The early returns of the Cult of Global Warming are in and they are not flattering. An ever-growing body of reputable scientists are gathering their courage and calling Global Warming what it is: an enormous hoax whose aim is not saving the planet, but rather, carrying the torch for communism and its utterly discredited bag of lies whose sole aim is to give a small group of elites control over the Earths stupid and uneducated population. For their own good, of course.
Recently, John Coleman, founder of The Weather Channel, a meteorologist who now works at KUSI TV in San Diego, and a member of the International Climate and Environmental Change Assessment Project (ICECAP), publicly decried the Global Warming Hoax:
"It is the greatest scam in history," said Coleman on the ICECAP Web site. "Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long-term scientific data to create an illusion of rapid global warming. Other scientists of the same environmental whacko type jumped into the circle to support and broaden the 'research' to further enhance the totally slanted, bogus global warming claims In time, a decade or two, the outrageous scam will be obvious as the temperature rises, polar ice cap melting, coastal flooding and super storm pattern all fail to occur as predicted everyone will come to realize we have been duped. The sky is not falling. And, natural cycles and drifts in climate are as much if not more responsible for any climate changes underway."
An ever growing body of data reflected on hundreds of websites not controlled by Big Media shows the hoax for what it is. Cherry-picked statistics; weather observation stations built within arms reach of large man-made heat sources; screeching about melting some arctic ice fields while studiously ignoring a simultaneous and equal increase in ice in other arctic locations; PhotoShopped pictures of polar bears drowning and elephants mummified in Africa; the list is nearly endless. One scientist has linked more than 600 bogus science websites to the topic global warming. Almost all are alarmist, if not just plain dishonest.
It needs to be noted that The Global Warming Hoax has been seen before, wearing different clothes. In the last century it was called Lysenkoism...

I want to know who the one “scientist” with the 600 links is.
As to the Goracle and his minions of Gorons, I see stupid people everywhere..
"It is the greatest scam in history," said Coleman on the ICECAP Web site.
His statement should be sent to all "news" programs on MSM,and local TV media who seem to shout "global warming" scares during weather reports on a regular basis.
The early winter freeze up in the sub arctic isn't even mentioned, nor the -20c below normal temperatures that are causing havoc in northern communities.
But they regularly run "poor polar bear" stories, citing polar bears in churchill Manitoba are unable to get on arctic ice to hunt seals.
Of course dumb humans buy this B.S., not thinking long enough to realize polar bears in churchill don't hunt on arctic ice flows, they'd have to walk a thousand miles or so to do that. Churchill polar bears live on the tundra surrounding the Hudson bay, a watershed area where fresh waters mix with sea water and empties into the Atlantic.
Global Warming is only one facet of neo-lysenkoism. Fortunately for planet earth there is no Stalin to back it up at this time.
Yes, but there is the main stream media.
Not so anymore where we can go to sources to verify or blow holes in their stories. They have been working off the theme that they control the news that reaches the public. They have lost that control and are floundering helplessly to try and regain it.
Right now they seem to think that sheer arrogance will accomplish that goal.
* It always has in the past.
“Global Warming: The New Lysenkoism”
Background for those that haven’t heard about fraudulent plant
scientist Lysenko and the dedicated plant scientist/geneticist
that oppossed Lysenko.
VOA’s summation: Lysenko was a Lamarkian and got praise for his theory
of environmentally acquired traits for plant...e.g., planting them
further and further
north, thinking the seed of the plants would be hardier the next year.
This concept fit well with the Communist idea of “stuggle” and getting
stronger all the time.
Vavilov was more of a Medelian geneticist and suffered greatly when
Lysenko became the darling of Soviet plant/crop science.
This episode essentially doomed the USSR for about two decades of
pathetic crop yields. And millions suffered and some surely starved.
Lysenko rejected Mendelian genetics in favor of the hybridization theories
of Russian horticulturist Ivan Vladimirovich Michurin, and adopted them
into a powerful political scientific movement termed Lysenkoism. (snip)
Scientific dissent from Lysenko’s theories of environmentally
acquired inheritance was formally outlawed in 1948, and for the next
several years opponents were purged from held positions, and many
imprisoned. Lysenko’s work was officially discredited in the Soviet
Union in 1964,...
In 1940 he was jailed as a defender of the “bourgeois pseudoscience”
(genetics) in a struggle with Lysenkoism, and died of malnutrition
in a prison in 1943.
It is with considerable sadness that I am about to cancel subscriptions that I have maintained for many decades...
hehehe....I’ve been sayin’ that for @ least 2 years.....
I stopped renewing Scientific American when the Alan Alda articles were featured. Even before then the magazine was becoming less "scientific" and more like the "People's" magazine of the science that it is today.
The person on the right was the Greatest Scientist of His Day.
