MIT Professor Exposes Climate Change Hysteria
by Mikael Thalen
January 17th, 2014
Speaking in regards to Massachusetts’ new $50 million climate change proposal, MIT Professor Richard Lindzen, a leading figure in the climate change movement, pointed out the absurdity of blaming every weather event on global warming and climate change. “The changes that have occurred due to global warning are too small to account for,” Lindzen told WBZ-TV. “It has nothing to do with global warming, it has to do with where we live.”
Although supporting the theory of man-made global warming, Lindzen admitted that rhetoric from the political class and green movement has been nothing more than over-the-top “catastrophism.”

“Even many of the people who are supportive of sounding the global warning alarm, back off from catastrophism,” Lindzen said. “It’s the politicians and the green movement that like to portray catastrophe.”

Even more surprising, Lindzen goes on to point out the government’s obvious use of climate change alarmism to push greater state control, even warning over politicians’ use of “crony capitalism.”

“Global warming, climate change, all these things are just a dream come true for politicians. The opportunities for taxation, for policies, for control, for crony capitalism are just immense, you can see their eyes bulge,” Lindzen said.
*******
*******
Lindzen has frequently been attacked by climate alarmists for refusing to give into political pressures regarding climate. The growing number of failed predictions from the global warming crowd has only cooled the public’s belief in recent years.

From 2007 to 2009, Al Gore hysterically warned that the North Pole would be completely “ice-free” by 2013. Instead, 2013 experienced record breaking cold and major growth in Arctic ice.

Similarly, Gore made desperate warnings over the danger of increased hurricanes during the same time period. Soon after, climate scientists had trouble explaining the record low hurricanes that soon followed.

In his 1992 book “Earth in the Balance,” Gore went on to claim that global warming would soon wipe coastal areas of Florida off the map in as little as a few decades. Sea level statistics taken 18 years later revealed Gore’s predictions to be completely inaccurate.
White House Science Adviser John P. Holdren, who made failed predictions of global cooling in his 1977 book Ecoscience, attempted to blame the recent “polar vortex” on global warming. Researchers soon uncovered a 1974 Time Magazine article that blamed a cold polar vortex on global cooling instead.
Climate change alarmists have become so crazed in their beliefs that some have attempted to equate skepticism with racism, claiming any denial of global warming is a “sickness” in need of “treatment.”
Unsurprisingly, major environmental issues such as the ongoing Fukushima nuclear disaster seem to be completely ignored by Gore and company. Given the massive amount of money Al Gore has continued to make from generating climate fear, it seems unlikely that any real disaster unable to generate cash will receive proper attention.

Dems To Double Down On Climate Lie
Americans are not buying into the hoax of Global Warming/Climate Change
By J.D. Longstreet
Friday, January 17, 2014
Democrats in the US Senate are concerned, it seems, that not enough Americans are buying into the hoax of Global Warming/Climate Change. So they propose doing what Democrats always do when the public refuses to accept their lies ... ram it down our throats.
Some democrats in the Senate intend to bring pressure to bear on the broadcast and cable news networks to be more aggressive in spreading the Climate Change propaganda to their viewers.

We learned the following from the National Journal recently in an article entitled: “Democrats Plan to Pressure TV Networks Into Covering Climate Change:”
“Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, are gathering colleagues’ signatures on a letter to the networks asserting that they’re ignoring global warming.”

Senator Sanders is quoted as saying: “Sunday news shows are obviously important because they talk to millions of people, but they go beyond that by helping to define what the establishment considers to be important and what is often discussed during the rest of the week ... ” Sanders made mention of their latest move in “a press conference with most other members of Senate Democrats’ new, 19-member Climate Action Task Force.”

Somehow, the democrats seemed to have entirely missed how the public has decided—after being bombarded with Global Warming and Climate Change propaganda for many decades now—that it is, in fact, a lie, a hoax, with almost as much value as a polished cow pie.

Most Americans have figured out that the environmental movement, the greens (or Greenies), is/are sort of like a watermelon. Like that delicious melon, the environmental movement is green on the outside, but red on the inside.

The last five years with a Marxist President has caused Americans to take a second, harder look at Marxism/Socialism. ObamaCare, the latest Marxist program to be foisted on the American people has convinced even more that Marxism/Socialism is a rotten philosophy and one that will destroy our country if not stopped in its tracks immediately.

It took a while but finally Americans have seen through the lies of the Left and now see Climate Change for the vicious lie that it is.

I came across a blog site recently that I think pretty much sums up why we oughtn’t to place any trust, at all, in those who purvey the Global Warming/Climate Change lies and propaganda.

