesto. One of the reasons is that no one wants to be explicitly connected with it. Another is that to put such a text together would be difficult because this doctrine is not a monolithic concept which can be easily summarized. Its subject matter does not belong to any single science. It presents itself as a flexible, rather inconsistent, loosely connected cascade of arguments, which is why it has quite successfully escaped the scrutiny of science. It comfortably dwells in the easy and self protecting world of false interdisciplinarity which is really a nondisciplinarity, it is an absence of discipline.

While this Federation doesn't have a mega-PR team nor millions of dollars to spend on that PR it does have a member roll of 10,000 scientists from all over the world. The founder of this Federation is Professor Antonino Zichichi? He discovered a form of anti-matter 40 years before that billion dollar collider did and is the most famous Italian scientist since Galileo.

Christopher Monckton writes that Zichichi is angry. Why you ask?

Angry because he, like me, was brought up in the Classical tradition, which insists that the duty of every “seeker after truth” (Al-Haytham’s beautiful phrase for the scientist) is to be logical and rational. He founded the Federation at the height of the Cold War to remind scientists of their moral responsibility to use their craft for good, not for ill, and of their intellectual obligation to adhere rigorously to the scientific method.

Nino is furious at the politicization of climate science. Science these days is a monopsony. There is only one paying customer: the State. Scientists increasingly produce the results their political paymasters want rather than seeking after truth.

Great! They can keep moving the goal posts on this, ad infinitum.

It’s how they can’t be nailed down and it’s the typical Liberal casual disregard for cold hard logic.

The problem today is that "science" has been thoroughly corrupted by greedy, corrupt, grant-lusting fraudsters. It may take a decade or more for the discipline of "science" to restore any kind of positive reputation with the public.

"What you do, if you are a serious scientist operating according to the established method, is attempt to falsify your hypothesis. Test it to destruction; carry out serious attacks on its weakest points to see if they hold up. If they do... then you have a theory that can be published, and tested, and verified by other scientists. If you don't, you throw it out."

Global Warming Fraud and the Future of Science - J. R. Dunn

The "scientists" who perpetrated the global warming fraud approached their science in exactly the opposite manner as the approach described above. They formulated a theory based on political ideology (as well as the path of least resistance to "grant" money) and then did whatever they had to do with their data to "prove" it.

What the world has now seen with the expose of the "global warming" scam through the leaked email dumps of November 2009 and now again in November 2011 puts a new spin on the old saying: "Figures can lie and liars can figure." The discipline of science has taken a massive hit over the past three-plus years and it could take decades for science - - and scientists - - to regain any credibility with the public. A lot of that burden must fall on honest scientists, and the first and most important thing they must do is scream for the heads of Michael Mann, Phil Jones, and the rest of the "climategate" fraudsters. I guess we'll see if they have the integrity to do it. (No, I am not holding my breath.)

They know that. When this whole thing started, the head environmental kook in Canada said, "Even if global warming isn't man-made, this movement is good for social justice."

There you have it, folks. That's the driving force behind this scam.

Al Gore was all about creating a new Market to trade.

Get in on the ground floor and make the rules and have open pockets for outside influence.

Not only have these AGW FRAUDS not been right on even one of their assertions. They have been 180 degrees wrong. While CO2 levels have increased since 1990. Temperatures have not. That puts a whole in their argument the size of a Big Sis’s Rear end. They put forth a fraudulent argument POLAR BEARS were being destroyed because of global warming. When investigated we find the truth is polar bears populations have increased. You can go right on down the line and not one assertion is even close. That’s why the AGW CO2 scam is collasping along with the FOREIGNERS REGIME as fast as he can side step a news conference.

You need to look at a WSJ article from August 13 ‘Climate Concenus’ Data Need a more Careful Look. The gist of is that CO2 levels are actually below the optimum level for plants, “there are persuasive arguments that the mild warming and increased agricultural yields from doubling CO2 will be an overall benefit for humanity”. Go figure.

Klaus probably knows more statistics then the IPCC, Mann, & East Anglia’s entire Climate Research unit!

Let's see ? Hmmm ? wonder if the great big ball called our ( Sun ) nearest living star 93 MILLION miles away that is ran by nuclear fusion have anything to do with it ? naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa can't be.

Hey ? another conspiracy ? noticed all the other so called Stars in our Universe has a name ? and ours is just called some generic name: SUN ? just joking folks, keep up the good work.

It's call a " Convenient " lie and hoax to snap the back of the American economy and line some fake Scientists and fake politicians pockets.

Al Gore ? where did all that money go ?

Liberals ? MSM ? where did the money go and when did you know it ?
