Inhofe writes book on 'hoax' of global warming
Tulsa World ^ | Feb 25, 2012 | Jim Myers

Posted on 02/25/2012 8:06:48 PM PST by Innovative

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe years ago declared man-made global warming a hoax and more recently declared victory over his opponents in that long-running debate.

Still, the Oklahoma Republican believes his work is not done.

Next week, the senator said his plans for the book's introduction include interviews with several broadcast personalities known for being on the other side of the debate.

Published by WND Books, which described it as a coup de grace to the global-warming movement, the book is titled "The Greatest Hoax," with the subtitle "How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future."

Next week, the senator said, his plans for the book's introduction include interviews with several well-known broadcasters known for being on the other side of the debate.

I wish all our bright politicians were as observant.

Speaking of “bright politicians”, I just came across this article from the UK Telegraph:

The Gleick affair is further proof of the warmists’ endless credulity. Dr Peter Gleick provides more evidence that the supporters of the Cause will stop at nothing.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/greenpolitics/9105330/The-Gleick-affair-is-further-proof-of-the-warmists-endless-credulity.html

“Global temperatures have signally failed to rise as the computer models, upon which the whole scare was based, said they should. And an endless succession of scandals has engulfed the senior scientists who did more than anyone else to promote the scare. These began with the exposure of the notorious “hockey stick” graph and then the Climategate emails which showed how they fiddled their data and stopped at nothing to discredit anyone who challenged what they called “the Cause”. The scandals continued with the revelations that much of the work of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change - the supreme champion of the Cause - had not been based on science at all but on scare stories dreamed up by environmental activists. “

I forgot to include the excerpt relating to the “bright politicians” in the UK in my previous post:

“Last week, The Sunday Telegraph reported that, as part of Britain’s overseas aid budget, the Department for International Development is well on the way to spending £1.5 billion on a mass of climate-related projects across the world. These range from helping Indian farmers to irrigate their fields with foot-powered pumps rather than diesel-fuelled ones, to preventing the authority of Kenyan “rainmakers” from being undermined by the onset of “extreme weather events”.

Another issue the Left is losing big on. Inhofe and others exposing this hoax deserve a lot of credit for helping to save the country.

Thanks for this thread. Inhofe is one of the few Federal politicians that uses Science when forming an opinion.

Since there is no known cause and effect, Global-Warming remains in the sub-Science category of speculation. However, for-profit politicos such as Algore, have lowered Global-Warming into the category of pop culture junk science.

I'd rather see AGW alarmism described as what it really is - a fraud and a scam.

The word hoax is often used to describe practical jokes with little negative consequence to them.

And you’ve got to love this — or just shake your head in disbelief...

Should Global-Warming Activists Lie to Defend Their Cause?

http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/cross-check/2012/02/24/should-global-warming-activists-lie-to-defend-their-cause/

Kant said that when judging the morality of an act, we must weigh the intentions of the actor. Was he acting selfishly, to benefit himself, or selflessly, to help others? By this criterion, Gleick’s lie was clearly moral, because he was defending a cause that he passionately views as righteous. Gleick, you might say, is a hero comparable to Daniel Ellsberg, the military analyst who in 1971 stole and released documents that revealed that U.S. officials lied to justify the war in Vietnam.

See my post 10, about an article in Scientific American (!!!), explaining that it’s OK to lie to promote global warming — you can’t make the stuff up!

It’s not a “hoax.”

It’s a lie.

“Madam speaker, we’re still trying to find a Republican who will sit next to you for your global warming PSA. Both Santorum and Inhofe called it a hoax...”

The “scrubbing” of the grants given to Glieck from the EPA data is something like Orwell's 1984. In 1984 history was fluid and the “facts of history” changed as needed to support the totalitarian government of Oceania.

Each and every year the actions of government show the absolute brilliance of George Orwell. He was a visionary. Unfortunately it appears he was right.

It's about time! Thanks Senator Inhofe, for opening honest challenge to those who would destroy Science.

The available data not only do not support the AGW theory, but they rebuke it.

Science says the issue of AGW has been raised, but not substantiated.