Here are some of the hilarious, spectacularly wrong predictions made on the occasion of Earth Day 1970:
“We have about five more years at the outside to do something.”Kenneth Watt, ecologist
“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”George Wald, Harvard Biologist
“We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation.”Barry Commoner, Washington University biologist
“Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.”New York Times editorial, the day after the first Earth Day
“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist
“By…[1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.”Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist
“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation.”Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day
“Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.” Peter Gunter, professor, North Texas State University
“Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….”Life Magazine, January 1970
“At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.”Kenneth Watt, Ecologist
Stanford’s Paul Ehrlich announces that the sky is falling.
“Air pollution…is certainly going to take hundreds of thousands of lives in the next few years alone.”Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist
“We are prospecting for the very last of our resources and using up the nonrenewable things many times faster than we are finding new ones.”Martin Litton, Sierra Club director
“By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, `Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, `I am very sorry, there isn’t any.’” Kenneth Watt, Ecologist
“Dr. S. Dillon Ripley, secretary of the Smithsonian Institute, believes that in 25 years, somewhere between 75 and 80 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.”Sen. Gaylord Nelson
“The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.” Kenneth Watt, Ecologist
It’s almost funny… ALMOST. My ongoing concern is that so many bought into the lies and propaganda and, what’s worse, continue to do so today. Thankfully, today the trend is to disbelieve much of the garbage as so much of it has proven false and contrived. And yet, our President and his cohort in Congress continue to press for new programs, increased funding, and more and more regulations based on what I believe is the false science of Global Warming.
I couldn’t help but notice there was no mention of those “Senate suggested” broadcast reports on Global Warming being balanced. It would seem the dems are of the mind that any report on Global Warming by the Mainstream Media would, naturally, reflect the philosophy and the narrative of the political Left. I wonder why? But that’s another story for another column.

White House Says Record Low Temperatures Caused by Global Warming

John “Planetary Regime” Holdren insults our intelligence with more quack science
Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
January 9, 2014
The White House has released a YouTube video in which Obama science czar John P. Holdren dubiously claims that the recent ‘polar vortex’ which has caused record low temperatures across many areas of the United States is caused by global warming.
*******
 
 The Polar Vortex Explained in 2 Minutes
*******
Holdren may be familiar to some of our readers as the author of a 1977 textbook entitled Ecoscience in which the current White House advisor called for a “planetary regime” to carry out forced abortions and mandatory sterilization procedures, as well as drugging the water supply, in an effort to cull the human surplus.
In the video, Holdren explains that record low temperatures which in places like Embarrass, Minnesota dropped to a staggering -45F (-43C), are caused by global warming which is responsible for the polar vortex becoming “wavier” and effecting the United States.
He also lambastes those who cite cold weather as an argument against man-made global warming (despite the fact that global warming alarmists routinely do the same thing when it gets hot in summer).

“A growing body of evidence suggests that the extreme cold being experienced by much of the United States as we speak is a pattern that we can expect to see with increasing frequency as global warming continues,” claims Holdren.

However, that’s not what the IPCC, the United Nations body which has become the supreme authority for global warming advocates, had to say in its 2007 report, which stated there was, “likely to be a decline in the frequency of cold air outbreaks… in [northern hemisphere] winter in most areas.”

Holdren is also apparently unaware of the fact that the IPCC was forced to admit last year that there hasn’t even been any global warming since 1998.

Back in 1974 Time Magazine, which 40 years later blamed the polar vortex on global warming, attributed the very same polar vortex to global cooling.

In a similar vein, back in 1986 John P. Holdren himself was busy fearmongering about a new ice age during which “carbon-dioxide induced famines” would kill 1 billion people by 2020 as part of a global cooling “eco disaster”.

The White House’s ludicrous claim that the polar vortex is caused by global warming has been rejected by most, but the Guardian published an article on Tuesday which argued that the extreme low temperatures were a consequence of shrinking Arctic ice, despite the fact that Arctic sea ice recently grew by a mammoth 533,000 square miles in a year, rendering predictions by climate alarmists of an “ice free” Arctic summer by 2013 completely embarrassing.

According to Princeton Physicist Dr. Will Happer, “Polar vortices have been around forever. They have almost nothing to do with more CO2 in the atmosphere.”
Why on earth should we believe quack scientists like Holdren who have proven themselves to be completely inaccurate when it comes to spewing fraudulent and alarmist claims about man-made climate change? Holdren was spectacularly wrong when he said that global cooling would wipe out 1 billion people just 27 years ago, and now he is saying the exact opposite, claiming that global warming is the threat.
Statists who have seized control of the environmental movement will make whatever bizarre claims necessary in order to advance their agenda of restricting personal freedom and introducing carbon taxes, which have already been implemented in many countries under different guises.

