Skip to comments.The End of an Illusion (The science for man made global warming, climate change, etc. isn't there.)

Many years ago, I remember thinking that it would take many years to refute the panicked claims about global warming. Unlike most political movements, which content themselves with making promises about, say, what the unemployment rate will be in two years if we pass a giant stimulus billclaims that are proven wrong (and how!) relatively quicklythe environmentalists had successfully managed to put their claims so far off into the future that it would take decades to test them against reality.
But guess what? The decades are finally here.
At Forbes, Harry Binswanger dates the beginning of the campaign to 1979 and puts it in an amusing perspective...
That has been one of my complaints about the global warming scare since the very beginning. We only have systematic global temperature measurements going back about 150 years, which on the relevant timescalea geological time-scaleis a blink of an eye. Moreover, the measurement methods for these global temperatures have been not been entirely consistent, making them susceptible to changes due to everything from a different paint used on the outside of the weather station to the "urban heat island" effect that happens when a weather station in the middle of a field is surrounded over the years by parking lots. And somehow, among all the billions spent on global warming research, not much money seems to have made its way to the enormous international effort that would be required to ensure the accurate and consistent measurement of global temperatures.
So we have not been able to establish what ought to be the starting point for any theory about global temperatures: a baseline for what is a normal global temperature and what is a natural variation in temperature.
But can't we all just stop calling this "science" now?

You forget, the science is settled because every democrat agrees, if only for the sake of agreement. And since the AGW deniers are no better than holocaust deniers and therefore no better than Nazis, science must adapt. It can’t be about evidence anymore, but what feels right to those that matter. In fact, if the evidence doesn’t fit with the conclusion we all agree with, then the evidence is wrong, not us. SO SAY WE ALL!
Global warming is a huge hoax
democrats, government and the news media have been lying to the American people for decades
governmentS funded this fake research for DECADES
This proves that government is evil, a threat, doesnt work and should be kept limited as it was in 1800s America
what other science have they been lying to us about ? think different, question the authorities and experts.
The government and the news media manufacture many fake crisis all to get people to cry “we have to do something” and so government grows and our rights and freedom dissapear. the mass shooting crisis is another fake crisis as it doesn't exist statistically , more people die by ligthning strikes than do by mass shooters so it's statistically non-existent but the news media makes it a crisis that everyone is talking about and that something must be done about so you have states like colorado getting more background checks , banning magazines , the UN making treaties to take away our 2nd amendment right and Obama and democrats approving that treaty, you get these global warming carbon laws and shutting down of coal plants and a million other examples
At least till they collapse the economy and the global warming tool will no longer be needed.
The EPA can be disbanded and their leader (who the hell is that now... another black female?) put to pasture.
“A theory with this many holes in it would be have been thrown out long ago, if not for the fact that it conveniently serves the political function of indicting fossil fuels as a planet-destroying evil and allowing radical environmentalists to put a modern, scientific face on their primitivist crusade to shut down industrial civilization.”
The last paragraph says it all. It also tells you that everything else Democrats believe in; diversity, green energy, cultural relativism, are all aimed at destroying civilization. Only then can we achieve utopia.
The news media has them as their puppets and slaves
Most people and all democrats that I talk to still believe in the Global warming hoax and they argue against me , laughing at me , ridiculing me
I think it works like this. The liberal world develops their code. In some cases, its a real code; like the AP style book. We will no longer use the pejorative term illegal immigrant. They are now perspective citizens. So, with thousands of repetitions because so many people leave the televisions on 24 hour news, they become perspective citizens. Peoples views have changed and they werent even aware it was happening. This is one reason why having a TV on in the doctors office drives me nuts. Even though people arent listening their subconscious is being programed.
Similarly, the press would not publish any anti-global warming studies. That was a decision made by the editorial boards. Their writers couldnt quote an opposing view without using mocking terms. My own sister, who keeps CNN on in the background for company, has absorbed all of these views. She knows theyre right and I have to sit down and have a long discussion about each one to get her to see the light. But after a while, shes back to her old beliefs.
Saul Alinski taught his followers to mock the opposition. Observers so dont want to be mocked that they will never adopt a viewpoint theyve seen publically mocked. (This indicates a beta or follower personality. There are probably fewer than 10 alphas or leader personalities per 100 followers.)
one I get them with that leaves them stunned and unable to reply is “If global warming is real then why did they change the name of it to climate change”, the look of confusion on their faces is priceless. and its not just democrats that believe in global warming. most average American joes are brainwashed by their TV in their living room, that is the problem
I would love to have the money this hoax has cost humanity.
It is the World equivalent of shouting “FIRE” in a crammed theatre.
The last line is my plea as well.
My hope is that they Hysteria over it goes away, but I doubt that too.
Sorry, but it's not science if historical data keeps changing. It's 1984's Ministry of Truth.
He's going to poop his pants when hears this.
'Course he does that at the drop of a hat.
Our New World Order masters only need to prop up this ruse for a couple more decades, until Agenda 21 is fully implemented. After that, it doesn’t matter. The cities will be filled, the rural areas will be off limits, and the permanent damage will be done.
With 2 generations of brainwashed children and complicit media to bolster our communist overlords, it is not going to be hard to fully implement Agenda 21 before they finally have to admit that global warming was much ado about nothing.
In 2 decades, it won’t matter because we will all be slaves anyway.
Similar to the old “food pyramid” that was designed by the grain industry and Kellogs, which said we should be eating 80% carbs.
Gee, and they wonder why we are obese in this nation.
Sure, they changed the food pyramid now, but only after the internet, and other ideas got out there.
We are a banana republic and have been for many years.
My dad used to tell me in all things “follow the money”.
We have more propaganda than the soviets did, IMO.
Thank your stars for the internet (which they are working hard to control).
We need to get out the word that the next fake crisis is being dreamed up by liberal elites as this one is dying... Liberal elites do these scams back to back to shore up their power... and we've got to call them on it - expose the little liars quicker...
