“Global Warming, as we think we know it, doesn’t exist. And I am not the only one trying to make people open up their eyes and see the truth. But few listen, despite the fact that I was the first Canadian Ph.D. in Climatology and I have an extensive background in climatology, especially the reconstruction of past climates and the impact of climate change on human history and the human condition. Few listen, even though I have a Ph.D, (Doctor of Science) from the University of London, England and was a climatology professor at the University of Winnipeg. For some reason (actually for many), the World is not listening. Here is why.”
This guy is so full of himself, he can’t hear the ice cracking due to the sound of clapping in his ears. He’s not through however, in reminding us of our his credentials:
“Since I obtained my doctorate in climatology from the University of London, Queen Mary College, England my career has spanned two climate cycles.” Global Warming: The Cold, Hard Facts?
The data simply doesn’t support the claim that “humans are not the cause” or “there is no evidence that we are, or could ever cause global climate change”.
But it only takes a little bit of digging to disprove some “facts”.
I am not alone in this journey against the prevalent myth. Several well-known names have also raised their voices. Michael Crichton, the scientist, writer and filmmaker is one of them. In his latest book, “State of Fear” he takes time to explain, often in surprising detail, the flawed science behind Global Warming and other imagined environmental crises.
Novelists are good sources of scientific fact. And so is Richard Lindzen:
Another cry in the wildenerness is Richard Lindzen’s. He is an atmospheric physicist and a professor of meteorology at MIT, renowned for his research in dynamic meteorology – especially atmospheric waves. He is also a member of the National Academy of Sciences and has held positions at the University of Chicago, Harvard University and MIT. Linzen frequently speaks out against the notion that significant Global Warming is caused by humans. Yet nobody seems to listen.
Maybe because he’s a paid shill.
Ross Gelbspan, journalist and author, wrote a 1995 article in Harper’s Magazine which was very critical of Lindzen and other global warming skeptics. In the article, Gelbspan reports Lindzen charged “oil and coal interests $2,500 a day for his consulting services; [and] his 1991 trip to testify before a Senate committee was paid for by Western Fuels and a speech he wrote, entitled ‘Global Warming: the Origin and Nature of Alleged Scientific Consensus,’ was underwritten by OPEC.”
In November 2004, climate change skeptic Richard Lindzen was quoted saying he’d be willing to bet that the earth’s climate will be cooler in 20 years than it is today. When British climate researcher James Annan contacted him, however, Lindzen would only agree to take the bet if Annan offered a 50-to-1 payout. Subsequent offers of a wager were also refused by Pat Michaels, Chip Knappenberger, Piers Corbyn, Myron Ebell, Zbigniew Jaworowski, Sherwood Idso and William Kininmonth. At long last, however, Annan has persuaded Russian solar physicists Galina Mashnich and Vladimir Bashkirtsev to take a $10,000 bet. “There isn’t much money in climate science and I’m still looking for that gold watch at retirement,” Annan says. “A pay-off would be a nice top-up to my pension.” Source Watch
We’ve seen this kind of underhanded jerrymandering going on before. Over 435 documented cases of malfeasance and intereference by the Bush Administration alone. And paid “experts” by the oil cartels abound. There’s a lot on the Net about Lindzen if your interested. A bit more here.
Who you going to believe? Follow the money. Always follow the money and you’ll usually get to the bottom of the issue.
These paid shills would love to have us to believe that there is no correlation between the rise of greenhouse gasses and the planet warming up. Nor is there any correlation between the development of civilization, especially the industrial age, and the rise of greenhouse gasses. Nor of course, is there any correlation between increased human activity and explosive population growth and the rise of greenhouse gasses. All these things are simply coincidental, thank you very much, please deposit my check in my Swiss bank account.
The Bush Administration would love to have you believe this claptrap, as would OPEC and several other major conglomerates. They’d rather shitcan the entire f*cking planet for another 20 years in a futile quest for even more profits, then deal with the problem. Where are these morons even going to spend their billions? And on what? Rocketships to Mars, leaving the rest of humanity behind, choking on the excesses of corporate pollution? Exxon claimed $36 billion in profits for 2005, and $50 billion for 2006. You could graph the profits of companies like Exxon right along side the “climate change skeptics” and draw your own conclusions.
There is daily evidence being reported around the world that the planet is warming up, dangerously so. Affecting every single living biosphere, the temperture increases are tracking perfectly alongside the rise in human activity, pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. There is absolutely no doubt about our contributions. Nobody is arguing the fact that volcanic activity is a major contributer, but this is also something which we cannot even remotely hope to control.
Scientific profits, I mean “skeptics”, can be not-so politely ignored, having been conclusively regulated to the dustbin of the flat-earthers and sun revolving around the Earth crowd. The planet needs to move on, and deal with the reality of what is actually occuring.