How to Rescue Global Warming
By Lee Duigon
January 9, 2014
NewsWithViews.com
These have been terrible days for Global Warming.
A shipload of Green Party pinheads, virtually every ninnie in Australia, en route to Antarctica to observe Global Warming, is frozen solid in the ice—in summertime, no less. Nooze media have tried to cover up the purpose of the voyage, focusing exclusively on the human drama of precious dingbats doing tai-chi exercises on deck while waiting to be rescued; but the word got out, and the world appreciates the irony of the situation.
Meanwhile, back in the northern hemisphere, winter is kicking our butts around the block. Low-temperature records are being set everywhere—and we’ve got another three months of it to go.
This is just terrible. Really, you look like such a putz when you’re yapping Global Warming to people whose teeth are chattering. But nobody said Saving the Planet would be easy! But Global Warming’s strongest allies in Congress now know what to do.
“Now that we only need 51 votes in the Senate to do any damn thing we please, the solution to the problem is easy,” explained House Majority Wimp Nancy Necrosis (D-Mordor). “All we have to do is outlaw every kind of Climate Change denial.”
“We’ve already got the votes,” said Senator Harry Pustule (D-Tartarus), “so we’re just gonna shut down all those Global Warming nay-sayers. Shut your mouth or go to jail! Climate Change denial is a crime.”
Leading Climate Change scientists James Schlock, USA, and David Tojo, Canada, who have long advocated criminalizing anyone who disagrees with them, endorsed the move.
“It’s about time!” Schlock said. “No one should ever be permitted to question Science.”
“Everyone who isn’t a scientist or a liberal politician is a moron, anyhow,” added Tojo. “They have no business saying anything.”
Senator Pustule listed several kinds of Climate Change denial that will be outlawed. “It isn’t only what you say,” he chortled, “but what you do—or don’t do!
“We’re going to ban all passive forms of Climate Change denial. Those are behaviors that tacitly deny that human activity is disastrously heating up the earth. This will include dressing in warm clothing, heating your home, eating indoors instead of outdoors, keeping your windows shut, or shoveling snow. They’re all sneaky ways of saying there is no Global Warming, without opening your mouth.”
“We won’t stop there,” Rep. Necrosis added. “People think they can subtly deny Global Warming by not going to the beach, not wearing shorts and sandals, not having barbecues or picnics, etc. Well, they won’t be able to get away with that for long!”
The academic world is all on board for this, according to Dr. Haman Shaman, Professor of Neo-Feminist Chicano LBGTXYZ Studies at Kurt Kobain College, University of Student Debt.
“Like, man, if people are gonna just think it’s cold, then they’ll be cold—y’know?” said the revered sage. “So, like, if you don’t let ‘em talk, and don’t let ‘em think, you can actually create a totally different reality. So, like, they gotta stop those deniers from denying, and creating a reality that’s not part of the program. Y’know?”
The entertainment community also supports outlawing Climate Change denial.
“Shut up, shut up, shut up!” reasoned Sammy J. Parasite, star of “Sniveling Zombies from Jupiter.” He would have said more, but those were all the words he could think of.
“We’ve got support for this from all 57 states,” crowed Rep. Necrosis, “and the president has promised to sign it into law just as soon as he gets back from his latest vacation. We may not even need to vote on it!
“And just wait’ll you see how nice the climate gets, once we start imposing carbon taxes. And a value-added tax. And a fair use tax, sustainability tax, and maybe a few others, too.”
Complaining about the new taxes, she warned, will be treated as yet another form of Climate Change denial, and dealt with accordingly.

Historic deep freeze across North America conclusively proves global warming is getting worse, right?
by Mike Adams
Sunday, January 05, 2014
http://www.naturalnews.com/043395_freezing_weather_global_warming_scientific_evidence.html
(NaturalNews) Global warming is getting worse. It's so bad now that it has thrust most of North America into an historic deep freeze with plummeting temperatures that haven't been seen in decades. This is absolute proof that global warming is worsening, and the way I know that is because the same people who told me that record HOT temperature last summer were caused by global warming -- "See? It's really, really hot!" -- are now saying that record COLD temperatures are also caused by global warming. "See? It's really, really cold!"
Global warming, in other words, is climate voodoo. Worshippers of the false science can invoke it to explain any event whatsoever: hurricanes (or lack of hurricanes), tornados (or lack of tornados), too much rainfall or too little rainfall, high temperatures, low temperatures, and basically any event that we used to simply call "weather."
Well, gee, if ALL weather events are evidence of global warming, then you have to ask yourself this simple, commonsense question: Which weather evidence would be evidence of global cooling? The answer is "None." Because ALL weather events are invoked as evidence of global warming.
It's delusional thinking, in other words.
"Global warming" and the mass hypnosis of the public

Like any sort of false belief system, global warming involves the mass hypnosis of the public -- a kind of hypnosis so deep that even when people are shivering from frightful cold, they can still convince themselves, in their own minds, "This is global warming!" in total denial of reality.
Global warming is based on the same sort of wishy washy thinking as flu shots. "Get a flu shot and you won't get the flu!" Except most people who get flu shots
still get the flu. In fact, the drug industry's own scientific studies show that flu shots don't work on nearly 99 out of 100 people. The shots are quackery "medical voodoo" that are so fraudulent even Merck's own scientists blew the whistle and went public with proof that the company entirely fabricated its vaccine science by spiking samples with animal antibodies. This was designed to spread the mumps and measles epidemic, thereby creating widespread panic that would result in more vaccine sales.
Global warming marketed with doomsday predictions

