Skip to comments.How the world was misled about global warming and now climate change
Posted on 04/21/2008 8:55:33 AM PDT by pissant
Once you realize humans are not causing global warming and/or climate change, then you need an explanation for how and why so many people appear to think they are. In two previous articles (Environmental Extremism and Historical and philosophical context of the climate change debate.) we examined the philosophical and historical context of climate change and specifically the focus on humans as the cause.
We explained the philosophical concept of uniformitarianism that dominates western science; the incorrect idea that change is gradual over long periods of time. We looked at how the scientific method of testing the theory that human CO2 was causing warming/climate change was effectively bypassed. Now we need to examine how politics took over climate science through exploitation of public fear and lack of knowledge.

What is far, far more disturbing is the supposedly conservative party in this country has bought this bullshit hook, line and sinker, after being shamed by the media. McCain is the worst offender. But GWB, the RNC etc is just as culpable.
One more reason to start from scratch and build a genuine conservative coalition.
GWB is simply putting into place plans to thwart the global warming nuts from destroying the USA after he leaves office.
You don’t fight fraud by admitting that it is a “serious problem”. Sorry, the GOP is complicit in this crap.
The world obviously wants Global Warming. So, Global Warming there shall be even if nobody knows exactly what it is.
It is a marketing ploy. The product is development of a new tax base, not to replace existing taxes, abut a fertile new source of revenue. Also, these “carbon credits” will become a fine new market for international trading, a way to shift wealth from the affluent to the underdeveloped countries.
For the multilateralists, a win-win.
The Newt/Pelosi commercials are sickening.
Nobody knows how to take an issue like global warming, raise hysteria and then bludgeon the opposition over the head with it like the ‘progressives’.
Wimpy conservatives just don’t like to be called names!!!
If carbon caps and trades really does come to pass, I expect every good conservative to be ready to beat the progressives at their own game.
“The world obviously wants Global Warming.”
Indeed. Bottom line.
NEW FAVORITE WORD ... UNIFORMITARIANISM
We explained the philosophical concept of uniformitarianism that dominates
western science; the incorrect idea that change is gradual over long periods of
time. We looked at how the scientific method of testing the theory that human
CO2 was causing warming/climate change was effectively bypassed. Now we need to
examine how politics took over climate science through exploitation of public
fear and lack of knowledge.
Exactly. The hard of thinking part of the planet’s population needs a cause to get behind to mitigate their miserable, ne’er do well existences. It takes their mind off the crushing self loathing they live with every day of their puny, insignificant lives
I don’t believe its a Hoax. If Polar caps and Greenland-ice-sheet melt, most of Earth Mass is going to go under water due to 40 foot rise in sea-level. Displaced people would fight for resources and they would obviously dry up fast.
Edgar Cayce, the American Prophet, saw that phenomenon in his dreams hundred years ago.
There is a reason people are gearing up to fight over the new land that is emerging in Greenland. They are not fighing over imaginary ice-field.
There will be impact on the planet when 2.5 Billion Indians and Chinese are burning up fossil fuel almost at the same pace as us. You can’t put that much CO2 in atmosphere and expect no change at all. ACID RAIN was real.
This is why BRILLIANT minds like Newt recgonize that this is not going to be PARTISAN issue anymore. You have to switch to Nuclear Energy and like and not turn all the Corn into fuel to keep food resources healthy and keep burned fossil released in the atmosphere at minimum. This doesn’t mean we should wreck our economy or walk to work as AlGor would have us do. It does mean that we can’t keep it going at the current pace and not have consequences. We won’t turn into Cannibals as Ted Turner would have us believe, but we would face massive starvation amongst other problems.
Stephen Hawkings is one of the most brilliant minds of ALL Time. Is he in on the hoax? Only ones who do not believe its real is Conservative-Talk-Radio-Verbahideen and Fox News Anchor. I would take Stephen Hawkings word over Sean Hannity, if you don’t mind.
There will be flood. Be careful when you drink other people’s milkshake!
Well said, all of it!
They repeat the lies. Our economy dies.

Just follow the money and you will see where global warming leads you. Just exactly what is a “Carbon Credit”? Is it something you can hold in your hand or just a figment of your imagination and something that just makes you feel like you are doing something?
It is also a way to reduce the world leverage of the oil exporting countries, primarily Arab.
Not that I object to the latter, but deception, manipulation, scientific mendacity, is not the way to do it; given that the intelligent people are going to see through the whole thing, and become more cynical than ever about the global politics.
Watch the Council on Foreign Relations. These are ugly people. Arrogant yuppies, kinda, those who know what's best for everyone, yet couldn't tell you the actual molecular weight of the gases they indict.
When you have to resort to insults, your point must be weak. The “Maverick Scientists” who disagree are few and far in between.
You simply have to ask yourself two questions:
What impact would it have on sea-levels if Polar Caps and Greenland Ice-sheet melt?
Is there evidence that melting is occurring as we speak?
Don’t think you need to work too hard to get answers to those questions. BOTH GOP and DEMS now recognize that we can’t ignore this issue because its not a political issue but it impacts future human survival.
Stephen Hawkings vs Sean Hannity! What is a “joke” Alex?
Are you the Little God of Global Warming today? What will happen, will happen.....YOU/WE are NOT in charge....sure we can do SOME things....but, hate to tell you this...YOU can’t control everything!