The global warming cultists are using the same kind of false science to spread fraudulent fear in order to sell something else: total government control over all emissions and, hence, all economic activity. If they can spread their doomsday theories far and wide enough, they can demand huge sums of money by forcing entire economies to pay "carbon taxes" which are nothing more than a high-level moneymaking scam.
The lamestream media is so desperate to push this fraudulent delusion of global warming that 98% of the media stories covering the ship full of climate scientists that got stuck in the ice and had to be rescued
failed to mention the ship was on a global warming mission. That little fact wouldn't go over well with the media's global warming delusion, so they simply decided to censor that fact from the public.
This is just one small example of the routine mental contortions that take place in the lamestream media to front a massive lie. There are many more...
Every cult is based on sheer belief, not real evidence
Like any cult, global warming is based on "belief" instead of actual evidence. People who push global warming do not need to see any real evidence. They only need to have their beliefs reinforced by the media and by others who share their irrational beliefs. That alone is enough to confirm that they are right.
Remember, the lamstream media is the same media that claims the national debt doesn't matter, Obamacare is awesome, you don't need the Bill of Rights, war is fun, GMOs are safe to eat and vaccines will increase your IQ. This is the same media where MSNBC, the most wretched tabloid anti-journalism organization to ever exist,
makes fun of adopted black children or insists that people should poop in the mouths of political personalities they don't like.
The same media that says GMOs are safe, vaccines are awesome, war is fun and all white people are racist is now peddling global warming doom-and-gloom theories that fly in the face of reality. They even claim this extreme cold weather is caused by "global warming" and that if you don't agree to pay more carbon taxes next year, the cold will get even worse. Yep, "warming" is now invoked to explain "freezing."
How stupid does this get? If the same media were pushing a theory of "global speeding" and claiming the Earth's spin was accelerating and we would all die from being flung into outer space, they would also proclaim that a slowing of the Earth's spin was yet more
evidence of "global speeding." Slowing is speeding, you see. Just like cooling is warming. Who needs logic when you own the media and can push total lies day after day to a mind-numbed public dosed up on fluoride and Prozac?
Delusional thinking explained
One of the mental contortions frequently invoked to support delusional thinking is to filter out all the evidence that contradicts your current belief. We are all guilty of this to some degree, but global warming conspiracy theorists take it to a new extreme.
Here's how it works: When the Midwest suffers a terribly hot drought, global warming theorists proclaim the drought is due to global warming. "It's hotter, see?" That actually makes logical sense at some level. But by the same logic, when a deep freeze sweeps across the same region, they would logically have to concede that cold is the opposite of hot, and therefore if extreme hot weather is evidence of global warming, then extreme cold weather must be evidence against global warming. This is the litmus test of scientific sanity, you see: If a person is a consistent, clear thinker, they must concede that this current freeze is, indeed, evidence that the planet is not warming.
But that's not what happens: They proclaim that cold weather, too, is yet more proof of global warming! And with that statement, all their credibility vanishes. Because at that point they are admitting that, essentially, all events are somehow evidence of global warming. All "weather events" somehow magically support their theory.
That idea is, of course, absurd. There are weather events during periods of global cooling, obviously. When the planet is cooling, the wind doesn't stop blowing. The Earth doesn't stop rotating. Earthquakes and hurricanes don't magically cease. Thus, a rational person must be forced to admit that, yes, there are storms, and freak weather events, and droughts and floods when the planet is cooling, too. (The planet has warmed and cooled many times in its long history. These are natural cycles.)
But explaining all this is a waste of time to global warming conspiracy theorists in the first place, because they are not engaged in an exercise of logic and rational thinking. The evidence doesn't matter. Global warming is their religion, and thus no amount of evidence, or explanation, or logic, or rationality will ever overcome their religious belief in the doom-and-gloom conspiracy theory that we will all soon die as our planet is destroyed.
At some level, it's quite hilarious because many of the global warming faith believers are the very same people who make fun of conservative Christians and their belief in "the rapture" which essentially says much the same thing. Somehow, "Christians are stupid," they say, for believing that we will all be destroyed in a massive clean sweep of human civilization caused by God, but they say "we are smart" for believing we will all be destroyed in a massive clean sweep of human civilization caused by carbon emissions.

Since Liberals Demand Accountability: Can Global Warming “Experts” be Disappeared?

Losers Should Leave Town, as a Possible New Ice Age Appears!
By Kelly OConnell
In like a lion, out like a lamb—or, it began with a growl, but ended with a whimper! What did? Why, Global Warming, naturally. Of course, it wasn’t supposed to end like this! Midwest wind-chill temperatures could hit -70˚ tonight, as meteorologists predict the lowest readings in decades. Meanwhile, in the antarctic, pinned near glaciers, a second ice breaker must be freed by the US Coast Guard.
This, after the first ice-breaker became trapped while attempting to rescue a research ship cruising to the South Pole to prove Global Warming! The marooned research ship only served to highlight the fact that the South Pole ice shelf has never been thicker.
In other words, the world is not going to fry anytime soon. But, speaking of which—how about puttings all the “expert’s” feet to the fire for fear-mongering, predicting disaster and demanding ruinously expensive corrections?
But isn’t it time we hold self-professed liberal “experts” accountable for all the many times they are mistaken? Especially when these mistakes cost society wealth and lives? After all, if leftists were screaming for the head of top duck Phil Robertson, for his sins—shouldn’t they be good sports and voluntarily drop out?
Perhaps even more importantly, our society must keep track of the failures of its self-appointed experts to make sure we are getting the very best direction possible. And this just isn’t about Global Warming, but a thousand liberal fantasies, perpetually foisted upon a credulous public with short memories, little logical skills, and much hope for a coming utopia where work is easy, recreation almost limitless, risks few and rewards bountiful.
As Jackson Browne once warned, in Before the Deluge, those who believe they understand nature may be destroyed while mistakenly trying to protect it:
Some of them were dreamers
And some of them were fools
Who were making plans and thinking of the future
With the energy of the innocent
They were gathering the tools
They would need to make their journey back to nature
While the sand slipped through the opening
And their hands reached for the golden ring
With their hearts they turned to each other’s heart for refuge
In the troubled years that came before the deluge
Some of them were angry
At the way the earth was abused
By the men who learned how to forge her beauty into power
And they struggled to protect her from them
Only to be confused
By the magnitude of the fury in the final hour
And when the sand was gone and the time arrived
In the naked dawn only a few survived
And in attempts to understand a thing so simple and so huge
Believed that they were meant to live after the deluge

 
I. Ship of Fools—What Happened to Global Warming?
Always a theory at risk of imminent exposure, Man-made Global Warming (AGW—Anthropomorphic Global Warming), we should be surprised that AGW lasted as long as it did. For Global Warming is popular, anecdotal “science,” wholly dependent upon the credulity and popular support of the masses. In fact, Global Warming is no different than phrenology, the notion that bumps in the skull determine personality.
The theory behind Global Warming is that the rise in atmospheric carbon would inexorably lead to a rise in global temperature. One attractive aspect of this theory is that it is so large its almost impossible to verify. Yet one easy proof was needed—overall, global temperatures had to rise, on average. But, when this did not occur, the Global Warming crew had to argue that it was not warming, but climate change which was the issue. Yet, this created a problem of there being no way to prove Global Warming, any longer. And a science, without proof, is no science at all.

Yet, it took an academic scandal, in the release of private emails from East Anglia University, to cast doubts on the intentions of the experts. Once the emails were hacked, the public began to realize all was not as it seemed. Instead of neutral and high-mined scientists, toiling in happy obscurity, letting the facts lead where they would, something else appeared to be afoot. Instead of pure science, a seething hotbed of politics, publicity, power and ego boiled beneath the surface, like a madman’s laboratory.

II. Global Warming’s Carbon Credit Confidence Game

The price of addressing Manmade Global Warming was going to be absolutely massive. This was the beauty of the scam. You couldn’t really put a price on saving the earth for the whole human race, not to mention the rest of the animals. Any price to save all life would be cheap.

For some reason, carbon was made the devil of the world. Yet, one of America’s most eminent scientists, Freeman Dyson claims such concerns cannot be aided by an addiction to bad computer models and poor data gathering (video 1, video 2). Dyson stresses that, not only is the ground temperature impossible to measure, but not the chief concern, anyway. He claims Stratospheric Cooling is mankind’s biggest threat.

Since carbon was singled out, it had to be managed. This was done by encouraging nations to lower their “carbon footprint,” or to trade with poorer, less developed nations for their “carbon credits.” The net effect of this was to be for wealthier countries to exchange with less established ones the right to commence economic activity in exchange for cash. In addition to supposedly reducing carbon, and therefore Global Warming, this model fulfills Karl Marx’s command to reallocate wealth from rich to poor. And a giant marketplace was being assembled, which would be directed by such persons as Al Gore, to trade carbon credits.

Coincidental, or not—the solution to Global Warming just happened to coexist with the progressive, group-based answer to world inequality, poverty and war. Yet deep thinkers like Eric Hoffer or Thomas Sowell warn against the simplistic allure of joining a mindless, ideological mass movement. Yes, even one whose intent was to save the earth. Eric Hoffer, in The True Believer, explained why people joined mindless movements;
Here is the means by which a mass movement accentuates and perpetuates the individual incompleteness of its adherents. By elevating dogma above reason, the individual’s intelligence is prevented from becoming self-reliant. His innermost craving is for a new life - a rebirth - or, failing this, a chance to acquire new elements of pride, confidence, hope, a sense of purpose and worth by identification with a holy cause. An active mass-movement offers them opportunities for both. If they join the movement as full converts they are reborn to a new life in its close-knit collective body, or if attracted as sympathizers they find elements of pride, confidence, and purpose by identifying with the efforts, achievements, and prospects of the movement.

Likewise, Thomas Sowell, in The Vision of the Anointed, describes how the elites use the ruse of a contrived crisis to justify massive intervention to forestall a catastrophe. The intervention is then implemented, which then causes a wholly avoidable, created manmade disaster.

But according to the Guardian, “Economic impact of global warming is costing the world more than $1.2 trillion a year, wiping 1.6% annually from global GDP.” In fact, even if there were Global Warming, how would anyone measure its effects with any certainty?

According to Forbes, despite having no clear Global Warming policy, the US is spending beaucoup bucks fighting the menace:
According to the GAO, annual federal climate spending has increased from $4.6 billion in 2003 to $8.8 billion in 2010, amounting to $106.7 billion over that period. The money was spent in four general categories: technology to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, science to understand climate changes, international assistance for developing countries, and wildlife adaptation to respond to actual or expected changes. Technology spending, the largest category, grew from $2.56 billion to $5.5 billion. The U.S. Government spent $32.5 billion on climate studies between 1989 and 2009. This doesn’t count about $79 billion more spent for climate change technology research, foreign aid and tax breaks for “green energy.”

More shockingly, the amounts spent by US business for green, standards is appalling:
Compliance with green regulations costs the U.S. economy more than $1.75 trillion per year — about 12%-14% of GDP, and half of the $3.456 trillion Washington is currently spending. The annual cost is closer to $1.8 trillion when an estimated $55.4 billion regulatory administration and policing budget is included.

Overall, even Global Warming boosters are forced to admit there has been no temperature increase for 15-20 years. Further, the computer models used for predictions have repeatedly failed to predict future events. And most of the disaster projections ares based upon these. Finally, it has become impossible to ignore that the earth is simply not getting warmer, but cooler—according to the experience of most folks.

III. New Rule: Bogus Policy = Loser Leaves Town

In days past, when a public official or prominent professional advocated policies that turned ruinous, there used to be a day of reckoning. Now, instead, leftists are allowed to make any number of false, mistaken, and even patently dishonest statements without suffering any consequence. This is because ideology has so taken over our universities, government, media and political processes that citizens are utterly distracted. No longer are we trained in logic, scientific thinking or common sense.
Many scientists, politicians, and celebrities have joined the effort to force Global Warming measures down the throats of Americans. Should not these persons also bear the risk of trying to influence public policy in America, which, if mistaken, could pointlessly cause mass unemployment and even economic collapse? After all, noted science expert and singer Sheryl Crowe wants Americans to use just one square of toilet paper per trip.
Many scientists have colluded in the scam, in a mad dash for fame, power and wealth. Finally, the average American has caught onto the hoax, as about 7 in 10 believe science is being falsified to support the Global Warming racket.
But, occasionally a scientist is held accountable for Global Warming dishonesty. For example, the US researcher who wrote a misleading paper suggesting polar bears were dying off because of increased heat, was investigated and terminated.
Typical of the superficial Hollywood leftism, high school graduate Leonardo DiCaprio, did voice over work for the 2011 scaremonger Global Warming documentary, The 11th Hour. It’s interesting how many entertainers seem educated when reading a script, but hopeless with complex subjects on their own.
In February 2013, a number of Hollywood celebrities, including Alec Baldwin, Susan Sarandon, Woody Harrelson, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Edward Norton, Adam Levine and Morgan Freeman bought a full page ad in a WA DC newspaper, demanding Obama “phase out” fossil fuels, stating:
Your legacy as 44th president of the United States rests firmly on your leadership on climate disruption. Only the president has the power to lead an effort on the scale and with the urgency we need to phase out fossil fuels and lead America, and the world, in a clean energy revolution.
But what to do about the massive amount of misinformation put out by either willful or wholly ignorant pseudo-science advocates?

The Ship of Global Warming Folly
Stuck in the Antarctic Ice, Global Warming scientists
By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh
I ponder the 1549 German woodcut, “Ship of Fools,” Albrecht Durer’s illustrations, and even Hieronymus Bosch’s artistic allegory of humanity’s folly sailing aboard a ship without a pilot, a stark reflection of what humans do, sometimes ignorant of their own direction, pursuing untrue and unattainable objectives.
The January 2, 2014 article in The Australian, “Stuck on a ship of (cold) fools,” talks about the Australasian Antarctic Expedition from the University of New South Wales, led by Professor Chris Turney, on a mission to trace the Antarctic expedition of 1911 when Douglas Mawson’s ship was not icebound. Since then, the sea ice has been increasing despite United Nation’s International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) faulty forecasts based on its global warming modeling.
The global warming scientists, journalists, and concerned individuals, stuck aboard a ship in 15 ft. thick ice, have set out to prove that “the East Antarctic ice sheet is melting.” The University of New South Wales website describes in alarming tones “an increasing body of evidence” that proves “melting and collapse from ocean warming.”
The irony of the mission which had to be rescued by the icebreaker Aurora Australis, plucking scientists from the stuck Russian MV Akademik Schokalskiy, is that helicopters and other fossil fuel-driven, carbon-emitting machines and ships were used; there is no green energy, wind or solar vessel yet that could perform such a rescue job – the scientists would have been stuck until the ice melted. A second ship, the Chinese icebreaker Snow Dragon, sent in to help, called off the mission about 6.7 nautical miles from the Russian ship.
According to Fox News, when the ship was trapped, it was 2 miles from open water. The rapidly expanding ice placed it 13 miles from open water. It was so bitter cold, the extreme low temperatures coupled with the chill factor, were unforgiving to unprotected human skin.
Does the overwhelming evidence that temperatures around the globe have been cooler in the last 17 years and polar ice caps have increased in size in 2013 by 65 percent deter the global warming scientists and their alarmist Gaia worshippers from imposing their insane agenda? The answer is a resounding no. Controlling how we live is more important than reality and fact. As a savvy person said, “You might be a climate denier if… You get your ship trapped in ice that you denied was there.”
The same scientists from the University of New South Wales where the ill-fated cruise ship to the Antarctic originated are doubling down on global warming/climate change agenda, saying that the “world’s climate is warming faster than feared because predictions were too ‘optimistic’ and overestimated the cooling impact of clouds.” Professor Steven Sherwood, from the University of New South Wales, told The Sydney Morning Herald that “The net effect of [climate change] is you have less cloud cover.” (Jonathan Pearlman, Telegraph, Jan. 2014)
Meanwhile, the blizzard dubbed Hercules is slamming northeastern United States, dumping so much snow that nearly 2,300 flights had to be cancelled, JFK airport was shut down, highways were closed, and the governor of New York declared a state of emergency. It is so bitter cold, exposed skin can freeze in 15 minutes.
“Consensus” scientists have been successful in convincing the EPA under the Bush administration to remove the inexpensive Edison bulbs on account that they used up too much electricity, causing global warming through the use of “dirty” coal that generates the said electricity (Thomas Edison must be rolling in his grave), and replace them with expensive and toxic CFL bulbs that contain mercury, a potent neurotoxin too dangerous for thermometers. “When a CFL breaks in your home, it releases mercury vapor.” To clean up the mess, the EPA instructions are:
Seal off the room and turn off the air condition system (HVAC).
Don’t vacuum because the mercury will spread.
Follow 3 pages of detailed instructions

You might as well wear a Hazmat suit to protect yourself when removing a broken CFL bulb. Don’t you feel protected and secure in our home, a safe haven for you and your children, compliments of environmental zealots who know what is best for you?

Americans Spent $7.45B in 3 Years Helping Other Countries Deal With ‘Climate Change’
By Patrick Goodenough
January 3, 2014

http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/patrick-goodenough/americans-spent-745b-3-years-helping-other-countries-deal-climate
(CNSNews.com) – American taxpayers spent $7.45 billion to help developing countries cope with climate change in fiscal years 2010 through 2012, according to a federal government report submitted to the United Nations on a subject that Secretary of State John Kerry described as “a truly life-and-death challenge.”
That sum of $7.45 billion, which reached more than 120 countries through bilateral and multilateral channels, met President Obama’s “commitment to provide our fair share” of a collective pledge by developed nations to provide a total of nearly $30 billion in “fast start finance” (FSF), the report stated.
The pledge was made at a Dec. 2009 U.N. climate conference in Copenhagen, and the FSF funding aims to support developing countries adapt to and cope with phenomena blamed on climate change, such as droughts and rising sea levels.

*******
“International assistance for climate change continues to be a major priority for the United States,” the administration said in its “Climate Action Report,” submitted to the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) on Wednesday.
It noted that since the U.S. ratified the convention in 1992, its international climate funding had increased from “virtually zero” to an average of $2.5 billion each year in the 2010-2012 FSF period.
“During the period, average annual appropriated climate assistance increased fourfold compared with 2009 funding levels,” the report said. “U.S. climate assistance has increased in the context of an overall increasing foreign assistance budget.”
According to UNFCCC data, of the $7.45 billion in U.S. funding, $4.7 billion was congressionally-appropriated assistance while development finance and export credit support accounted for a further $2.7 billion of public money.
It’s time to ‘do what our faiths require of us’

In a cover letter accompanying the report, Kerry underlined the high priority the administration – and himself personally – accords to the issue.
“Climate change is one of the most urgent and profoundly complex challenges we face,” he wrote. “That’s why, everywhere I travel as Secretary of State – in every meeting, here at home and across the more than 280,000 miles I’ve traveled since I raised my hand and took the oath to serve in this office – I have made this issue a top priority.”
Without directly mentioning those scientists and others who question the “consensus” on climate change, Kerry reiterated his view that the science is incontrovertible and implied that anyone arguing otherwise lacked “conscience or common sense.”
“Today, all the scientific evidence is telling us that we cannot afford to delay the reckoning with climate change,” he said. “With each passing day, the case grows more compelling and the costs of inaction grow beyond anything that anyone with conscience or common sense should be willing to contemplate.”
Kerry pointed to the most report by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), released last September, and summed it up as follows: “Bottom line: Climate change is real, it’s happening now, and human beings are the cause.”
(The report’s actual wording was, “It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century.” The language was somewhat stronger than the previous IPCC report, in 2007, which asserted that global warming was “very likely” man-made.)
“In the face of these risks and these warnings, it is time for all of us to do what the science tells us we must, to do what our faiths require of us, and to do what our fragile planet demands of us: It’s time to take strong action to combat a truly life-and-death challenge,” Kerry stated.
Much more to come

FSF programs funded by the U.S. cover a wide range, including helping Peru and Nepal to deal with glacier-related risks, working on making Mozambique’s coastal cities more resilient to “sea level rise and other climate change stresses,” and assisting Pakistan to address its power shortage, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and its reliance on fossil fuel.
The funding directed to the FSF channel in 2010-2012 is a drop in the bucket compared to what is to come. At that same 2009 conference in Copenhagen the U.S. and other developed nations in a longer-term commitment undertook to set up a $100 billion-a-year Green Climate Fund by 2020. The money is meant to come from public and private sources.
“The United States is prepared to work with other countries toward a goal of jointly mobilizing $100 billion a year by 2020 to address the climate change needs of developing countries,” then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said at Copenhagen. “We expect this funding will come from a wide variety of sources, public and private, bilateral and multilateral, including alternative sources of finance.”
Since the GCF was launched in 2011 few nations have begun to direct money to its coffers (as of June 30, 2013 it had received just $7.5 million, from seven European countries plus South Korea, Japan and Australia.)
But officials want that to change this year, as UNFCCC executive secretary Christiana Figueres made clear while speaking at the opening of the GCF’s new headquarters in South Korea on Dec. 4.
“Governments now have a crucial tool at their disposal to leverage billions in finance for developing counties to green their economies and increase their resilience to the inevitable effects of climate change,” she said.
“As soon as the final modalities are clarified in 2014, governments must capitalize the fund. This is essential so that developing countries know that the developed world will deliver on its promise to help the poor and vulnerable gain access to the finance and technology they need.”
In the report sent to the UNFCCC this week the administration outlined its commitment in mobilizing public and private funding in working towards the GCF goal.
“Maintaining a strong core of public climate finance is essential, and the United States intends to maintain its commitment to climate change as an important component in the U.S. assistance budget,” it said.
“Private investment will inevitably play an increasingly important role as developing countries put mitigation and adaptation policies and actions into place. The nation is working to combine its significant, but finite, public resources with targeted, smart policies to mobilize maximum private investment into climate-friendly activities.”

The Global Warming Tipping Point is Near

Andrew Thomas
January 2, 2014
Malcolm Gladwell's great book The Tipping Point presents the case that sudden seismic shifts in society can result from small events, if the right factors are present. Tipping points happen when momentum toward an idea builds and finally crosses a threshold where it is evident that a major cultural change has occurred. The global warming tipping point is coming, but not the one anticipated by climate change "experts."
Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) theory has been dominant for the past three decades as absolute fact in the public mind. In the last several years, however, cracks in the fortress of "settled science" have appeared, and public opinion has begun to shift. Increasingly, alarmist predictions have failed to come to fruition.
In 2004, NASA's chief scientist James Hansen authoritatively announced that there is only a ten-year window to act on AGW (presumably by transferring mass quantities of taxpayer funds to global warmist causes) before climate Armageddon destroys humanity. Well, that window has now shut tight, and AGW is AWOL.
Al Gore, the high priest of AGW theory, has closed all of his Alliance for Climate Protection field offices, and laid off 90% of his staff. Contributions have all but dried up since 2008.
Australia's conservative government has severely curtailed the country's climate change initiatives and is in the process of repealing its business-killing carbon tax. A group of German scientists predicts dramatic global cooling over the next 90 years toward a new "little ice age."
Of course, even many "low information" folks have an awareness of the record increase in Arctic sea ice, as well as the current highly-publicized predicament of the cadre of wealthy global warmists stuck in record-high sea ice while on a cruise to the Antarctic to prove the absence of sea ice.
Now the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has quietly downgraded their prediction for global warming for the next 30 years in the final draft of their landmark "Fifth Assessment Report." The effect of this is that they are tacitly admitting that the computer models they have religiously relied-upon for decades as "proof" of AGW theory are dead wrong.
The tipping point is near. I can smell it.

Global Warming Scientists Still Trapped In Record-Level Antarctic Ice
“Sea ice is disappearing due to climate change,” scientists say as rescue ships fail to breach ice to save them

December 30, 2013
The scientific ship currently trapped in Antarctic ice is carrying a team of climate change scientists who keep harping the dangers of “global warming” even after multiple rescue ships failed in their attempts to save them.
On Christmas Day, the ice-strengthened MV Akademik Shokalskiy got stuck in Antarctic ice during her Australasian Antarctic Expedition led by Australian global warming professor Chris Turney.
“Bad news: [Rescue ship] Aurora couldn’t get through,” Turney tweeted earlier today. “Tried twice [but] low visibility and heavy ice. [She's] returning to open water.”
“Try again tomorrow?”
Turney and his team launched this voyage to study “ocean warming” while retracing the route of the original Australasian Antarctic Expedition, which was launched in 1911 by Australian geologist Douglas Mawson.
The official web site for the expedition suggests that the ice in East Antarctica, where the Akademik Shokalskiy is stranded, is threatened by this “warming.”
“There is an increasing body of evidence, including by the AAE members, that have identified parts of the East Antarctic which are highly susceptible to melting and collapse from ocean warming,” the site continues.
But as blogger Anthony Watts points out, Mawson’s team landed in Antarctica under much warmer conditions in 1912:
 *******

Additionally, the National Snow & Ice Data Center reports that the current extent of the Antarctic sea ice is two standard deviations above normal:
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration even announced back in September that Antarctic ice reached its largest extent since measurements began in 1979.
Yet Turney’s team is still defiant to these facts even as they stay stranded in record levels of ice that rescue ships have not yet breached.
“Sea ice is disappearing due to climate change,” they announced. “But here it is building up.”

Rush Holt, New Jersey U.S. Senate Candidate: 'Millions Will Die' Due To Climate Change
The Huffington Post
07/24/2013
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/24/rush-holt-climate-change_n_3645839.html
Climate change is becoming a heated issue in New Jersey’s special U.S. Senate election.
“On climate change, either we take real action, or millions will die," Democratic Senate candidate Rush Holt candidly told voters in an Internet-only campaign ad released Monday.
The spot was promptly criticized by Republican Senate candidate Steve Lonegan, who called the ad "outrageous." Holt and Lonegan are competing in an Aug. 13 primary for the seat left vacant by U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D), who died last month.
"They have no proof of such a ridiculous statement," Lonegan said. He then posed the question to the other Democratic Senate candidates, asking if they also believe Holt's "radical, irresponsible and silly statements."
"I want to know if they really buy into this far left extremism," Lonegan said. Lonegan is one of the state’s most conservative Republicans and has headed the New Jersey chapter of Americans for Prosperity.
Holt, who refers to himself as an energy scientist during his 15 seconds on camera, has a Ph.D. in physics and has taught the subject at Swarthmore College. Holt has also received the endorsement of seven Nobel laureates.
The candidate used the spot released Monday to promote a carbon tax to reduce emissions.
The answer is a carbon tax, and I’m going to fight for it,” he said. “We can do this.”
NJ.com reported that Holt has since defended the statements, saying that global warming is "not hysteria. It's documented."
“I think it’s no exaggeration at all to say that millions will die. And in fact there’s pretty good evidence that millions already have died because of climate change,” Holt said in a Star-Ledger editorial board meeting Wednesday.
In the Democratic primary, Holt faces Newark Mayor Cory Booker, U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone and Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver. On the Republican side, Lonegan is facing off against physician Alieta Eck.
Lonegan's denial of climate change has been slammed by Oliver, who calls him an "anti-science Republican with his head placed firmly in the sand on the crucial problems."
"Lonegan’s radical agenda is dumbing down America by denying accepted scientific fact and placing oil profits ahead of middle class people affected by calamities like Superstorm Sandy," Oliver said in a statement released by her campaign.
New Jersey politicians have been caught in the spotlight for their opinions on the scientific theory before. In May, Gov. Chris Christie (R) told NBC's Matt Lauer that he could not be sure of the relationship between Hurricane Sandy and climate change.
“I haven’t been shown any definitive proof yet that that’s what caused it," Christie said. "And this is just, listen, this is a distraction. I’ve got a place to rebuild here and people want to talk to me about esoteric theories.”
